I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Hey guys, my brother just brought me an old laptop with a fried motherboard from the company he works for and was wondering if there are any parts in it that can be salvaged. However, while I am fairly familiar with desktop PCs, I don't really know anything about laptops and am not sure how to take it apart, test the components, or whether they would be worth anything.

The laptop is a Sony Vaio model # PCG-9H4L. I took a couple back panels off and can see that the laptop has just 256MB of RAM (PC2100) and a 40GB, 4200 rpm HD. I know it has an Athlon XP CPU but I'm not sure what speed (is it even possible to remove??). Anyhow, any advice you can give about what to look for, how to remove certain parts, or about the value of these parts would be greatly appreciated.

A:Old laptop parts

Laptop parts are not usually very valuable unless they're for a popular model that a lot of people have. No one needs them unless they have the same model. Hard drives and memory can bring in more money since they are universal, but screens and cases and things like that can be hard to unload. The only way to really know is to look around and see what they are going for. All laptops are assembled differently, so you just have to look carefully and start taking screws out until you can figure out how it comes apart.

Hi i have already built a desktop computer and now i would like to build a laptop with very cheap parts. I am however finding it difficult to find a barebones kit or just parts anywhere on the internet, i used tigerdirect for my desktop parts but they only have high end laptop barebones and parts. If you have any ideas please post. Thanks!


A:Solved: Laptop parts

There are few options for building laptops, and as you've seen, most kits are for higher end systems. Building a laptop is not like building a desktop. The options just don't exist.

So I have a broken Dell Studio 1747 laptop with a fried graphics card (or at least I think that's a problem) and to my understanding it would be cheaper to get a new laptop than to repair it.

What I'm wondering is, is there any parts that I can somehow take out and put into a new lappy to save money before I throw the husk away eg. the hard drive or the blu-ray drive?


A:Which parts of my laptop can be salvaged?

Unfortunately not much. I'd keep the hard drive and perhaps pick up a USB dock for it, but you have to spend money on the dock then... I used to buy external drives, but now I've got a couple docks and they come in handy quite often but my situation may be different than yours. I wouldn't bother with keeping the bluray drive unless your new laptop doesn't have one AND the drive is replaceable. However, you could probably make a few bucks by selling it.

I recently got a couple of laptops from my friend. One is missing the DVD drive and the battery. The other one has a cracked LCD. I was really easy to take off. Right now I'm using the one without an LCD. It is hooked up bto my external LCD. I would like to buy some parts for these laptops.
I looked, but I can't find the DVD drive. It is an Asus N7100 laptop. My friedn told me the driver model was TS-L462, but I bought one and it didn't work. Can someone help me find one?

The other computer is a Sceptre N4-U2000. I need the LCD for it. Can someone tell me where to get one?
On the Sceptre I'm also missing the drivers, The drivers I downloaded don't work.

A:Laptop missing parts

Most laptop DVD drives are the same with the exception of the door. If you don't have the old laptop DVD door to swap it with you may want to google laptop parts tons of sites will come up and you can usually find the parts by model number of the laptop. Just make sure you do a BBB check on the companies before ordering to make sure you are not dealing with a scam company. You may have to look at quite a few before you find the parts for your particular machine.

I have loads of laptops that I want to repair in order to sell on ebay, the problem is, I dont know where to get spare parts from. Obviously, I have been looking on the internet for websites that may sell spare parts, but can not find any. I should mention that I am from the UK, so I will need to buy from somewhere that ships to me.

Any help ?

Also, I am specifically looking for spare ribbon cables that connect to laptop touchpads (Mouse) and new plastics i.e palmrests.

A:Where to buy spare laptop parts ??

Since every model of laptop has unique components and flex cables, you normally buy them from the manufacturer. Another source is find dead laptops and cannibalize them for the parts. Most of the cables in a laptop are not generic like desktop machines.

HI all

recently made the very wise decision to spill coffee into my laptop

did the usual drill, unplugged it wiped down visible residue, left it to dry then cleaned out with alcohol

frist of all both the trackpad and keyboard weren't working but having taken the keyboard apart and disconnected the board, I've found that the mouse will work.

connecting it back however, renders both useless (also it appears as though the laptop thinks that buttons are being pressed because it'll keep being woken up out of hibernate (as if someone pressed a key) if you put it to sleep.)

anyway I digress

I'm looking to see about getting a replacement board similar to this one


but I'm having trouble finding one in thhe UK for my laptop

my laptop is an Asus X70sr

I beleive that moisture has gotten into the circuit board of the keyboard and that is what needs replacing, does anyone know of anywhere in the UK (web) that I can order the necessary parts for?

