Well as we speak I am presently working on a detailed hardware trouble-shooting guide for Bleepingcomputer, but it is not quite ready for public publication at this time. Plus there is another one which I am working on that is related to the proper computer cleaning proceedures. I still have to add the finishing touchs on it before that one gets published for public viewing. :thumbup2:
So hang in there, now that the holidays here are almost over, It'll be all finished rather quickly. :wink:

In the meantime, you can browse through this section of the Bleepingcomputer forums for already published materials.


I noticed The_patriot09 also replied so he may able to help you as well. :thumbup2:

Hardware troubleshooting on a laptop is limited...on a netbook, even more so.

And...procedures will vary, depending on what the perceived problem is.

What type of system?

One or more of the following may be useful, material may be dated:
