Taking apart Macs:
I have to say I love working on Macs.
Everything is so nice and neat inside
taped down in the correct spots and
screwed in all nice and neat.

Power Book G4 had fan problems:
(This was filmed for the laptop repair videos)
Customer was using it a lot to watch movies in bed.
Sitting on sheets or a comforter it
pulls in a lot of dust and lint.
Fan was clogged with dust.
Just had to clean the fans.

Dell Inspiron with sand and a water spill:
(Picture taken for the laptop repair videos)
It was covered in white corrosion.
There was no way this laptop was going
to work regardless how well I cleaned it.
Just too much corrosion.

Toshiba laptop about 4-5 yrs old:
Running really slow and bog down
hard drive was also working very hard.
Task Manager would not open in this state
but would open once the processes calmed down.
The hard drive failed the Seatools test.
chkdsk/r repaired for a temporary fix.
