I'm a rookie at upgrading CPU's but I dove into it anyway.
I installed the actual CPU unit and it fit just fine. However, the heatsink will not connect properly. The heatsink to my old CPU (intel g630) installs simply with screws and it worked perfectly fine.
The new heatsink that came with the i5 has a weird plastic/screw mechanism. You have to line up the plastic parts to the screw holes on the motherboard and then press down on the plastic parts until the actual screw is showing and it should snap right it. I've tried this in every direction and it simply will not go it....
Can anyone offer any help? Can i just use my old heatsink?
