Funny, we actually had a whole stack of HP 4600s that needed the cpus reinstalled in order to function.

When we removed the heatsinks, the cpus came up with them, even though the socket lever was down in the lock position. 

We had to "twist" the CPU off the bottom of the heatsink, reinstall it in the socket, reinstall the heatsink, and the machines were fine.
