Common issue on this motherboard. Broken solder joints on U8900.

U8900 is the chip responsible for powering the graphics processor.

You may see posts on line to put it in the oven etc. DO NOT PUT IT IN THE OVEN!!! THAT WILL MAKE IT UNFIXABLE!!

This is a fairly easy issue to solve for a microsoldering shop IF they are aware of the issue.

Basically the issue is fixed by adding a good flux around the chip and resoldering it with a microsoldering iron and some leaded solder.

Hi, can you guys help me locate U8900 chip on logic board?


I apologize, This is a 13 inch... I thought It was a 15 when I answered the question. This board doesnt have that issue and not sure what would cause it on your machine
