Hi, I ordered a new BIOS chip and I need help removing the old one. Is there an easy way to remove it from its socket? It looks like this. A video would be helpful.

I got the chip out. The new one won't align perfectly with the socket; the pins are a tiny bit too wide. Am I supposed to squeeze it?

Computer booted up and works! Thank you! I have another question; my dad accidentally threw out my CMOS battery. What happens without it?
