Repairing Of My Laptop
February 16, 2013 § Leave a comment
I’ve bought a second hand laptop from one of my friends. The company name is “Founder”. It is a china company that produces cheap laptops.
I bought the laptop with some problems. I have no intention to own a laptop at this time but the laptop seems to more problematic and useless to my friend. I just wanted to help him to get rid of it and buy a new branded laptop. And of course, I wanted to have new toy at my lab(hehe) to do my experiments with it.
After using it a week, the problems of the laptop makes me angry, and i just wanted to open it.
Yeah i have opened it, solved some of the problems. It takes me a total of 5 hours(A whole holiday) to learn how to open a laptop(HaHA).
The problems was :
- Both buttons of the touchpad are not working, but the touchpad is still working. I have wanted to replace those buttons but those are mounted on the motherboard so, i have opened those button by cutting the four plastic dots over the button. I have cleaned the inside of the button with a tiny matchstick and tissues.
- The processor is overheating, I have no blowers, so I opened the heatsink assembly to clean the cooling fan, I have also found there that IC compound is not on the right place. I have opened the cooling fan unit to clean it, and found that every hole or every duct(whatever it calls) is filled with a 4mm layer of dust and fur. I’ve cleaned those all and put the IC compound on the right place again.
- The DVD rom drive not working. I’ve opened it also but after that i have realized that i have nothing to do with it. There is only one way : Replace It.
- The batteries keep charge about two seconds, currently i am making a thesis on it.
Here is some pic and description of the whole 5hour process.
Opening The Harddisc, Battery And Back Little Covers.
Opening The Whole Back Cover.

Sorry, I was so much busy at the moment i have opened the motherboard and repairing the buttons. I forgot to pick a photo.
