I managed to get an updated BIOS elsewhere, so I don't think I need any files right now, but thanks.If you need specific files, DM me and I'll look through my archives
I have general soldering experience but I don't know if I'm up to the task of repairing the traces. Maybe I should practice on a donor board first...The USB3 Connector is the easiest to fix, the traces will be more difficult but are still doable if you have at least some experience with it.
I did go ahead and repair the USB header, which was pretty easy. I originally intended to only transplant the plastic part from a donor board, but I did also have to transplant 2 pins from the donor board since the far left 2 pins on this were damaged. Those pins are slightly smaller for some reason but it seems to be ok.
I'd really need a donor board to transplant some of the MLCCs from, but I don't have one and I don't think I'm really going to bother, just hope it's stable as is. I might go and solder on the one that's hanging halfway off tho.I don't have a macro of the socket backside at hand, but could take one if you need a reference. Edit, just blown up crop:
I've considered this but after asking around I doubt this will work because of how sensitive a memory bus is. It might work and be unstable or something.Looks like the damage (mostly) avoided the serpentines, this could be an easy fix with a trace pen. It's such a small break in the traces that I wouldn't be too worried about material spec differences
I guess I could try it, but then I don't have a trace pen and would have to spend money on one.
Main hold up on fixing this is I can't really see what in doing all that well. I have food eyesight but it's just so small. Plus I've never done this before so idk where I'd begin.
