Heat Sink Chip Stuck

Installed Amd Phemon II 6 with stock heat sink on msi board installed in case with ram and power supple and nothing happened. Did psu jump outside the case and then tested case fans and dvd drive. Did not check voltages as had no equipment.

Took mb out of the case and hooked up psu and no fan turned on. Proceeded to clear mb for rma back to msi. Attempted to remove amd stock heat snk and the chip came away with it.

What can I do to safely remove the chip?
