Laptop Tech Service Manuals !
« on: January 22, 2020, 01:35:48 pm »
Over the years, everyone, (myself included), has had their own various favorite 'sites' for downloading
the full proper service manuals for various Laptops. I mainly use them to find the various 'hidden' clips
and screws, and the order needed, for basic disassembly.  Would be great if they were all in one place.  :-+

I'm sure there are others, but one Aussie Tech was supplying all he ever found, at...
http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/
(AND drivers too!)

However, Toshiba in their wisdom forced him to remove about 300 of their tech manuals. (See site above).  >:(
Virtually every other brands manuals can still be found at the above site. But all is not lost!!

There is a Web Archiving site...  http://web.archive.org   that has a prior backup!  Here...

Scroll down to 'Toshiba', and they are ALL there...  :box:
No other companies cause such a problem.

Better post in repair section instead of pouring every new threads in general section.

Report yourself, click report at 1st post.

Also pls do again for your airforce linux thread, move to general computing, and that racket thingy to programming section.

Many sections created for a reason.

In other words, they don't want us to fix their products so let's boycott them!
Cryptocurrency has taught me to love math and at the same time be baffled by it.

Cryptocurrency lesson 0: Altcoins and Bitcoin are not the same thing.

That is correct! Many people have. We are talking about mainly OLD equip to keep in service.

There is a "move thread" button somewhere at the bottom of the page (if you are the author). No need to bother moderators.

I will try that in a minute, mate. Sorry.
I know what you are saying, but sometimes many general people can benefit from certain posts.
(Will 'move' this one now...)

Right , but "sometimes" turned into many times, and becoming so cluttered and annoying.
