Installing AMD 64 38000 onto New Mobo Problem

I'm trying to install this CPU onto a new mobo, and I'm sure its in but its not "One Side is in and the other is not" and I'm sure its lined in properly any suggestions???

Take it out and check again. One corner will have some pins chamfered off, match it with the socket.

Check that all the pins are straight and that none are slightly bent.

Also what motherboard are you using?

As you trying to fit it in a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket, it should, when correctly oriented, drop in freely. If it will not there is something wrong, ie a bent pin.

Agree with Mr Mistoffelees it should just drop in.
