Not a 5000 but a 2100E ?

18 months old and motherboard has failed. Anyone have instructions on what screws you undo to pull apart, piece by piece ? I don't want to undo everything and see what happens.

Re: not a 5000 but a 2100E ?

You may find dissasembly guides on the internet. However I don't recomand you to dissasemble your laptop unless you have some experience with these kind of things. Also, from the years of computer service I can tell you that when laptops fail it is pretty serious. Naturally they have a lot of protections and failsafe mechanisms in case of internal failure. Can you explain your problem in detail? Maybe the motherboard isn't that ..dead.

Replace motherboard fujitsu e8020

You take the laptop apart. Completely apart. I mean every piece of it. And you better make sure you replace it with the exact board or you'll be sorry. You might as well get some cups and label them for all the screws you pull out so you'll know where they came from. You might want to have a digital camera handy to take pictures before you pull something out. And once you've got the motherboard taken you, you'll need to get the CPU out of the old motherboard and put it into the new one. You'll have to do the same with the HeatSink if the new motherboard does not come with one. And you will need to buy some Thermal Paste to put on the CPU and Heat Sink to make sure they don't overheat. After you've got it all done you'll have to put everything back. Now would be a good time to pray to Allah, Budah, God, Jehovah, Jesus or whoever it is you serve. Because You're gonna need it to hope it works :)

Dissamble asus ulcpc to access power supply

LOL, You need detailed instructions on how to disassemble a laptop? You do of course know that every model is different, right? Instructions would have to be high level or it would take a book to give you details. If you don't know what you're doing I suggest you take it to a computer repair shop. Actually taking the laptop apart is the easy part for the task you want to do. The hard part is desoldering the dc jack that is already on the motherboard and then soldering a new one in it's place. Desoldering and getting the old dc jack out is a task and if you put too much pressure on the motherboard you could crack it or break something off.

So to take it apart you take all the screws off the bottom of the laptop, remove the hard drive, remove the cd drive, remove the battery, remove the wireless card, remove memory. Some of the things we just removed might be secured with screws and some of them once they are removed will surely have screws that were under them that attaches to the motherboard. Then you have to turn the laptop over, remove the piece that is right above the keyboard that normally has the power button on it. Be careful, sometimes there is a cable attached to it. Then you remove the screws that hold the keyboard and carefully pull the keyboard out because it most definitely has a cable under it. Then you remove the lcd by removing screws from it's hinges, and remove the cable that plugs into the motherboard and carefully pull the wifi cable that runs from the lcd, then down under where the keyboard sat, and through a slot that gets it to the bottom of the motherboard. Once you remove the lcd, you start removing screws that hold the palmrest to the motherboard and when you lift the palmrest be careful because there are cables such as the mouse and touchpad under it. Then you start removing screws that have the motherboard attached to the bottom case. Once they are removed you can lift the motherboard out but be careful because there will be other cables attached to it that you'll have to take off such as the cpu fan cable, etc. One you have the motherboard out you might have to remove the heat sink and fan that is secured by screws and the head sink has a coat of Thermal Paste on it that you'll most likely want to replace otherwise you have the risk of overheating. Once all that is done, now you have to start desoldering to pull the old prongs out that was holding the dc power jack to the motherboard (this part alone will take well over an hour), Then pop the new jack in it's place and start soldering it. Then pray to God, Allah, Buddha, Jehovah or whoever it is you serve that you can put it all back together and that it works!!!!!

Button from laptop pulled off..need quick fix!!!!!!

The pieces snap into place if you place them correctly on the keyboard and press down until you hear them click together. You may need to pry one off to see the orientation of the white plastic piece that goes on first. Lay the piece like the one you just looked at and firmly press the key evenly on top of it until you hear the click sound. You may have to rock it a little to get it to fully engage. If it sticks down, take a paper click and gently pry it up and it should work fine.

Funky screen on Toshiba A200 laptop

Either its a failing video card or failing LCD and in either case it will be several hundred dollars just for the part.

Most non-gaming laptops have integrated video built-in to the motherboard.

If you have never taken apart a laptop I would strongly recommend against it as you will be dealing with about 80 screws, parts that are taped, glued, clipped together.

If you do decide to the manufacturers generally have a how to guide and taking apart their laptops.
For my own benefit when I repair laptops I lay out sever pieces of paper and label them like back of laptop, front, under keyboard, ect to keep track of screws since size does matter :) when it comes to the screws.

Hope this helps

Level of difficulty in installing new motherboard in dv1000 laptop?

Unless you are very comfortable working with computer hardware and have a good knowledge of your product I would recommend having a cerified tech replace a motherboard. It would be a level 8 I would say out of 10 with 10 being the hardest. Hope this helps.

DC jack broken

My computer repair company aka my username does this repair all the time. Here what you should get.
1. 30-watt iron
2. Light rosin solder ( i think Im using .028)
3. solder ******
4. desoldering braid
Here are some toshiba manuals
When taking apart the laptop I pretend a piece of paper is the laptop and I'll draw holes on the paper to represent the screw holes on the actual laptop and when I unscrew a screw I will take in onto my mock up paper. So I will have a paper for all the bottom screws, a paper for the top cover screws, paper for the motherboard screws etc.

When you finally get the motherboard out of the case, desolder the old jack(from the underside) use the solder **** first and then the braid. Once all 5(usually) pins are desoldered wiggle the old jack out. Then put the new jack in and solder it to the board (on the underside)

Help With Disassembly

You'll probably only break/crack the case on the corner that is hanging you up, but it could break more if something is hung up on a component or the MotherBoard itself. I would suggest trying to pry (with a very small flat screw driver) that corner apart carefully by applying pressure between the pieces of the case at and close to the corner in question see if it doesn't pop apart without breaking anything.
You must be positive that all attaching screws have been removed (their locations should be indicated my arrows on the case, you will sometimes find one under a removable cover (such as for RAM, Wireless Card, etc...) or a removable part such as an optical drive, the battery, or even under the keyboard on the top side (check everything again, just to be sure).
Good luck.
