Can not open my toshiba laptop


Ok, on a laptop you need to get some cups and label them toput the screws in so you will know where they came from. Remove the PowerCord, Remove the Battery then start removing all thescrews from the bottom of the laptop. Then remove all the devices fromthe bottom of the laptop such as the hard drive, the memory, dvd/cd drive,wireless card, etc. Take note of how the wires are on the wireless card,those are the antennas.

Look inside the battery case, hard drive case, memory case and dvd drive slotfor screw. Some screws on the bottom case in inside of some of the devicecases might have the icon of a keyboard next to it. Those screws hold thekeyboard in place.

Turn the laptop over, remove the strip that is just above the keyboard but becareful because a cable might be attached to it. Then remove the screwsthat hold the keyboard in place that are under where the strip was and gentlylift the keyboard out because there is definitely a cable under it.

Next you can remove the screws from the lcd hinges at the corners and lift thelcd screen off, also note that you will have to pull the antennas cable and thelcd cable when you remove the lcd.

Next start removing any screws that hold the palmrest in place. Take note ofany cables that are attached to the palmrest and remove them then lift thepalmrest off.

Next start removing any screws you see that hold the motherboard to the bottomcase, then lift the motherboard out an start replacing the fan.

How to change a cmos battery in a transport gx2 notebook?


You'll have to take the laptop apart to get to the cmos battery in most cases. It will be a silver battery about the size of a nickel on the motherboard. The most common size is CR2032. Also sometimes the battery will be in a vinyl covering and have a cable that attaches to a port on the motherboard. Which ever type you have you'll need to either remove the battery or unplug the cable and let the laptop sit for an hour or two. Then put it back, reassemble the laptop and reboot the laptop. With the CMOS battery out the computer will lose the date, time and password on some older models.

E8410 keyboard removal


Remove the power cord, remove the battery, turn the laptop over and remove any screws you see inside the battery compartment. Also look on the bottom and in the battery case for any keys that might have the icon of a keyboard beside them (they hold the keyboard in place). You might have to remove all the screws from the bottom case if the laptop's design does not have a separate strip that sits above the keyboard. Once you have the screws remove, turn the laptop over and open the lid. If there laptop has a strip above the keyboard, then pry it off gently because a cable might be under it. If it does not have a strip, but is all one big piece called the palmrest that surrounds the keyboard, then the keyboard might have little catches on the sides and at the top that you can move and wiggle the keyboard out. if not you will have to remove the palmrest. Also if you have the strip above the keyboard, once you remove it you might see screws that hold the keyboard then remove them.

Be careful when you lift the keyboard out, there is a cable under it that has to be removed from the board.

How to open keyboard of sony vaio pcg-6rfl


Remove the Power Cord and the Battery. Turn the laptop over and start removing screws from the bottom of it. There might be screws on the bottom that hold the keyboard, normally they will have the keyboard icon by them. Once you have the screws removed Look inside the battery case to remove any screws. Sometimes there will be screws that hold the keyboard and the strip that is above the keyboard inside the battery case.

Next turn the laptop back over and open the lcd lid. Remove the strip that is above the keyboard. Be careful because there might be a cable attached to the bottom of the strip. Once the strip is removed there might be screws that it was hiding that hold the keyboard so remove them. Now you can lift the keyboard out, but be careful because there is a cable attached to the back of the keyboard.

Removal of casing on HP nx8220


First of all remove all your components ie. RAM, hard drive, battery, CD/DVD drive etc. Sometimes there are screws located in the area where these components are located that secures the top and bottom halves of the case.
I suggest that as you remove the screws from the bottom of the case you take a note where the came from as some of the screws are different lengths.
There may be s strip panel between the top of the keyboard and the LCD screen, remove this first, it will be clipped in place and held with screws from the bottom of the laptop.
Next the keyboard should removed and keyboard cable.
Look closely for screws hidden behind plastic stick on covers, you need to use a sharp thin blade to lift off these covers to reveal the screws behind the covers.
The top and bottom halves of the case is usually held in place with plactic clips, start at an opening and carefully pull apart until a clip releases and the work along that edge to release more clips. Continue along each edge until you separate the case.
The LCD screen is usually secured with screws on the back edge of the laptop and possible with screws near the edge of the motherboard. Take care to disconnect the video connector.
The motherboard needs to be removed from the bottom half of the case so you can access the power connector.
Take careful note where you remove each screw as you need to put them back in reverse order.

Best of luck, have fun.
