Hi There;

        Thank you so much for the link.  After going there, I noticed several soldering kits.  Since I am a novice or entry level person when it comes to soldering, which kit should I purchase?  Basically, I am wanting to use a soldering kit within the realms of removing and installing integrated components on pc and laptop motherboards.

          Any help with regards to the proper kit will be appreciated.

         Thank you

George, that requires an advanced soldering system - not cheap.
you would need de-soldering tools for various chip sizes

normal soldering kits only are used for replacing basic components, like capacitors, resistors..

you can remove chips by cutting their leads, and leave them as long as possible on the mobo.
then remove each one separately

Hi Everybody;

          After going through some of my stuff, I found contained within a black zipped leather case a computer repair kit which contained a soldering iron and solder.  However, I do have some questions about it.  First,  the soldering iron is 30 to 35W.  Will that be sufficient enough power?  And, secondly, I noticed the solder container does not have any identifying information on it.  Therefore, I am not sure if it contains lead or not.  If it helps, the solder wire is gray in color.  It might be a mixture of tin and lead, but, I am not sure.  If it does contain lead, is there any health risk to using it?

>>   First,  the soldering iron is 30 to 35W.    <<    i think you need more power; i found my own 60 W too light for desoldering capacitors from Mobo's (they have 2 soldering layers) and had to use my old 100 W soldering iron - earthed of course
imho - all solder contains lead; and yes there are some minor health risks using it; but if you don't eat it, you will have no ill effects from random use.
using it several hours per day for years can be something else...

Hi Everyone;

         Thanks so much for the link.  I took the time and checked out several of the purchasing links contained within the URL provided.  Unfortunately, I still have not made any kind of final decision yet on what exactly to purchase because I am in the process of gathering more information.

         Many thanks though for the link and followup suggestions.
