I’m on XPS now!! Actually can use yesterday already 😛 Only update now hahaha…
The tech support came to fix it at 11.30am-1.30pm, yesterday. He unscrewed everything and replaced the motherboard. There’s some scratches but not so bad, the deepest is the one near the XPS logo near the on/off button… Oh well… What to do? This design is different from normal laptop, it’s not easy to take out everything. Want to see the parts? 😛 I took some photos when he dismantled everything, didn’t take all because I didn’t want to disturb him working *LOL* Just took some that were closer to me.
The “dead” motherboard.
One unknown part and DVD drive.
The scratch. Poor baby… *sob sob*
All photos taken with my phone 😛
The verdict!?!? OVERHEAT!!! WAH PIANG! For the first time I used a laptop until overheat! Motherboard replaced. I’m only using it for about 2 months and I heated it up so badly! 😛 I guess I’m too hot for the laptop to handle *LOL*
I know this model heat up very fast from the reviews I read, I didn’t expect I could actually kill it in such short span of time. I still can’t believe what I did! Hahaha… I think I have to go out and hunt for a fan for it *LOL* Else we’ll be seeing another overheat episode from Sweet Surrender and I will become Dell’s regular customer for motherboard replacement, sure will get blacklist :P.
