    An extra lamp sometimes helps. Plus I did not find the pics in your latest post that bad.

    Took apart a friend's laptop from Samsung. It was dead(would not POST). The service center said the motherboard needed replacement. Finally, this is the result.

    Discovered the power button was faulty as well. Needed to be pressed hard. So I poured some IPA inside it and pressed it continuously until the dirt came out.

    Success. :D

    I did this work roughly 8-9 months back. Even today, the laptop runs fine. :)

    Yupp. :)
    Yeah it actually works in most cases. Those oily dirt are easily dissolved in IPA and comes out. In the worst case, the inside of the button is coated with some oxide for which replacement of the button is the only option. You can take apart the button but in most cases, it is even more messed up.

    Yeah. Actually the service center guys are too lazy to do that and if they do it, they do it so bad that after a few months again, it has to come to the service center again which will be the laptop's favorite place before it finally goes to the dump.
