So, I purchased an AIO to replace my air cooler. As I'm removing the air cooler, the cpu came with it(a few pins were bent in the process). I then ended up straightening them as best I could, placed it back in the socket, tried to turn it on, and nothing. I remembered I have an old CPU that I know has no bent pins, tried that, still didn't turn on. Now I'm confused. Power is going to the motherboard, the yellow light is on. After a while the fans started spinning for some reason but the PC wasn't on. Can anyone help my figure out what I broke? Haha

Is it an AMD CPU?
The socket CAN be broken. Check if it is sitting there properly.
Change the RAM slots, put the RAM one at a time at one slot and diagnose.

Please list all your system specs like motherboard name, RAM, Processor name, etc.
