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

  • me tao paba dito?

    To be honest, I've never heard of an SSD filler frame. Can you post some pics of your laptop's HDD mounting hardware (caddy, rails, etc.) so we can see the problem?
  • ^I believe usernamer2 is referring to a 7mm to 9.5mm spacer
  • @velc2009

    oo ata. kasi nung sinukat ko ung HDD pumapalo xa ng 9.5mm at sakto xa sa laptop. tapos ung ssd medyo mas manipis ng konti. pag sukat ko 7mm lang. so pag hindi ko nilagyan ng kahit ano, maxadong maluwag, niremedyohan ko lang pansamantala

    eto yung pic

    yung sandisk ssd plus lang kasi binili ko at walang kasamang filler frame katulad nung nasa picture above para sa extreme pro.

    baka meron kayong idea kung saan ako pede maka score nyan
  • ^
    Some have used a bit of cardboard or illustration board as spacers.
  • Tanong ko na rin dito mga sir, im planning to upgrade my laptop to ssd.

    nag price check ako ng ssd's sa suking tindahan ko:
    Kingston SSDNow V300 240GB SSD - 3690
    SanDisk Plus 240gb - 4250
    SanDisk Ultra II 240GB - 4950
    Samsung 850 Evo 250GB - 4900

    Around 4k lang yung budget ko kaya tanong ko sana kung sulit na yung Kingston SSDNow V300.
  • @awake
    got it. thanks sa input. pero sa future, pag meron nakakakaalam, refer refer lang nang makabili

    thanks again
  • @toonice

    ok na ung sandisk plus. kung sata III device mo papalo ng 500 ang read/write nun.

    kung kaya naman ng budget yung 950 Evo, mag Evo kanalang.

    pero tingin ko sandisk ako all the way. extreme pro
  • ^ ok na rin yung kingston. merong mga websites for comparison sa mga ganyan. I have the uv400 and a patriot ssd for more than a year without problems so far.
  • @adonis

    nice
  • mga sir may nakasubok na po ba mag upgrade processor from sandy to ivy na hm65 laptop chipset?
  • @ferta_32
    The issue is not the chipset but the BIOS support. Most Sandy Bridge laptops lack BIOS support for Ivy Bridge processors, unless the manufacturer reused the board for Ivy Bridge models and updated the BIOS. Then again, I've never encountered an Ivy Bridge laptop with an HM6x series chipset.

    Ot the other hand, there'is the alternative Coreboot firmware for the Thinkpad T420, which explicitly supports Ivy Bridge CPUs. However, this firmware doesn't work well with Windows OSes, and is pretty much geared for Linux.

  • I just bought today an Asus Laptop (FX550V), It is an i5 7200HQ, 4gig ram and GTX950M 2gig. The hdd is not an SDD. Nababagalan ako since all my other systems are already with SSD for its OS. Thus, I want to upgrade it to an SSD or an M.2. Available na ba ang M.2? How much kaya? If I would do the upgrade, would it void the warranty?
    Modify message
  • May M.2 slot ba iyan sir? Kung meron, PCIE x2 or x4 or SATA interface ba? Kailangan specific para ma-make sure na tama yung SSD na bibilhin mo

    Kung mag-uupgrade ka ng SSD, kailangan mo lang ibalik yung original drive tapos OK na ulit ang warranty, UNLESS may protective seal na nilagay si ASUS na kilangan mong sirain bago mo mapalitan ang components
  • Kailangan ba buksan ang likuran ng laptop ko para malaman ko kung meron syang M.2 slot? Is there a way to know what is inside my Asus FX550V, re: kung meron bang M.2 slot, without physically opening the laptop?
  • Wala akong makitang information sa internet so the only way is kailangan mong buksan ang ilalim
  • So the closest lang na nakita to is yung X550. Pero walang M.2 slot. So SATA port lang ang meron. Kung gusto mo ng HDD + SSD, kailangan mong palitan ng HDD yung Optical drive sata port.
  • Hi good day guys , suggest naman po kayo ng trusted at affordable tech shop na kaya ang Board Level Repair. , kung meron sa Taguig maganda pero kung wala pasabi nalang po ung name ng shop at address.

    What happened is ung laptop ko HP ELITEBOOK 2560P , ayaw na mag On kasi pinaghahampas daw ng pamangkin namen ung pinaka keyboard then bigla nalang nag shutdown. Pina tignan namen sa mga shop sa antipolo , and diagnosis nila is MOBO problem daw and kelangan na daw palitan which is same unit price na daw ng new laptop , though hindi pa naman nabubuksan ung laptop , sana may pagasa pang maayos. Please Help me mga ka TPC
