I accidently scraped my motherboard and bent the “solid capacitor” next to it the pin with the cap on top of it

Go to solution Solved by Needfuldoer,

We'd need a tighter, more in-focus shot of this area to diagnose anything over the Internet:

Check those traces very carefully to see if they're broken or shorted together. If you're lucky, you just took the solder mask (paint) off and can cover it back up with some kind of lacquer or enamel. (You can buy little bottles of solder resist, but drugstore nail polish is basically the same thing.)

i accidentally scraped my motherboard while trying to remove a stuck screw and bent one if the black capped pins next to it on accident and need to know if my motherboard will be ok please i need help!!

Hard to tell from these pics. The tracks near the screw look ok. You've taken off some coating on them but if they're intact it is likely ok. The cap looks normal from the pics. Worst case it is replaceable if you can find someone with decent soldering kit.

I can't even see what's supposed to be bent. Just power it on and see if it works.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

That is one seriously mangled screw.
You drilled it or something?

Can't see the bent.
I do see some exposed copper though.

@kashesJust to add, these solder masks usually need to be hardened with UV-lamps. I can't imagine you'd want to use nail polish because it might contain solvents that will damage your board. I'm not sure, but that's my hypothesis.