Hello All,

I am not that good at desktop hardware and almost zero in laptop disassembling. My all hardware experiences were swapping RAM sticks , replacing old HDD's(Probably IDE's) with one another and a few DVD writers. Now my laptop is dead and I've told me that the motherboard crashed and it is not worthy to replace and I replaced it with one.

Now the only part I could reuse out of my once a favorite machine was the HDD.

And I am now purely looking to get my hands dirty on hardware by doing stuff here as my laptop is already dead .

I think the processor is good in it and i am looking whether I could buy a cheaper motherboard and use it to have my machine run and learn something useful.

I would not be disturbed by its performance and by that I mean I don't need an expensive updated motherboard. I just need one which is compatible and to see it work.

Is that a good idea? Or could I use the processor in a desktop. I have a couple of old cpu's
(P4 days!) sitting idle which I think are not compatible with an i3 2nd gen processor(If laptop processor's are really supported in a desktop motherboard). Or I could buy a desktop motherboard put the processor in, use the old HDD's and RAM sticks and play around.

Which of these makes some sense? I am again mentioning that I am doing this out of pure curiosity spending more bucks on a dead machine and i don't expect the machine for more than spreadsheets and firefox.

Hello forum, I bought a Yoga 900 last year. Unfortunately my girlfriend spilled a coffee over it which broke it.I therefore sent the laptop to the Lenovo/Medio repair centre in Germany before Christmas.I got a quote for the repair, ca. 500 pounds for several boards that needed replacement which I paid for up-front as required.I then never heard back from Lenovo, having to chase them frequently on what is going on. At some point heard that the spare parts weren't available. Never heard anything about potential timing of a repair. Having had to chase this repeatedly (we'll call you back within two working days) for several weeks without anyone ever properly getting back to me I asked the customer support to escalate the issue.Today I heard that they have decided they don't have spare parts, therefore can't repair the laptop and I will get the money for the repair refunded.After 3 months of having the laptop in the repair centre without any feedback!I don't understand how Lenovo can't have spare parts for a laptop that was sold not too long ago and effectively is still being sold..That to me is shocking customer service (they should refund money for keeping the laptop for 3 months if not even offer to replace it by a new device for a certain amount of money etc.).I guess the only option know is to try and fix it myself by buying spare parts, fitting them myself but unfortunately thereby my warranty will be void :-/Does anyone know of a good place to buy spare...

Usually,you would only find something like that at a local

I recently ordered a p50s from the lenovo outlet. I'm happy with the laptop, but I do feel like I got a little less than I paid for since it was listed as having a 512 gb m.2 SSD (my understanding is the lenovos that use these use pci-e drives that are faster plus it would have left me an empty drive bay for me to use for an upgrade) and DDR4 ram. It actually has a 2.5 inch SSD and DDR3 ram. In looking into the issue, I found that the p50s actually isn't compatable with either of those parts. Short of returning the laptop, is there anything I can expect lenovo to do to make me feel better about the situation?

Ok so I had a laptop custom built for me a while ago.
intel i7 quad core
8gb ram
nvidia geforge 750m

Now. I am starting to play more taxing games like skyrim and battlefield but the computer overheats and shuts down. I want to know if it is possible to take the parts out of my laptop and use them to power a desktop pc

By this I mean exactly the same setup and parts but just put it in a desktop case and put in some fans to keep it nice and cool.
I was also thinking that I could use a moniter but also use my laptop screen as a monitor as well. Perhaps even use the laptop downstairs and take the chalice upstairs when I want to play on the monitor.

I don't myself see a problem since it is essentially just giving it a bigger case and connecting it to a monitor instead of a laptop screen, however I am not a big expert with computes and several people said it wouldn't work.

Thanks in advance for everyone's help

A:Possibly a silly question. Using laptop parts in a desktop

And those people are right. You'd need someone to make you a custom case for your laptop. The layout, mounting points, Input/Output ports are all different and not standardized on laptops, you can't just shove them into a desktop case. Additionally how you would use the laptop's keyboard, touchpad, and LCD panel? You'd have to use all external devices and hope that the laptop can run an external monitor from power on to Windows. The cable for the LCD is short and they don't make extensions so you'd have to incorporate that into the custom case as well and have a weird looking hybrid that's not practical.

Or you could just a laptop cooling pad and a can of compressed air to blow out the vents and fans on the laptop every once in a while.

So I spilled coffee on my laptop, over the keyboard. I turned it off immediately, took out the power, but stupidly left the battery in. I wiped it dry, left it a couple of hours, then tried turning it on. It started for a second then turned off again. Yes I now realise what a idiot I am for doing this.

