Does this look burnt to you?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm working on this computer and the thing randomly freezes and black screens.... I lifted the MBO and found this next to the cpu socket. Is this burn?

doesn't look burnt, those are just solder points though. what's it look like on the other size of the board?


Judge the product by it's own merits, not by the Company that created it.

aomw of those contact points or solder points do look a tad burned.

Look like a short within the layers of the pcb to me. On the lower bloched spot, top lead looks like the solder had melted and balled up.

some of it looks like burnt flux, some might be burnt pad/pcb, particularly the top one.

 

could tell better with a clearer image, solder joints look pretty cold as well.

It can't be the computer sits in the same room as my laptop and my laptop sits in my office, so I would know

It's a very old motherboard and the PC was low spec to begin with. This would not be the first time something burn on it. This once had a GPU....

Looks normal to me.

This is just the soldering point and is probably just flux.
