I am working on my grandfather's Compaq Armada 7800, it seemed simple enough, but the truth is, I don't want to re live the past 6 hours.
The Origional Problem was:
Monitor changed colour when tilted at different angles.
Hard drive was pretty dead.
The Origional Solution was:
Re connect a faulty wire, turn it on.
Throw it in the freezer, and order a 20gb.
i brought it down into the garage, and began taking out every bolt there, unclipping every clip, and eventually, laberously pulling off the monitor. The cables snapped like frayed string. I put it back together with a new Solution:
Replace all wires heading into the lcd screen, send to a repair shop.
less than $80 in my pocket
Get a pro to do it, neither of us know how the heck to pull the monitor apart, even in 3 mm of space!
These pics are after I rebuilt it in my bedroom - NO,THAT IS NOT MY HP!!!
