I've been having a weird issue with my computer recently, where it completely freezes up with a loud buzzing sound as if something broke. I have to hold the power button to turn it off. After the freeze, my computer won't turn back on. The lights and fans all turn on for about 2 seconds and then it turns back off again, And it keeps trying until I switch off the power supply. The only way I can get the computer to boot again is by resocketing the CPU (completely taking it out and putting it back in). Then the computer will boot completely normally, except it tells me it's detected a new CPU is installed even though it's the same one (not sure if that's normal or not).

After it reboots correctly the computer works completely fine for a day or so and then it eventually freezes again seemingly randomly. A few days ago however I noticed a few bent pins in my motherboards CPU socket, which I promptly bent back to the best of my ability. But today the freeze happened again, so that doesn't seem to be the issue. I'm stumped and don't know what to do about it. Right now it's in its weird phase where it won't boot until I resocket the CPU. Does anyone have any ideas?

Some specs are:
Windows 10
Gtx 970
Asus Motherboard
750w EVGA power supply
2x8gb RAM

It's frozen on tons of different programs, the most recent one was right after startup from fixing the last freeze. The one before that was while playing overwatch.
