    Elitebook 8470P Upgrade Log

    Funny, that's the same CPU my T430 has. Just wish the mail service didn't loose my new CPU and say they "delivered" it
  2. That one looks a lot closer. I'll give it a shot as soon as I'm done tickling my LCD's refresh rate Or rather trying to Thanks!
  3. Ah, that would explain it. Sadly there's really nothing resembling comic sans that is monospaced...
  4. help this is important


  5. I actually use comic sans as my system font, however quite a lot of other fonts look weird in the terminal. But only in the terminal. Everything else is totally fine. As you can see, I'm running ZorinOS. Any idea on why such a beautiful and flawless font would render oddly in just the terminal? I'd really like my fonts to match the rest of the system
  6. Since I work at a PC repair shop and have quite an extensive knowledge on computer repair (mostly hardware) should I make a megaguide on here? I'd probably spend hours writing and formatting it

      Yes, I'd love to see it.

      might encourage me to do anything useful. I've wanted to make a tools/utils mega guide.

      I'm actually looking on how to repair a hard drive with seemingly bad sectors but it seems there's nothing I can do.

  7. I used to get daily calls about my "student loans" Went on for over a year before I actually did something about it
  8. Doesn't work for me. Only way I've gotten these assholes to leave is to waste their time. Answer their calls, press whatever number gets you to a person, then have some fun. Speak gibberish, use an angry indian accent, give them periods of silence, or just get creative. Play jellyfish jam across the phone. Or just swear at them >:D Don't hang up until they do. Once they hang up, you're golden. They will almost always stop calling and remove you from their list. My spam calls dropped from several a day to only one or two a month.
  9. My daily driver laptop has been moved over Main PC running LTSB. Screw updates.
  10. Best 150$ I've ever spent:

      @firelighter487 Yeah


      There's a real world example of the lower tier TN vs IPS image quality

      Now that's crazy. How easy is a display swap on a laptop? 

    4. iamdarkyoshi


      @FloRolf This one was pretty easy. However, laptops before intel 4th gen typically used the 40 pin LVDS display data protocol, and 4th gen and up typically used 30 pin eDP instead.


      Good LVDS screens are kinda rare, but good eDP screens are pretty common.


      Getting a 30 pin eDP screen into an LVDS laptop required a mod board that converted LVDS to eDP.


      Even with that it was quite easy.


      Another thing to look out for is how many data channels the screen needs (think dual link vs single link DVI) Some crap laptops have less of the wires fitted in the screen cable, requiring a cable upgrade if its even available to upgrade screen resolutions. 


      From what I've seen, pretty much any 30 pin eDP 1080p screen will work in an eDP laptop, and IPS displays are common and cheap

    Yeah it'd be something cheap just to get them up and running again until they can afford to waste money on another macbook lol

    Apparently setting an EFI password will prevent the nvram issue

    I've had lots of customers come into the repair shop with these damn things, I was not aware of this mod! I'm definitely going to offer this as a hotfix for them from now on. Thanks for the links!
