Options for fixing or working around a bent pin on a laptop monitor connector?

I was cleaning out my laptop, when the ribbon connecting the screen to the motherboard came loose, When reconnecting it, I bent 2 of the pins on the connector on the motherboard (doh!).

"You shouldn't have to get the pins perfectly straight. If you can get them straight enough there might be enough leeway in the socket to gently force it over the bent pins which will straighten them some more.

As to how to get them more or less straight - use the finest pliers you have or a pair of tweezers."
