Someone try to replace a USB port themselves?
I had one a few weeks ago that tried to replace a dc input jack. Ended up burning the board so badly that the fiberglass carbonized and became conductive enough to cause a short. I had to take a 1/4" drill bit to it to remove all of the shorting.

man that happened to me as well. idiot replaced the power jack on a laptop and it burned trough the board. Dremel did nothing. had to drill away the positive pole and solder a jumper wire to the fuse. Thanks Ifixit. more stuff for me

No Title

an 820-3330, they snapped the PCH die whilst removing the motherboard, then powered it on causing some fire and 2 internal PCB shorts.

The worst part is i had another a week later, 820-3332 that someone somehow ripped the PCH die off, The GPU, GPU fest and GPU supply were all fried too, as well as more internal shorts.

in the few years ive done this, a snapped chipset die has only occurred twice and is simply the most ridicules situation ive ever come across.
Did i win?

my pet hate is gold and silver thermal compounds, and excessive application of thermal paste, i see it way too much...

Arctic silver is cancer and totally not suitable for the type of heat sink that is used in these laptops. Heat sinks that cover more than 1 chip are not very accurate and will not sit perfectly flat on the chips. This is why the more "chunky" paste is used to fill in the voids.

Holy fucking shit... unbelievable... people using guides online to improve the thermal of their machines? Gamers? I expect these shit from Linus tech tips, not from customers holy hell

It seems like every week I receive at least once sodomized laptop

Had this one in today, they managed to pull the screw hole for the SSD.
Bonus: They tried to get it back on with hot glue

Issue was thankfully not related to that and the laptop is happily working already :)

We should start a "Wall of Shame". :D I think we've all seen some back yard hacks, could end up being funny.

I had a MacBook come through awhile back that looked like it had been opened with a chisel.

not as big as the other one but still funny. guy said his laptop burned his power block and the replacement one after he brought his dead pc to a Chinese repair shop


they didn't even solder it. It is just a big glunk of hot glue. they dind't even try

Customer Said: "MBP is over heating and reboots often."

Open case, MLB is missing a couple screws... Turn the board over, has one screw holding the heatsink on. /groan
Of course, the board is an 820-2915; because they deal with heat really well. /s

The thing is, this was done by another shop!

I'm always more afraid after a customer says "Another store tried to fix it but they coudn't" then when they say "Yeah I tried to fix it myself but it didn't help"
Because the store probably got the tools to mess it up real good, while the customer probably just placed it in rice lol

Anyways not really sodomized by customer or store but felt like posting this closeup anyways :)
