Default Re: Shuttle SD36G5M - Mobo died, recapped, still issues

That's a MOSFET. The metallic bit underneath it looks like where the solder has started melting and coming out! I'm not surprised you burned your finger on it. It should not be getting that hot.

Inspect the board where you worked in it and be sure there are no shorts, for example some solder could be bridging pads.

Otherwise, that MOSFET or another connected to it could be damaged or the controller driving it could be bad, or both.
