Sorry. Get a new cpu. At least you didn't burn an FX-57.

Yup, but unfortunately it'll cost you $63 + shipping.

Step 1. Take your current processor and toss it in the garbage

Step 2. Buy a new processor such as the following:

Step 3. Take extra care to make sure you put the heatsink on the right
way this time! :

Even if you still had a warranty it is likely that this would not be
covered.

You would still be covered if you just played dumb and said, "my cpu
no worky".

Puhleeease... The poor guy doesn't have to _play_ dumb, because
that's what he really is (evident from both his spelling and his
action). Don't incite him to become a fraudster on top of that.
