Somewhere in another thread I gave the specifications for the socket.

Apart from a replacement socket you need a precision (preferably temperature controlled) soldering iron and a 'solder sucker' tool with a teflon tip - that way you can use it beside the soldering iron tip (the solder wick is not the best 'tool' to use in your situation as it is very easy to bridge tracks on the board with it.

Another bit of advice I can give is to get the tools and practice on an old broken circuit board - that is one of the tests I give to anyone wanting to work for us doing repairs to computer equipment.

If you can't find the specs for the socket let me know and I'll dig them out again.
