Well she called and they refuse to fix it.The thing was 3 and half weeks out of warranty we found the reciept, but gave her an option to fix it for $149 plus we have to send it first and pay for shipping. She is going to buy another one but not a dell. Just thought I would give an update.

Ya, take it apart and then reassemble it. You might get lucky. Google service manual for the model and it will help you disassemble it

ah well i was going to say you can try a circuit writer pen after scraping the traces if it wasnt to bad. but honestly i would probably only attempt something like what youve got for about 5min before getting pissed and iv done some mods in my day.
