I have an Asus M4A78 Pro motherboard, and the socket connector has been completely broken and taken off. Everything else is fine. Can I fix this or find a work around?

you would need some extremely good soldering skills to repair this and to be honest would probably still not be a good idea. if anything is wrong you could easily fry your CPU or create a short that would damage other components. I would recommend just getting a new board. It not worth the risk.
