    Parehas pwede ma-download, kaya lang ang free version ay kaya lamang mag-ayos ng 2 bad sectors.
    I have the full-version btw, hehe.
  • ^ thanks for the heads up on HDD Regenerator pero medyo mahal pala hehehe PaulusDarkus08

    So yung seagate 4tb backup plus portable ko. On first reformat- lumabas yung 8 bad sectors. Nagkopya ako kagabi ng maraming small files mga 200gb tapos biglang bumagal nasa 4mb lang yung write speed ko sa benchmark. Turns out- na corrupt yung ntfs so pero na repair naman sa win7 balik na siya ulit sa dating estimated 40mb write speed (Disks benchmark sa ubuntu).

    Pero ngayon naman fail yung short generic test. Running ngayon yung long generic (14:08 estimated time). Pass naman kanina yung short dst.

    Can't tell. Depende rin kasi. Pero ung post ni ryanrudolf maganda yan. Suction cup at Heatgun na lang ang kulang nya pwede na syang magbaklas pati ng mobile phone.
    Mabalik tayo doon sa tools. Depende kasi rin yan doon screws ng latop mo. I suggest na bumili ka ng gaya ng post dito. Sa akin meron na ako nung screwdriver interchangeable head, ang wala na lang ako ung fine tipped forceps at ung bent forceps at plastic pry-tool pang-alis doon sa mga plastic chassis ng laptop.
  • Matanong ko lang sa lahat...
    Ung laptop screen ko kasi eh FHD, meaning mataas ang resolution. Kaya lang pahirapan ang paghahanap ng replacement screen nito. Kung sakali ba, pwede akong gumamit ng ibang screen, pero ung mas mababa ang resolution?
    May nakita kasi ako sa isang site. Parehas na para doon sa laptop model na meron ako, kaya lang ung available eh mas mababa ang resolution kumpara doon sa meron ako.

  • Guys i have a issue like this on my MSI GE60 0nC i5
    <click here for link>

    This started when in SCM (System Control Manager), i click the turn off display button, and i panic when its not coming back, but when i use my flashlight on my phone, i saw the laptop is working, but monitor is very dark as if there's not light, then i tried everything, restart, shutdown, nothing works and i just go sleep, in the morning i tried removing battery and put it back then it works. So every time the laptop is going dim, the monitor backlight will not open again that i had to shutdown>remove the battery>put again>turn on... I want to fix it because sometimes its irritating, the simple fix i did now is on the battery settings, put dim / display off = never...

    I think theres no problem on graphic card, cause i'm playing Witcher 3 in straight 3 hours.

    Help me please thanks

  • Baka maluwang na yung pinag-sasaksakan ng Keyboard ng laptop. Try to plug it properly.

    If it doesn't work, it probably needs keyboard replacement.
  • Guys matanong ko lang, pwede ko ba palitan ang Laptop Screen ko ng para rin sa intended laptop brand and model, but with a lower resolution? Nahihirapan ako dito sa FHD.
  • ^
    Try scaling first:


  • ^Sir ginawa ko na. It didn't helped. Binawasan ko ng kaunti, pixelates/blurry ang.lahat nung binabaan ko, esp. ung mga texts.

    Sometimes you just need to replace the LCD panel, but in other cases you need to replace the LCD cable as well. It helps if you have the laptop's service manual as well as the parts listing.

    If you know the brand and model numbers of both the FHD and HD screen you can try to find their datasheets and check the connector pinout and see if they're compatible.
