lift the lever on the side of the processor, then gently lift the processor up.

Try prying it out with something. It could be stuck in there with the thermal paste or something, in which case you could pry it out.

how would it be thermal paste, the themal paste goes on top of the cpu between it and the heatsink not under in the socket. I tried to pry it out with an xacto and it chipped the edge, not good
