I have a sony vaio E 14 series laptop with 12 gb of ram. Its screen is broken (touch screen) which makes it harder to use. Second the laptop base is broken as well and the fan is making a lot of noise (cleaned the fan--still no luck) M thinking to make it as a testing server for various virtual software and other networking stuff. Is there any way that i can use convert my laptop into a full blown desktop with higher Ram and G cards ?

DIY & STUFFDIY & STUFF (3 months ago)
Or buy the same laptop (or similar) but with a broken motherboard ... then just replace the motherboard and done :) I do that all the time.

sameer chauhansameer chauhan (3 months ago)
I tried earlier to repair the laptop, but to no avail.
let me list thie things that are needed to repair
1. Hinges
2. Laptop screen.
3. Keyboard.
4. new fan.
5. laptop base.
The sony vaio i purchased back in 2012 year end
having configuration i7 3632QM (Ivy Bridge) (qaud core)
16 gb ddr3 ram (upgraded ram from 4 to 16)
2 gb ATI AMD graphivs card.
network card is Intel Centrino N 6235.

Over here if i go for the repair with all these it will cost me around 350 to 400 dollar. Given the fact that I have already spend 100 dollar already with no improvement.

also i have another laptop from Lenovo y 700. which make this sony laptop currently as of no use. So if there is any way that i can use this laptop board which was pretty decent back in 2012.
Also thanks for the prompt reply :)

DIY & STUFFDIY & STUFF (3 months ago)
No. I mean you can unplug a wireless adapter and get a PCIe x1 with this think: https://sc02.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1U1KlKpXXXXaeXFXXq6xXFXXX5/mini-pcie-to-pcie-1X-adapter-PHIYO.jpg but that's basically all you can do. I'd consider repairing it rather than forcing it to handle a desktop PCs work.

I have a question how do you power the PC do you have batery still plugged in or is it powered direcly from your wall ?

DIY & STUFFDIY & STUFF (5 months ago)
No. With all the holes and air circulating inside the PC ... it can reach max 40°C or like that. Moreover, that's not hot glue, but some water-based glue for wood. There is no chance of melting by heat.

h4jkosh4jkos (5 months ago)
What about the heat wount the heat from the PC melt the glue ?

No problem.

I have an original adapter. You cant just plug a PC in the wall. The motherboard needs 19,5V DC, power plug has 220V AC.

yes i think i will disassemble the chassis, remove display unit and make a wooden box, and put two 80x80mm propellers for cooling. then use external display, and usb  keyb+mouse so the laptop remain as a central unit only.
 and replace windows with linux ubuntu for faster performance.

DIY & STUFFDIY & STUFF (6 months ago)
Interesting. I have Aspire 7736 and it has one of the best cooling systems i've ever seen. I'd still recommend you to completely disassemble it, clean it, re-paste it and like that. It's less work and the result is better.

But you may for example modify the original chassis, add some fans, air intakes, LED diodes and so on :)

it is Acer aspire laptop, about 5 year old. i recon it has always been quite hot. now it goes to tilt under 10 minutes of windows browsing

DIY & STUFFDIY & STUFF (6 months ago)
Maybe all you have to do is to clean the radiator. Or re-paste it. I'm sure it wasn't overheating when it was still new (if it's not HP pavilion).

Jean DemerJean Demer (6 months ago)
Maybe a additional fan will bring better refrigeration system.

I don't suppose you have had any issues with the heat pipes not working on this style of stripped down laptop? I made something like this too, but the heatsink no longer works correctly, so the system shuts down by fail-safe.

DIY & STUFFDIY & STUFF (10 months ago)
Ok, maybe i will. Of course it works, you was just realy unlucky with breaking the heat pipes.

CheffBryanCheffBryan (10 months ago)
+DIY & STUFF If you ever run into the same issue, it's definitely worth making a video about. The only fix anyone else has had via Google is to essentially pack in more pre-sealed tubes they bought offline. Glad it works for you, so at least the concept of turning a laptop into a desktop is proven to work!

DIY & STUFFDIY & STUFF (10 months ago)
Yeah, i don't see any other way here (not accounting buying a new cooling system).

CheffBryanCheffBryan (10 months ago)
+DIY & STUFF Right, and that's what I first tried, but it seems to be the heat pipes may have leaked. Maybe I'll just get some flat copper stock and anchor a mini ITX heatsink into place.

DIY & STUFFDIY & STUFF (10 months ago)

Anthony LeacockAnthony Leacock (1 year ago)
I want to do this but with a pc case

DIY & STUFFDIY & STUFF (1 year ago)
+Anthony Leacock Sure, you can unplug almost everything and it will still work. Just don't touch the cooling system :).

And take a lesson from my case - use a tubber a lot to minimize vibrations (HDDs and fans are too loud when touching the wood). That's my actual problem, i have to make mine PC silent so i can start recording my voice.

