Hey all, I am doing the FRAM mod, and even though I used Chip Quick and flux, I still managed to lift pin 6 (A4).  Unfortunately this pin goes under the body of the component and I can't tell where it comes out.  Does anyone know what pin and chip this goes to so I can make a bodge wire?  Thanks!


I didn't realize Saturn schematics were a) available, and b) available here!  For anyone with my same problem reference this:

Pin 6 on the FRAM (IC8) goes to pin 5 on IC7! 


I'm glad you figured it out.  =)

I figured THAT out, but when I re-capped my mainboard, Optical drive and PSU, when I put it all back together yesterday my formerly working mint disc drive is now not spinning or recognizing discs are in the tray....
