this is another view from the cover and wires
the first was where it was plugged
>>
those wires are for your built-in speaker

you can live without them, and should consider never working inside of laptops ever again
>>
If you know how to solder properly then yes.
If you don't your fucked and need a new whatever that cable was connected to.
>>
>>52614131
Is that leading to a speaker? What is the make and model of your laptop?
>>
>>52614149
dang
I was looking at a tutorial
and it was removed quite easily
mine doing so much force and it was difficult...then snap the red wire snapped off

then I was like fuck it tried harder and they all snapped
and then took it out forcefully

can they be repaired?
>>
replace whole thing or fix the wires(good luck)
>>
>>52614170
asus k56cm
yeah now it's obvious when you mention it
it leads to the speakers

headphones will still work though, right?
>>
>>52614184
It is a standard plug, you could buy a new one and reattach the wires from the speaker that are broken.

If you put it together without the speaker connected, make sure the other end that is connected to the speaker isn't going to short anything out. Also, make sure that they are actually connected to the speaker. Connectors like that are used for all kinds of things, like fans, power to auxiliary boards etc.

It does look like a speaker connector do, two grounds, with red and white for right and left positive.

>>52614184
>i pulled it so hard something snapped
>SO I PULLED HARDER
are you retarded?
>>
>>52614242
no, but at that momen
it would not have mattered
and I was doing exactly the same as the video and using tweezers
and as I said . I didn't care since one already snapped
>>
>>52614206
>asus k56cm
You'll need part number 13GNUH1AP023 13N0-N3A0B31 for example http://www.ebay.com/itm/ASUS-S56CA-DH51-Bottom-Case-With-Cover-Speakers-13GNUH1AP023-13N0-N3A0B31-/262235648129

You'll need to find one that includes speakers.

Message the seller and make sure they ship it with the speakers as shown in the photo.
>>
>>52614293
much appreciated
thank you
>>
>>52614307
Shop around, you could probably find one cheaper on a localized version of ebay or country specific website.

But definitely message the seller/store and get them to guarantee that is comes with the speakers included as that part number is just for the base plastics.

If the speakers have a model number on them you might be able to source just the speakers for even less cost.
>>
>>52614357
speakers with the wires
ok great
>>
>>52614423
Do they lift off? Could be a part number sticker on the underside.
>>
>>52614453
yeah easily
>>
>>52614496
there is only like sticky tape holding then
if I pull enough it comes off I guess
>>
>>52614533
Depends on if you want to risk going the extra mile to save a buck.
>>
>>52614545
well it is 4 years old
I will just use headphones for the time being. I always use headphones so no biggie.
I might just save up for the
Asus ROG G751JY
and give this to a sibling
>>
>>52614545
>>52614618
and thank you so much for yout help
>>
>>52614618
Alright then cool.

For the time being put some tape over the exposed ends of the speaker wires so they can't wonder around and short against anything on the motherboard once the laptop is reassembled.
>>
>>52614653
I cut then short actually
like this
>>
>>52614671
Okie dokie.
>>
just take the laptop to a proper service if you are incapable you goddamn mongoloid
>>
>>52614653
and I vacumed the fan
and blew in it
is that enough
anything else I should clean before closing
in the videi he unswrews the fan as well
but don't want to ruin anything more accidentally
>>
You can easily solder them back together if you either got the skills or anyone who knows so. It's very easy. I have been there and that's what got me into soldering. Now I pretty much fix any cable when it dies
>>
>>52614704
Are you the guy from the /diy/ thread last night (Swifts) with overheating problems?
>>
>>52614700
no need for the disrespect mate
either say something beneficial or keep quite

and one has to learn and be dependent and have background about everything, no one came out of his mother knowing everything. everbody was in an ignorant state once, like this
>>
>>52614731
no, why?
but I do have a mild heating problem when i play games for over 90 min
start to get fps drops and stuttering. it's terrible and annoying
>>
>>52614719
that's nice,
perhaps another time I'll learn to solder
>>
>>52614704
>anything else I should clean before closing
Yes, you want to get all the dust from the inside radiator portion of the heatsink. This is what traps the heat inside of the laptop.

