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.

"Poor 2011 MacBook Pro battery life after replacing battery"에 답변The 2011 is bordering on obsolete because it’s a Metal 1 system :(. This doesn’t mean much in terms of general usage like 90% of the people buying them do, but it means things like batteries aren’t made as well as they used to be. It will probably take 2-3 tries to find a good one for this computer. I wouldn’t condemn a 2011 because of the Metal 1 problem (I’m not going to condemn mine either), BUT it means those of us with them have our hands tied and we need to hold out for 2019/20 Macs with actual modularity or seriously look at 2013/14/15 Retinas to replace these - which use soldered RAM but have a nonstandard (but modular) SSD.
"Adhesive choice for edges of screen after replacement?"에 답변Low 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. 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.
"Spilled tea on right side of keyboard."에 답변Laptop 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...
"My chromebook has an admin on it, how do I remove it?"에 답변The 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.
"How to attach Samsung Galaxy S9 Front Glass"에 답변Are 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.
"Adding a HDD to my laptop."에 답변Is 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.
"How to retain water resistency after performing backglass replacement?"에 답변It’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.
"How to find the most repairable laptops?"에 답변If you have the money, premium business class laptops like the HP Elite, HP Z (high end workstation) or Latitude E6/7000 series and the Precision series are designed to be worked on. Some of these have the issues consumer models have like soldered RAM, but there isn’t any stupidity like soldered SSDs to worry about outside of glorified consumer models like the ProBook or Vostro. If you want to be sure, get a premium business notebook and check the service manual to see. These laptops have almost everything someone looking for a repairable laptop would want - easy component access and high modularity since these tend to be serviced by businesses and bad design like spot welded keyboards isn’t tolerated - but it doesn’t stop them from trying so you need to be careful even though it’s not as commonplace. The other thing is Dell is known to have keyboard issues on their laptops that don’t exist on other brands in terms of frequency of failure - but it depends on which model you get that determines how bad it...
"How can my wii work in Europe?"에 답변The big issue isn’t analog 50/60Hz incompatibilities - it’s what region the Wii you have is locked to more so then anything else. If you want to make it region free, a modchip that attaches to the optical drive (or a softmod) is required. I am not going to link to anything that can be used to do it here (unless it’s absolutely necessary) but it isn’t hard to find a 100% compatible modchip or a known good softmod. Check eBay for a physical modchip if you want to leave the software stock and not risk it there. My only recommendation is to find a GC compatible Wii if you’re going to go through the trouble of modifying it at the physical level and pick up some component cables. I wish I could link some parts, but in the US modchips are legally grey at best - they aren’t 100% illegal per say BUT if you use it for piracy then you’re breaking the law. Beyond that, you will just need to see. Since the region locking is more of a defeatable software design flaw, I’m not as concerned about that. What I AM concerned...
"Is my graphics card dead? If not, what could this be?"에 답변Ah, yes. The 8600M machines which were recalled due to GPU issues. I’m surprised yours lasted as long as it did. They all seemed to die off within 1-2 years, so you got one of the few that actually managed to last. Yours isn’t showing the telltale signs of hardware trouble (distortion or black screen), so it may be something else. Is the version of MacOS installed patched or officially supported? It may be there’s an issue with patching it on your specific board, so you may need to revert back to an officially supported OS to see. If that doesn’t fix it, the second thing that I would check is the RAM. It uses DDR2, so it may be expensive to test the RAM; consider the potential cost before doing it, especially if you have 2 sticks and can make it a $0 test. However, these generally ship with 1-2GB (1X 1GB or 2X 1GB) and factory 4GB systems are not very common. If neither of these fixes it, it’s usually the GPU without exception.
