What's this mobo component I just broke ?? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Its incredibly easy to accidentally rip a soldered component from its pad / trace. Not a QC problem at all. Just hit the broken end with a soldering iron for 2 secs, and see if its holding. Test the board. I did this to a GPU YEARS ago... 10 mins of time to touch the surface mount cap back on, no issues ever again.

Yea, this might be a simple fix like that.

If you try to resolder it or remove it completely - be careful not to rip the solder pad(s) off, this will make the repair much harder, this can happen mechanically when you rip the component or if you apply excessive heat when trying to resolder. Also do not lose the component if you intend to fix it. Soldering it might not be that easy without proper equipment. I am not sure if this can be fixed under RMA (my guess is that it is not really covered by warranty as this is mechanical damage). If you are afraid to solder it yourself you could ask MSI for paid repair, ASUS has (at least in my country) paid repair service (they fixed one mobo for me for OK price - few SMDs were missing there), maybe MSI could do something similar? Easier option would be to find decent electronics repair shop in your area, the repair (assuming you did not lose the component and that soldering pads are still in place) is trivial and any person who deals with electronic repairs should be able to fix it for you.
