  • Transform a laptop into a stunning desktop media PC


    In this video I'll be showing you how to build a beautiful desktop PC out of an old damaged laptop for peanuts (aka, not much money). This is a great way to re-use old hardware for cheap, and it's a fantastic creative outlet. I used veneer to make it look like an art piece, but I reckon that leather would look nice if done right, as would vinyl wrap. Go wild guys!

    I Paid $2500 for 5 BROKEN High End Laptops - But Can I Fix Them?! There are two Razor laptops, an HP Spectre, an Acer Nitro 5, and a Lenovo Yoga. I found a variety of problems including software issues, charging issues, keyboard issues, and one of them was crazy dirty inside. I don't have a ton of experience repairing laptops so it's fun to challenge myself to figure them out.

  • You Can Make a Tablet from Your Old Laptop , See How


    So you’ve bought yourself a new computer and suddenly there’s no place for your old one in your home. You can always sell it, of course, but there are much more interesting ways to use your old laptop or desktop PC. Turn it into a home server. Instead of keeping all your files on your new computer’s hard drive, you can set up a home group and connect all your devices in a single network.

    Then, make your old computer’s drive shared with the whole network, and everyone in your house will be able to view and use files stored on it, as well as share their own. This comes in especially handy when someone in your family has a device with low space — this way, they can always keep new files in the shared storage. You also can make a surveillance camera out of it. It might look weird, though, if you just hang your laptop outside the door, so you may want to rewire it a little bit and extract the camera first. So, not sure what to do with your old laptop? Here are some cool ways to reuse it.


    Turn it into a home server 0:01
    Make a surveillance camera out of it 0:45

    For a computer that wont start, shuts off or freezes during start-up, start your troubleshooting process here! If these tests do not identify the issue, then troubleshoot deeper into the computer. Move on to the BIOS Reset as seen here;
    If that fails, then test your Power Adapter as seen here;
    and then your Power Jack as seen here;
    If all those tests do not reveal the issue, then your most likely looking at a Motherboard replacement.

    Q: What if my battery is build in?
    A: For a computer with an internal battery, try this video first;

    Q: My computer is overheating and wont turn on. Will this help?
    A: So to troubleshoot a computer that wont turn on, I would usually say to start with this video. However, an overheating computer can damage multiple components, make multiple components act in weird ways, and therefor makes it very hard to troubleshoot which components are the cause of the computer not turning on. You should try to address the overheating first. You can see that process here;

    ???? The Laptop model is HP Probook 6450B, upgrades from i3 370M to i5 450M, from 2GB RAM to 8GB RAM, SSD instead HDD.

    ???? The eGPU is made from: EXP GDC v8.5, express card, GTX960 4GB, 550w PCU and simple aluminum case.

    ???? To setup the eGPU i need to do all manually. Searching and installing drivers, making some changes in drivers and i used DIY eGPU software ( making custom dsdt and few additional settings )

    ???? Games in this video: Serious Sam 3 BFE and Metro: Exodus

    ???? The performances with eGPU are good ( I mean on 1st gen ), but personally I Will NOT recommend the eGPU for 1st Gen Intel CPU's. Setup may be very complicated with some models and the FPS is not very stable.

    ????✔️ Recommended 2nd gen Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 CPU's OR NEWER.
    ????✔️Before getting the EXP GDC check your laptop compatibility.

    How to Fix a Dead Laptop Battery

    how to restore some life to a laptop computer battery. While you can do a few things to boost your battery's lifespan, computer batteries must be replaced every 2 to 3 years for optimal performance. Also keep in mind that if your laptop has a lithium battery, freezing it or repeatedly discharging it completely will damage the battery further.

    If your battery isn't charging, check the AC adapter and the charging port. These tend to wear out more quickly than the battery itself.
    Laptop batteries do eventually die. If these methods don't work, you'll need to purchase a new battery. Batteries can be purchased both online and in tech stores such as Best Buy.
    Try not to let the battery completely drain during regular use. If you see the “low battery warning,” plug it in to increase long-term battery life.
    Lithium battery packs can enter a Sleep mode if you leave them completely discharged for too long. If this happens, you can usually take your battery pack into a tech department in order to have a professional wake up the battery with a power supply.
    If your laptop battery is dead and you aren't able to get a new one right away, plug your laptop in and use it like a desktop until you can replace the battery.

