  5. hp dv9000 gpu is about to die

    Listen Closely to what i am about to say. This is by no means a joke or exageration or any prank. Many have laughed at me but i have repaired hundereds of these plagued systems with gpu issus and it is DOWN RIGHT SIMPLE... takes about 45-60 minutes. and Only one part from a Junk laptop and or any desktop with a SMALL enough COPER fined heatsink that is junk. is needed Step one Pre heat oven to 375. (YES I SAID OVEN) find a Pan the size of motherboard put pan in oven with the preheat close to the front of oven for ease. step two take laptop apart. remove mobo Remove ALL stickers and all removable parts. cmos bat. ram cpu heats ect... this should only take about 10 minutes. oven should be pre heated. step three set mobo On the pan. CPU socket up and TOWARD YOU.. very important for when you remove. set timer for 30 minutes ( BE WARNED) it will not smell good. During the Wait. make yourself a shim a Copper one Prefered. the Best i found to use is one from a JUNK laptop heat sink (the fins to be Exact.) you want the shim to be about 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch just enough to cover the Die of the gpu Standard pliers will do the bending for ya.. so that is done now twitle your thumbs till the timer goes off and a side note ( DO NOT USE A PENY AS MANY SUGEST) or Aluminum gaurds or any other {censored}... I again have done this countless times.. And i have had (ONE) return ever....... can upload receipts for proof. find a oven mit or towel or folded paper towl. DING timer is done. Open oven. and as soon as you open the oven visualy locate the Gpu. and grab for it. when grabing for it do not slide around or grab soemthing wrong at these temps things can be rippd off...slide fingers between pan and mobo and place thumb on die of gpu. pull mobo to you and up ward. at same time and get it out of oven Ignore the fact oven is still on.. Pinch that gpu hard not hard enough to break the mother board though.. this will be hot even with a mit. but do it.. it will not burn you...hold for 1 minute or better note to not move around much or anything of that nature. after that.. while still warm put all stickers back on they will stay down with ease while warm. cool a bit more then assemble.... in assembly the shim comes into play. use arctic silver or what ever compond you have. put it On BOTH sides of that shim you made earlier and set it on top of the gpu. put in cpu. then put on heat sink. for those of you reading this may not know where the gpu is on a dv6000 or dv9000 when you laid in the oven cpu up and facing you its just to the left of that can't miss it. Again i must say.. this is my attempt of guidence for you from my personal experiments. till i found this NEAR perfect method... and this is EXACTLY what i do to all my customers machines and have had only ONE return best of luck Sugested for ease.. but not time conveince. Ebay. sells the shims. and while at it order a small tube of arctic silver. your waiting already for the shim so whats a few extra bucks. to save a few degrees
  6. d255e WORKING with bugs.

    So here we are again Another Wifi issue many have seen them time and time again. I however fall into a different catagory as I have taken the time to read ALL the post for netbooks Not one person has the problem (at least documented here) that I have. Instaled retail 10.6.4 Via [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] + [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]. 3 things not working are Hard wire (care less about) Vid ( have not ventured here yet so no need for help just yet.) Wifi.(here is the topic at hand.) I inserted my Kext after not being able to find one. I pain stakingly made one fun first time experience tell you what.. Besides the point. My issue is. The system sees the wifi not a problem BUT the wifi does not see other networks I have gone to sys pref. then advanced. Tried to add the wireless manualy still network can not be seen. Set wep then typed in pass then tried scan as a video sugested. still can not see it or any for that matter... the wifi I have in this is a AR5b95-h Please note before it is sugested. The kext (IO80211Family.kext) Does not work as matter in fact it makes the wifi not seeable. again I can be doing something wrong here as well. So any and all help would be wonderfull and thanks Steven -
