My Problem


My Fix

Repair was easy enough, just followed the directions. May want to watch a video or 2 on the X clips, pretty easy to destroy the whole motherboard if you screw this part up.

My Advice

The whole process was pretty easy. To do the reflow, instead of initially heating the board with the heat gun, I put it in the oven at 200 degrees for 10 min to uniformly heat the board before I started; it's not too hot to hurt anything. From there I heated each of the chips with the heat gun on high for about 4 minutes total and then let the motherboard sit for about an hour.
