motherboard component melted

I have been running my Antsle One D for 3 years now and I just replaced the battery but no power still. I opened it up to see the damage potential... It was a very small component, I was hoping I could have a tech identify the component so I could clean it and fix it myself, it is a fairly small blip.

The motherboard schematic part piece is PC95.

For something so small, I'd rather put in the elbow grease than source another solution as I have been happy with my Antsle since I got it going nicely one Xmas break.

While changing the power supply, I'm also creating a new NAS computer out of spare parts I have lying around the house. I discovered that two of my motherboard's power connector pins were partially melted and burned, and I'm seeking for a means to remove the burned plastic without causing more damage to the motherboard. I can plug in the new power supply safely and without incident.


I recently just mapped out brining it back to life with some different gear and I am so close to having so much progress and things complete! I just have an invalid license issue happening. I saved like $800 in this process.

If a component on your motherboard has melted, it is important to take immediate action to prevent further damage to the motherboard and other components in your computer. Here are some steps you can take:

  1. Turn off your computer and unplug it from the power source.
  2. Open the case and locate the melted component.
  3. Carefully remove the component from the motherboard, taking note of its position and orientation.
  4. Check for any visible damage to the motherboard or other components.
  5. Contact the manufacturer or a computer repair specialist for further assistance. They may be able to replace the damaged component or advise you on the best course of action.

It is important to handle the motherboard with care, as it is a delicate and integral part of your computer. I have been using X570 Motherboards and haven't faced any problems yet. If you are not comfortable attempting the above steps or if the damage is extensive, it may be best to seek professional help.
