Adjusting memory timing does nothing. I have no doubt its the BGA.

I might try reflowing it, without actually completely removing and reballing it. Doesn't work anyway, what's there to loose!

A reflow isn't a bad idea. This is from the era when lead-free solder was still quite new and problematic.

At this point if it were me I would just call it a day and go to newegg or tigerdirect and buy another board...new, in the box, in unmolested plastic! Not some return, open box, or other oddball from fleabay that you can get on the super cheap.

I ended up giving up on the original dual core motherboard/cpu I bought for this, and just used the old Pentium 4.
It, of course, couldn't play HD youtube videos, but that was ok, as I was unemployed at the time  :--

Anyway! new job, so I bought a (very) second hand Dell dual core computer with no hard drive, for $60, and set that up instead  :-+ plus it came with a Windows Vista sticker on the side, so we'll call that a legitimate version of Windoze  :palm:

Yes, old thread, but I've concluded that no matter how fast the single core cpu, it won't do HD youtube.

In my experience, VLC isn't very effective at offloading with VAAPI. On a system that supports VAAPI but not VDPAU (AMD or Intel graphics), I use a branch of mplayer with support for VAAPI.
Cryptocurrency has taught me to love math and at the same time be baffled by it.

Cryptocurrency lesson 0: Altcoins and Bitcoin are not the same thing.
