an attempt that helps pick up damaged components at work:

inject a limited current at the appropriate voltage on the power leads & use a IR thermometer to pick out the weak ICs. (if the board is already toast then the risk is minimal, just take normal precautions for electronics lab safety and get ready to turn off power supply.)

won't always work, but i've salvaged a few $1400.00 bds that way....
