This video is old. Check out our new content. This is Shane with ThatsItGuys.com Today I’ll be doing a video repair guide for
the Everex XT5300T. This will also work on other models such as the XT5000T, and several
others listed below. Alright, we’ve got the Everex XT5300T with
the classic video card issue and we’re going to do a repair guide on here. I’ve already removed the CPU and removed the
heatsink, as well. Which, if you have an Everex XT5000T you’ll notice, it’s a solid heatsink;
instead of two separate units, which we’ll show later. It’s actually a bulkier heatsink.
The actual heatpipe itself is thicker, a litle bit wider, and the actual grill is a little
bit taller, it’s a little bit more deep, and it’s wider. You’d actually have to modify
this in order to fit this into the original series laptop if you chose to do so. Just the basic requirements: You need a decent heatgun. I just grabbed
the cheapest one they had, which was a Wagner Heatgun; HT-1000. It only has two temperature
settings, but that’s fine. We’ll see how it works out. And then you’ll need just a little bit of
solder, any type will do. And just aluminum foil to wrap the rest of the laptop. Alright, we have the laptop fully wrapped.
And what we’re actually going to be doing is heating up both the Northbridge and the
GPU. Alright, we’re just going to run this in a
circular pattern, just like this. Making an 8 over the chips. Now we’re not really going
to go for the memory chips, because they usually don’t go bad. But if that is an issue we can
go back over. The problem with that is I have to completely disassemble the laptop to get
to them, because the back chips are right here. So let’s get going on this. [ Heatgun on low ] I can definitely feel this heating up, though.. I can actually feel the pressure coming up off this I’m actually noticing the solder start to melt here, so I know I’m getting
pretty close. This is actually… This is leaded solder,
and this board uses lead-free solder, so it is going to need to be a little bit hotter.
But I am noticing the heat is getting up there, so I’m going to be stopping this in just a
moment. Just getting the last few phases done. I think we should be good. [ Heatgun off ] We’ll just do a cooldown period of approximately
15 to 30 minutes, depending upon the temperature in the area. Alright now the unit should be cooled down
enough. Now I haven’t actually bolted anything in, I just wanted to make sure, before I reassemble
everything, “is this going to work”. So we will see. Alright, I just have the laptop turned on
it’s side and we’ll check out how this works. I’ve got it running on battery, so we’ll see
if the screen comes on. Oh dear God, we’ve done it. That’s crazy.
So…we have a working laptop, which would not boot or anything before, but now will.
Awesome. And the laptop is working perfectly fine after
repair and hasn’t had any issues since. All of the information is available on our website,
