My laptop is dirty, as all of you know.
I decided to clean it, so I found a screwdriver which came with my mBot, so I can unscrew the screws and take off the cover.
I'm surprised that the main fan is still working.
I couldn't wait to take out the fan and give it a good clean, but: The bottom-left screw doesn't look good. Looks like its previous owner tried to unscrew this one but he ended up damaging it. :/
Well, I've had an interesting experience, lol.
I wonder what this is:
Lastly, I think that upgrading RAM here won't be that easy:
There are 2 RAM sticks in the laptop, 1GB each.
One has this yellow, translucent tape on one corner while the top one is completely removable. So, I should get a module of 3GB DDR2 RAM, which obviously doesn't exist anywhere in my country. I can, of course, buy a 2GB RAM module, but then my total memory would be 3GB.
Ah well, better something than nothing.
Also, I located the hard disk on my laptop. I don't have a picture of it right now, but it's not that necessary and I don't want to take my laptop apart while it's running. Actually, I might just do that. flips laptop
Alright, I got it: Don't bash me for doing this, I was very careful while doing that!
So yeah, I think I could get a 300GB laptop hard drive and replace the old one, couldn't I?
Now I'm wondering, how can I unscrew that damaged screw?
There's the rubber band method, but I don't have any rubber bands that are wide enough. There's the pliers method, but I wouldn't want my dad to know about this. Any suggestions? xd
