MSI stealth 15m a11uek laptop - Dead Motherboard (15631)
Hello everyone 👋
Im looking to repair a motherboard from the above laptop. This is the first time attempting something like this, so any help at all would be very welcome. It's been unused for over 9 months.
I have removed the motherboard and have seen 2 areas of liquid damage, one a lot worse than the other (as seen in pictures). I have ordered some isopropyl alcohol to clean these areas, probably do the whole board to make sure. I've also ordered some thermal paste 👍
Power wise the charger is working as checked with multimeter.
Apart from the above, Is there anything else I can check to get the motherboard working again.
Thanks in advance for your help!
I have now fully cleaned and checked over the motherboard. On visual check I cant see anything out the ordinary.
I then tested to see if there was power getting to the motherboard - no power at all. If you look at the picture with the DC jack - connection A gives nothing, connection B starts off around 1V and loses power till it falls to 0. Then on the DC jack itself it looks like there is burn spots present, so I'm thinking a new DC jack?
The laptop has a thunderbolt power connection, could I power it purely from that (without fixing DC jack?) Lazy option 😜
Es esta una buena pregunta?
