Can I repair my motherboard?

Block Image

While repairing the broken power jack on my laptop, I managed to snap the corner of the motherboard off and I would like to know if this is salvageable or not. It is roughly a 1x1cm piece that goes above the power jack and Ethernet port because the laptop is worth nothing to sell and currently there’s a lot of financial stress at home an we aren’t in a position to afford even a used £100 laptop and selling for parts will take a long time

The bit circled is where it has snapped from. The actual laptop has been passed onyo someone who will pull out the hard drive and recover the files taken off. I dont think i could see any connections but the piece broken is where i have circled on this picture

There’s not much you can break there without fatally damaging the motherboard. You can lose a small amount of groundplane PCB at most.

We need photos of the actual board to judge if it's repairable or a total loss. Boards aren’t cheap in the US; $50-70 from a quick eBay search. The cost of the board is about as much as a whole laptop.

It depends on if it damaged anything important. Did damage electrical connections, parts on the motherboard? Or was it just a piece of the board that has nothing on it? Can take a picture of the damage with both pieces.

Thev image not coming up. Can you edit the question and put the picture there instead of the comments.
