YLOD repair then relapse
Used YLOD kit and ended up with 4 extra 9mm screws. Worked fine then re-YLODed. Used guide again, replaced thermal paste, put back together, somewhat wonky looking, with 4 9mm screws left. Unit goes to instant YLOD when started. What do I do? Can this be fixed?
theunknown, I would suggest you start off by using this guide. Follow it as described, it does have a high rate of success. Most reasons why it may fail is that people are not aggressive enough for the reflow. Just like anything else, this may only be a temporary fix. Only a complete reflow will be more permanent. Hope this helps, good luck.
