  2. Hello, I have a question. It turns out that my HP Specter 13 is getting really hot (especially when it’s plugged in), I feel like one of the fans isn’t sucking .. is that normal? I’m thinking of opening it, cleaning it and maybe changing the thermal paste. Will serve?

    1. Yes, you can remove the heat sink and fan, use a brush to clean the dust on the fan, and use a rag to clear the old thermal paste on the heat sink (CPU and GPU), then apply new thermal paste to your CPU and GPU, This will significantly reduce the temperature of your laptop.

  3. hello, is there any way to take apart the LCD/keyboard/cover assembly of the HP Spectre 13 Pro? I have a busted LCD screen but the rest is ok and I don’t need to buy an entire assembly. I’ve taken apart plenty of phones and tablets before so I think it’ll be possible to repair by myself. thanks.

    1. Replacing the display cable is a very complicated job, so you need to remove the LCD back cover, and the LCD screen, then disconnect the display cable from the LCD screen, and then remove the back cover of the notebook and disconnect the other end of the display cable from the motherboard, if you are not a professional technician, it is not recommended that you replace the display cable yourself.
