I killed my Multia.
I used a Dremel to remove the failed chip, and that almost worked.
A couple of lands came up, and a couple of legs didn't come off. The
soldering iron removed the leg fragments, but it also revealed that
the grinder had also taken out several traces.
I attempted to install the chip, but my soldering skills were
suboptimal. I won't even insult the machine with an attempt to boot.
I'm just going to throw it away and unsub from the list.
Thanks for the tips.
