Successful Fan Replacement

by brownsteinmatt

My Problem

Damaged and noisy fan.

My Fix

It took about 45 minutes. The guide was very helpful. It was kind of hard taking the keyboard on and off, but I am pretty dumb when it comes to computers. I damaged a piece putting the keyboard back on, but it doesn't affect the performance of my computer. After replacing the fan, it works perfectly now. My keyboard cover is just a little loose in areas.

My Advice

Be careful taking the keyboard on and off. Keep your screws organized.
