    Good Afternoon
    Is it possible to get an electronic manual of a motherboard?
    I'm starting on the PC motherboard repair manuals or videos and I need to repair plate, explaining how to measure the various components and determine their faults.

    Generally, there is only one, or maybe two things you can do with a motherboard: repair the caps and replace the FETs (dead FETs though can indicate something else is fried, like the CPU & chipset.) Anything more will require a schematic, and I doubt manufacturers publish them. Also, have you *tried* to rework 0402/0603 components? It's extremely difficult.
