Network card pushed too far

I am unable to use my Network card (Belkin) after returning from abroad - it seems it may have been knocked too far into the side of my laptop as it never went right in before. Does anyone know if this is possible or how to remedy it?

I think the PCMCIA card socket is directly fixed (and soldered) onto the mainboard. If it has been dislodged then I'm afraid you may be looking at a major repair (new mainboard). I guess there is someone out there on the forum who fixes laptops and who can advise you for certain.
