Step 1: Materials and Laptop Disassembly

  • laptop
  • screwdriver
  • poster board
  • hot glue

Since there are many types of laptops i will not post how to disassemble it.

what you want to do is to find a disassembly guide for your laptop and follow the guide.

Step 2: Moving the Lcd Cable

move the cable down a bit so you have more room to work with

Step 3: Set It Up

plan out the components on the poster board

Step 4: Finished

Hot glue it down and you are done.

    @SimonF7 If you knew anything about computers, then you would know that a static shock from your finger can screw up the entire motherboard and make it useless

    This is a great show of curiosity. In college, I used to hang old circuitry on my dorm room wall as art pieces. Then I got the bright idea to start putting working circuitry on the wall. I had a working radio with cd player. It was always funny watching people freak out when they realized the cd player worked with the cd spinning on the wall.

    How does the functionality improve? Not trying to put you down, just curious as to what you get out if this

    The cooling would increase because its not stuck in a box, so less thermal throttling would occur and the performance could increase. Just a theory, not an expert.

    Cooling can improve for a laptop because those things are just as much circuitry as possible shoved into a tiny little box, but only if there is still forced air (like the fan) over the CPU.

    A lot of PC builders will leave a side off of their tower for the same reason, but that is usually a bad idea as it screws up the air flow designed in the case.

    You realize if you touch this whole it's on the wall and happen to deliver a static shock, the computer is pretty much gone
