I recently recieved an Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz 512 KB cache, 800 MHz side bus CPU to upgrade the 1.8 GHz one currently in my machine. The computer is a 2002 Compaq Evo D510 Small Form Factor. I know that the CPU is compatible. My problem is that I can't seem to get the CPU heatsink off so that I can put in the new CPU. I scoured the Internet for answers and found nothing. Please help! Does anyone know how to remove the heatsink???? I really appreciate any answer!

I don't know if this is of any help to you, but this is all I could find...
BTW...the processor you got won't work.
You can only run processors with a max FSB of 533 Mhz on the d510.
You need a d530 to run processors with the 800 MHz FSB.
Below is the link to the d510 quickspecs. The list of supported processors can be found on page 5.

You're very welcome.
Did you figure out how to get the heat sink off so you could install the processor?
I had the d510CMT and it must have a different setup, because it was easy to remove the heat sink.
But silly me used too much Arctic Silver thermal paste and a few minutes after the processor heated up, the paste dripped over the side, and into the motherboard socket and POOF!
