I need a repair on my motherboard, specifically I need to have the socket CN4 replacing (I think the Mb number is DAOU81MB6C0 REV C , that's the only number actually printed on it. The particular socket holds the ribbon cable from the laptop on/off button - I would assume that it would be the same whatever processor is on the board, though this is an i3 Mb. It may not be available to users as it is the sort of thing that's not needed too often and needs pretty good soldering skill to fit it that most users don't have. However, I can't find one and I can't find anyone who actually repairs Mbs - none of the laptop repairers I can find get down and dirty with them, they just swap out the Mb when the y find it broken (I can't find a Mb available anywhere either). 1. Can anyone recommend a Mb repairer who can help me? .2 Can anyone supply me with the replacement for the broken socket so that I can solder it in myself (My soldering is OK, it may not be quite good enough, but if there's no one else.....3. Lastly, does anyone know where I can get a replacement Mb?
Yes when a zif connector on the motherboard is broken the only fix is to replace the board. Theoretically one could resolder the connection but in practice almost nobody has those skills unless you are in the Far East and have access to one of their giant tech bazaars.

For parts. If you could find someone with soldering skills you can scavenge parts:
