I am a Marine Corps Veteran that served in OIF/OEF from 2002 to 2007 working as a flight line mechanic on H-1 Utility and Attack Helicopters.
I started working for StandardAero as an Engine Mechanic and Quality Inspector at the end of 2007. Then while still working with StandardAero, I started my own computer and electronics repair shop in 2012.
At Wingman's Technology Services, we specialize in computer repairs, mobile device modifications and unlocks, and building custom Gaming and Graphics Design PCs. We also do home and small business network configurations including LAN/Wi-Fi installations, and storage servers. Recently we have branched out to start building custom Server Units and Custom RAID/Server Storage Arrays.
It all started in 1994 when my parents bought our first home computer. I had always been the type of kid that would take everything in the house apart just to see how it worked and then put it back together. With this first computer, it was no different. By the time I was 13, I had already taught myself what the different components in the computer were, and what they were for. I learned how to extract the code from games and modify it to create custom characters and other things within the game. I had also started learning the basics of the internet and networking, and was able to access parts of the schools networks that had games, presumably installed by a teacher to play during their free period, such as Wolfenstein and showed my friends how to access these games also. I, to this day, have continued to try and learn everything I can about computers, and other electronics and all the technology behind out everyday lives. To me, a day that I haven't learned something is a wasted day. Here in the recent years I have taught my self HTML and building webpages, and the basics to C/C++. Recently I have gotten into learning, in depth, networks and servers including constructing them, securing them, and testing them.
I have taken what was a life long hobby and turned it into a side gig to make cash to be able to fund my habit of building custom computers for myself, family, and friends, and also building small robots with my nephews. I have an office full of computer parts, and small electronics such as PCB solder boards, capacitors, resistors, LEDs, plugs and switches, Solar Panels, and just about every other small part needed to assemble just about any little gadget I can think of. I also have a lot of sheet metal supplies that I use to create my own custom cases for PCs, and Server Storage Arrays.

Install this on your PC, and use it to create a backup of your data on the phone.
Answer to "Which type of adhesive tape for front display?"The new screen should already have the adhesive applied to it. If not, then you will need 3M 300LSE Double Sided Adhesive. You can buy it by the roll which comes in different widths from 1mm up to 12mm here is a link to some http://www.ebay.com/itm/261807573229?_tr.... Or you can buy a sheet of it that comes in many sizes also, here is a 4"x8" sheet http://www.ebay.com/itm/3M-300LSE-Double-Sided-SUPER-STICKY-HEAVY-DUTY-SHEET-OF-ADHESIVE-TAPE/230983102051?_trksid=p2047675.c1000.... You can also search for sheets that are specifically cut for your device.
Answer to "contactlist was deleted by mistake"If you store your contacts on your SIM, there is no way to retrieve them unless by chance your carrier has a SIM Backup service and you have back them up to it. If you keep them on your phone, than more than likely they are added to the Gmail (or whatever email you use) account that you use to get apps from the Play Store. Try resyncing your contacts from the "Accounts & Sync" menu in Settings. If they haven't been being added to your Gmail, and have been being stored on your phone, than the only way to retrieve them is via a backup of your contacts list. A lot of Androids will sync backups OTA (Over the Air) when you are connected to WiFi. If one of these methods don't work, than the only thing you have left is to try and recover them with 3rd Party Recovery Software. If you have to recover them, don't write anything else to the disk, including taking photos, installing/updating apps, and MMS Messages (If Possible, We have no control over what our friends send us), as all of these will write to the disk...
Answer to "Do I REALLY need the T8 Torx Security Bit Screwdriver?"No a regular T8 won't work, unless you bust the center pin out in the TT8 screw. A better way to do it is to get a small flat head, one that will fit across two points. To clarify, there are 6 points in the Torx star. Lets number them 1,2,3...and so on clockwise. You want the flat head to fit between points 1 and 3, sliding just above the tamper pin. Without a TT8 bit, this is the best way to remove the screws without messing them up. ***EDIT*** (1) Sorry didn't realize it was a 2010, so Dan is right you don't need a TT8 for that one, just the newer models.
Answer to "Why doesn't my external hard drive appear in my MacBook Pro?"Go to Disk Utility and verify the drive shows up in the left hand column. If it does, it should show the size and manufacture of the drive on one line, than indented below it should show the logical name. Click on the drive and select repair. It will scan the disk and attempt to repair it if errors are found. If they are found, run repair one more time to see if any errors remain. If so, the disk may be going bad.
Answer to "Why is there no display on screen, only backlight?"Hi Dalia, You can try to reset the T100. A lot of times after a screen replacement, the BIOS has to be reset in order to register the new screen. To do this, hold the volume up button and the power button until the screen flashes. This should reset the T100 and it should boot up after that. Sorry if this answer is too late for you.
Answer to "Changing micro usb charging port or whole PCB?"Hi Jeremy, I order to replace the PCB for the Micro USB charge port you would have to replace the entire motherboard since the Micro USB and HDMI ports are directly connected to it. If you disassemble the T100 down to the motherboard though, you can look at the Micro USB port and determine if one of the 5 pins has broken the solder contact. This is the most common reason for this port to only work if you hold the cable in a particular position. If this is the case, it would be best to be extremely careful not to bridge the contacts and simply resolder the broken contact down. You could replace the port if you would prefer, but that would require you to desolder the 5 contacts to remove the old one, and then solder on the new one. If you plan to go that route, you can search on eBay for any Micro USB port that is meant to be mounted flat on the PCB. This is what you would need - eBay: Micro USB Charging Port Connector. If you wish to replace the entire motherboard it can range between $50-$100 USD,...
Answer to "Why is my Tablet screen not showing up or turning back on?"Hi Fiji, How did you have the T100 connected to the desktop? Do you mean that you had it plugged in via HDMI to the monitor, or with USB to the actual desktop? If it was with USB, than you won't be able to project it to the other screen. I am assuming though that you were using the HDMI output on the T100 and had it connected to the Desktop Monitor. First make sure that the cable is plugged in all the way, and that the monitor is on. When you select to project the the screen on the T100 to the desktop monitor, you may have to toggle the power button on the monitor it was in sleep mode. In order to get the display to return to the T100's screen hold down the Function (fn) key, and press F8 one time. This should set your T100 back to the default screen setting and it should show up on the tablet screen again. If you still can not get it to change back, then unplug the HDMI cable, and then hold down the Home Button (the one on the side under the volume button) and the Power Button for about 10 seconds. This...
Answer to "LCD Connection Apparatus has slight tear, repairable?"Hello Brandt, If you are talking about the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the motherboard, than I am sorry to tell you that the answer is no it is not repairable, but it is replaceable. You can search online for a replacement, I know there are a few on eBay. Just search for "Asus T100 LCD Flex Ribbon Cable" and the P/N is T100TA_MIPIDSI_FPC. They go for about $20-$30 USD. You could try to repair the one you have if you have a very fine electronic trace marker, but I wouldn't chance it. If you cross the traces and short them out, it will most likely mess up your LCD and Motherboard.
