Repairing Bent Laptop CPU Pins
Regardless of whether you're dealing with a laptop or desktop CPU, repairing bent pins is an arduous task. You have to be able to individually realign each bent pin. Here is the best method that I have found for straightening bent laptop CPU pins.
You'll need a magnifying glass, for starters. A hand held one won't work, either. It has to be a hands-free magnifying glass that one might use for reading, or in a workshop. I don't recommend attempting to put the CPU in any kind of vice. The risk of crushing it, or having it suddenly flip vertical while tightening it down is too great.
Holding the CPU in one hand, very carefully, use a credit card to very gently nudge pins back into their correct position. Make no mistake - this is a long process, and can be very frustrating. You may very well over compensate and bend them too far back, or you may find one stubborn pin that just won't respond. If you have a difficult pin that you need bent back, you can use a flat head screwdriver to individually bend it. Just remember, the pins will buckle under even the slightest pressure, so be very careful. Another way that you can correct an individual pin is with a mechanical pencil. The thickness of the pencil lead is about the same as an average CPU pin. The image here (courtesy of Maximumpc.com) shows how this method works.
The credit card method of correcting bent laptop CPU pins works most of the time, but it is difficult and time consuming. If there is any way you can have the CPU replaced then you may want to just send it back. Some prefer dealing with RMA frustration over the clumsy hand repair of bent pins.
