I have a 240 pin DDR2 mem module which has one of the small (gold) connector contacts at the bottom missing. Can this be fixed or will I have to buy a new module?.

Many thanks for any help.

You will need to replace the module I would have thought.

àlmost impossible to fix and not worth the effort, get a new one

No chance unless you a micro surgeon, not dear anyway just replace it.

Hopefully not damaged while inserting to the ram socket on the mobo.

You might be able to replace the copper track using conductive paint but then a new stick would probably be cheaper and certainly more likely to work.
