    Hey I had a laptop that I opened up and took the power ribbon connected to the motherboard out, only problem is when I did that the brown connecter that secures the ribbon broke on one side. Now I have tried plenty of times to secure it with just the one intact side but it never works, the laptop will switch on but after a few mins the screen goes funny. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement for the brown ribbon connecters online???? Thanks in advance
