Of course it exploded. What in gods name led you to believe that baking a
battery in an oven would end well????
Matt H: Anyone have an idea which solder joints go bad so I can fix it with an
actual soldering gun?
Norbe Toledo: At first I thought you were kidding, but I did and was amazed, my Dell
Inspiron M5010 black screen that looked, I stay fixed, thank you.
Friends try suggesting Bowlsmad61.
Sorry for my bad English.
Frank Biondo: Give us a call! We fix this unit regularly. We use a BGA reflow station to
reset the GPU properly. After we do the repair we build up the heat sink
with a perfectly fit piece of copper and high end arctic silver ceramic
thermal paste. We fix about 100 of these a week and about 93% hold up for a
long time. We do this repair for only $79.99. We also offer to swap out the
processor while it is open. Give us a call if you want this done fast and
right. (585)245 0055. Just ask for me Frank.
MartinConnollyonBass: I did this too and it worked. I removed the heatsink, CPU and CMOS battery,
placed the motherboard flat on greaseproof paper (as we call it here in the
UK) and cooked it for 15 mins at 220 degrees C. The paper stickers and
white plastic connectors on the board do kind-of go brown, but there's no
damage or melting of the plastic parts as a result. Let it cool down
without moving it, then re-assemble the laptop and AMAZING. It booted fine.
Thanks a million!
kenstirtube: The reason is that I suspected that the long operation at high heat caused
the solder on the motherboard to crack. The process of heating a circuit
board to the point of melting solder is called "reflow" and I read (and saw
videos) of people doing it to their laptops. I did not go so far as to
verify that cracked solder was my problem, but I figured it was worth a
shot. The laptop was dead and not worth paying someone to fix. Good luck if
you try it and don't forget to remove the battery!
bbclare7: Worked for me!! We will see for how long, but thanks!
Chris Sodey: You should try a proper reflow with an IR reflow machine (if you can find
someone that has one). The tricky part is finding the fault point on the
board. I have done this to many HP DV6000 laptops with bad nVidia cards
that would get too hot and literally separate from the board.
Nick Polites: One thing to note, you shouldn't ever leave the CPU in the oven, remove it
first before trying this. The easier way is to use a heat gun on low for 2
minutes and then on high for a minute or two. Remember to keep moving the
heat gun around and not keeping it in one spot as well as covering with
foil the surrounding part of the motherboard.
nicolasV1: get the ram out and boot it without ram. after put the ram back and boot
again is probably ram short.
Aamir Siddiqui: i tried to do this to my m5010 but it didnt work for me... i still have a
blank screen but no more 7 beeps...did i just kill it for good? help!
Francisco José Muñoz Molina: Lo hice igual... Si funciona... Muchas Gracias. I did the same ... If it
works ... Thank you.
Belbesos maribela: HAHAHAHA omg i was so tress and after i wach tis video is so much man even
if i don t fit it i love u u make my day ..thank u
Martin Naunov: great job ;)
Wesly Aldrich: There is a permanent way to fix these laptop for around $80. Search for
"Notebook Tek" on google.
kenstirtube: Sadly no. The 7 beeps came back after 2 weeks. I was so happy until that
Richard Deroo: WARNING!!! I tried this oven fix and it ruined my motherboard. Components
fell off the board and the battery exploded.
