First time i stripped down a laptop i followed the advice in scott muellers - upgrading & repairing laptops book.
All went OK, which surprised me!
People think they are easy to do, their not!
Laptop screen went about 9 months ago.
New screen would be £150, so sold the laptop for spares in micromart.
Got more than £100 for the parts.
But the main question is dagbladet did you have fun?
Oh and never really used a wrist strap.
Have a full anti-static kit from when doing an NVQ a few years ago, never used it since!!
