Laptop MOSFET Repair/Replacement or is This Board Toast?
Hi, I was wondering if this is just a MOSFET issue or if the cpu (and therefore the whole board) is toast. I get a charge light and a blue light when I power it on, but no display. I removed the MOSFET that seemed to be the issue (some shorts disappeared) however I just checked some of the capacitors on the rest of the board and there are several capacitors where neither end is connected to ground (labelled “dead” in picture) and several more that are shorted all around and right behind the cpu. Is this something that is normal and/or fixable or is this now a scrap/parts board?
