2 of the pins had been crushed
the 2 corner ones
i tried bending them back but cause they had been so squashed they snapped

i still have warranty on it

please help with advice to this situation

Soldering won't work. It'll stick to the pin but not the processor itself. Straighten the pin out. Check to see if it's fairly straight by dry fitting it to the processor. Try to put the pin in the socket and rest the processor on top. Push the lever down and pray. It still might make good enough contact to work.
