Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, AMD Phenom ii x64
I recently tried to clean all the dust out of my acer aspire m5100 desktop and when i took the fan off the cpu was stuck on i tried to put it back but bent a few pins a broke 1 off.
I bent all pins back and when i try to turn pc on it starts but no display or bios and i cant turn it off with power button i need to pull out power cord. Do you think its cpu???

Also my mobo is Acer F690GVM i did have a phenom ii quad core in it but im after maybe a AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core would that fit my am2 socket?? Also could i overclock a AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core with my mobo not to bothered if not thou but would be nice thou.

Any help would be much appreciated as i get paid tomorrow and need to go out a buy myself a new cpu..

Removing CPU without releasing the lock first can damage the motherboard. If i were u i will start thinking about new board and CPU.

Yes your system support the first generation of A64 x2 but u need to test the board first before buying new CPU.

AND make sure the CPU hold downs still work, they typically need to be released after the heat sink is out of the way.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
