    Usually. The web tells ya to break out a solder iron and use a drop of hot solder to jumper the socket I circled in red.
    Or cram some tinfoil into the socket.

    Having done this before on my Acer C710. I used tin foil. But it was hit or miss a few times while in crosh terminal. Also easy to bend the pins and wreck it. I have one acer c710 in such a condition. Bought off ebay. Previous owner snafued the jumper pins.

    So. My google search skills are not up to finding the jumper that fits in that

      recessed

    socket . Lots of finds for arduino boards and beagle boards. Which are for open access pins with no socket.

    If you click on the image twice. You will get 1900 resolution. I circled in red what I need to jumper. I am hoping we have some member more skilled than I when it comes to either searching or identifying the mm size they go by for that socket. Kinda a Poke and hope thread.

    Happy Trails, Rok.

    The image is not displaying for me at the linked ibb.co page.
    A websearch for images of “Acer C710 motherboard” led to this
    https://guide-images.cdn.ifixit.com/igi/NGSMWPOwQkGD2yQL.huge
    but, even if this matches your board… I can’t discern the lettering on the motherboard adjacent to that “socket”.
    From that number, a followup web search for a schematic of the motherboard may lead to discovery of the specs/measurements for the item of interest.

    Thanks Skidoo. Since pic host is being troublesome.

    Here is picture showing a jumper plug being used but the thread I borrowed it from made no mention of it.

    Here is mine again on another picture host site

    Edit. On my board pic. If you click on the picture. It blows up to full size.
