which can be carried out at home, and removing a motherboard is not a wise move.

What was the problem that prompted you to try making a repair in the first place?

i went to use the laptop and after pressing the on button nothing happned so i checked the power supply and the voltage was correct and the battery charge light was not on so i took out the motherboard to check for damage there was none so i pluged it in and the chips near to the power connection seemed to get very hot.

Thanks In Advance
