    Tapos Toshiba niya mukhang HD failure na kasi black screen na eh. Mas gusto niya yung lenovo because of the better hardware.

    If it really is a HDD failure, common yan for any laptop brand due to the nature of its portability. I have seen 15 year old HDDs running decently on a desktop. Whereas yung sa laptop, hindi madalas lumagpas ng 3 years before starting to fail.

    An SSD should fix that and will last waaaaaaay longer.

    Also noticed entry level Lenovos needing keyboard replacements din a few years in. Ito yung mga Lenovo Ideapad 300/305 series IBD/ISK/IKB.

    Some common signs ng HDD na malapit na madeds is yung pag ginalaw mo yung mouse mo, hihinto hinto yung cursor. O basta may mga biglang tigil yung paggalaw screen. Tapos anjan din yung maririnig mo na yung pagki-click ng HDD mismo.

    Agree sa SSD. Once you go SSD, you will never go back to HDD. Haha.

    Just make sure you pick a decent SSD. Dami ngayon mura pero depending on how important your data is, I'm not trusting anything that's not a
    Samsung
    Intel
    Crucial
    Western Digital (this is only a recent addition, yung Sandisk branded SSDs dati were also spotty)

    I just bought a battery back sa Shopee for my Lenovo G40-30. Meron din sa Lazada kaso mas mahal ng konti. I tried replacing the 18650 cells in the battery pack. Kaso totoo pala ang tsismis na may chip sa battery pack na naka-record kung ilang beses na na-charge ang cells. Kaya pala okay pa yung lumang 18650 cells eh may warning na agad. Dami ko tuloy 18650 cells sa bahay.

    So it's useless to replace the battery cells? Need talaga new battery pack no?

    Yup unless you can "reset" the charge cycle counter. It took 6 years before it happened (occasional use) so sulit na din.

    Went to a lenovo service center. Hindi nga din sila nagpapalit ng cell

    When a single cell goes bad, the protection circuit stops current from coming in (won't charge) or from getting out (no power to the load). Replacing the faulty cell won't automatically bring it back.

    It's not based on a counter. It basically compares the relative voltages of each bank of batteries. When a cell becomes defective, the voltage for that bank will measure lower compared to the good bank which indicates a bad battery so it locks down to prevent fire hazards. This is a hard lock and in all intents and purposes, is permanent. Some can be reset if the technician knows how to do it safely.

    This is just one of the many functions of a battery protection circuit. Depending on the design, it can also monitor the pack's temperature, current flow, and cell health, etc.

    It's typically easier to just buy a new battery pack (or a quality replacement one) rather than pry open the old pack. Just think about it... if one of the battery dies out, the other cells won't be too far behind in their lifespan.

    I already replaced my Lenovo G40's keyboard twice. The replacements work great but the Fn keys layout is not the same.
    One useful tip I got from work-at-home groups is to use an external keyboard when you're at home. So when I bought the second replacement, I threw in a wireless keyboard as well. It's more comfortable when working for hours aside from saving the laptop keyboard from wear and tear. You break it, it's easier to replace.
