I suppose you broke off the peg on the socket?
Which Socket are you using?
If it's Socket 370 or Socket A:
There's six of the pegs on the socket. Many coolers only use two of them. So, if you broke of one of the center pegs, I suggest that you buy a cooler that uses all of the six pegs; so it won't matter if one is missing.
Don't bother trying to glue the peg to the socket again. Even if you manage to do so, it will fall off again. These pegs must take a lot of power, due to the high pressure of the heatsink clip.
