Journeyman III

AMD Phenom 9500 quad core X4 ( maybe 2007-10)

Can any body offer advice to an OAP new to computing  . Given this machine but the CPU came adrift and out of it's mounting . Tried to reinsert but found some of the pins were bent . Recommended to try to straighten them which i achieved ( i believe ) and very carefully reinserted the CPU . The machine runs at least the fans run but the screen doesn't light up , nor any sound so maybe the CPU has finally ceased . Any ideas would be appreciated and where can i obtain such a vintage piece of kit , its a learning process .

If you post the Make & Model of your Motherboard I might be able to find its CPU SUPPORT LIST and show you what processors you can install in the motherboard.

Maybe even do an upgrade if possible.
