More than 50 apart laptop models contained a chips, that would run so prohibited they melted a soldering that connected them to a motherboard. The problem even caused screens to stop operative altogether.

Writing for Gizmodo, Sean Buckley told of how he was tormented by a emanate with his aged Dell m1210, so he bound it by baking it in a oven.

Ok, it wasn’t that simple. He indispensable to delicately dismantle a mechanism and go by several ungainly stairs before he could try it out. But once he had salvaged a ancient motherboard, Sean preheated a oven to 320-350 degrees Fahrenheit (that’s 160-177 degrees Celsius in English) and baked a circuits for 2-4 mins on any side.

Drumroll please.

It worked. The hulk gaming laptop booted adult eventually and Sean installed Windows Vista, realised how awful it was and motionless to implement a Windows 10 Technical Preview. That’s new age fun with a selected feel.

Sean said: “Baking an aged laptop is one of a weirdest things I’ve ever finished with a square of consumer electronics. It was value it, yet we wish it didn’t have to be.
