GOD DAMNIT... I ****ED IT UP.. MY LAPTOP IS DONE...
I have a ****ty *** solder gun and tried soldering the two wires that turned on the laptop and ****ed it all up.
My switch is done with and so is my carputer now. damn it.
look at this hack job.
damn it im hella depressed. My solder gun just spread out the solder everywhere. I was toying with it for the last 4 hours and then my solder just spread over the whole board. i tried to hook it up to the laptop and then the ribbon connecting the two started smoking. Obviously not a good sign.
there was a huge lump of solder on the board so i decided to file it down to give me a clean slate with no over build solder. thats why that part is smooth. I tried looking for a replacement switch board but of course no luck. at this point I don't know what else to do.
