Hi I have recently removed the cpu on my laptop sony vaio pcg k415b


because it was running a little hot replaced the cpu with new paste


and then the laptop would not start just the orange battery light and the power light comes on for a milly second


then nothing


so removed the cpu again to find there were 5 bent pins


so I staightened them and the cpu sat in the motherboard perfect


repasted and rebuilt then when to start the laptop and it is still the same


does not power up lights flash for that milly second and then nothing?

Bending pins sets you straight up for a failue. I can instantly think of a bunch of things that could have happened:

-you got some thermal paste where you should not have causing a short-out due to the conductivity (if any)

-you did not bend the pins "back to normal" sufficiently

-you damaged the board or pins 

-you placed the CPU in the incorrect orientation (should line up with an arrow) since pins were bent this is my guess

-you were improperly grounded and damaged the board itself


doing things like that without extreme care and skill can cause damage.


please give me any further info if you want more specific help.
