Both of these components are located near the pinout header for modchips. I think the iron used was too hot and loosened the chip itself, but i have no way of knowing. I removed the IC the rest of the way with a tweezers because it was obvious that 2 to 3 of the 8 connectors were no longer mounted to the board (the component 'slid' off the contacts).
I am unsure if the component itself is damaged - the xbox has not been powered on. The foil contacts on the MB itself are in perfect condition; it's the SMD component I'd like to identify (and replace) if I can...
Anyone know what this chip is or the manufacturer so I can find a replacement?
Any help greatly appreciated.
PS - if you want to see a pic of the component I'm describing, goto http://www.teamxecut...als/x3pin16.htm and look at the "before" and "after" pics of the pinheader install. You'll see the component in the lower right corner of those pictures.
