Do-It-Yourself Laptop and Notebook Upgrading, Modding and Repairing

  • May marecommend kayo saan makakakuha ng FHD IPS panel for my Thinkpad T440p and i7 4702mq? Thanks.
  • Laptop problem:

    Yung laptop ko lagi na corrupt ang OS. Every week mga two times ako mag reinstall ng OS. Ano kaya ang problema? Gagana sya about 2-3 days tapos pag boot corrupted na. I upgraded the memory to 8GB(2 sticks) from 4GB and replace its HD to SSD.

    I checked the health of the SSD ok naman. Yung memory test ok naman. Any tips will be appreciated.

    Thanks!
  • ^ When you say "corrupted na," what exactly do you see on the screen on boot up?
  • @chauza

    The system is prompting me to repair the system or the OS does not load. I created a repair usb system drive for this and sometimes it works and sometimes it fails to repair. Most of the time i need to reinstall the OS to fix the problem.

    Thanks!
  • ^ Okay, so before you upgraded the ram and hdd, everything was working fine? If you still have the old hdd, try that and see if the system holds longer.
  • ^ Use memtest to check for faulty memory stick.
  • @chauza

    I upgraded the HD and added memory on the first day i bought my laptop. I can't use the replaced HD because i used it my desktop.

    @gtgonzales

    I run memtest and results came back ok. No errors or problems whatsoever.

    @all

    The laptop battery also failed. It only runs when it is plugged in wall outlet. Could this be a factor? I just bought this laptop this year.
  • ^ Might be a good idea to RMA it as soon as possible before the warranty runs out. But you will have to put the original hdd back and remove the ram you added. Brand new ba yung ssd at ram na nilagay mo?
  • @chauza

    Yes sir brand new po yung RAM at SSD. Sige po dalhin ko na lang sa binilhan ko. TY sa sagot.
  • ^ Identical ba ang memory sticks. Kung hindi identical, baka doon ang problem...
  • @gtgonzales

    Aftermarket po yung additional memory sticks. Baka nga po yun ang problema.
  • Planning to buy a laptop sa pawnshop (yung mga di na natubos). Worth it ba?
  • Take note of the specs and compare it to some laptops for sale here on TPC. From there, malalaman mo na kung sulit ba or hindi.
  • Good Day, i upgraded my laptop to samsung 970 evo nvme ssd from intel 660p. kaso hindi ko maboot yung windows sa samsung ssd.

    laptop is rog strix3 hero.

    nagclone muna ako sa sa hdd ng os then lipat sa samsung ssd. pero ayaw mag boot. ano puede gawin? thank you.
  • ^ You said you cloned from an hdd to the new Samsung SSD, where did that hdd came from? Or is it a clone from the 660p? If it's a clone from the 660p, then try Startup Repair using a Windows DVD or flash drive.

    Okay ba gamitin itong epoxy brand na ito to repair plastic LCD back cover ng laptop? If yes, matibay/tumatagal naman ba?




    Balak ko sana mag-DIY, nag crack yung mga pinagkakapitan ng hinge screws dun sa plastic lcd back cover. Will be using epoxy to repair the screw holes, parang ganito:




    Maraming salamat sa mga tutulong :)

  • I'd say it should hold pretty well, pero ang ginagawa ko madalas dyan is, tumutunaw ako ng plastic from a different junk laptop (or any other random thing made in plastic na sa palagay ko eh similar plastic ng sa laptop) using soldering iron and yun ang magiging pinaka "glue" to hold the brass screw holders. Ang problema mo, mataas ang pressure dyan sa area na yan kasi hinge, maaring hindi tumagal.

    At this point, i-try mo na lang. Be precise as much as possible since kailangan mag line up yan sa mga screws.

    Update mo kami dito kung ano resulta.
