Broke 1 pin off of 8320. WIll it still work?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So a pin fell off on my 8320 (AL-29).

Here's the datasheet: http://wfcache.advantech.com/www/certified-peripherals/documents/96mpaa-2.8g-2mam3t_Datasheet.pdf


the description for the pin says: DRAM Differential Data Strobe

my question is, if I plug this in, will it still work?

I have no idea, but my guess is that you are going to have memory errors.

A picture would be nice.

If it is on the outside, you could solder it back if you are skilled.

Ram strobing sound pretty important.You could try soldering it on if you still have it,if not maybe improvise with some wire.Keep in mind,if it's broke, you can't break it more.

If you still have the pin you can stick the pin into the socket in the hole that it belongs and then stick the cpu in it and it might make contact with the pin. you just might not be able to install another cpu in the future. I have done it before and it has worked however it might not. I would test the cpu with out the pin first and see what happens. It shouldnt damage anything using it with out that pin.

 

But most jewlery stores won't fix it you might try a watch/clock repair shop.

Just buy some solder paste, micro solder iron.

Let the iron get very hot and then solder it fast, so not heat the cpu a long time. Solder paste will melt much faster than spool solder.

You can center the pin using a mechanical pencil with the lead removed.

How old? warranty left? Try contacting AMD. You never know
