Got so frustrated the past few weeks because my game would just lag out.
So… I decided to change the thermal paste!
If you ask me, putting a desktop together/apart is so much easier than a laptop.
Also, my gaming laptop hasn’t given me a problem for the past 2 years in any way before this lag thingy came.
Thus, it’s my first time opening it (or getting it fixed for that matter)
How complicated can it be?
Can’t recall if the warranty is on 3 years and I’m voiding it by doing this, but, wth… doesn’t matter.
Gotta clean off all that gooey stuff.
It took 2 tries to get it working properly though.
The first was that I missed out the power cable from the keyboard to the motherboard (it was so short that I didn’t notice it the first time around).
The second was that it powered on, but, a blank screen and I couldn’t even shut it down.
Had to reopen and re-plug in all the cables again.
Monitoring it now… especially whilst gaming online. ❤
