Hi @JamesTheBeltch

1st off, welcome to the forums! :)

The short & SAFE answer I'm gonna say is sadly no. Save up & buy a new mobo. I know it'll suck, but...

The short & possibly unsafe answer is yes. Try a sharp #2 pencil, Fill in the small areas that were scratched. It "may" work or it may not. There is also a silver conductive "paint" pen for this type of repair you could use. Last resort you could try solder. However, you do not want them to cross over one another. (The individual circuits on the PCB. Make sure each line is its OWN line)

Here's a Circuit Repair Pen and here as well.

Thanks for the welcome, long time lurker first time poster. I don't have much to lose, (I'll test it with an old gpu) so thanks for the advice and I'll let you know how it goes.

James,
For a bridge use an exacto knife or box cutter and score between the traces. Be careful not to cut the trace again.
If the trace has been cut then lay a small wire across the trace and solder to fix. Be careful and make sure any masking is removed where you will be soldering.
