Changing it (SI4420DY N-FET 30V 10A 3W) should help (if it is burnt) and it is a lot easier than reballing cpu, also reballing cpu won't help if this IC is broken :)
I know 3 cards with this component burnt (one is laying next to me).
I think you may be right. I took a photo and there was a white blob on it. I used isopropyl alcohol to swab it and it looks like the plastic of the chip is melted.
Link to photo here before I cleaned the area. After I cleaned it, it was just black melted circular plastic.
So I am screwed I guess? Is this possibly a design problem? Normally you would think this should not happen. I did not even use it that much![ Edited by HammerD 06.12.2022 - 16:59 ]
