The bent pins

January 19, 2013

A few days a go my colleague and I were working on a computer which was having some odd problems. During the trouble shooting, I noticed something with the CPU socket.

Intel-Socket-1155

At a glance, there’s nothing wrong with the CPU socket, but upon a much closer inspection you can see where the problem is.

Two pins were bent out of shape. It might be causing the computer to randomly crash.
