Hi there, i'm Qndrez, or Q.

My knowledge leans more toward software than hardware, but i'm looking forward to learning lots in both categories.

 

See you around :)

Hello guys, 

 

I recently signed up on T|I to learn more about the fascinating mods out there for notebooks. I have a G46vw, had for a year and 9 months. works fine, bought used with a lost keyboard key/button. I came to this forum when i saw a post on Google search about a mod for the G46vw because MSI Afterburner would not unlock the fan settings and i was hoping this would do the trick and unlock some hidden features. I never knew there was such works on the web before. I'm also thinking about getting this baby cleaned and trying to add a dedicated eGPU and make this last a bit longer. I'm looking forward to learning about the awesome knowledge the community contributes to this forum and ways to improve old technology and make that old notebook into something worth still using with some included mods. 


Thanks, Lime.

hey guys,

thanks for having this great forum where you dont ban people.

i was directed here due to the Tech Inferno Fan ban issue and am showing my support by making this my new home :) and i deleted my 2 threads that i started regarding upgrading an hp probook 4330s to an i7 quad.

ill repost here. cheers!

ryan

 

Hi,

Did you succeed upgrading HP Probook 4330s to i7 quadcore? Please share the cpu model number. I was asking the same quetion on other forums, and someone said that an upgrade to i7 QM worked, but for some reason the CPU performance is restricted. Did you experience any such problem?

Hey everyone!

 

I'm a computer science student and have been lurking TI for a few years for a taste of hardware.  Finally signed up for an account.

And @Trondyne you can't DL files until you've been a member for a week and have 5 quality posts (you probably got a new user message with some useful information).

Hello everyone,

 

I'm about a week late on my introduction. But I found this site when searching about white listed WiFi cards and found out that there is a lot of really good information here.

 

So just call me DJ and just want to thank all the different users who help with modifications.

Yes, I found out about that wonderful policy....  

 

So I have to find a reason to post a few more times....  Sounds totally reasonable to me... :/

 

I particularly like how after 2 posts it says I have zero... Very nice.

Found this while googling for mods for my Asus G751JY.

 

I see you have a nice forum here. Although I'm a software developer by profession, I like to tinker with hardware as well (including some embedded stuff, such as tablets and routers).

Been registered here a while it seems but never had the chance to check the place out fully until today...

 

This place is pretty cool, I was deep into the Reflow and Reball scene of all BGA chips until around 6 months ago when I got bored of it, I know quite a bit o the subject and have helped may people start-up and repair boards over the years on other forums.

 

The software side has always intrigued me as a failed student of programming, if you guys have any questions about reballs or reflows hit me up.

Hey @drunkenninajwelcome to the community and I think @Khenglish @Mr. Fox and @johnksss would definitely be happy to have another hardware enthusiast on board that can help w/projects they come up with. Khenglish as you noticed is embarking on core swaps so if you have any tips that could assist him, definitely get in touch here on the forums.

More than happy to help out, I have a lot of tricks I used to do when repairing board traces and reseating BGA tips.

 

I'm still the 2nd highest poster over at BGA Mods on 1,636 posts, wrote quite a few guides there as well before stepping down as a Mod to try new things.

 

Thanks for the warm welcome by the way!!!!

Brian be careful when telling professional BGA people what I do... they tend to cringe at my toaster oven use and proceed to vomit.

 

A toaster oven works more than never though. Using the thermocouple to tell me when I need to crack the door open gives me better temperature regulation than any bga station under $1k.

Chill man, I'm not here to judge, and your right, you work with what you have to hand and hope for the best. I started out as a hobbyist like most people in that particular field and only bought equipment when the profits made it viable, it looks like you have done a really great job with the tools available to you. Glad you read up on some stuff.

 

Any rework station is better than none; certainly for motherboard work to isolate the heat and not hit reflow temps on every BGA on the board especially the tiny RAM chips, all the same, if I'm not wanted here I can go straight through the same door I came in from. Why you so Salty?

 

Again though looks like you did a good job with the tools to hand, pads looked intact and flush to the board, Reball looked fine also, it has a decent/good chance of success.
