    Youll be fine, just wash it off your finger and be careful next time you handle stuff like old thermal paste.

    I would get all of the data off ASAP. Then reformat to see if the sectors would fix themselves or if it's physical damage.

    Hey, $350 for a decent productivity laptop? I'd go for it, if you actually think you would use it  if not, don't do it, or check prices on Craigslist or EBay if you think you can sell it again for higher than $350.

    kgorringe got a reaction from redyjr4 in Building A PC Using Server Pieces   
    Well if you're going to take this route, you will need to cut things off and do some DIY work, that's why its such a cheap way of building a PC.
     
    For mobo: find a mobo with DDR2 or DDR3 RAM slots, your compatible CPU Socket, and atleast 2 expansion slots.
     
    For RAM: just any compatible ECC RAM would work.
     
    If you want a case... you're on your own. You can build your own!
     
    Happy Building!

    Nope. The CPU is a LGA 1151 Socket,
     
    And the mobo is a LGA 1150 Socket.
     
    Either downgrade the CPU or upgrade the Mobo

    The teardown is probably similar to Beats: just smash them on the ground and buy some real cans. 
     
    In all seriousness, I can't find any teardown videos or guides. Try ye' oldie screwdriver pry?

    kgorringe reacted to iamdarkyoshi in [Review] LG 24GM77 144hz Monitor   
    Today I will be reviewing the monitors I bought off of Massdrop. I bought three of them. I will use @Dan Castellaneta's favorite patented 52 scoring system.
    Color: 29.5/52
     
    The color out of the box is okay for my fairly low standards. I do not do editing on these monitors, so color reproduction is not a critical attribute. They are TN panels which is to be expected for their fairly low cost. I used my usual settings I use on monitors which is each color (R/G/B) set to 100, contrast set to 50, brightness (backlighting) to 100, and any image enhancers turned OFF.
     
    Image quality: 43.3/52
     
    They are 1080p panels, nothing super special by today's means. But that OH SO SMOOTH 144HZ IS AMAZING. The black levels are pretty bad, which is to be expected with cheap TN panels. I do notice some scrolling lines on the screen, probably need to tweak settings.
     
    Viewing angles: 25/52
     
    They have these nice stands to go into portrait mode, but the damn viewing angles make it horrible to look at. They are fine when used landscape though.
     
    Build quality and design: 3.14/52
     
    I could go on and on. But here are my main complaints: Glossy plastic. Just WHY??? The nonremovable ballsack hanging off of each monitor looks dumb. It makes the landscape mode even more useless, as you cannot make each monitor line up with the next. The bezels are quite thick, once I am satisfied that they are going to work properly and not take a shit all over the place, I will debezel them. I had a dead pixel on one of them, which explains my member title. Thanks Massdrop for not only offering to replace it for me, but giving me a prepaid shipping label! 
     
    Stands: 48/52
     
    I like the stands. They can tilt, swivel, adjust height, and rotate in place. They are a LITTLE wobbly compared to my old Syncmaster 204B monitors (best damn TN panel I have ever used) but they certainly beat the pants off of many acer monitors. Why are they missing 4 points? For using glossy plastic...
     
    I/O: 52/52
     
    Perfectly nailed it here. Two HDMI, a useless VGA for troubleshooting old PCs, dual link DVI, Displayport, and it has a USB 3.0 hub and headphones output. All cables are included except for Displayport, and I had a Displayport cable sitting around, so I just used that for the third monitor that I sent back for replacement.
     
    Interface: 30/52
     
    The interface is pretty nice. I have absolutely NO USE for the 5 buttons on the front though! Underneath those buttons is a joystick with middle click to select. I can very quickly navigate the menus from this joystick alone. I would have liked to see the joystick and buttons on the back or front instead, so they are not in the way.
     
    Result? 29.1342857/52
     
    The overall score is a little low, and I blame glossy plastic or donald trump. I do like them though, they are an improvement over my previous monitor. They will most likely be back up on massdrop for those who want one: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/lg-24gm77-b-full-hd-led-gaming-monitor

    I wouldn't try to upgrade a laptop CPU. They CPU is probably wired to the motherboard.
