While I do not sell on eBay very often, I will sell parts from bad machines and in some cases, the whole machine. My eBay link can be found here if you think I have something you may need for your repairs: https://www.ebay.com/usr/nipetr97
Students: Read this before claiming any of my pages.
If you are part of a student group and claim one of my Device pages or Wikis, please respect these guidelines:
- Only change content that needs to be revised. Leave working content alone.
- If the original content is mostly usable, it's best to do a revision with the original content and formatting preserved as much as possible.
- If any information is removed without replacement, verify it is inaccurate if known by others. If there is not enough time to verify it, please understand I did so personally before including it.
- If you find any content you can't verify but think it needs work (Ex: Information on how to use a certain game controller on PC), revise it in its current form.
- If such content is included, only replace the parts that need replacement - do not remove it or change everything. I've personally tested it and know it to work.
- Do not change the following:
- Non-patrol reputation (This is set high enough to prevent problems for me and established users who know what they are doing).
- TOC inclusion (Note: If removed for editing, add it back. This is fine if you need to remove it for the project term).
If these guidelines are respected, I do not have a problem with student edits. I know how I handle it is more unconventional then other pages since I will centralize common problems (and their workarounds if I know what to do) to make the information easier to find.
Regarding major changes beyond normal editing: If you are considering a major change, it's best to err on the side of caution and use the existing formatting and replace that section. In most cases, the content is (generally) laid out in such a way that the only requirements are a rewrite on the section that is being changed. In most cases, there is no need to completely rework how I wrote the original content.

Resposta para "Why is my mac getting really hot to the point its warning me"Apple uses thermal paste that dries out in 2-3 years and goes bad at 4 years. If you have never repasted it or cleaned out the dust from the system, start there so you have a known troubleshooting point to backtrack to and can rule this out early. The thermal paste may even be dust with how the machine is behaving. The guide for the fan can be found here and the heatsink guide can be found here. Try and find Artic MX-4 for this if you can as Artic Silver 5 doesn’t always cure right in laptops, but since this one isn’t difficult to try again on you may want to try Artic Silver 5 on this.
Resposta para "Small black circle defect."Don’t touch it if it’s working otherwise. Unless you want to experience a phone that’s totaled out due to the cost of the screen alone, live with it as you’re extremely lucky if it’s a crack. However, if you insist on looking into it, here is this guide covers the process. This WILL compromise the water resistance for good, so don’t put the phone near water anymore if you can help it. It could have been worse:
Resposta para "does not power up and totally dead"Make sure this isn’t a WD Ware drive. You can ID these by how new it is - Ware became a problem in 2010 and possibly a few 2009 drives. If it shows as blank in a generic enclosure, it is a Ware drive and you can’t recover the data by dumping the crappy WD USB bridge. The problem with WD Ware is the WD PCB is needed to decrypt the drive - BUT from what I understand it doesn’t always matter where the PCB came from, as long as the model of the drives on the case match - I think the capacity can even be different but it’s better to do a 1:1 capacity match (Ex: 2TB failed with a used 2TB Live). HOWEVER, if it is unique per drive on the newer Ware drives, this can potentially invalidate the key and you will lose your data. I would try and repair the PCB if you can do so or move the chips that are known to have the keys to the donor PCB - once you have the data on another (non HW encrypted custom built!) drive, you can then reuse the drive from the bad enclosure as the key no longer matters.
Resposta para "How to take apart my Logitech Mouse #402641"It’s a Logitech MX620 based on the part number. The mouse is held together with screws under the pad; you didn’t look hard enough. If you need an idea on how to take it apart, refer to this video. It isn’t English, but it goes over mouse disassembly and should be easy to follow along.
Resposta para "Adhesive choice for edges of screen after replacement?"Low tack double sided tape if you insist on replacing it. You will be fine without it, but the part of the bezel with the HP logo may appear loose without any used, but it's cosmetic and only matters if you care about looking passably stock. Even HP still uses screws on their bezels despite the move to tape being the norm. Personally I wouldn’t replace it, but something like this will work if you insist on adding tape. Just make sure the permanent side (the part that comes off the roll without protection) goes on the bezel and not the LCD in case you need to service it - these new LCDs are so thin it doesn’t take much to break it again. Tape is just going to complicate service since it's a tape/mechanical hybrid bezel configuration.
Resposta para "Spilled tea on right side of keyboard."Laptop keyboards usually do not survive liquid spills - even in business models with drainage holes. Head onto eBay and buy one just in case because the odds are very much against you. Hopefully it isn’t a plastic weld design failure where you need to buy the palmrest or use JB-Weld to hold it in. What you need to do is take the laptop apart and clean the motherboard using this guide. If you have an ultrasonic cleaner that’s the absolute best way to clean water damage, but most people don’t have one at their disposal. In lieu of that, 99% IPA and an anti-static brush will work. To be absolutely sure, clean the entire board - even the parts you don’t suspect were part of the tea spill. We can’t help you find the guides needed without a model. In addition to cleaning it, use this time to repaste the CPU and clean the dust bunnies out. Since you need to do a complete teardown on many Acer laptops to do this, getting it out of the way now is ideal. I don’t recommend Artic Silver 5 for laptops since it doesn’t...
Resposta para "My chromebook has an admin on it, how do I remove it?"The enterprise enrollment is tied to the serial number and board of the Chromebook. There is no way to get rid of it. It sounds like a school forgot to remove it since iBoss software is mainly found on ex school ones as a overall general rule - it doesn’t seem to show up on anything else. What you will need to do is return it as defective (because it is) to the eBay seller or contact Google with a receipt and provide the serial number of the Chromebook and have them remove it. Only once it’s removed can you powerwash it and bring it back to a normal state. It’s your call here on what to do, but I’d probably just return it if I bought it because it’s not my fault the seller was negligent.
Resposta para "How to attach Samsung Galaxy S9 Front Glass"Are you talking about the ASSEMBLY with the panel or the GLASS ONLY part? Glass only is just about impossible for inexperienced end users - even I have trouble with it and I’m no stranger to a difficult repair like that. The edge screen phones are well beyond my ability to pull off. If you bought the glass only part without a panel, don’t try unless you’re 110% comfortable with it - it is an art. I know how to do it on the thoroughly obsolete phones (S3/Note 2 age) but not Edge screen phones - I still need to learn how. If you’re talking about the bare screen without a frame, this guide covers the job.
Resposta para "Adding a HDD to my laptop."Is it the eMMC model? Unless you have one of the lazily built ones with a SATA interposer, you need to replace the motherboard to add a normal hard drive. If it’s a Celeron or low end Pentium, I would strongly suspect yours is one of the eMMC variants. The eMMC models are common on the low end and certain stores like Target because people who buy a laptop from Target or Walmart don’t exactly know better and they can sneak these bad designs into these stores. They also love to shovel the models with soldered RAM when they have two different boards in these stores as well. DON’T buy a laptop from a department store or a place like Walmart because that’s where these things always seem to come from. These laptops shouldn’t exist, but they do so you need to be careful and check the storage. If it’s 32-64GB, it’s almost certainly eMMC. 128-256GB+ is usually a SATA SSD and 500GB+ is a toss up between a spinning drive or a large SSD - usually a hard drive.
Resposta para "How to retain water resistency after performing backglass replacement?"It’s better to treat it as permanently compromised and treat it as if the water resistance is gone if you repair or damage a water resistant phone. Even if you reseal it, you don’t know if it’ll fail due to a poor job again. Treat it as a non water resistant phone going forward once you open it if at all possible. Do your best to seal it back up, but don’t trust it will work 100% ever again.
