so i made an error plugging in a USB 3.0 cable into my motherboard. i bent one of the pins completely over which folded in half then bent flat against the bottom of the plug. i tried to gently pry it up in an attempt to straighten it out, which i figured was a long shot, but i had to try. it broke off flush with the surface of the board. i have not taken the board out of the machine yet. because if its not possible to repair it, there is no point. i need to know a few things. 1) can a broken pin be removed and a new one soldered in? or when i heat the solder are several of them going to come loose and out of alignment, or worse? can i buy new pins? they look like they are square rather than just round wire. or would i have to find a doner board? i know that i can buy an expansion card that will provide me with a new port. but i do not mind a challenge, as long as the odds are better than 70% failure rate. this is not about saving 20-30 bucks for a new card. its about making the board right. i have fixed things all of my life. and i am pretty good at it. but i know when to ask for help, and this si one of those times.
