I was ftting a chip to my Xbox and while alligning it, it slipped taking the resistor (assuming it's a resistor) next to where you put the chip with it. It's one of them really tiny ones. What can I do to sort this out, I'm a newb at soldering too altho I have someone at work who is good. Can I solder this part back on or is there another way or a bigger thing to solder in in it's place? Please help if you can.

thanks

just bridge the points IF its really a resistor. If its a cap or a transistor your fucked, that is unless you can successfully solder it back on. beerchug.gif

Hi

its a 4nF capacitor. If you havent ripped off the solder pads you should be able to replace it and run the soldering iron over the ends to re-sit it.

Cheers

Chris

PS we stock these in our motherboard component pack !!! (blatent plug i know but hey I make my living doing this now )
