First, either get a grounding cable, or put your hand on the computer's power supply. Then unplug the power supply, and don't move your hand off untill your done, unless you have to. Just putting your hand back on the power supply may not work.

After you "ground" yourself, press the power button, while the power is unplugged. That will drain the last of the power stored.

To remove the chip (processor) and cooler, from the socket. You have to remove the Fan, and release the piece of metal holding the cooler, on the processor. Then you have to locate the latch bar on the side of the socket, and swing it up.

Then just gently lift the processor out of the socket.

If you have to pull hard, then you have not released the processor. It will not get stuck.

You may want to disconnect any power cables, to prevent it from getting caught on any of them. The Fan also has a power cable that may make it difficult to remove, if still connected.

You do not remove the socket, but you do remove the Fan, the Cooler, and the Processor Chip.

Then Make sure the replacement processor has only a little of the heat sink grease. Just enough to cover the entire surface of the processor. Too much, and it will cause the processor to overheat.

Then it is a simple matter of putting the Pentium 4 processor in the socket. Be even more gentle. NO Force is required, it should just drop it.

Then be don't be too rough when snapping the piece of metal back on the Cooler, and socket. Some recommend wiggling it a little after it is strapped down. Just to make sure the cooler is not resting on the edge of the processor. If you do "wiggle" it, be VERY carefull.

Then mount the fan, AND MAKE SURE IT IS PLUGGED UP.

Unless you are planning on doing any overclocking, any retail processer will come with its own heatsink, which will already have a thermal pad applied to it. In this case, you will not need to add any thermal grease. If you are buying an OEM CPU and using your old heatsink, ignore what I just said and do what Monster_user said. Just make sure your old heatsink is compatable with your new processor.

May I ask why you are switching from a 2.6GHz Pentium 4 to a 2.4GHz Pentium 4?

Not much difference in performance, between a 2.4ghz P4, and a 2.6ghz Celeron. Its a flip of the coin, as to which has better performance.

@ Pyroshane, thanks. The last Computer I put together, I used an OEM processor.

Well, now that you said it's Celeron, that makes sense. Personally, a Pentium 4 is not worth getting unless you get 2.66GHz, which is the lowest speed that supports HyperThreading technology. An 'upgrade' of 200Mhz will not make too much of a difference, so in my opinion you should use that extra money that you were planning to buy a 2.4GHz Pentium 4 with and save for a processor such as this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819116175 3.0GHz for about $186. It's a pretty good deal.

nope, you can get Hyper Threading 2.4C Northwoods.
