I am the proud owner of a P4 2.53 processor with bent pins (don't ask). Is there a reputable site who could repair it without ripping me off? Or is there a tool that is out there that could fix the processor and does not require a great learning curve. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Take your time and use a long thin piece of metal that fits beteen the rows of pins and straighten a row at a time. A good piece of metal to use is a blank that you remove when you install a new PCI card.

Gently rock it back and fourth and you should be able to fix all the bent pins.

You are limited to what your mind can perceive.

I'll fix them all for you for $10 labor. It's typically 5-10 minutes work. 10-15 minutes for a really bad one.

ya 10 -15 minutes for like a whole row of bent pins. I was surprised and my friend was freakin out. He almost hyperventilated! But i bent the pins back using some scrap peice of metal i found and after a couple tries to pop it in it fit in and turned it on and worked fine.

Life is irrelivent and irrational.
