And dang vant kun ...... Sorry for ur loss. The only right thing to do is to give it a military class burial....by lighting it up with some AKs and convincing yourself to buy a new htpc even though the other one still works


I don't have the mini B cable braid link on me right now but here's the camera strap :D

Good thing that it still works lol.

I'm not the type to RMA my stuff. If something breaks I either fix it myself or get a new one. This HTPC was a DIY build anyway, so even if it did break I'd just put an entry level graphics card in there.

If only there was just a little more empty space in there; then it would be enough for my disappointment in this internal hardware layout.

My laptop runs pretty hot. The last time i opened it, i was barely able to put it back. It is not in warranty for some time. I think that opening it again might proove usefull for cleaning. I wonder if cleaning would give me a boost in any way?

Yes. Temps will drop. CPU will stop throttling. Replace your thermal paste too. Helped me personally.

What laptop is it exactly but yeah most of them are just screw in. I would recommend cleaning the fan when you open it, that's probably the only thing you gotta worry about unless you see dust everywhere so blow canned air on those too.

Dell 15R/ n5010 - year 2010.

 

I opened it once and it was bad, i barely could put it back together, it was scary stuff.

 

I think that i would need to open it again, it gets hot and slow, I need more processing power for my project, and I must fiind a solution fast.

Personally for a computer like that, I'd clean the fan or make sure it's not failing since that might be the reason it's hot. Then I'd buy more ram if you have free slots to speed it up, and reformat the computer OS & install the bare minimum of programs.

I wouldn't worry about RAM.

If you can, clean out the thing and report back. Wiping the drive may help with speed.

I found that upgrading to an SSD saw a major improvement in speed in an Inspiron 530s I had. Also good thermal paste helps with reducing the CPU temperature, and probably increasing the performance too. Replacing the original thermal paste with Arctic's MX-2 drastically reduced the stock cooler's fan noise.

 

Note to self: smartphone thermal pads do not make for a good CPU thermal solution.

Nope, I just knew the fans easily went up to 100% speed and it was quite loud.

I will try to clean. 

 

The hdd I cannot really format, as most of my data is on it.

 

I should look for a good themral paste. 

 

There is only one heatsink, I wonder if i will have to change the themral paste of cpu and gpu?
