although i fixed it but when i turned ont e pc , it took forever to turn on on
and also my pc is now super laggy, all the games also lags
i dont know what is the problem
P.S- Sorry for bad english
There are several ground pins, so I don't believe the damaged pin has anything to do with you problems.
I would run a SMART diagnostic and a surface scan of your drive. Look for reallocated, pending, or uncorrectable sectors. The scan may also show "slow" sectors, ie those that require several retries before they can be read.
