Want To Learn How to Fix Laptops? Check out these Videos

Podnutz Laptop Repair Videos Laptop repair can be tricky. There are hidden screws all over the place, a certain order you have to pull it apart and sometimes the spare parts are hard to find. Laptops are also prone to damage that a desktop wouldnt normally have such as being dropped or having a damaged DC jack.

Steve Cherubino, who was computer technician until he went full time podcasting has worked on thousands of laptop computers in his shop and would now like to share his laptop repair knowledge with you in the form of high definition, narrated, downloadable videos.

He covers everything you would want to know about repairing laptops such as:

  • How to replace a motherboard
  • How to replace an LCD Screen
  • What to do when the laptop keeps shutting down
  • How to fix DC power jacks
  • The crucial difference between a bad screen and a bad inverter board
  • How to replace hinges
  • Where Steve buys all his parts
  • The best way to go about taking a laptop apart
  • How to solder
  • The art of fixing AC adapters
  • How to handle a laptop that has had liquid spilled in it
  • What to do when a laptop overheats
  • How to replace CD/DVD drives, RAM, processors, hard Drives and wireless cards
  • and much, much more!

This master course in laptop repair sells for $54.95 and Steve is so confident that you will find value in his product that he has a 60 day money back guarantee if you arent satisfied with the videos.
Seriously, it would only take only one laptop repair job for you to recoup your investment. The videos pay for itself.

As part of his launch, Steve is also giving away a Samsung Q1 to one of the next 100 people to buy the videos.

Go to the site, check out his sample videos and I am sure you’ll find that what he is offering is well worth the investment.

    Re: Want To Learn How to Fix Laptops? Check out these Videos

    I watched the sample video of Steve Cherubino repairing a laptop. He appears to be very knowledgeable of the subject matter. However, best practices require the use of a ground strap. I did not see one while he worked on the laptop.

  • C6Gunner says:

    I just recently bought Steve’s videos, and I think he did a great editing job on those.

    The content is well-presented (the HD videos are the best), and the jobs he demonstrates are some of the most common that you will come across when repairing laptops.

    Now I’m just hoping that, as promised, he will add to the collection soon.

  • Very Cool! I’d like to see a sample video in it’s entirety prior to pulling the trigger…

  • Jay says:

    You know, I was just about to buy a book on this last night. Thanks Bryce!

  • Bryce W says:

    Tampa, he has a full sample video on the page I linked to.

  • Mathew says:

    I’m a fan of Steve Cherubino’s videos and particularly his “Podnutz Daily” podcasts. If you like Technibble for it’s repair business focus, you’ll love Steve’s podcasts.

    I watched a number of his laptop videos when they were free on his website (kind of a “beta” program), and was happy to shell out the $54.95 when he added even more videos and rolled out the whole package.

    His videos are clear, step by step, and loaded with “running commentary” that is full of tips and advice. I consider myself to be pretty experienced (almost 25 years), but I always learn something from Steve.

    Particularly if you’re an independent repair tech with little contact with other techs (like me), you’ll find the videos and Steve’s podcasts to be a treasure trove of advice and support(like Technibble!).

    And no, I have no connection to Steve whatsoever, just an appreciation of his work, and gratitude for his being a “virtual mentor” to many of us out here feeling our way through this business.

  • No kidding…i just checked out the sample video on the website and this will be a great investment for my business….i am surely about to purchase those videos.

  • mh348 says:

    Thinking of buying it, how many gigs are all the videos together?

  • Mathew says:

    mh348 – Once you pay for the videos, you are given access to a direct download site where you download each video separately.

    Many of the videos give you a choice between High Definition (and large file size) and Medium Definition (smaller size).

    The total size of all my downloaded videos, with a mixture of HD and MD, was about 16gb. If I had chosen all HD, it would have been well over 20gb.

    It’s handy because you can download MD videos for quick viewing, and HD later for best quality.

    thanks bryce much appreciated, invaluable for me

  • Rodel says:

    a really big thanks…this will give me an additional knowledge in repairing laptops….God bless..

  • Jon says:

    They look great!

    Lenovo also has teardown video tutorials for their laptops.


  • Ivan says:

    It would be nice if the also sell those videos on DVD’s

  • Andrew Rost says:

    Thanks! When I first joined Technibble, learning about laptop repair was one of the things that made a post about. I think these videos will be very informative in helping me break in to the laptop repair field.

  • Landon says:

    I’m still debating on weather or not I want to get into laptop repair or not.

    For example I know a guy that has his own shop in an area somewhat close to me. He charges $65.00 an hour to repair in shop. I called him a while back and asked about the DC jack repair issue with an older compaq laptop. He told me if everything goes good he can do it in 2 hours (therefore costing $130), but he said he could run into complications making it take longer…therefore making the cost be above $200!! He basically came across as if he didn’t really wanna mess with it, but he will but no guarantees and charges are by the hour. You can’t be too crazy with pricing because new laptops are now getting in the $400 range and below.

