    Ahhhh yes.... the solder points on the back of the board. I've been installing chips for awhile now and the first few boards were a nightmare when it came to the back solder points. Use soldering flux and a toothpick or something fine to dab it on with. Before you do that, gently scrape those points with a razor blade. Then dab some flux on, put a little solder on the tip of your iron and apply it to the board. Then apply some solder to the end of the wire, touch the iron and wire to the board and presto.... you got a solid connection.
