Hi;
I was hoping you could give me a bit of advice. I was replacing the fan in my daughters Toshiba A65 S126 Satellite laptop. When attempting to disconnect the male pin from the female pin that is connected to the circuit board, the female pin broke off the circuit board. I tried soldering the fan directly to that point on the board but there isn't enough contact material remaining on the board to do so. Is there some place on the board that I can directly wire the fan into (basically hijack 5 volts)? I don't care if it runs at high speed whenever the laptop is on. Any ideas as to how to jerry rig this fan would be very much appreciated.

Thanks Joe
