    The previous suggestions were good but buying a used, not reconditioned m/bon ebay can be like buying someone else's problem. I did an HP using the tinfoil method and a heatgun used for heatshrink tubing, etc. Focus the heat, shield the areas you don't want to heat. Only problem is your stacked/add-on vga card; if the bad solder is from the card to the m/b then I don't know you could get heat to the card base w/o overheating the components on the card. Good Luck!
