  Motherboard doesn't let comp. boot up with CPU...

...if it does boot up, the moniter stays black, not knowing it should be on.

Let me give you my litte story:
Before I moved to an apartment, I was proud of owning an MSI 945PL Neo mobo w/ 1gig of Ram (2x512 mushkins), and the rest are at my sig =). Anyway, before I moved, my computer was running fine on the new stuff. After I moved, set up my computer together, and turned it on, I noticed with the Rightmark CPU Clock Utility that the clocks were half of its usual (1.9ghz from 2.8ghz, OC'd) I also saw that the Frequency was dropped from 20 to 14! Odd, I left it on for awhile playing music just to see how it would still run. At first I thought my apartment had been set at the wrong Voltage, then later on, the comp turned off by itself when I restarted it.

When I decidedcheck out what was wrong with the CPU, I saw the pins on the mobo were crooked and not as good looking as it was when I first got the mobo. I was then wondering, if that's the reason, then, I'm quite screwed! I got a pin and tried to realign the pins to order, I spent awhile trying to realign them and when I THOUGHT I was done, i put everything back together, turned it on, and...it turned off byitself seconds later. I opened my computer again, touched the CPU and it was BURNING HOT! I was then wondering, "Does the crooked pins have something to do with this?" A few days later, after ignoring it for awhile, I tried it again, this time I straightened the pins (meaning pushed them up since when you place the processor in it, it'll get bent down) and put my CPU in. I was half surprised that it was still running longer then usual...but I didn't see my moniter screen at all. I tried resetting CMOS, both ways, no dice. I'm now stuck with my fairly old crappy computer.

Basically I what I need to know and need help is:
Does the crooked pins on the motherboard socket (LGA Socket 775) have anything to do with this CPU malfunction and/or the screen being black? (My gfx card works, I'm sure of it, I even tried using my old PCI card and it didn't work).

Do I have to RMA this mobo and get a replacement, or RMA my CPU and get a replacement, or BOTH!?

How do you mean the cpu was burning hot??? Did you turn your machine on without a HSF?

Also, I'd say the HSF was bumped around during transit, this caused the cpu to overheat, and clock itself down (speed step or whatever its called) to reduce the heat output.


I assume simply re-seating the HSF would have fixed this, but I think maybe you've gone and done some more damage by messing with the pins in the socket

You should have removed the processor and put in back in its box and used the plastic protector that comes with Socket 775 motherboards. I don't believe you can RMA a motherboard that was put into transit without the use of the plastic protector? I could be wrong but that's what I've read.

Well, looks like I'll have to get the mobo at newegg...which seems to be an open box, oh well I have the accessories anyway

You're right, BUT even with the heatsink, I felt it that it was hot...

Now hearing that if i turn on the computer with the messed up pins, will that damage the cpu, even if its an LGA775??

Damn double post...

OMG, u broke the cpu.
booting the pc without a heatsink wasnt a smart move from you,
since cpu's can survive for about 5/10secconds without a heatsink.
u can throw that chip away....

i dont mean to offend u in any way,
but if u dont know what u are doing,
u should some one else do it who does know what he is doing...........
