After working very very hard, trying anything. checking youtuber (with my phone), i found a solution.
i tried first taking out the Bios battery, first time it seem'ed to not work, and then i've taken out and tried to use the jumper, and i think it didn't work.
and i've seen a video on youtube, on how to retrieve a dead Motherboard back to life (this is what i searched on youtuber) and found a video about a guy how he fixed his CPU pins.
and i decided to try, (anyway my PC is dead, so why not..)
and i've seen one/two pins looking a little weird, one is too low, and other was like a little moved to the side. so i moved both of them with a niddle, and did as careful as possible, and now it seems to work.
but its +/- surviving. or something like that. it won't boot from first try, maybe its temprorarily, and will boot on first try with a time.
I'm very very happy, i'm able to write from my computer now, because i was far from able to afford buying new motherboard or even a new PC because i couldn't find any such mobos for sale.
Yeah, maybe i a little forced the CPU when tried to change it. hope other people with such problem will try it, instead of wasting more one... because some may have this problem with a brand new mobo, and just upgrading the CPU,

The pins in an LGA type socket are very delicate (and very fine) and it is important to align the CPU in the socket properly before clamping it down. There is a small arrow in the corner of the CPU, which corresponds with an arrow on the socket to indicate direction it should be fitted, plus there are notches cut into the CPU to aid alignment.
Good guide here for socket 775 (same basic method applies to any LGA socket) - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-stakes-vision-pc-future-775-launch,830-6.html
Sorry you damaged your motherboard.

It all started because i didn't actually know it should "land" on the pins, i knew i should put it very careful, but i thought it got to adjust to the socket, now i know it, and this won't happen again,
