two days ago me and my roomate bought a p4 2.53, while installing it he had it rotated 180 degreez to the right and ended up breaking two of the pins, is there any way i can make the processor work now?
If they are bent all you need to do is get a credit card and wiggle it in between them to straighten the pins back out. Go slow and be real carefull. But...if they are snapped off...you're up a creek without a paddle. Unless you could take it to a jewler and have him solder them back.
I think you mean "bent". Or at least I hope so. When I was installing mine I bent 4 of the pins but straightened them back with a credit card. If they are broke you must have been trying to installing the thing the wrong way then used a hammer.
no it was just turned 180 degrees to the right so i put 2 pins into the plastic, and when it snapped down it pused em in, then when i took the chip off the pins stayed in the plastic and broke off the processor
I broke a pin off my p3 1ghz. I transported in and a couple of pin's bent so I tried to straighten them and one snapped! Not working anymore. So I convinced my wife I needed a new PC yay! But to do that to a P4 2.53 NOOOO!
