Thanks for the info, that is definitly of interest! Sounds like a good viable option to get this fixed.
I work at a place with people who solder for a living, so I will first try to fix myself first (that is why I was asking for the existing part#). I haven't gotten an actual part # for the micro USB port on the motherboard yet, but research tells me there are only a few options. I still plan to try and fix myself, but if it doesn't work, I will definitly try the ebay repair option.
