    Hi Eli:

    You provide good information on laptops and how you would tackle some of the repairs. I generally find the RAM and replacing the hard drive the easiest to do. One of the reasons why I like the large desk tops(towers) is that most everything is so much easier to do. Parts are much larger and don’t have to worry so much about screws and other plug-ins. On laptops, you do have to worry about parts fitting. The difficulty is if you have to change the motherboard or screen, then that is the problem and you just should buy another laptop. Companies just don’t make it easy to repair them. I do find that just to add another monitor or keyboard, is to make it much easier and cheaper. You would be surprised is you go to a pawn shop or even a thrift store, you can buy add-on’s relatively cheap and don’t have to worry if the parts fit. Everything is external and works. Most of these places now, even provide a certain time limit and if something does not work, they will take it back for exchange for something else, but no cash back. I have purchased computers that way, dirt cheap and never had a problem and never had to worry how expensive a repair is. I know not everybody can do this. I have a laptop and now all the added things that I have connected to it, it looks like a desktop with external monitors and keyboard and performs just fine. The best thing is that you can always up the memory and if you don’t want win 10, why not put in Linux which is much faster and many programs are free. As a matter of fact, the desktop is coming back again as I see it in stores. This is just a comment I wanted to post.

    Only if the current laptops in 2020 were built so easy to take apart by removing screws.

    If you could remove the keyboard, and it has only soft drink damage, why couldn't you just wash it, dry it and put it back?

    First let me say – another GREAT video – Love your work and have seen almost every video you have done that is public.

    There are 2 things i would add to this one

    1- after removing power cord and battery – push and hold the power button 9 seconds (like a hard shut down) – This helps discharge and remaining electrical current still stored in the device and helps prevent static discharge and accidental shock discharge

    2- most modern laptops have a 2nd RAM card built inside the laptop UNDER the keyboard – simply follow the steps to remove the keyboard and the RAM slot is (most cases) even with – or – in proximity to the main RAM accessible from below the laptop – visit the manufacturer website and can get schematics and details of the device BEFORE disassembling the device.
