Remove A 939 Processor

Removing a 939 processor is a job that can be done with just a screwdriver in less than 30 minutes. The 939 processor is a central processing unit (CPU) with 939 pins that are plugged into the motherboard. Removing the processor is a matter of pulling it out of the motherboard by hand after you remove the heat sink assembly from the top of the chip.


1. Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet before attempting to remove the 939 processor. Disconnect the power cord from the power supply in the back of the computer case and unfasten the screws that are holding the computer cover onto the case with a screwdriver.

2. Slide the cover off the computer and set it off to the side. Unplug the electrical wire connector of the heat sink fan from the motherboard by hand.

3. Lift the levers on both sides of the heat sink fan so they are straight up, and unfasten the plastic clips on the sides of the heat sink from the motherboard.

4. Pull the heat sink and fan assembly straight up off the motherboard and set it aside.

5. Lift the 939 processor off the motherboard carefully and remove it from the computer.
