My Problem

Easy to do and very inexpensive way to get computer working

My Fix

Very well for a novice at this type of repair.

Great instructions. Could have used info on material to use in replacing the heat sensor to the HD. I used a silicon paste, but wasn't sure this was the right answer. Seems to work fine.

My Advice

For the HD heat sensor cable, I would recommend taking it off at the mother board. i damaged the connector at the HD end (one pin came loose in connector) and had to carefully replace it. Mother board cable connector is much more robust.
