    Hello
    I have a bent pint on my motherboard ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero
    Can the cause a Q-code 00 ?
    No boot, neither Bios or Windows. Fans work, pump work, ram memory lights up.

    Is there a good solution to repair a bent pin. If it is a bent pin

    I would not recommend that video, tweezers are big. I would use a small thin needle and carefully push it back into position. Either way, you'll risk the pin breaking.

    yeah use needle nose tweezers

    that 1 pin doesnt look like it would be touching the pad on the cpu

    just push it softly back to the right position and hopefully should be ok

    its unlucky that that pin is for a vital part of the cpu and mobo start up

    I've seen that before with new MB's. Should be easy to fix. Just be careful.

    Come again Passus? Is there a mapping for various areas of the CPU socket and functions?
    OR CPU socket layout?

    All you need to do is line up the pin(s) that were facing a different way to the correct way.

    I bent a pin once and used a needle and a magnifying glass to correct its position, lucky it worked.
