Bent pins are common. I recently purchased a use CPU that wasn't packed securely and arrived with about a dozen bent pins. A little time spent straightening them up and I was good to go.

It definitely sounds like your hard drive is starting to fail. You can download a utility from the manufacturer's site to diagnose the drive. If it's still under warranty, you can send it in for a replacement.

ive had a cpu with at least 20 bent pins, and it ran fine after straighting them.

motherboards dont take advantage of the full 64-bit RAM address space, the CPU might have more pins for it than the motherboard does, you might have lucked out and the pin that was bent was one of them

Hard drives don't need to be registered to qualify for a warranty. They usually have a limited warranty time between 3 and 5 years. The manufacturing date usually printed on the drive label.

lol, that happens quite often that pins break. That's why Intel has the idea to do a land gid, but what amases me is that they didn't put pads instead of the pins on that socket.
