Do you mean failed through use or is it hanging off the board? If it's just stopped working then you're unlikely to be able to fix it by reusing the socket, then again if it's hanging off the board then there's the chance it's broken traces within the motherboard.
As expensive as replacements are, it's unlikely that you'll be able to fix it with any consumer tools. Contact the manufacturer, you may get lucky and they'll have a few older stock floating around or they might be able to fix it more easily.
