heh, brings back memories..... every time i've tried to sodder a capacitator back onto a mobo, it usually doesnt work, and when it does it lasts for about an hour, then it dies off again. I usually in some bizzare way end up burning myself, so it usually isnt worth the trouble for me..
BTW im not an expert at the Sodder ray, im only a novice and im not that good with it :P im sure if I put more time into learning how to become more skillful with one, then it may work for longer than an hour after I repaired something like that.
LOL! this was my 555th Post (