>>52614754
Oh ok, just there was a guy with an asus laptop experiencing overheating problems >>>/diy/935153
>>
>>52614704
If you have the skills, change the thermal paste
>>
>>52614789
But be careful not to rip any thermal pads.
>>
>>52614121
>I accidentally snapped these wires off
Suuuuuuure

You had an autistic fit of rage, is more like it.
>>
>>52614789
don't unfortunately
and don't have thermal paste
>>
>>52614806
haha
well the first wire was accidental
then I was like fuck it and tried to plug it off with the rest harder
>>
>>52614808
In that case do not remove the heatsink, doing so will require a repaste.
>>
>>52614782
nothing looks like that for me should have taken a picture
the laptop is ultraslim
I vacuumed every possible place
hopefully I did well
>>
>>52614837
If you can somehow remove the fan or the fan blade cover without disturbing the heatsink then it might be worth looking into. 95% of the dust ends up in there.

Shine a torch into it and see if there is any dust build up.
>>
>>52614920
oh too late already closed it
theres is a chance there is no possible accumulation beacause it's very slim and flat on the motherboard(?).
hopefully there isn't
>>
>>52614920
https://youtu.be/CcMYPHEvMKo
if you skip to 07:30
you can see
>>
>>52615015
Oh dear, that definitely requires heatsink removal for cleaning.

>>52614978
I wouldn't worry about it OP, its when the laptop starts shutting off it becomes a problem.

As for the throttling during games, maybe invest in a laptop cooling pad?
>>
>>52615095
I do have one
it is 4 years old so I wouldnt expect different and it's not for gaming
maybe
the 90 min limitation is good I guess to force me to take breaks :P
>>
>>52615121
I do have a cooling pad*
the laptop is 4 years old*
>>
>>52614782
by the way I am surprised that this has lots of dust for 2.5 years
when I opened mine there was barley any
>>
>>52615132
hmm could be a bit of dust build up then. Dust on the inside of the radiator dulls the fans ability to push heat outside of the system and the temperatures slowly creep up until it hits the throttling trigger.
>>
>>52615170
Depends on the environment and how often it needs to activate the fan, in colder climates such as mine the fan hardly ever comes on for long with my laptop.

I noticed that when I visited the US it would constantly come on.
>>
>>52615173
I should consider taking my laptops to a guy like from the video, next time
clean work and he has thermal paste haha
>>
>>52615205
I see
which countrt if I may ask?

I am from Canada
>>
>>52615236
UK. Your winters are colder but our summers don't really exceed 20-25c most of the time except for extreme cases.

Plus guys here think its macho to keep the heating turned off.
>>
>>52615284
I see
I had a feeling you weren't American
you aee too nice to be
>>
>>52615284
just started a game so far way better than usual been playing 15 min now
same game it used to stutter and...
>>
>>52615221
I just recently performed a re-paste for a friends 2009 inspiron 1545, it was hitting 65c @ idle and shut off without a cooling pad.

It turned out to be full of dust and the thermal paste was literally crumbling away. After clean up and repaste it now idles at 39c, I also replaced the chipset's thermalpad with this since its recommenced not to reuse old ones http://www.amazon.co.uk/ARCTIC-Thermal-Pad-1-0-Conductivity/dp/B00UYTTDO6
>>
>this is the politest thread on /g/ right now
>>
>>52615335
I see, informative thank you
>>
>>52615322
Aw that's good news then. HWmonitor will let you monitor temperatures and record the maximum it reached. 70c under load is the upper end of what it should be reaching.

>>52615376
Its probably that brit's doing, I bet he's sipping a cup of tea too.
>>
>>52615403
Meant for >>52615346
>>
>>52614284
>and I was doing exactly the same as the video

You know, some people follow the directions of their GPS unit into lakes and the sea. Think for one second before continuing on to break things you fucking ape.
>>
>>52615433
if it changes anything, your words don't effect me. I don't know why your are so butt hurt when it's not even your laptop.
and I don't see what you gain by being uncivilised with your words.
