Got YLOD on my 60Gb launch day unit today |
Never thought I'd say that!
Luckily though, I managed to fix it in about 2 hours
It cost me £5.99 for some thermal compound from Maplins and a heat gun from the hardware store at £30.
I've not idea how it works with a 3-year old machine but I'm guessing £35 for same-day repair ain't bad...
Dead chuffed. Followed this video if anyone else tries it:
