Remove component from motherboard and replace it
Feb 11, 2013, 7:10 PM
Where do I start to find a method to remove this (it had two and I have been unsuccessful) SATA port from the circuit board, highlighted in red.
I have seen a method on Youtube with think copper wire now and could try that. As direct soldering iron is difficult.
I'm currently in Germany near Dutch border, does anyone know of someone that can do this successfully?
I can use services in Britain also.
Thank you and I don't think this is the place to ask but I am starting somewhere, are your brains prepared to be picked?
