Cleaning of the laptop (LC5505D).

   I cleaned the laptop inside (LC5505D).
   This PC is an NEC product and my previous server machine. I use it as a temporary server. Yes, temporary, but the fact that I used it from 2012.Apr.14 to 2013.Aug.01 (he-he). Now, I use this PC instead of an old Elite II Elite-4 (a cybernet product called Keyboard PC) in my living room. Recently, I heard uncomfortable fun noise from it. So, I decided to clean it up yesterday.

  1. First remove the main battery. And, remove four screws. (Fig. 1)
  2. Turn upside down. Slide and remove the palmrest assembly carefully (Fig. 2), because the other side of the palmrest has a touchpad ribbon cable (Fig. 3).
  3. Remove the keyboard panel. Carefully, because it also has a ribbon cable (Fig.3).
  4. Finally, I meet the dusty fun (Fig 4). Ha-ha.

   I cleaned the pc inside up. If you try the same thing, wash your hands first. If you use a vacuum cleaner or something, take precautions against static electricity!!

   After cleaning, I feel something better about the pc. It’s just my imagination??? (^_^;)

   By the way, I pasted the Google AdSense code on the left sidebar. But, it shows ADs in Japanese. How can I change it into English? My sites run on sub directory type. I have not found out “HowTo” yet.
