I accidentally snapped these wires off while trying to unplug this from the cover off my laptop to clean the insides
what is it for?
will my laptop still work?
thanks in advanced
this is another view from the cover and wires
the first was where it was plugged
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?
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.
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.
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.
speakers with the wires
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.
I cut then short actually
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
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
>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.
Oh ok, just there was a guy with an asus laptop experiencing overheating problems >>>/diy/935153
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.
Oh dear, that definitely requires heatsink removal for cleaning.
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?
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.
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.
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
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.
>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.
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.
