I just took apart my laptop to clean the dust off and to apply some Arctic Silver to my CPU and noticed something very strange. When I went to remove the CPU it would not come off. The little screw lock turns and opens but the CPU will not come off. Its almost as if it is glued on or something. I am 100% sure the locking mechanism is opening. This is very disturbing since i was looking to possibly upgrade my CPU to a core 2 in the near future. My Dell warranty is up so im not sure what Dell will say if I contact them. Anyone have any idea what I should do.
