Title:

Power failure to logic board

Text:

[image|335200|align=left]<br /> <br /> Hi, i recently bought a second hand MacBook Pro a1260 and i used it for only a few hours before it started failing to boot. Black screen fans and disk spinning but nothing else. I took out the logic board and the CPUs were not clean or pasted properly so i cleaned them up and put new thermal paste on and i got several more hours of boot time. Today it died again and I have isolated the problem to a bad connection on the ic chip to the right of the memory (f2116bg20v h8s) it looks like this processor has a weak connection if i lift the rhs of the chip the system boots fine. Is there anyway i can fix this or does this mean a new logic board? Last digits of serial number are z3ja

Device:

MacBook Pro 15" Core 2 Duo Models A1226 and A1260
