Question Installing LGA 775 processor

So I'm having trouble installing a processor. I open the latches and everything and put it down softly, but i can't close the latch with the processor there without damaging it!

Here is where I am at right now: http://pwp.netcabo.pt/0245446801/images/P3174522.jpg

But I can't close the latch like here: http://pwp.netcabo.pt/0245446801/images/P3174523.jpg

How do I do it?

Make sure you have the CPU lined up correctly.

If you look at the pix, you can see the angled corner (lower right). It has to line up so that the CPU is in the correct psition.
