On PGA processors (pin type processors) I have used a mechanical pencil and a rounded toothpick arrangement to straighten pins. With LGA processors where there are pads on the processor, and contacts in the motherboard socket I have never seen anyone be successful in straightening the contacts, most people just scrap the board.

On PGA processors where the pins are on the processor that fits into a ZIF socket straightening a bent pin is much easier, however even with a PGA processor straightening multiple sometimes becomes impossible.

Also, you need to look at the processor under a magnifying light and make sure none of the pads on the processor are damaged. If you are not able to straighten the contacts in the socket so they are PERFECT, I wouldn't put the processor back on that board since if it is now not damaged, it may become damaged from the bent contacts.

hi win2kpro, so u do u think that these bent pins don't make contacts with cpu and that causes pc to randomly reboot every 2 or 3 minutes

I really can't answer that question. All I know is that Intel tells you if you receive a board with damaged socket contacts to reject the board and the same is true is you receive a processor with damaged pads.
