Does the latch work without the CPU in the socket? If so, look at all the pins and make sure none are bent...also check the socket for foreign material. Other than that, I'd say you have a faulty socket. Good luck. :)

Yeah, the latch does move without the CPU in it. When I put it in though (and it does fit) the latch won't come down.

You have to kind of push it down and away from the socket at a certain point to get it over a little tab

Yeah, I was being a wuss. I just used a little force and it went down fine. Sorry for wasting your time.
