Hi everyone.
Recently i bought used mobo (ASUS P8Z77-M for about 55$). Seller pulled out this mobo from a normal working PC and showed me it is really works. I came home and i build my PC. I never looked at socet for bent or broken pins because i saw it is working. I thought it has no problem at all. When i tried to install Windows computer restarted. After few attepts i finally installed windows. So my computer restarts itself about every1 - 3 (maybe 5) hours. It shows some blue screens. And sometimes it freeze (everything works i mean hardware but i can't move cursor). Yes it has 1 or 3 (light) bent pins and i think 1 broken pin (i cant really zoom with my camera to see it). Are bent or broken socet pins can cause this behaviour ?

Also my rams isn't supported by motherboard. Do i need to buy new mobo or new ram ?

Blue screens:
  1. MEMORY MANAGMENT
  2. IRQL GT ZERO AT SYSTEM SERVICE
  3. IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL
  4. KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE
  5. FAULTY HARDWARE CORRUPTED PAGE

what about rams ?
What RAM is it?
When you say it isn't supported - do you mean it's not on the QVL?

In which case I probably wouldn't worry, not being on the QVL simply means it hasn't been tested on that board, frankly modules get released so often it would be impossible for MB manufacturers to test them all and update accordingly.

Change the broken components first, then retest.

Yes i mean it's not on the QVL .
My ram is: Micron 8JTF51264AZ-1G6E1 4 GB DDR3-1600 DDR3 SDRAM (11-11-11-28 @ 800 MHz) (2)

He can try, I would not advise it.
Just replace it. Far easier and usually more economical.

It's not as simple as unplug and plug in and solder, and you might risk more uncovering or causing more underlying damage.

On a Z77 board.

Bent motherboard pins
Before - No boot


After - boot success



to fix:



If there was an actual broken pin, not a chance.
If you are really certain about this i can order new supported rams from newegg today.
What do you say ?
Did you took that photo with your phone ?
