    Is the problem that the bottom of the case is removed? You can reattach that with a screwdriver.

    This is not the problem because it was dragged to the bottom of exactly the same.

    As the case is closed, the same.
    Does not solve the problem.

    ----------

    I changed the thermal grease under the GPU and CPU.
    Also did not help

    Sorry, I was being sarcastic with my first response.

    WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THE COMPUTER?

    You forgot to tell anybody what's wrong.

    You just linked to an extremely boring video that shows a partially disassembled computer.

    What are we supposed to do with this?

    Original style MacBook Air. One beep every 5 seconds indicates bad RAM. Unfortunately the RAM in all MacBook Air models is soldered and not replaceable. Therefore, the logic board would need to be replaced. And that would cost about as much as the machine is worth in the first place.

    You will be best off purchasing a new Mac/PC to replace it.

    So BGA (reballing) memory, should help?
    This is not a GPU?
