Holes On The Motherboard Are Filled In?
Posted 13 January 2005 - 01:22 AM
Here is an image to show you what holes I mean: http://www.spiderchi...-v11-xbox16.jpg
Thats a little different than my chip but holes A and D are the same and on mine and they are both filled(you can see an 'indent' where the hole is but its not open)
What the heck can I do about this?

mrright01: I'm following the guide on SpiderChip.com - You screw the chip onto the mobo covering the LPC and just rest the wires inside the various little holes(forget what there called) however these holes are of course suppose to be open so that you can slip the wire into them.

or you could use a very tiny drill bit and reoate between your index finger and thumb. you realy cant screw this up if you do it by hand. it dosnt take to long to get throgh the solder sence its quite soft.

You can still see were the holes are but instead of being open they are just little indentations in the green covering. The holes are so small though I doubt a needle could even fit through them so i'm kind of at a loss as to what to do. They arn't soldered shut or anything so they cant be desoldered either.
If I absolutely have to I could probably solder the wires in place but on the board but i'd like to avoid it if possible.

Anyways, it all seems to be working now!
