|All you had to do was straighten the pin. I won't even ask how you managed to bend it. And of course, when you put the CPU in the socket, you have to match up the tiny triangle on the corner of the CPU with the tiny triangle on the corner of the CPU socket. The CPU socket is called a ZIF socket (zero insertion force) because the CPU should just drop in place. Of course, the lever has to be fully raised. |
Have a look at the following pic...notice the tiny triangle diagonally across of the raised locking lever.
And notice the triangle in the lower left corner of these CPUs:
Why did you take the CPU out in the 1st place? And why are you replacing the board? The one you're getting isn't all that much better than the one you had. And why a board based on an nVidia chipset? AMD chipsets are the way to go. If you wanted onboard video, you should have gotten a board based on the AMD 785G paired up with the SB710 or SB750 w/ACC.
"I took it down to a shop close by and they could'nt figure out the problem as well and why it would'nt take my cpu"
I find that really hard to believe. Did they sell you the new board & CPU?
