Getting this motherboard to work

So I have a motherboard I got off a friend and it's not working. I'm not sure what model it is but it has an LGA 775 socket (I'll attach a photo of it). When I got it, the clear CMOS jumper was bridged and the CMOS battery was upside down. After fixing those, I got fans to spin but it won't post. I've tried both a Core 2 Quad Q6600 and a Pentium E5300 and both give me the same result. I can't find the speaker jumper so I can't hear post codes. I want this board to work because the other one I have for my Q6600 behaves weirdly with dual channel memory. What else can I try?

is it me or do i see a bent pin there?

It's just the angle. I checked, pin looks okay. I'll double check when I get home though

Hm, it might be. Once I'm home I'll look :)

So that pin was not bent, there was debris in the socket (which I did get out). Removing it did not fix it though. One of the other pins might be bent a bit but, I couldn't find any. Thanks though for pointing that out, I might have missed it otherwise. 

 

Anything else I can try?
