As for scraping, they are already sort of "holey", IE it snot the shiny silver holes that now lack continuity, its the small little "O"'s, if that makes any sense. The solder just wont stick to it.!!! Any hints anyone. I would LOVE to fix this shit right now! andnot pay someone else to help me!
thanx shiznit BTW

The difference of when lies with what kind of signal was on that trace. If the trace was for the DDR ram then those traces are impedance matched (which means they all have the same inductance) and phase matched (which means they are EXACTLY the same length). Traces like that can’t be simply replaced. The car defroster stuff (and related silver bearing trace repair paint) may work, but will not carry enough current to replace a power line. With all that said for clarification, go ahead and try the wire, you have nothing to lose.
As to the “small little O’s”, those are called VIAs and you can scrape and solder the backside of the board as well. Just make damn sure you have the right one. It is very easy to get confused when looking at the back side of a board covered with vias and trying to get it right.

as for making solder stick, use flux.

So, take the modchip off the board, and resolder.
