Graphics card resistor issue

Text:

So, I removed the resistor from the logic board so I could use the mac, but when I reseted the smc and nvram I got no screen. And I lost the resistor but when I touch with my screwdriver the screen turns on. Now comes the part where I need your help, I screw up the resistor pad (its brown), how can I fix it, and if I can, where can I buy it ?
