Hello, i am robin, new around here, know about BleepingComputers now since quite a awhile, i find the forum very useful and informative, so decided i'll ask the community if they can provide me, hopefully, with a little information about finding a component that is missing from my motherboard. hope this is the right place posting this question, apologies if it isn't.
So i have a laptop that kept overheating sometimes, toked it apart and cleaned it.. now here's the funny part, while assembling it back together, i genuinely managed to scratch the PCB so bad that a small component got knocked off of it, couldn't find the component nowhere, the chip came off yet the pads are still on the board, i've was hoping i could take a closer look at it to see if there's any information written on the component that could indicate what it is or to get an exact match.
Besides that, on the MB right bellow where the component was, is written "PQ56" i assume that's what it was called, or what needs to be put there.
after doing some digging on the internet, all i could find out is that it's some sort of "TRANZISTOR" but i'm not sure about this neither.
I'm providing 2 pictures one with the actual damaged MB and another one i've found on the internet that show's us how the component looked like.
