newly fix monitor place at the edge of table for testing

i been looking at aliexplress replacement parts for my gx501 and it's surprising that you can get pretty much everything on there for a decent price, you still need the heatsink and the speakers and screw and a few ods and ends but you can get almost the whole laptop in parts. and it's surprisingly low commitment to put together. i just did a repaste on mine and it took 20 mins? i think and that was with all the gross cooked on thermal paste from the 2 years i've had it. and it's pretty easy to put back together

Talk to my school they have square VGA monitors and keyboards from like 2000. The best keyboards are logitek K120s and the pc is Dell optiplex 3060. Spend some on new equipment...

Me: Maybe I should try to just fix my monitor instead of getting a brand new one...
"That's the part where if I accidentally bridge some of these contacts, because I'm pretty sure there are some pretty decent sized capacitors on the other side, I could die"
Me: ...nvm...

Gotta say I quite enjoy watching you guys just getting stuff to work out that you intend to use yourselves. Makes it a bit more interesting.

i turned an old imac into a monitor via a ebay circuit board - works a treat and my twin imac desk looks good, with one being a windows rig under the desk

Why do you always put things right on the edge of a counter or table? Have you learned nothing?

Wow I could replace a few screws also, if only you guys ACTUALLY WALKED US THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS, WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO DO THE SAME AND SAVE A COUPLE HUNDY...BUT IM SURE YALL NEEDED THE MONEY MUCH MORE THAN ANY OF US LINUS! #BITCHMADELTT

Does anybody have a clue how he actually obtained the panel details?...every time I search a model number to obtain the panel number I get 0 results...and panelook is the WORST SITE by way of user friendliness...what a sham of a helpful video, this was at best misleading and at worst a FUCKING BS LIE!

Cute. Love how easy it was to remove the rear cover from the monitor. Some of the ones I have to deal with are a real pain in the butt to disassemble.

I recently did this with a Gaming laptop. I bought a Lenova Bluray 14" Ideapad Y480 w/ 8gb DDR3 and 500GB SSD as "Parts" No O.S., 2nd hand from the Goodwill of San Francisco @ auction for $23.00 +13.00 shipping. Had a double line down the left side like someone left a pencil between the screen and keyboard and tried to close it. A new screen Cost me 46.00 from eBay. I installed windows 10 Pro. I get 45 fps in PUBG. I've looked it up it's a older model but still resales over 300.00 "Used" Great Steal!!! Love it, Now you got me looking for one (Ha ha) off ebay. grrrrr
