Reflow soldering is a process in which a solder paste (a sticky mixture of powdered solder and flux) is used to temporarily attach one or several electrical components to their contact pads, after which the entire assembly is subjected to controlled heat, which melts the solder, permanently connecting the joint.

I watched a tech friend do this kind of reflow repair on a laptop that I owned… sorry dudes… I am not that brave… and a side note… do this at your own risk… this is for educational purposes only… I take no responsibility for any damages caused by this repair… now that thats out of the way… for this repair you need aluminum foil, heat sinks and a heat gun

Later, after showing this thread to a friend…. after he picked himself up off the floor from laughing… he showed me a link to a guy that was doing reflow in his oven… he said… it sound counter intuitive but bake your motherboard… before doing the oven tutorial read the about statement… and make sure all the components are sitting on top of the board meaning the board is facing up… if not they will fall out… and as always… this is meant for educational purposes… proceed at your own risk… I take no responsibility for any damages caused by following this tutorial…
