    Default Anyone here with BGA rework stations fix laptop mobos?

    Anyone here repair laptop mobos? I have one that needs doing and would rather my money go to a DFer than a randomer, also would be handy for potential future business. Does the chip last indefinitely once the solder is replaced i.e. does the job fix the flaw that causes no video and the laptop will then last like any other? Don't want to spend the money to find later on down the line it fails again for the same reason

    I do satan. once the reball is done it very rarely comes back (As long as its done correctly)

    Ordered some new kit as my old stencils are battered at the mo (From china but dont know when it will arrive)

    Has a fix been attempted before? What Make/model is it?

    Thanks to AD
