Power cable socket lose from logic board. How can I fix it?

I was going through the Hard Drive Replacement manual and despite my careful efforts and using dental pick I managed to pull the power cable socket right off the logic board. Is there a way to fix this without purchasing a new logic board?

Thanks in advance for any and all assistance!

Take it to an old computer repair guy in a static proof bag and get it soldered back on for $15. It can be a Mac or PC guy, just someone that's been in the business a long time.

It's not something that I should attempt myself? I'm pretty good with a soldering iron...


Only you can determine your level of ability.