So I opened it up, cleared out all the excess coffee. I had only spilled the coffee on the left hand side of the keyboard, and directly underneath this area is the the fan which didn't seem to have any residue on it, and the power board assembly. The motherboard was on the otherside of the laptop and free from harm.

So having cleaned it out as much as possible and let it dry out for days, I try turning it on and it won't even start up. I'm thinking that I may have messed up by turning it on after only a few hours, and with pic related being directly underneath and probably covered in coffee, it short circuited and ruined it.

My question is does this mean the entire motherboard and electrical components of the laptop are defective? Bearing in mind no coffee was spilled on the motherboard. Or might it mean only this particular component, the power board/switch assembly which connects the power button to the motherboard, is broken? Will replacing this part alone be enough to salvage my laptop?

A:Spilled coffee on laptop, question about replacement parts

1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy
2. As you say - easy to do but a rather expensive cup of coffee
3. Such a problem is I am sorry to say impossible to solve - in an online situation - the only advise that I can offer is
If you are not technically knowledgeable enough to dismantle the laptop and check circuits with a meter - not of course with power connected - then it is a lost cause until you evaluate the cost effectiveness of paying for a computer repair business to evaluate it.
Coffee - water is of course a conductor and will effectively short live to earth - anything could have gone.
SORRY but a real and effective analysis will require professional test equipment and IMHO depending on local rates - you are talking about something in the order of £30 just to tell you it is a lost cause.
Unless it is a valuable - newish laptop I would think your best is to take out the HDD and see if that is a run connected to another computer in an enclosure or docking station

Hello, i had bought the XPS 15 laptop approximately 5 months ago from philippines and right now i am in india. When i am charging the laptop i get electic shock when i touch the metal parts of the laptop.
But recently i discovered when the laptop is charging i get current from other parts of the house as well such as metallic bathroom taps and metal grill of my house.
I tested it using tester so its not some assumption but real current.
So please provide some guidance on why is this happening and why is the current flowing in different parts of my house when laptop is charging.

Before you throw out your old, dead hard drives, dismantle them and recover the magnets inside.

Some of the most powerful magnets known to man are inside.

A couple of cute little motors too, but they don't like to come out easily.

A:Fun parts inside old parts

I agree, just don't put the magnets together with your fingers in the middle of them !

Good news first, yes you'll be able to use your Radeon 7850 in a Intel rig.
What make you think you'll need a new PSU?

PSU, Mobo and Case must be ATX

Type of RAM module must be supported by mobo

FSB of RAM and CPU shouldn't be higher than mobo's FSB

CPU socket type must match that of the motherboard...

graphics card you want must also be able to be used on the motherboard (PCI-E or AGP, etc)

mobo and PSU have same number of pins (for mobo power socket)

Is this all right, or am I missing something else? Thanks!

Hi Everybody,
Ok I was thinking about buliding a low-end computer just for Internet use for my father. I already have a mointer, keyboard, mouse, speakers, cd-rw drive, 250w p/s. I dont want a floppy drive in it. And the motherboard doesnt have to have intergrated ethernet becuase I also have an pci ethernet card. I dont want a dial-up modem in it either.

So basicly what recommendation for a case, motherboard and cpu. Also the motherboard has to have intergrated sound and video. I am guessing a celeron cpu? Also what ram should I get in terms of how many mb or gb's. Is 256mb of ram enough?

Thank you very much techspot members

A:What parts should I get?

Also yeah I got 40gb harddrive and windows xp home too so I dont need that

Sent my IBuypower PC in when it wouldn't boot. They told me the motherboard, video card and liquid cooling system all dead. Around $500 just for parts. Machine cost $1200 and is 2 years 8 months old.

2 issues is smarter to a whole new machine or rebuild with oem parts. Their service was horrible so I'll have to do the rebuild.

Also can I place the hard drives from this machine into an external case and still run the programs and access the data.

So, decided I should do a little outside the case upgrading. Problem is, since most of my expertise is on case hardware, I have no clue whats good, or where to buy said items im looking for, so hoping someone can help me out.

Parts I'm looking for is new speakers, new mouse/keyboard, and a webcam. I'm looking for something good, reliable and does the job, some fancy perks would be nice, but nothing wallet breaking. I don't wanna spend $1000 on them, but preferably less then say ooh $300-$400 max, any less and it be better.. The ones I have now, are your basic Walmart bottom barrel ones, they work, but my mouse is already going out and my speakers sound like they're on the way out as well. So any advice, on what kind, where to buy online, so on and so forth would be greatly appreciated.

A:Looking for new parts

Are you looking to upgrade to gaming equipment ( speakers, keyboard and mouse ) ?? if so then I'd recommend not to be so cheap as it will pay off in the long run.
