well im not sure exactly how it happened - i pulled the processor out of the socket to insure it was installed right (since i could never get it to display properly) and i looked at the pins and two were barely hanging on (as soon as i touched them to try to correct them a bit they fell off). Should I take it back out and try to send back the processor to NewEgg?
Also, when you say it's unsafe, what exactly is it capable of doing? A fire or burning out other components?
Thank you again for all of your help with this.
