    I would ask how to replace a ripped out wire track from the board, do you use solder?

    I did the same thing, not sure which # pad it was but you have to follow where the pad leads to, you'll probably need a magnifying glass cause it'll bug your eyes out, but it should probably lead to that black chip on the mother board, its hard as shit to solder the wire on that without bridging another contact but I got mine working so theres still hope for you

    if your gonna solder that really small spot, make sure to use flux it helps bond the points better/easier. you also have to be careful not to bridge two pins. put a small bed of solder on the pin, and tin the wire, then all you have to do is heat and bond them together with the iron. this makes it easier dont you think?

    30 gauge wire is recommended.
