Question about BenQ Joybook 5000 Notebook
Hi everyone! i have a big problem here. My display went erratic a few days ago. I'd sent my laptop to a local approved service centre and they told me it was the graphics IC that is causing the display problem. It's the same in POST. They said it was the corroded IC. Well! I'd never brought it out in the rain. Should I take their word or take caution. They suggested a solution - to change the entire main board as the graphics chip is integrated into the main board. The costs - a whopping S$500. I'd paid the labour diagnostics charge and had taken it back from them. I don't want to pay more useless money anymore! As I knew my laptop is an Intel 855GM-based with a dedicated ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 graphics, I was wondering about doing the soldering repair on the chip myself. Is it possible or safe to warrant against destruction?
