Meltdown in 3, 2, 1 poof

Alltech Computers AMD Meltdown

We at Alltech Computers enjoy diagnosing computers. Being able to find the cause of failure is rewarding especially when we are able to find meltdown issues like this. I guess it brings out our inner child that longs to tear things apart?

We got a laptop in that would appear to power up, but had no display. This was one of those fun finds, turns out the AMD southbridge got a bit too hot and decided to meltdown.
