  1. It won't run. RMA it.
  2. ur not answering my question.......Will it damage my cpu that is the question.....
  3. If it's a grounding pin, it should work. If it's a pin that regulates voltage or something else important then you could fry your CPU or MB. The only way to know for sure is to find a diagram of the pin layout and see exactly what that specific one does and then get lucky

    But Baby is right.. RMA it.
