    I am going through the Lab Manual for Mike Meyers A+ Certification and I am having trouble.
    Right now I am reading CPU installation.
    While trying to remove a fan and Cpu I got stuck and decided to
    post a message. I dont have any idea how to remove this particular fan from the Cpu. Since it is a Pentium III I dont want to break the CPU or fan.Could someone help.

    Here is a picture of the CPU and fan.

    the clips on the side... that attach to the socket.. get a flat nose screw driver and push the fan down then using the screw driver unhook it from the notch...

    Just make sure when you put it back together you use some thermal compound mate.

    Occasionally, someone will use too much compound. The stuff is like glue and if you overdo it, you'll never get the CPU off again without breaking it. :wink:

    Hey there was a big blue lever i had to press down on which released the fan from the CPU. I have a picuture of it. But I have another question what is this big slot with a thin card in it of some sort on my motherboard the slot resembles a slot 1 slot.

    Do you have any idea?

    Thanks again for your help.

    I'd be willing to bet it's cache memory "on a stick" for the CPU. Try this. According to the diagram, it's called a "coast socket".

    Wow ! The Mike Meyer book doesnt even talk about that, and I dont want to go way off. Yeah its interesting but I am haviing enough trouble right now grasping the basics. Is there anything else I should know about it. I thought Cache was either on the CPU
    L! or on Motherboard L2. Anyway thanks again.

    That doesn't look right for a COAST. COAST slots were much smaller - this is very tall, and I don't think the board shown in it belongs there.

    I think this board looks like a combo Slot1/Socket370

    I think you are bang on right Harry!

    This is a Slot 1 type processor...