    This tutorial shows how to set up an external graphics card on a laptop without taking it apart and without removing your Wi-Fi card from the mini PCI-E slot, also without using thunderbolt 3 port. This upgrade is usually for gaming purposes, graphics design, or movie making.
    This approach addresses three of the common challenges of using desktop graphics cards externally with laptops.

    1. First is odd of having to give up your wi-fi card mini PCIe slot in order to attach the eGPU cable.
    2. Second is the issue of size, that’s the portability of the components required to implement this scheme, more specifically, the power adapters.
    3. The third is, of course, the issue of cost.
    Here are the components needed:

    - An EXP GDC 8.0 External laptop GPU dock (Expresscard Version):
    - DELL D220P-01 power supply :
    - Or 450 Watt Desktop PC PSU Unit (if portability is not an issue)
    - A 6-pin graphics card cable (if you’re using a bigger graphics card that requires additional power and has the 6-Pin port somewhere around it)
    - Zotac GTX 750Ti

  • How To Recover Files From A Dead Laptop | How To Recover Files From Broken Laptop


    It is really easy to recover files from a broken laptop or desktop. The easiest way to recover files from a broken laptop is to remove the hard drive from the defective computer, plug it into a different computer and many times the computer will allow to boot into that hard drive from the broken laptop. If it doesn't, it should in most cases allow for the retrieved hard drive to be detected at least, and hence you can retrieve your data easily in many cases.

  • I turned an old laptop into a power efficient FreeNAS server using hot glue and duct tape!


    A video about my laptop powered 6 hard drive FreeNAS server! It only consumes 56 watts idle, and performs fairly well on a gigabit network.

    Power Consumption:

    At the end of the video you can see a picture of the power meter with system idle at around 54 watts. I have worked a lot on power management and have come up with the following figures. Not sure if this qualifies as ultra power efficient as I mentioned in the video, but the numbers hold up against many off the shelf models!

    Read/Write: 65-70 watts
    Idle Disks spinning: 54 watts
    HDD Standby: 18.1 watts
    (Using powerd - and C2 power state)

    System Specs / Hardware:

    Lenovo T520 Motherboard

    Lenovo T520 Docking Station
    Intel i7 - 2640m mobile cpu
    8 GB Ram
    2x 16GB kingston flash drives for boot (configured in raid 1)
    6x 2TB Western Digital Red NAS Drives
    Old 3u server chassis

    I tried the latest version of FreeNAS (11.2) but I was not able to get the system to run correctly due to terrible performance booting from USB. After some research, I discovered I am not the only one with these problems, so I went with 11.1 which works fine.

    Performance Results:

    Copying large files (30MB +) I was able to maintain about 100MB/s write, and 105-110 MB/S read.
    Smaller files such as pictures (not tested in video) was about 40-60 MB/s write, and slightly faster reading.

  • DIY Making A Monitor Out of an OLD LAPTOP Display | Using Laptops Display as a Monitor

I used pieces of MDF wood for the frame and used double sided tape to fix the components onto the MDF, I also used vinyl wraps to cover the MDF so that It does not look ugly, for more watch the full video.

  • How I turned my old laptop into a Chromebook


    In this video, I show how I turned my Old Laptop into a Useful Chromebook and you do it too
    so a few weeks back I upgraded from this laptop to a 13 inch MacBook pro and I wanna put my old laptop into good use so in this video I turn my old laptop into a useable Chromebook
    now you may have this question why do you wanna run chrome os on an old laptop there are 2 reasons for it
    The first one is that I want a laptop in which I can manage all my light tasks in such as browsing, scripting, and watching Youtube Videos just like how you would use an iPad except that this has a keyboard and a mouse
    it's not a glorified tablet
    and the second reason is that windows is pretty buggy on this laptop, now I can do all the tasks I listed above in windows and do even more
    but then I would always be stuck with random bugs crashes and many more
    the thing is for what I do with this laptop I don't need windows or even Linux so I would be self-sufficient with chrome os
    and also as a side benefit, you can even run Android Apps in chrome os if that's something you are interested in
