    Run the items I have listed after downloading them. You should notice a performance improvement. You can also try disk defraging the harddisk as well

    click my computer.

    Right click on C:\ and select properties then tools then defragment now select the main harddisk from the list at the top then click the defragment button.

    Any questions or need more information let me know exactly what is going on.

Service manual

As your iMac is a slot loader it's very easy to replace the battery.
Sit the mac screen side down on a folded towel or something similar, with the base of the Mac facing you. With a flat-bladed screwdriver, prise open the oval shaped panel at the top - NOT the one with the big fastener in the middle! Under that panel you will see 2 sets of screws. Remove the outer two. leave the inner two alone.
Now, where the flip-out foot fits onto the case you will see 2 more screws just inside the foots moun ting. Remove those.
Now, pull the bottom off starting at the top so that it pivots at the bottom edge. you may have to side the shole thing towards the edge of the desk first. Keep pullingh/pivoting and suddewn;y the base with come free, It might make a snapping sound but don't worry. That plastic is tough. N ow look at the beautifull aluminium emf cage. you will see two more obvious screws close to where the foot pivot was. remove those. The next bit is a little tricky if you have stubby fingers. Look around the adge of the emf cage and you will see four much smaller screws . Two near the top and two just behind the loudspeakers. You have to remove these. Be careful as it is very easy to drop them inside the mac - even for experienced service techs. One you have the svrerw out, gently prise off the emf cage. It can be trickey and it sometimes catches sao just take care.
the battery is now eay to change.
Some folks recon they can change the battery through the RAM door. - yes they can - but more often than not they break the battery holder in the process. It's much safer to do it the proper way.
Putting it back together is just the rev erse - and you'll drop those little screws again.
If you do, pick the mac up and give it a shake - they always come out again.

How do u remove lcd inverter for dell vostro 1000

Pretty much every laptop is the same. Dell, HP, Gateway. Just use the same principles. Most have either rubber or plastic over the screws around the lcd plastic. Just find them, unscrew the screws and carefully pull the lcd apart. Video should give u an idea.

I want to replace a shot hard drive on a 20 inch imac. I have a 250GB Serial ATA hard drive. Anyone know the steps?

Well there a couple of torq or philips head screws on the botom you will have to turn they do not come out just a simple turn to diengage them,you will have to place the monitor area between your legs and rest the base on your legs as the base is heavier than the top.Once you have pulled these screws there is one cables that you will have to unplug and a ground wire you will have to remove from the chasis(one screw).This will allow you to completly remove the base.Now that you are in there carefully long at the wire orientation and the location of the hard drive.Remember as you replace the drive how the cables are placed as when you replace the botom cover you do not want to pinch any cables.
Good luck

Make sure all cables are disconnected. Make sure you are only undoing the three silver screws along the lower edge of the unit. (These are captive screws and should not be removed).There is one screw at each end and one in the middle. Tilt the cover up and lift it away from the computer.
