    I had a similar issue with a cheap computer's wire getting pulled out of the bracket. there was no way to open the bracket to repair the wire so I just bought another.

    if your wire is intact then maybe you can remount the bracket with zip ties or electrical tape ...?

    Zip ties and super glue make for powerful options for the enterprising DIY-er.

    I super glued some leather strips to the piece that goes onto the back of the computer and I tied it around the bar. Now all I got to do is super glue the string to the bars so it doesnt slide around.
