    i have an old slot1 processor in my tekram mobo (http://www.tekram.com/Hot_Products.asp?Product=P6B40-A4X ). i found a site ( http://www.compgeeks.com/products.asp?cat=CPU#Slot 1 CPU's (Celeron/P2/P3) ) that sells them, yeah i didnt even know they were sold anywhere anymore. anyways, my question is how do i remove the current processor? I tried to do it once but it seems to be stuck. it looks like theres a black restrainer type thing on either side of the processor, which the fan is attached to, i think.. anyone know how to remove it?

    There is a locking mechanism on each side, some slip upward to unlock, some downward. Once you unlock the mechanism the processor should pull right out

    I believe it should be down to unlock, but it's been awhile
