Hi all,

It's been a while since posting in these forums but I remember I always used to come here when I worked at the repair shop and had an issue I couldn't figure out.

I have a liquid damaged Alienware 15 R3. The power supply trips out when plugged into the board. I have the board out of the machine and have cleaned all visible liquid damage. There's a short to ground somewhere on the board but I can't identify where.

I have a DC bench PSU, multimeter, hot air for microsoldering etc.

If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd be so grateful.

Many thanks,

Joe.
