|"it appears that 1 of the pins for the cpu is bent"|
Did this happen before or after the "no signal" problem? If it was after, why did you suspect the CPU was the problem? No signal means the graphics card (or onboard graphics) isn't working. Could be a card problem, a motherboard problen, or a power supply problem. Hopefully you don't break the pin off the CPU when you try to straighten it. If you do, there's no fixing it, the CPU will have to be replaced.
And based on the lack of info provided, I question why the clearing CMOS was recommended as the 1st thing you should do?
