My laptop motherboard fault, laptop is out of warranty, but very light
used. There is a lot repair services that offer motherboard repair. It will
probably require to replace North Bridge chip. Is it ever possible to
provide M/B quality repair in third-party repair services, chip soldering
without overheating, without damaging other M/B components?
I'm not interested it laptop will work only 3-6 month, then fault again.
I have option to replace M/B in Dell authorized service, but its very
expensive, plus I am not sure that NEW(not refurbished) motherboard still
available for my laptop model. Other option is to buy new notebook. But my
Dell laptop still have better configuration vs some new economic laptop

If you think you can do the work, you might find parts or another
identical laptop on Ebay.   You could swap parts (whole parts) to make
one good one.   If price was right, and you don't mind the labor hours.

If they do it at a reasonable price and have some type of guarantee on
the work you might as well have it fixed.
