  1. Please elaborate.
  2. yeap...hello do you have the info I need?
  3. we're sorry but your advanced technical terminology seems to have everyone here baffled at the moment.

    now exactly what was this "white kind of plastic plate where the CPU goes" doing that caused it to be broken?
  4. Sounds like the CPU socket from an old P4 or Socket A.

    I don't think they are actually sold in shops!
  5. Is there any way you can take a picture of what you're talking about and show us?
  6. If your talking about the Socket that the cpu goes into I don't think you will be able to replace it. You will need a new mother board.
  7. yea that's it...so I'm done right?
  8. Ok here is the picture follow the red line (arrow)
  9. Ths is it....where can I buy it? any body knows?
  10. cheers on your successful upload . . .no offense on the fail pic but i thought it was funny.

    unfortunately that, the CPU SOCKET 939, is a part on the motherboard that when gets broke cannot be replaced.

    and it looks like an old one too even if you could find it.

    sorry maybe in awhile someone might be better help.
  11. You would appear to be an object attached to another object by an incline plane wrapped helically on an axis,
    New mobo time :-(

  14. I still cant find out how people break sockets. Really.
  15. @Fazers, Yup :-)
    @radnor, I thought sockets were like pinky-swears, generally considered unbreakable :-)
