Question about Gateway Media Center 610X PC Desktop
I have a few rows of cpu pins that are bent.. I use a credit card to straighten them out.. now i cant tell which ones are bent before... however, the cpu chip still don't really fix holes...
Never use a credit card as the magnitic strip may damage the cpu.
These cpu's are fare too easy to damage. You would be better off replacing the cpu and not removing it if you are un-aware of the outcome.
Cpu's can be picked up almost anywhere, cheap.

Line them up in the light. Pins should be evenly spaced in BOTH directions. Look at the pins at eye level and try to line them up straight very carefully, using tweezers gently nudging individual pins. Those pins are VERY fragile and if you bend them too much they'll break. Try to very gently slightly wiggle the CPU into the motherboard without pushing down. Make sure it is lined up with the orientation marker before trying this. Good luck!
