    Fixing electronics or just about anything on your own.. YOUTUBE!!!

    YOUTUBE Tutorials are spot on!! Wanna save money youtube is the ticket!! Something breaks just youtube how to fix it.. Buy parts on Ebay for pennies on the dollar.. So easy a caveman can do it!!

    Quick story - I had a 2018 HP laptop computer with a badly broken hinge. Frame busted with hinge. It was busted up. Took it in and they wanted $350 to repair it. I said nope and took it back home and it collected dust. Finally got the nerve up after 6 months to try to fix it on my own as I saw my same broken computer going for $500 on Ebay in good condition today..

    I ordered the new hinge and Framing on ebay for $20. Took 3 weeks to come from China.. lol.. Hit the youtube vid on how to change and repair hinge on HP laptop (my model)... Bingo. 31 minute video!!

    Took a drink and took it slow.. Took me about an hour and half to fix it.. Wiped off all the dust and bingo FIXED!!!

    I'm handy and it was a process no lie. Did it not for the money so much but more for the challenge to see if could. Tore that laptop computer down to the bones and scraps.. Putting it back together was a little harder but I took notes and had the youtube vid to reference from..

    Will sell my working computer now for $500 on ebay or use it as a back up.. Haven't decided yet??? That's the story!! Can saloon now..


    YOUTUBE!!! CAR REPAIRS, HOME REPAIRS TOO!! USE IT and SAVE MONEY!!! Just here to help..

    true. some have never even put memory in their pc. back in the day when i worked for circuit city we would charge so much for repair and have to wait for the person to leave so they couldn't see how fast it was done. youtube does have an answer for everything.

    Yup can upgrade memory chips as they are just plug in and outs.. SO EASY once your computer is opened up. Cell phones even easier.

    Just Youtube it on your cell phone and computer for memory chip upgrades if you never touched a tool in your life.. It's still really easy and I think you can still pull it off. Chicks can do this. Cell Phones it's a joke.. Upgraded long lasting cell phone batteries too..

    Just hit up amazon for the longer lasting new lithium batteries or memory chip upgrades for model electronics and you'll be happy with results and shocked how easy they are to swap in and out...
