    Fixing Laptops

    Does anyone know a good resource on fixing laptops? I have one with a busted/loose video card. Its gonna be too hard to pay for it to be fixed so I want to do it myself

    I believe you start by removing the keyboard, which gives you access to the things beneath it... but I have no idea what it will entail, and I don't have a laptop at which to look.

    dont take it apart yourself, laptops are built by the rarer spotted 1 cm pixies of finland with fingers just 0.5mm in length and laptop fixings to match. I opened my laptop to change the hard disk, they dont come aprt or go back together again without specialist tools, i broke my laptop this way - be careful.

    i actually fixed my own keyboard(laptop).
    Acer was thinking of charging 160bucks or so an hour to fix my keyboard. Just cant afford it.

    Things u have to keep in mind, be gentle and dont force it

    hope it helps.
