Broken LVDS connector on HP Envy 15

Question

When I took the PC apart I broke the LVDS connector part on the Logic board.  What do I do now?  Is this something I could get fixed it a PC repair shop for a reasonable price?  Should I try and repair it myself?  I have a soldering kit but no experience soldering.  

 

My laptop works when connected to an external display but the actual laptop screen will not work anymore.  Am I best off just forgetting about it and only using this pc when plugged into an external monitor?  I just upgraded to a SSD and the PC works great, I would love to keep using it for a couple more years at least.

Hey Juice, yeah, I think using it as a desktop PC is your best bet going forward unless you replace the board. I am not sure this is something that can be fixed for cheaper than it would be to replace the motherboard, anyway. You're right, it will work perfectly connected to an external monitor, so enjoy the SSD. I have a laptop at home I probably haven't undocked for two years :cool:
