You can get a multimeter almost anywhere that sells tools - mine cost $10 at WalMart. But you can probably get Best Buy to check it for free with their multimeter if you ask.
BestBuy won't be able to solder the interior connection - but if you bought the computer from there they can send it out for repair. If you have one of their service plans this may be covered under it (but you'll have to check) - if not, the repair would be pretty expensive. Generally, the service center will replace the motherboard rather than solder the connection - that runs $300 to $600!!!
If it's not covered under their service plans, I'd suggest a smaller, local repair shop that does work on laptops. I've seen this done once, and the total cost for parts was around $50 - so the repair should run around $100 or so.
