Knowledge is magic. My friend Alex Noble fixed his laptop that had a dead motherboard by baking it in an oven, 180 degrees, for 7 minutes. This process works because you are emulating the process that the components undergo at factories. All the parts are places on by mechanical arms, at the speed of a mini gun, then the entire board is baked in an oven for a couple of minutes to solder all the parts to the board.

    Haha, yeah my buddy didn’t say anything about the potential fumes.

    Yeah about that, should the oven be preheated for that?
