Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous
I am Frank, 46 y/o I fix laptops wich are broken from falling or heat.
I all ways hear my laptop is gone i trew it out.
Well stop doing that, find a old case and fix yourself a portable pc with wifi and a battery so you can put it in a caravan or whatever ..
No need to buy a tablet wich can fall and break easy.. i dont want one.
I did this.
I have taken a heatgun and removed everything.
I made a aluminumfoil patch to protect the videocards plastics and condensators.
I have put some heatpaste in the aluminiumfoil so it heats even less.
Then i put the videocard under the heatgun on 220 degrees celcius for 7 min.
Works again so i now had a working laptop but 2 broken screens. 15.4 inch
I only had a 17 inch working screen.
I end up with the idea to put it all in a desktop case since i still had one standing around eating dust.
To make a long story short. I took pictures.
Have fun building your own!
Rebuild the laptop parts so they do not make connection to the case with wood i used MDF 10mm
26 x 30 cm will do the trick.
Reminder put it in so you can see where to put things and think it over so you can connect everything easy.
My start button is inside :-( i have the luck my case opens from the top so its a easy move.
On the MDF i used the adapters from the old motherboard to rize the laptopboard from the wood.
There is air flow between the wood and the mobo, this makes the motherboard cooler.
