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.

"Cannot boot machine, not even into safe mode."에 답변Are you using an Intel onboard (IGP) or dGPU (GPGPU) machine? The majority of factory GPU systems come with the 7570, which is a low profile GPU converted to work with a different bracket. There are other cards that don’t do this, but they were all optional CTO upgrades. The problem is going to be caused by something entirely different if it’s an i5/onboard configured system. The only difference between the conversion and low profile is the port type on a lot of them - the low profile is usually DP and the conversion is HDMI. The low end GPU Dell shipped with these often die due to the small cooler and GPU heat output being bad enough under load it cannot quickly dissipate the heat. These low profile GPUs are kind of notorious as a whole for dying like this since the cooling is almost always insufficient unless it’s paired with a joke GPU dye that shouldn’t exist like the GT420. You never get any warning with these things - it just fails as you found out. It’s all good until you reboot it and make the GPU...
"Mid 2011 iMac graphics card upgrade"에 답변The problem is you need a very specific MXM card to do it due to the need to modify the firmware. The people doing it are using Dell MXM cards and flashing modified firmware on the cards. They usually come out of Precision mobile workstations. It isn't a cut and dry job - it is involved. You need to make sure it’s flashable with custom GPU firmware (not all are), check if it mounts right in comparison to the old card and it’s a difficult install since the whole iMac needs to be taken apart.
"Laptop doesn't turn on"에 답변Sounds like the BIOS flash went bad or you flashed a incorrect/custom BIOS to the machine. You have one of the HP SureStart systems so recovery is dead simple, but it also means that if you attempted to flash a custom BIOS you killed it because it isn’t possible on the SureStart hardware. However, the advantage working in your favor is SureStart also makes it easy to recover. It is possible to recover the BIOS, but it doesn’t always work. What you need to do is hold Win+B before holding the power button. If you have a image of the old BIOS on your hard drive, it will restore to that and you can either try again or stay where you stopped if you would rather not gamble. If you do not have it on the drive, you will need to create a Recovery USB for the laptop to flash from. If you need a visual guide, refer to this video. Additional text instructions can be found here.
"SSD upgrade gone strangely, running Mojave OS dummy needs help!"에 답변Did you replace the HD cable? They go bad on these regularly and tend to show when an SSD is installed. It sounds like you didn’t change it and got burned. Refer to this guide to change the cable and this answer to patch it to prevent a future failure: Will Crucial MX500 2TB 3D CT2000MX500SSD1 SSD work in my Mid-2012 MBP?
"Can I use thermal pads as spacer for a 7mm SSD in a 9.5mm HDD caddy?"에 답변You shouldn’t need it with how Asus mounts the hard drive in these, since the connector is near the top of the hard drive caddy. I have an X53E that needs a lot of work I keep for parts so I’m familiar with the design. The X53E is really the K53E without a GPU on a 2nd gen Core platform vs the 3rd generation (which is what yours uses), so the machines are nearly identical. It looks like the only physical changes are the palmrest, system color and the addition of a PCH (not found on the K/X53E). Try installing it WITHOUT the adapter and see - more then likely it’ll work since the K55a bay looks very similar to the K/X53E. I will be very surprised if you do need it with how the drive mount is configured. It won’t hurt to have it, but you probably don’t *need* it like some laptops are known to. If the SATA connector was bottom soldered like the Toshiba laptops, you would.
"Is it my SSD or hard drive cable?"에 답변99% of the time it’s that HD cable; the 1% is a truly failed drive. Changing it cures the problem nearly 100% of the time on these. Refer to this guide for the part and this question for the patch points: Will Crucial MX500 2TB 3D CT2000MX500SSD1 SSD work in my Mid-2012 MBP?. DO NOT install it raw; that’s what ruins them. Did you upgrade to an SSD without upgrading the cable too? If you did, you found out why the advice towards people getting SSDs is to change the cable while they’re in the machine. Some of the Mid ‘12 machines got thin SATA II cables from the 2011 Pro, whilt others got a wider SATA II cable from when Apple revised it a 2nd time. Since there are 3 known revisions and 2 bad revions (one of which is hard to tell apart), it’s usually better to change the cable and know you have the current part in the system UNLESS THE SELLER HAS DONE IT.
"Spilled tea on my MacBook, should I replace battery?"에 답변Batteries do not like liquid. Change it out when you clean the board so you know there won’t be any battery problems. It already looks like the BMS is corroded too.
"Can this be repaired SIM card circuitry"에 답변For most people, it’s not the end of the world outside of hurting the resale value. For example: I don’t want a WWAN card on most Lenovo laptops after it’s ~18 months old or it just has to come with the deal - that’s because many of them tend to use older network technologies that are close to death, especially pre XX40 models. The cards are whitelisted, so I can’t decide that the cards sanctioned by Lenovo are too old to bother with, but I can buy any card I like as I can with a Dell Latitude. It’s generally not something that’s cared for after it gets to be too old. In this laptop, the current card the US models use is the Sierra Wireless EM7355 (FRU: 04W3801). It’s an LTE card (which is good) and outside of regional issues one card is used with these machines so it’s nowhere near as bad, but even then it’s not something people always care about - especially if you take my attitude and don’t care if it comes with one, but if it doesn’t NBD. In the past, it was done with a few specific cards and after...
"My SD card won't lock. Help?"에 답변The spring mechanism on the SD card slot broke. Canon solders it onto the primary PCB in the point and shoot series, so you need to repair the board or replace the board. Board replacement has this habit of costing about as much as a newer used camera that’s going to be better then what you have, so try and get it repaired if you want to keep the camera.
"Is this at all compatible with DD-WRT?"에 답변Ubee is usually ISP grade - they take precautions around 3rd party firmware like DD-WRT. On top of that, the big ISPs like Verizon take extra precautions like restricting specific parts like the MoCA jack (used for internet and cable) to the ISP firmware so even if you got DD-WRT on your MI424WR 802.11 a/b/g/n EOL (Actiontec), it’s crippled because the MoCA jack is nonfunctional. The Greenwave 802.11ac (FiOS-G1100) has yet to see DD-WRT support and will likely come with the same MoCA stipulation if it can even be done. Later MI424WR’s like the Rev.I were more of a pain then the early Rev.A-D ones. Rev.E-H was marginally worse then the Rev.I version (red plastic band). Get a 3rd party router you like that’s hackable WITHOUT an integrated modem (Must have eMTA if you have a landline) - it’s a much friendlier solution to change firmware on.
