Replacing a Laptop's Cooling Fan

  • Episode 473
  • October 12, 2016

Robbie, Kelsey and Sasha hang out in Studio D this week and show how easy it is to replace a defective cooling fan on an old laptop, breathing new life into it for under $10. We also cover a slew of your viewer questions, as well as some followup comments about Episode 471's 360 video.

Hi everyone! Hope you're enjoying your week so far!

I'm starting to get used to the whole "Wednesday thing" but I must say, it's odd. Having done Category5 Technology TV every single Tuesday for 471 weeks leaves me feeling like I'm forgetting something on Tuesday nights. :)

One of the things I want to do more of during Season 10 is some DIY builds and repairs, so this week we start off light with a CPU fan replacement on an old laptop. For under $10 you can perform this easy repair in 5-10 minutes to restore your old machine to its former glory.

Sasha sat on the news desk, and Kelsey co-hosted this week, and we did our best to tackle another slew of viewer questions and comments (which is another thing we're making an effort to do more of).

Wirecast 7.1 is squishing our main camera a bit--it seems to have some bugs with aspect ratio which have already been reported in the forums. Hopefully they'll fix that soon since it's making me look a bit on the pudgy side.

Enjoy the show, and thank you so much for supporting Category5 TV!
