I need to know what a part is called on a laptop mother board? Answered

I recently removed my motherboard from my laptop to repair my DC Jack.  That operation was successful. However I created another problem. I broke the little white plastic reciever piece that accepts the wire connector from my heat fan/sink. Its a four wire connector.  I desoldered the piece from the motherboard. I am just not sure what this piece is called. I want to order a new one and solder it on.

Are you talking about a ribbon connector latch, socket, connector?  They have several names.

Looks like it might be a JST connector to me - BIG Japanese connector maker, or possibly Hirose

You may have to get something close that will work or change both pieces.
