    rjamesp – I would highly suggest that you do not do this….. Electronic engineers and computers spend a lot of time to produce a circuit that is supposed to be reliable and each component produces enough resistance so that the next one in line does not fail.

    If you are going to perform this operation I would recommend that you replace the failed component with the same specs.
