Did you check the socket to see if it would take the new proc or are you totally going by what you see? If it doesnt fit, I think you are screwed. Get a new one or complain to intel.

The little lever on the side of the bus that locks the proc in place is open?

He's right. RMA before warranty goes bad and get one that is 478.
