EDIT- IIRC the bridging of the resistors makes the board less prone to power fluctutions. I could be confusing that with something else though
Right, I just suggest maybe soldering a small wire or something temporary you could easily remove if the fix does not correct the problem.
I'm not very good at replacing components
In my case I made the fix permanent because it worked very well.
Both both of my boards were pretty bad before the fix.
this is also the guide I have been using for motherboard fixes. so far the info has served me well.
