Re: Laptop repair mission
Well, the laptop is now working, I haven't replaced the motherboard, but I did try the oven trick, I stripped every component from the board, put it in the oven on gas mark 5 for 5 minutes (eat your heart out Gordon Ramsey!). Put it back in and it works, one thing I am worried about is I didn't replace the thermal compound as I didn't have any, from the looks of it it was a pad, it seems to be working okay at the minute, but I shall monitor the temps for a while, it is however I believe riddled with Malware, Chrome wouldn't let me browse and Firefox made me add an exception for every single page I went on, so far Malware bytes has found 10 infections so I'll see how it runs after. Thanks everyone in computer forums for your time on this, I don't know how long it will work for, but since the temporary repair was free I'm going to return it to the owner, thanks again everyone.
