Dead 8700m GTS Need help fast..

Hi folks..took my 1730 apart to blow out the dust and quiet a noisy vid card fan.  Upon re-assembly, I used a long screw instead of a short when securing the monitor back to the body of the laptop.  That screw pierced a resistor and killed my video card... POOR design Dell + idiot move me= dead 1730.  The short of it is, I need someone who has had their 1730 apart to tell me the value of the resistor R12, which is under the rubber flap below the left lid support screw.  I have tons of these resistors, but have no idea the value.  It is printed on top of the resistor.. please if anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.  If I have the value, I can fix it.  Thank you!!

Did you ever get your value for the dead resistor way back when?
