Hey everyone. New to this site. Like the idea and hope to come and pick your
brains more often. First question. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix the
arm on a socket A. It is on a motherboard that still works I just need to be able to
lock down the processor. Motherboard is ASUS A7V. It is one of those that has the
old plastic arm, not the metal one. http://www.ocworkbench.com/hardware/asus/a7v/a7vp3.htm -- Here is a pic of it.

No. But I forgot to mention that I lost the broken piece of the arm. So I need
an idea on what might work for a new arm.

How much of the little locking handle is left? If there's a stub say, half an inch long, you might be able to epoxy a thin rod of stiff metal or some such thing onto it and get enough length to be able to lock the CPU in the socket.

You could superglue the stub down. You wouldn't be able to get the CPU out again - but you wouldn't have to worry about it coming loose again! :thumbsup:

When I get some time I'll post some pictures of my m/b so you'll have an idea
of what I'm talking about.
