I needed to do some part-swapping on this here laptop, and I figured that it would make for a dandy post. Except for the part where the effing camera refused to boot up.

The patient is a Toshiba Satellite P775D. The screen, keyboard and fan were on the menu.

SCREEN

I’ve rebuilt/repaired a pile of laptops, and this screen replacement was about the easiest one ever. The ribbon cable which connects the screen to the motherboard usually has the connector at the motherboard, requiring that you take the thing to pieces. Not this time: the connector is at the back of the LED panel, so all I had to do was to pop off the bezel, remove six screws, unplug the old, plug in the new and button it all up. Very easy. Suspiciously easy.

FAN & KEYBOARD

I should’ve known that there was going to be a reckoning after the screen nearly replaced itself. Do you know how many screws there are holding the cabinet together? 22, as in TWENTY-EFFING TWO. We all own firearms without that many fasteners.

But I’m not really complaining. Start to finish was under an hour, and I didn’t have any leftover parts or screws. Always a good sign, heh.
