|A month ago my netbook fell off my bed, whereby the battery was ripped off and broke one of the battery holder clips.|
I repaired it temporarely with tape, keeping the battery in place, but was not happy with the solution.
Yesterday I undertook the bold enterprise (to go where nobody goes..) and opened up my netbook glueing the plastic clip parts together. (The grey piece on the bottom of the photo.)
After one and a half year of intensive use, it was a good time to clean the fan and the air outlets aswell.
I was very relieved to see my faithful netbook still operated after my daring action.
