I was cleaning out my laptop, when the ribbon connecting the screen to the motherboard came loose, When reconnecting it, I bent 2 of the pins on the connector on the motherboard (doh!).
Everything still works fine except obviously the screen (I'm using an external monitor).
What options have I? Seems to me, I can either try to bend the pin back straight (risking snapping it off entirely, and I don't know how I'd GET it perfectly straight), or replace the motherboard (bah!).
Do I have any other options than replacing my motherboard?
I don't think I do, but I wanted to ask to be safe before I go trying to bend pins back. Any tips on how to straighten them?
Presumably I can't claim on my warranty after this.
I'm not sure what the connector type is actually called, the best picture I can find is this:
This is a Samsung r560 laptop.
Edit: Two of them have entirely snapped off now, with 3 other bent ones.
