Hi all, I was wondering from those who have done the FHD upgrade on the N53 whether it was worth it? Also, where did you get your screen and what brand etc?
I have contacted the eBayer elbolo suggested but he cannot guarantee the brand or model or part number of the screen which I will receive... he says 'you will receive a screen compatible with the n53'. I need a better idea than this, I'm a photographer and image quality is very important...
Theres an Asus N53SN-SH71 for sale right now that i might buy...
has i7(2670qm) 8G DD3,2GB Nvidia GT540M etc...
my only concern is...I want to use this for a bit of gaming especially when diable 3 drops... Im sure it will run the game decently but i want to know if i can upgrade the graphics card in this laptop... is that at all possible for this model?
No, you can't upgrade the graphic card for this model. It's put directly onto the motherboard. Also, very few laptops offer this possibility.
You should just save more money until you can afford a laptop with a graphic card that satisfies your needs.
For me the GT550M it's more than enough...
@Oliviakrk, ASUS787 wrote at least 2 posts where he explained how he implemented his solution, just go into his profile to see a list of his posts.
I have another 'bright' idea about the backlit keyboard. What do you say about connecting the power wire from the keyboard to one of those minuscule usb bluetooth dongle which you can then insert into an usb port? Yes, that means you have to get the wire outside the laptop somehow, but you would be able to activate the backlit by only enabling and disabling the device, or by just unplugging it. I'm thinking of sticking the wire outside trough the card reader, solder it onto the usb bluetooth dongle and connect it to the usb... Would it work? Now, another part is how you can open a bluetooth dongle and to solder a wire onto it... The main advantage would be not voiding the warranty...
I received my N53SV a couple of weeks back and been pretty impressed with it. Especially coming from a Core2 Duo with 2GB ram.
Naturally, i chucked in 12 gigs ram and an Intel 520 SSD as soon as i got it. I had the issues with the Wifi card too and decided to get and intel 6300. received it day before yesterday and installed it yesterday.
Problem I'm facing is that since the installation, lappys making a wiered noise. Its almost a whine and I've noticed that it only comes when I'm transferring something over the wireless. I've heard that these noises are from faulty capacitors on the power circuits. its pretty loud and very audible in a quite room.
Any one had this sort of trouble?
Could it be an issue with power drain? I've heard that this card is a monster with 3x3 and all, I've only plugged in 2 of the antennas.(left the middle one n/c)
Thanks heaps for your time.
PS:Oh, and I'll be taking it apart again to add the third antenna(which is in the mail), if anyone needs a picture guide on taking it apart, I'd be happy to make one and post the link here.
