I believe this connection could be soldered back onto the board, provided you know what your doing. Using a discrete GPU might also be a work-around. Otherwise you pretty much need to replace the board. bkaylor86 January 24, 2012 12:38:35 PM I can't soder it back on. Is there a cheaper solution than replacing the motherboard Related resources broke off a solder on my new 8800GT - Forum So I guess I broke my mobo... - Forum I Think i Broke my PC - Forum [Capacitors] Capacitor Broke off of Gigabyte Z77-DS3h - Forum What does the power button connect to on the laptop motherboard ?

Get a second opinion first however, there might be other options. Adding a discrete GPU also depends on your PSU as to what your computer can accommodate. Spoony January 24, 2012 12:41:13 PM it cant be fixed, nt a chance sorry. i work in electronics and i had this problem once and this is one problem that wrecks the board if it sa dell or hp or something like that it shouldnt be hard to get a replacement, if not just by a bundle for around 200/250$£ Euro which ever and it will be better as a result anyway bkaylor86 January 24, 2012 12:43:57 PM What is a discrete GPU ?. I have a compaq presario AdrianPerry a b V Motherboard January 24, 2012 12:49:27 PM a dedicated GPU is basically a graphics card. You connect them via one of the PCI slots on your motherboard. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphics_processing_unit#D... http://static.trustedreviews.com/94%7c553a0c%7ca066_225... bkaylor86 January 24, 2012 12:52:49 PM Ok, I can use the video card to fix this problem. Do I have to worry about the BIOS, or will it reconize the card. AdrianPerry a b V Motherboard January 24, 2012 1:21:14 PM BIOS should recognise the card. You'll be using a video output from the card so it shouldn't matter that the motherboard has broken. You need to make sure your motherboard has a PCI 2.0 slot though. It's unlikely, but depending how old it is, it could have AGP. Something like this is probably your best option: AMD 5450 http://www.ebuyer.com/199429-sapphire-hd-5450-512mb-ddr... or Nvidia 8400GS http://www.ebuyer.com/179216-gigabyte-8400gs-512mb-gddr... Link is to a UK supplier, but if your in the US check NewEgg or similar websites. Here are the specifications for the card. You need to make sure you have at least a 400w Power Supply too. http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/ati-rad... bkaylor86 January 24, 2012 1:33:41 PM Will this card work? Compaq NVidia TNT2 16MB AGP VGA Video Card 238955-001 AdrianPerry a b V Motherboard January 24, 2012 1:35:23 PM It depends if your motherboard has an AGP or a PCI slot. bkaylor86 January 24, 2012 1:42:20 PM thanks Can't find your answer ?
