  • Answer to: SSDm Sata install tutorial

    There's a daughter board that comes off the main board. Check the Vostro 3560 OM, here. You can see it on Pg. 37. If it does not have the mSATA slot underneath it (opposite of the WLAN card), then you'll need Dell P/N 82PYC. (here's a cheat I know of. If you look in the OM on PG. 23, the last illustration on the page, if you take the bottom cover off the laptop, directly underneath the battery latch, there's a small window in the plastic. If you look in it, you can see the edge of the mSATA socket. If you don't see the socket, you won't have hte correct daughter board, and will need the Dell P/N listed above to add mSATA.

  • iPod Touch 4th Generation Front Panel Replacement

  • When installing the new panel, it can be quite hard to get the connector onto the board with only one set of hands. You will need to use a second person to hold the iPod and the new front panel in such a way that the connector lines up, then use your tweezers to press the new connector in place. It's pretty much impossible to do with only one person...

  • It's best when replacing the front panel to power on the iPad once the new panel is connected to test the digitizer before exposing and laying down the glue for the front panel!