To the previous question: I don't understand it. You want to connect the motherboard directly to the outlet? :D

Anthony LeacockAnthony Leacock (1 year ago)
+DIY &amp; STUFF My pc handels games pretty well, and to buy a gpu, cpu, power supply, fans, and motherboard would be very expensive. Couldn't I take apart the laptop and have it still working without the screen and case? Then design a case for it? I am very good with designing things with wood and a case for the computer would be the least challenging part/

Anthony LeacockAnthony Leacock (1 year ago)
+DIY &amp; STUFF I cant afford a desktop, and cant you power a pc through the charging cable for power?

DIY & STUFFDIY & STUFF (1 year ago)
+Anthony Leacock Hi, if your laptop is still usable, just use a desktop motherboard.

Because when using laptop motherboard, you have to kinda build your own custom case around it. Everything (HDDs, power switch..) is connected to the motherboard directly or via flex cabels. So you can't avoid soldering, if for example the power switch is located right on the motherboard.

So i think it's better to use a desktop motherb. in your case. Everything is connected to it via cabels and you can move its components all around as you like.

Anthony LeacockAnthony Leacock (1 year ago)
+DIY &amp; STUFF Ok, I have a fully functional laptop I want to do this to. My idea is to take apart the laptop and make a custom case for it out of wood. I want to make the computer look like a desktop pc, so the case will be a lot bigger than this. My plan is to kinda do what you did with the motherboard, have airflow. But instaid the motherboard will be a bit farther from the edges, just enough so the power cord can reach the edge. I will have a usb hub and hdmi output on the side. If I have the laptop motherboard with the hard drive and everything else in the computer, can I just simply mount the motherboard to the case (Along with the hard drive and whatever else is on it) to the inside and have it be a fully functional pc when connected to a monitor? I dont have a lot of experience with taking apart computers or sodering and I want to avoid sodering completely.

I can only imagine how it would have looked if you had the right tools. This is honestly an awesome re-use of a laptop. How does it work as far as having to use an external screen and external peripherals?

it's cool but i wanted to rip out my ear drums 20 seconds into the crappy computerized voice you got stage fright or what just speak normally man

Why bother ?

Why not? He took a scrap computer and made something cool and functional out of it, that's enough reason right there!

MynameisweirdossMynameisweirdoss (1 year ago)
+Karel Sládeček because it still performs like a laptop, and you already have a fully functioning one ?

There is a reason why computer (and audio, cellphone) chasses are made of metal, rather than wood or plastic. With the similar but directionally opposite reason with why microwave ovens are made of metal.

You may make a chassis with wood, as long as you envelop the electronics with a conductively continuous layer of metal - - - gauze or chicken wire would do.

The phenomenon that affects our audio or computer systems is the gaussian electromagnetic radiation effect. OK, maybe it is not called gaussian EM effect. However, the mitigation measure is called gaussian shield, against EM radiation.

When a space in enclosed in a gaussian shield, two directionally opposite modes of radiation are abated.

- EM waves external to the enclosure will be intercepted by the gaussian shield and will fail to transmit beyond the gaussian encasement.
- EM waves emanating from within the gaussian shield would be reduced in strengths when travelling out of the shield.

That is why a person caged inside a metal cage will not experience the deadly physical effects when a million volts is applied to the cage.

You also want to reduce the amount of microwave emanating out of the oven to be reduced to near zero levels.

You wouldn't want your hi-fidelity audio amp to receive and amplify and retransmit spurious signals together with your music.

You wouldn't want the high frequency busses in your computer to receive spurious signals, regardless of how much noise mitigation the designers have put into the circuitries.

You would want to maximally reduce the microwave operating frequencies of the computer busses from emanating those em waves to stress-fatigue cook your whatever.

Therefore, with the xigmatic chassis which I bought, I will screw in a rectangular piece of metal gauze to cover the plastic transparent window, ensuring the four screws provide continuous electrical contact between the chassis and the gauze.

That's mostly a theoretical concern, not so much in real life. I've got two computers with wood cases, one is my home theater PC (which let me cut the cable), the other is my home office PC (which I'm using right now). Both work VERY well, look really cool, and I've never had any kind of EMI problems.

the second i have my new laptop and my desktop PC working i'm doing the same thing with my current laptop.
this is so rad.... o.o

Don't laugh, I heard on a Radio Program about Science that if technology continues at it's current pace, Artificial Intelligence should catch up with Human Intelligence within a couple of decades, if not sooner.
It could be argued that some Robots are already smarter than some humans. I mean after all look at some of the knuckleheads running the most powerful Countries in the World today.

I did something similar to this, I turned an old laptop who's screen got shattered into a file server for the house.

Great job with this, looks great. I've salvaged an old laptop that I am planing on doing something similar to this and using it for a media server.
