Having problems with your Gateway DX310X PC Desktop ?

Broken Motherboard Pins

\015 I was replacing the data cable of the floppy A drive and I broke 2 pins on the motherboard. Can these pins be replaced? Do I need a new motherboard?\015

Answers :

Can you try to just use floppy driver B socket or is their not one? Do you really need a floppy driver many computers now days do not have one using the CD/DVD burner for saving data. I have never heard of the pins being replaced, but nothing is impossible to fix.
