Operations that I proposed to a client were those of:
- Upgrading RAM with replacement of the modules with some capacity greater;
- Replacing Hard Disk with a more capacious
- Cleaning fans
- Change thermal paste
- Installing new operating system Windows7
For RAM 3GB I recovered from some old units. The system can withstand even composed Windows7
I opted for the hard disk drive to 250GB, more than enough for the customer and at low cost.
Beginning to dismantle virtually everything and clean up every part that happens to me in his hands:
I remove the fan, open it and clean it completely:
I remove the heatsink and I clean everything:
I delete the old thermal paste helping me with a bit of paper soaked in contact spray:
I apply the new thermal grease:
Subsequently remount everything and provider and to install Windows7 …
The client was thrilled … in practice has begun to use a PC that first believed obsolete and replace ….uscendosene with spending altogether ridiculous.
