1/2 hold the shutter and wait for it to focus. if it doesnt (usually a red box instead of a green box) back up a bit then try again. even without macro mode, you should be able to get a picture clean enough to see whats written on the CPU.
Keep in mind that when you focus closely, you will be blocking out a lot of light from hitting your subject. So, in addition to using the macro mode, try taking the picture somewhere where there is a lot of light. Windows work well, and provide a nice soft light.
