Hi, So I was taking off the heatsink off my gtx 560 TI and a resistor popped off. I still have it. I tried soldering if but I suck at soldering. So I ended up burning some of the pcb or making it oxidase.
So am I sol? Or can I have someone whos good at soldering solder it and be okay. Thanks
Turns out it works fine. I just ran it to install new windows for my new hardware and stuff that came in today (1090T (: and motherboard). Then I gave it to my friend so the people at his school that know how to weld *** can do it.
FYI, that's a capacitor, not a resistor. It's paralleled with C696 as a filter. The card might run without one of them. I'd try it under load to make sure it's stable (use Furmark or something like that). And those parts are not welded on, they're soldered. And unless you perform the repair on an ESD-safe workstation with a grounded soldering iron, you could end up killing the card. It's not a hard repair, it just needs to be done properly and carefully. A reputable local electronics repair shop should be able to do it fairly inexpensively.
