Onboard IGA destroyed

Well now I think I have finally seen it all. Through a reference of another customer I gat a call today to come look at a computer that was giving the owner some problems. By the time I had arrived the daughter had pulled out the unit from umder the computer desk to take a look. She did this without care for all of the connected cables. Well the shortest cable lost which was the monitor cable. The cable was made much better that the VGA connector on the motherboard and the motherboard lost as you can see from the pics...

Fortunatly the board is made from FIC and I was able to find one cheap to replace it. Emachine wanted over 150 bucks.

An attack of the grabby people. Glad that you could fix it! Perhaps this customer deserves a $50 penalty, if eMachine's replacement m'board cost $150...

This is exactly what I was thinking....

It also appears that they tried to shove the plug back on. The sockets were mangled......

O such a person is asking to be taken to the cleaners. Comes down to ethics I guess;I mean i consider myself to be fair in redressing such issues regardles whether they are close friends or not, ~Ive never overcharged, no really, but seriously, these people need to learn about patience and taking care/time for things.

That looks like a standard right-angle through-hole mount VGA connector. You should be able to order a replacement from Digi-Key. 20 minutes with a soldering iron and that board will be good as new.....
