    Repair tiny chip on phone screen

    Hi Joveice, I did phone repair professionally for 10 months. It isn't possible to fill in phone screen cracks like they do with car windshields. However, it is relatively easy to replace a phone screen yourself if you're willing to put in the effort. There are a few things you will need: Parts: Personally, Mobile Defenders is my go-to for sourcing mobile parts. They have reasonable prices and fast shipping. When searching for parts, you'll want to make sure you are buying an "LCD and Digitizer Frame Assembly" instead of JUST the glass. The reason for this is that the glass and the screen components come from the factory fused together. When your screen cracks you might think you could replace only the glass, but it is EXTREMELY difficult to separate the glass from the screen underneath. Please reply to this with your phone make/model and I can help you find the correct part Tools: So you're gonna need some tools, and tools cost money. BUT you are still saving money if you buy your own tools in the long run vs. paying a professional to fix your phone. I'd recommend the Essential Electronics toolkit from iFixit. Link here. It's only $20, and you can use it for more things than phone repair. How to: Now that you've got a screen and some tools, you're probably wondering "Now what?". It's pretty simple actually. iFixit has TONS of guides on how to fix almost any part of mobile phones. When following the guide keep these things in mind: Go slow Double check everything Keep track of any removable piece. Screws, plates, connectors, etc... Take lots of pictures! Muffinator

    Need specific Monitor

    Doesn't look like PCPP lists the weight of the monitors.

    Need specific Monitor

    Hi all, I am in search of the lightest (weight-wise) monitors I can find. Ideally these are to be 21.5" to 23" monitors and have to be vesa compatible. Price is not an issue. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Apple leaks new MacBook Pro with touch strip

    People asked for a touchscreen and they gave us this.

    Apple leaks new MacBook Pro with touch strip

    Sorry for my bad wording, I knew it could do notifications, although i'm not sure if they will add "buttons" to the strip that change based on the application being used.
  7. I'm definitely excited to hear Apple's full event on Thursday. Would be cool if you could customize what the screen does based on the application you are using. For example: Custom Macro keys or maybe even commonly used shortcuts like copy and paste, undo and redo etc. EDIT: Wow, I know it can do buttons and notifs and the like. But will the user be able to customize those buttons, and add more, etc. My bad Still not what we meant when asking for a touchscreen on a Mac.

    The "Dragon" build

    Im using the ones that came with my old h100.. They aren't good by any means but they are better than the raijintek ones.

    The "Dragon" build

    Not including the things I upgraded from. But as everything sits, yeah. It's a vicious cycle haha I've got a mild 4.2Ghz overclock. And yes, I love the cooler. It looks amazing and performs well. Although I advise not using the fans it comes with.. They are kinda janky.

    The "Dragon" build

    It's funny because I have actually blown a lot more than the Partpicker shows.. haha My computer has been through many phases. I started out with a 760 in there and for the case I was rocking a CM Storm Scout 2. Then I upgraded the case to the Arc Midi R2. After that I bought an R9 290 off of ebay for $300 after the whole mining craze. I went from Intel stock cooler > Refurbed H100 > Raijintek Triton. I went from the Diablotek UL 575Watt PSU (TOTAL SKETCH) to the EVGA. For RAM I went from a 1x8gb low profile set up that came with my motherboard to the HyperX Fury Red 2x8gb. When I first built this computer back in June of 2013, there was a whole lot of compromises made. But as it stands right now I am really happy with what i've got. After two years of upgrading and compulsively buying random shit whenever their were crazy deals... I'm pretty proud of it. As for the plastidipping. Yeah i'm surprised the motherboard is still working after all of this time too. I actually sprayed the PCB of my old 760 and it looked rather nice too. (But I sold it on ebay to buy the 290)

    (US - Amazon) - Logitech G502 $50

    As a SMFC in CSGO.. This mouse is amazing. I bought mine refurbed and where the cable comes out of the mouse it's a little frayed. (The braiding) Coming from a laser mouse with inherent hardware acceleration, I highly recommend purchasing it, especially at this price. For those of you that care: DPI: 400 Sens: 1.57 JUST DO IT
