HP TX1000 Reballing. Need a lil info!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm on the home stretch of a reball of the NF-G6150-N-A2. I've gotten the chip completely reworked with fresh balls and its ready to go back on the board, but when I did my final inspection of the substrate I noticed there was one pad that has been ripped off. It's right on the very edge of the chip so I'm confident I can do a custom trace to its connecting component, but the traces are obscured by printing on the motherboard. I havnt been able to find any datasheets online to tell me what that pin is connected to either. The only clue i have is that this pin on a desktop motherboard with the same chipset goes to the pci-e slot.

The pin designation is P-1

Finally got a decent quality pic of the issue pad. The red arrow indicates the missing trace:


Thanks in advance OCN!

Find what pin it goes to connect on the PCI-e slot.

on the desktop motherboard?

just to be clear, the reference board i traced is for an HP desktop, not a laptop.

it connects to either pin B37 or B38 on PCI-e 16x which is designated as HSOp(5) and HSOn(5) respectively. Transmitter Lane 5, differential pair

I just did a little google walk. would a conductive silver pen work better than the pencil or are you recommending that for a different reason?

Yes, most definitively.
