    Hi Shane. I have a Stepnote XT5000T with the same issue you described. I was wondering if this was a common issue with these laptops? I am going to try your procedure to repair the laptop. I will let you know how it turns out. Another question was there any other steps that you did not show in your procedure? Thanks for your post.

    hey shane, you say you need solder but i dont see you using it during the demonstration, could you give me a heads up please?

    • The purpose of using a piece of solder next to the area you’re working with is so you have an idea of when the solder on the GPU has been reflowed. There are annotations on the video identifying this, but I’ll toss them up in the description as well.
