Gateway bios password reset


You'll have to open your case to do it.
1) Shut computer down.
2) Unplug computer power cord - IMPORTANT!
3) Wait a minute or so for all power to be dissipated. (Capacitors hold charge for a while even after shutdown.) This is for your safety, and to keep anything from happening to your computer.
4) Open case. The side is usually held on by 2 or 3 screws. Usually Phillips, could be knurled finger type. Open side by sliding back an inch or so. Then pull side away from case.
5) Look for a small plastic piece, about 1/8" x 1/4" looking from top. It should be on 2 of a set of 3 pins on the motherboard. There should be a label on the motherboard saying "reset" or "PW Reset" or "Password" or "bios reset", depending on which version of motherboard you have.
6) Lift the plastic piece up, noting which 2 of the 3 pins it is on first.
7) Put it on the other end of the set of 3 pins, using the middle pin over. (You are changing from one outer pin to the other outer pin.)
8) Put the power cord back in the power supply. Push the start button. Just a second will be plenty long.
9) Remove the power cord, waiting again for all power to dissipate.
10) Put the plastic piece back on the original 2 pins. Put case back together. Put power cord back, and turn on. The bios password will be removed.

How to slave the hard drive


You must go to BIOS setup and follow the steps.God bless youHowever follow this steps:

Instructions
1
Remove the screws on your computer case and slide the cover off of the machine. Notice the hard drive bays in the front of the machine. The existing hard drive is installed in one of these bays.


2
Use the tweezers to set the jumper pins to "Slave" mode. The jumper pins are white connectors located on the back of the hard drive. Above the jumper pin section on the hard drive is the schema to set the drive to "Slave."




3
Insert the hard drive into the computer case bay underneath the existing drive. Screw in the drive and mount it to the case using the screws included with the hard drive packaging.


4
Connect the hard drive cable from the main hard drive to the secondary slave drive. There are two connectors on the hard drive cable. The very end of it is inserted into the main hard drive. The middle connection is used for the slave drive. Insert this secondary, middle connector into your newly installed drive.


5
Insert one of the power supply cables into the back of the hard drive. This supplies electrical power to the device.


6
Replace the case cover back onto the machine. Ensure you replace the screws to properly fasten it to the computer case.

Pavilion dv4 1431us how to remove the hard drive. Don't know which section is the hard drive screw to unscrew.


The Battery Compartment Cover is to the outside.
(By the way. Have all power sources removed from the laptop. The AC adapter {Charger}, and the Battery)

Laptop upside down, face the Battery Compartment to the top.
The long middle cover in the middle, under the Battery Compartment Cover is the Harddrive Compartment Cover.

On the Left side of the Harddrive Compartment Cover are two screws to remove. One in each outside corner.
After the screws are removed, lift up on the Left side to remove the cover.
(They may just loosen to a loosened state, and not actually remove)

The Harddrive Compartment Cover is 'hinged' on the right side, with a couple of plastic tabs coming from the cover itself. After it is tilted up far enough so that these tabs will come free from the slots they're in, the cover can be removed.

There are 3 screws which hold the Harddrive Caddy in place. (The Harddrive is mounted to a sheet metal Caddy, which goes across the top of the Harddrive, and down each side)

The first screw is in the Middle to the Left outside.
The other two screws are on the Right, and are on the corners.

After removing the screws you will see a Black strip of cloth/plastic coming from the Left side of the Harddrive/Caddy combo.

The Harddrive is eased up slightly on the Left side, and pulled to the Left side with the strip of cloth/plastic.
(On the Right side of the Harddrive is the interface. The pins that come out of the Harddrive. These pins insert into a female socket in the laptop)

The Caddy around the Harddrive is mounted to the Harddrive with 4 screws.
Two on EACH side.
Holding the Harddrive in the direction it came out of the laptop, (Interface pins to the Right), look at the mounting screw on the Right side.
The one that goes through the sheet metal Caddy, and fastens it to the Harddrive.

Now look at the same screw on the Left side. It goes through a tab.
Remove these screws, and DON'T loose them, or mix them up with the other screws.
(Use a multi-compartment container. You can use a clean egg carton in a pinch)

Remove the screws from the other side.
Install the new harddrive in the Caddy, then install the Harddrive/Caddy assembly in the laptop.
DO NOT overtighten the screws.

Finding information to aid replacing cpu cooler


Yes, some do come with push pins like that instead of screws so that it is easily removed and installed also. Usually the push pin ones are cheaper. The cpu and heat sink are compatible by cpu socket type.

I need to remove the cd drive from my emachines t5224.


Are you trying to remove the entire drive? or just a CD from inside the drive?

most CD drives have a pin-sized hole just below the drive tray (where you insert the CD) which will cause the drive to eject the tray as long as it is powered.

removing the drive itsself is not overly difficult either.
--Simply power off your machine, unplug it from the wall and wait a few minutes for any residual capacitance to bleed off (general safety precaution).
--Then open the outer case (normally held on by thumb screws or hex screws, you may need a screwdriver to do this)
--once the case is open/off, locate the CD drive inside the machine. simply unplug any cables AT THE DRIVE (do not unplug any cables at the main board unless you really know what you're doing or have to because often there are multiple things plugged in there and you could cause a more serious problem by doing so.)
--after everything is unplugged from the drive, locate the mounting screws and remove them (sometimes they are clips, other times screws or hex bolts). this will allow you to remove the drive itsself from the case.
--once the drive is out, put the case back on the machine and plug everything back in and you'll be good to go minus one CD drive.

hope this solution helps you, and please do not forget to rate me.
