How to install AMD socket 7 CPU on old Compaq laptop

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

This might be a dumb question but... how do I correctly install an
AMD-6 CPU into the socket (7) on a Compaq Presario 1260 laptop? There
are two little tags on either side of the socket that say "open" and
"lock" and the small sliding device locks into place fine without the
CPU in... but when I put the CPU pins into the socket and push in the
"lock" direction, it won't go all the way and is not very firmly
housed (I have another laptop of the exact same model and the CP
seems locked solid). I think I must be doing something wrong but
notsure what...
Can anyone tell me what I need to do to install it correctly?
Thanks a lot.
