    The computer has an ASUS K8V - MX S motherboard and AMD 3000+ CPU.

    The computer traveled many miles, in an upright position.

    The fan broke off, from the heat sink. I attempted to remove the heat sink, by pulling straight up. The CPU came out of the socket, attached to the heat sink. The socket's ZIF lever is locked / clipped in place.

    After I put the CPU back into the socket, with lever up, then lock down the lever, the CPU stays in place.

    I put a new heatsink, with fan, on the CPU.

    Now, no video from the onboard chip. No video from a PCI video card. A smell of something burning [ no smoke; no flames ] is present.

    I attempted to remove the new heatsink, but when I did, the CPU again remained affixed to the heatsink.

    SO >> what is the correct way to remove the heatsink?

    Thanks.
