So it just stopped working now, and you hadn't done anything new to it?

get your hands on some rubbing alcohol and soak the pins in it for a short amount of time. 1-3 minutes should be enough to loosen the compound. then very carefully use a q-tip to clean off the pins. IF after doing so the computer still does not boot i need the exact model number of your mobo to check and see if it supports X2 processors.

I have cleaned a Skt 775 with Isopropyl alcohol (99.7% pure) and a q-tip with no ill effects
No it isn't. It is electrically capacitive.
