Asus N53 notebook repair attempt



An attempt to repair an Asus notebook. The computer is just over two years old and develops crash problems. The video shows what kind of trouble I found inside and the following re-assembly of the system, until the system boots into Windows 7.
The notebook is an Asus N53JQ, 6GB memory, I7 processor, Nvidia 425m graphics, full HD 15,6 inch screen.

    Yes, true. Although when I searched for the motherboard I only found an exporting factory in China. I did not go that far… I'm typing this on a new 300 euro el-cheapo Packard Bell. Cheaper then a repair.

    No, the Intel i7 rests in a socket and is removable. The GT 425M Nvidia graphics processor is soldered to the mainboard and is not removable… and that is the faulty chip….

    Before I installed the current W7 version, I ran the computer in a dual boot Ubuntu Linux-Windows 7 config. I had the same problems under Ubuntu… So I tried a new Windows 7 install. I did try out several driver versions. Memtested the ram, HDtuned the hard drive. GPU-Z has trouble to read the graphics chip… to be continued. I can't afford to buy a replacement one!
