Me my friend tried to applie thermal to the cpu, my friend removed cpu from motherboard and then after a wipes fell on motherboard it pulled some pins and pc showed no display, I tried fix most pins and one broke or stuck down the motherboard hole, after that tried connect everything then I think I connected a wire wrong and I semlled something burning so I quiy turn off pc then reinstalled everything and eveything turn on but still no display, does this mean I need new motherboard or there is hope of fixing it.

Need new motherboard . Possibly need new cpu. Need to decide whether replacing the old stuff with compatible hardware or upgrading to a newer platform is more cost effective.

Definitely need professional help (or at least help from someone who is more expert than you or your friend) to rebuild the pc, or it will get far more expensive than it already is.

I am short on money so If cpu still good I prefer buy a new motherboard and save my self. I have no money now so my sister said she lend me 200$ to buy one. I need a 6 month at least to think of upgrading something and pay my sister money back

Still need some help with the rebuild, someone with a steady hand who has built pc's before and knows about thermal paste.