    So I guess my biggest concern is if I put a couple hours time into a laptop and can’t fix it, I see the customer not wanting to pay anything or very little for diagnostics.

    How do you guys charge for stuff like this?? Do you do a flat rate and if its a nightmare job, then that’s just tough luck or do you actually go strictly by the hour no matter what??

    Personally I would have a hard time charging by the hour if a lot of time was consumed in learning how to tear apart the machine.

    For all you guys that are pretty experienced though, how do you handle this?

    By the way I watched the video and these videos sound awesome. I am thinking about getting them just for my own knowledge and everything, but would also like to make money doing it when I can.


  • JosephLeo says:

    I found these videos a little while ago. Nice to see them actually listed now, but then again I know that Bryce & Steve are friends so it shouldn’t come to a surprise that Bryce would link to such a reputable person.

  • ismet says:

    I am using Lenovo and unhappy with crapped vt support even though they supply video tutorials for fixing laptops.

  • mh348 says:

    Thanks Mathew. I sent them an email to see if I can get it on DVD, would like to have it in HD but 20gb is a bit big. I pay just under $1 usd (zar 70) per gig (broadband) here in South Africa. Is it a http download and how long do I get to download all the videos?

  • ben says:

    This is why I do not do laptop repairs, besides changing the HD, if someone needs an ac port fix I send them to http://www.bendburrows.com/?page_id=103
    who is also the creator UBCD4win

  • C6Gunner says:


    Is this a little self-promotion for your services? ;)

  • agruen says:

    In response to E Jones. He has an anti-static surface underneath the laptop, as well as one he is standing on. Therefore the need of a strap is not needed. I use these as I do not like the feel of the strap. There are more and more shops that use these as well.

  • rosseyg says:

    make sure you plan to download these videos from a fast connection, the .mov files themselves are very large

  • tomj001 says:

    I downloaded all of the videos and put the Medium-Def videos onto 4 DVD’s and from someone who is a novice and very interested in laptop repair, I would like to say “Thank You” to Steve, for providing these videos. All I can say now is; “GIVE ME MORE”.

  • "The" Ben says:

    I am “The Ben” and will honestly say that is just a coincidence. I do not do self-promotions of my services, I think it’s tacky. I am grateful for the plug though.

  • PR Tech says:

    I just got done watching these videos and learned many valuable tips. I will be utilizing these to assist with proper training of my employees as well. Thank you Steve and Bryce!

  • PC Repair says:

    Thanks for this video, its another addition to our tool box

  • marie bernard says:

    hello happy new year to you
    I’m studying accounting and I am in need of a laptop or pc. I appeal to your generosity and I assure you that the Lord will reward you a hundredfold. I’m not really afford to offer me.
    God bless you and thank you for all your suggestions


  • Fireflysrq says:

    These are awesome high quality videos!,
    I plan on buying a set as soon as possible so I can improve my repair skills.

  • Shane Fowler says:

    Videos can be very helpful when you are not familiar with particular model laptops yet. If anyone needs to know something about Sony Laptops let me know.

  • God, I hate soldering… That’s what interns are for ;)

  • Tom says:

    What I saw of the sample videos looked pretty good. The videos repeatedly freeze with no indication that they are buffering, I have no problem with videos elsewhere. The HD link just locks up as well, and there is no option to download. A few back and forth emails with Steve failed to resolve the problem. I’m pretty bummed, as I said, I liked what I was able to view.

  • HENRY says:

    The video is so fun and it help me to increase my skills,thanks!!!

  • ASHOK says:

    i am learning laptop repair so please provide me video link so i can lern more i will be very thankful to you.

  • Valrie Stine says:

    Damn, awesome website. I actually came across this on Ask Jeeves, and I am stoked I did. I will definately be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just absorbing as much info as I can at the moment.

    Thank You

  • pansiyon says:

    I am always scared to fix my laptop, so it is better to keep closed :D

  • notebook says:

    Thinking of buying it, how many gigs are all the videos together?

  • na says:

    just scrolled though the list, and thats all stuff i self taught by age 16. he says theres much more, but without knowing what im hesitant to buy it. why pay $55 to find out its stuff i already know? id rather spend that on teardown diagrams for specific laptops. dells and toshibas are easy but some hp, fujitsu, etc are a PITA to get apart

  • Great videos. However the motherboard swap out is a bit of a cheat, i’d lke to see more component level repair vids. A few places here in the UK do component level repair so I might see if they’d agree to do a few for the net, ou never know! :)
