Ok.. So you bought a Matrix since you don't like to solder but you have a 1.1 but you can't get the LPC bridge to contact?
Many ppl claim that the only solution is to solder the LPC holes but the reason you got a matrix is that you can't/don't want to solder.
In my case i was modding a friends box and didn't want to solder in it but the matrix just wouldn't get contact with the LPC holes.
What i did was to use some conductive silver lacquer available in any electronics store. I then took a toothpick and dipped it in the bottle and then pushed it through each LPC hole used by the matrix. Wait a few minutes and repeat.
If your having problems with the D0 contact, isolate it with some tape and put a blob on that to.
If you happen to get a little too much on a point, it can be removed with some rubbing alcohol...
After this, just mount the Matrix.
If correct, at test mode it should blink green when you hit power and then switch over to red. Put to preferred mode and start to check that bios loads correctly.
With this method the matrix was correctly installed in the very first try.
