Having problems with your Panasonic Toughbook 48 Notebook ?

We brought one of our CF-48s to a computer service place in Phnom Penh in Cambodia where we work. They said that the problem was with the chip on the mother board. They said that they could fix the problem without replacing the chip. What exactly do you think they planned to do and can we do this ourselves?


Answers :

It is possible that a "Chip" on the mainboard has a "cold" solder or broken solder connectios and they will de-solder the chip and re-solder all the connections. Depending on the chip, the number of connections that need to be soldered and the size of the solders would be the determining factors if you would want to take on the job.
