Do you have the documentation of your motherboard? If not then look up the manufacturer of your motherboard and print out the documentation. That documentation should tell you how to take that apart. You will also need to purchase some thermal paste to put on the new heatsink if the new processcor does not come with it.

Can you post up an picture of your underside of your laptop?
The problem with replacing laptop Heatsinks is that you need to get to the laptop's motherboard. This can be easy, or it can be a royal pain.
