/ Is there a workaround?
'Cos I just found my old 3.2GHz P4, with the single pin missing.
How should I fix it?

However, recently clipped my Sky cable, which had tiny little copper wires, which are good quality too. Hmmmm... Methinks I may have found a solution.
I dropped my cpu once lol lucky it landed with the pins up :o)
Worth a shot. If it works, keep the Northwood and sell the Prescott on ebay. Just to warn you though, it's difficult. I've never yet managed it.
