    this model suffers from loose chipset BGA soldering and sometimes cpu socket solder.

    i just fixed 2 of them by using kester 951 no clean flux and 330 degrees for 3 minutes... wait the board warps so apply heat while watching it in angle so it dont overwarp and push solder against chip = splat balling is now glob of solder.

    this is the result of cheap board makers going thin on PCB
