Hi All,

I replaced the VGA card on a Toshiba Satelite P305, and I mistakenly bent 7 pins when reconnecting the VGA cable:D oh:. What is the best way to try to get these back straight again? This connector is VERY small. I thought about cutting a old credit card to see if that would help straighten them out. My main concern is the first one which looks like its bent near the bottom. Are there any tools I could get that could help with issue?




Thanks.

get four sewing needles place them side by side on a piece of masking tape with the middle two slid downward to make the two outside needles longer rollthe tape around the bottom of the needles making sure they remain flat you will then have what looks like a two pronged fork...then manipulate as nessassary
