A good tech can fix that without replacing the motherboard.

But it will have to be one that you see with a solder iron and does this all the time. Try ikenfixit.com and notefix.com if you don't have local super techs.

Easy fix for some tech

Robert's right usually a savy tech can fix the outlet by soldering some "pigtail" connection to replace the orginal. The pigtail is needed as in most cases the small portion the orginal componets(wires) were attached to are found on a "broken mtrbd.". Direct rewiring and some gel works fine. You may have an ugly duckling of sorts but compared to factory(or laptop center) repair depot a whole lot less in repair costs.
