My Old Laptop

Click on image to enlarge...
I just upgraded the components in my old laptop. It has no MXM slot, so there is nothing I can do about the poor graphics without the proper tools to replace the graphics processor. I replaced the heat pad on the graphics processor with a copper bridge to transfer heat through both heat sinks connected to the cooling fan. I used Masscool G751 thermal grease. I watched all videos on YouTube showing how to take the computer apart and put it back together. I thought the French technicians approach of simply putting each screw back were it came from, seemed less stressful to me. So, that is what I did.
