Is it possible to refurbish my old Acer Aspire 7736G, screen 17,8" bought in 2009, which has power jack problem and ram is constantly failing?
I still use it in 3D design but rum is crushing very often even with web browser. It has been serviced once a few years ago but don't remember what we changed back then
I've had an extra 3 years out of my 7736 by buying a new power socket from eBay (<£5) and got a local computer repair shop to fix it (cost about £20). My soldering iron wasn't hot enough to melt the solder off the existing socket!
DDR2 SODIMMS are pretty cheap on eBay if you want 2x2GB (<£12 for a pair of Crucial modules), but I've been shopping for 4GB sticks and they are bonkers expensive (>£40 per module). Going that high is now pretty prohibitive.
