LOL, that card is a Chinook.
Alright. Let's stay on topic (more pics of sexy "PC" hardware).
Took apart a friend's laptop from Samsung. It was dead(would not POST). The service center said the motherboard needed replacement. Finally, this is the result.
Intel 945GM+ICH7+Core 2 Duo @ 2.0 GHz
Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz
Isopropyl alcohol and my magic effects(thermal compound completely removed and reapplied.
Discovered the power button was faulty as well. Needed to be pressed hard. So I poured some IPA inside it and pressed it continuously until the dirt came out.
Everything connected-Preparing for naked testing.
I did this work roughly 8-9 months back. Even today, the laptop runs fine.
IPA = isopropyl alcohol?
i've done similar with sticky buttons on an ipad, never thought of it with a laptop.
you can fix most things just by cleaning them!
Yeah it actually works in most cases. Those oily dirt are easily dissolved in IPA and comes out. In the worst case, the inside of the button is coated with some oxide for which replacement of the button is the only option. You can take apart the button but in most cases, it is even more messed up.
Yeah. Actually the service center guys are too lazy to do that and if they do it, they do it so bad that after a few months again, it has to come to the service center again which will be the laptop's favorite place before it finally goes to the dump.
Out with the old:
In with the new:
The battle arena awaits:
Tossed a soldier into the battle arena late last night:
Only one old and tired soldier, no new recruits in waiting? I'll see you on the battlefield.
Sniper reporting in. He'll keep the new recruit's back-side covered. :
jesus, does it come with a new pair of pants?
No, but he did come with back-up:
Busy time for you
Any ROG sample yet?
I write a final tomorrow and another Tuesday, too.
But still...you have no idea.
And that's just what I'm allowed to post.
