not sure if any certain pins are non-vital, nore would i try fixing it, i dont like situations that threaten the health of my system, or myself. Id replace it, but maybe others have managed to fix similar problems

Some of the pins don't actually do much but you'll be lucky if it's one of the unneeded ones.Do a search for bent or broken pins.Alot of people say to take it to your local jeweller to be fixed but I can't vouch for the effectiveness.

There are a couple non vital pins on desktop cpu's that are used only in mobile applications, being they all have 453 pins. As to which pins are bent and what they do (or don't do) you'd need to download the tech docs from the home page (link in top right corner) for a Athlon XP model 10, and check against the pin grid array. As for fixing, contact AMD.
