GPU heat spreaders in order to heat the solder to liquid point, so it reconnects, alternatively, if you don't have a heat gun believe it or not, a powerful hair drier will work to, but is not likely to complete liquefy the solder, just expand it enough so you can boot and keep running till it's shut down, figured I'd tack that on there, I plan to make a full POST debug how and repair guide on here eventually.

No problem, and a side note I forgot to mention, sometimes due to either age, where solder oxidizes after a while, or due to extreme heat, solder on components such as onboard graphics processors can crack, and cause the system not to post, simply using a method known as a reflow can fix the issue for anywheres from weeks, to a year. What a reflow is taking a heat gun, which is a over powered hair drier, and laying the system on it's side on a level surface, you can take the board out if you wish or leave it in, just remove any other hardware first, and blowing heat onto the.
