    Hey guys

    So I'm in the process of swapping out a fried logic board (no history of liquid), and I found this on the bottom of the logic board.

    Looks like something shorted or melted here.

    I've just swapped over the logic board from a donor with a messed screen/case and it's working fine in it's new home. But I'm still a little worried...

    Any idea if this was a problem with the case? or has anyone seen this before? Think I can salvage this board if I change that part?

    Thanks,
    Craig

    The case should be fine (unless some of the insulation got heavily damaged), as for the logic board it looks like an capacitor, you could try and replace it, but I would advise you to try it on an dead old computer first.
