    Yeah, it looks like you pulled the traces up on two of the pins. It's likely repairable, but would be enough work that a technician that is skilled enough to do the work is going to charge as much or more than a replacement board. If we knew the pinout you could wire a switch in between two vias that connected to the pad and that would let you run, albeit without the power LED shining. If I were to guess, I'd be comfortable guessing the blue and green wires were the power switch and the back and red wires were the power LED (Black ground, red 5V). The switch is just a switch so it shouldn't matter which is which.

    Can't hurt anything to try at this point. Jack E/NJ

    Update #2 and the hopefully final update. After a lot of tries, it was the 2 right pins, the blue ones. Connected them and changed the BIOS settings to automatically boot when powered.
