If so there are prior reports of it dying and given that I do not advise repair. The issue is on the web and the strain of the work you did can cause it to fail at the motherboard and chip level. The priors are methods I don't endorse so I don't write about them.
For cleaning I rarely take the machine apart. Instead I advise a daily canned air cleaning for a week, then weekly for a month and then back to the usual 1st of the month.
Disassembly has been the end of many machines.
I was wondering if anyone could provide any assistance.
I was attempting to clean out the fan out a HP Pavilion DV6500 laptop, which requires a complete disassemble to completely access the fan. So, I started to do a full disassemble. I removed all components from the bottom of the laptop (hard drive, RAM modules, wifi chip, DVD drive.)
I then removed the keyboard and the power button cover off the top of the laptop and disconnected the three cables attached to the power button cover.
At this point, the fan is semi visible and I attempted to clean all the dust out of it without going further, using compressed air and q-tips with a bit of rubbing alcohol. There was a significant amount of dust and dirt build up in the fan.
I then re attached the cables for the power button cover and keyboard and went to power the laptop on for a test before re assembling everything else, but the screen doesn’t come on at all. I tried putting the hard drive and ram chips in as well and the screen still doesn’t come on.
The cables I disconnected with the power button cover aren’t related to the screen I don’t believe.
Is there anything I could be missing or anything else I should try?
Thank you for any assistance.
