Actually, interesting story, I was given a compaq a couple of days ago to fix up because it wasn't starting. After a couple of failed attempts, I decided to try removing and reassembling everything.
Upon removing the heatsink I found that the CPU was actually "glued" into the socket so to speak with some sort of adhesive so it couldn't be removed. I was thinking to myself, what a god awful idea.
Turns out the guy was using a magnetic screwdriver in the case to install a new wireless network card, and touched the motherboard, which thus fried it I guess. Oh well, I didn't see any use in some stupid socket that has its chip stuck in it anyways.
