I need to change my power supply in my HP Pavilion a705w, and the screws are on the back, the 4 main to the supply, but I'm on the other side of the power supply and I can't get in there to change it. How...


There should be at least 4 more larger screws, maybe even "thumb screws", that will have to be removed as well. These screws hold the sides of the case on. Try removing those and sliding the sides back to open up the case

I need to replace the glass display. i have disassembled and removed the screen. how do i remove the lcd from the plastic casing. i do not see any screws it is an hp pavilion dv1000.


There should be little tabs around the bezel of the display. Under those tabs are screws. Don't forget what screws go where for when you get ready to put it all back together.

How do you remove bad hard drive. Seems some screws are hidden.


They're not really hidden, they're just on the other side probably, which means you'll have to take the cover off the other side of the tower to get to it.

How to take apart hp ze5570us to see what is wrong with the plug socket for the charger? I have taken all screws out but the computer does not seem to be coming apart easily.


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.

Trying to open it up?!?


In addition to the screws visible outside the case, you need to get at screw(s) underneath the keyboard. By removing the hinge cover/speaker faceplate, you can remove the screws holding the keyboard in, and lift the keyboard out to get at the last screw(s).

How to remove the hard drive for pavilion ze5000?


First and foremost be sure it is off and the battery is removed.

To remove the hard drive on the hp pavilion ze5000 turn the laptop upside down.
On the end of the laptop next to the lid release is the hard drive.
It is secured by three screws.
Two are in plain site remove them as well as the hidden one.
With the laptop upside down facing you there is a rubber stop directly above the hood release switch.
Pry it out with a precision, very small, flat blade screw driver. After the rubber piece is removed unscrew the screw that it was hiding.
With the three screws removed you should be able to pull/slide the hard drive out.
