Question about HP Pavilion tx1000z Notebook
The NVIDIA chip, U20, needs to be resoldered to the motherboard. You will need to take it to a solder technician that has tools for resoldering BGA (Ball Grid Array) parts. It requires a special heat gun and tools for part placement. I would not attempt this yourself. The are contract board shops that can do this for you. Problem is, they will probably charge you half the price of a new $400 motherboard from Quanta Computers (http://www.quantatw.com/Quanta/english/service/serviceinfo.aspx) who makes the motherboard in Taiwan, for HP.
Good Luck. - Coop
