Old a1286 - Broken memory clip

What seemed like a simple repair just became a major frustration: one of the memory retention clips broke off. The upper memory slot now won't hold it's memory in place. Any suggestions on how to properly repair this?


You asked for any solutions...there is no solution without replacing the RAM slots/banks (have fun). You can melt another clip in place, but it won't be strong enough to withstand being re-stressed in the future. The best "solution" you're after will be a unit-level solution (i.e. you install the board into a unit and then essentially fix the RAM in place someway, however you choose), NOT a board-level solution. Period. Don't waste your time; max out working slot, move on.
