This Is Why I Do What I Do

I love connecting with my customers. Usually when a customer shares their address with me, I'll send them a Thank You card for choosing RapidTech for their computer needs. I'll also add them to my holiday card list and mail out cards during the holiday season. These days some people consider it old school. It's something I enjoy doing. It's a small gesture that goes a long way and helps make a person's day better.

But, every now and then a customer will send me a Thank You card. Which always catches me off guard and makes me feel good. This time it was Javi Luna. Not only did he send me a card. He sent me stickers with his podcast logo. I love stickers.

Be sure to support Javi, his comedy, and his podcast. Connect with him on social media.

Astronomical Presented by Fortnite and Travis Scott - RapidTech Facebook Gaming

This Fortnite event was awesome. I wasn't sure what to expect. Was it just going to be the release of a single with video? No. It was so much more. Well thought out and executed. It got me wishing for more events and shows like this. It was a concert within a game. I recommend everybody checking it out during the weekend.

HP Elitebook 8460p CPU Fan Replacement

Even my computers break down. And, it happened at the last Free Software Saturday. I booted up my laptop and there was an error that the system fan was not working properly. I opened it up real quick. And, there it was. A dead fan. Wouldn't turn on when the computer started. Luckily that was the only problem. It's an easy fix. All I had to do was wait for the fan to come in.

You can order the fan here.

That's what I love about pro class laptops. They're a dream to work on. Of course, my model is getting older. But, it does what I need it to. I just pop off the bottom panel and I have easy access to the fan and heat sink. Since I have to take out the old fan, I decided to clean the heat sink and apply some new thermal paste. Quick fix and cleaning. Took under an hour.

Booted up the machine. The fan spins. And, everything is running smooth and cool again.

HP Beats Laptop CPU Fan Install [Video]

In this video, I disassemble an HP Beats Laptop to replace a CPU fan that is no longer working. This problem is causing the laptop to over heat and shutdown suddenly. 

All the screws are on the bottom. remove them all. Slide out the optical drive. Don't forget the small screw in the optical drive slot. Remove the rubber feet on the back of the laptop. Remove the screws found underneath and then remove the small panels. A couple of screws will be exposed and those will need to be removed. And, that's it. 

Now, it's a matter of unsnapping and removing the top panel to reveal the motherboard. Be careful with the ribbon cables that connect the keyboard, touchpad, and power button. A few more screws, and the motherboard, CPU fan, and heat sink are out. Now, all that is left is replacing the fan and putting everything back together.

This is a solidly built laptop. No flimsy parts to worry about.
