Don't keep on them! These sounds are maybe because of moving parts in the hard drive
Place your laptops only on a flat insulative surface.

Dell battery plugging point bent...urgent help needed


You are going to have to have that plug in piece re-done with a new piece on the mother board soldered. Who ever told you to remove pieces was way wrong. Now as a result your going to have to have this done or you will not be able to use the laptop. Those pieces are meant to give you better support for the plug in and are also the ground. Take it in and have it done professionally. I would not mess with it anymore.

To install the key on your laptop keyboard, start out by observing the metal plates on the keyboard.

Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard. The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.

I have a advent 7201.it will not come on on its own and it will not come on when the charger is plugged in.the green light is on on the charger but no power on the laptop.could it be the battery or th


Use a multimeter.

An economical unit can be purchased for as little as $8 to $12.
Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.
Analog or digital is fine.

The Red probe lead is the Positive lead. Plug it into the hole with the red circle, on the multimeter.

The Black probe lead is the Negative lead. Plug it into the hole circled with a black ring., on the multimeter.

The center knob is the Function knob.
Set it to DC Voltage.
If just a symbol is shown, set it to the dotted line over a solid line symbol.

If there is more than one DC Voltage scale, set it to the 0 - 50 Volt scale.

The plug of the AC adapter (Charger) that plugs into the laptop, has a center hole, and an outside cylindrical metal shell.

The center hole is Positive.
The outer cylindrical metal shell is Negative.

Positive probe lead to the center hole, then touch the Negative probe leads to the cylindrical metal shell.

You should be reading 19 Volts, or VERY close to it.

Also have an assistant gently wiggle this cable, while you are testing.
Have them wiggle the power cable TO AC adapter, also.

An intermittent reading indicates a broken wire, or wires. Discard AC adapter, obtain a good one.

http://www.thelaptoppowersupplyshop.co.uk/advent-7021

The port on the laptop that the AC adapter (Charger) plugs into, is the DC Power Jack.

AC adapter checks out it's on to the DC Power Jack.
Post in a Comment if you wish to go on with the diagnosis.

My Toshiba Satellite c655 turns on but after about 1-2 minutes it becomes unresponsive. The mouse will move but nothing responds. HELP!!!


I believe Kim that the inside of your laptop is dirty.

The inside hardware components of a laptop are cooled by air.
If dust/dirt/hair/food crumbs/lint/etc is clogging the cooling system, the Processor will overheat.

The Processor is the 'Brain' of the computer.
If a Processor gets too hot, it turns off. (BIOS turns it off, actually)

This is a fail safe feature built into the Processor.
Keeps the Processor from burning up.

Let me show you how to partially disassemble the laptop, in order to clean it,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-C650-C655/disassemble-toshiba-laptop-1.htm

You will also need to;

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery

2) Buy and wear an ESD wrist strap. (Electro Static Discharge)
Average cost is around $3 to $6.
One example,

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

Connect the alligator clip to a good ground source.

{ I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case.

Not everyone has these laying around. ( I see no need for an Anti-Static Mat )
If the table you're working on has metal table legs, connect to an unpainted surface of one of them.

Barring none of the above is available, at least place a large metallic object on the table, and connect to it.
Perhaps a large metal serving tray, (Unpainted), or a large metal knickknack. (Unpainted }

3) Use a multi-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

If no multi-compartment container is available, substitute with a clean egg carton. Label each egg holder.

4) Make a record as you disassemble. Make notes, and drawings.
Use a digital camera, or video camera, if available. (Use good lighting)
(Phone cameras leave a lot to be desired, IMHO)

Along with the pictorial guide, a personal guide can come in real handy, in case you are interrupted.

Referring back to the pictorial guide, there are 3 pages.
You are on Page 1.
Access to the other two pages can be achieved by going to the Top of the page, or the Bottom.

Page1::Page2::Page3::Find another model (In white)

Complete Steps 1 through 24. Then STOP.
You can access the Fan Assembly, and the inner workings of the laptop.

In Step 24 you are shown the Fan Assembly - Removed.
This allows you to thoroughly clean the Fan Assembly, and the finned Heatsink next to it.

[ The copper Cooling Tube, and the Heatsink, are joined together. Removal is to remove the motherboard. They are mounted TO the bottom of the motherboard.

Not suggested, as you will have to clean the small metal plates on the Cooling Tube, and the top of the Processor, and top of the graphics chipset.
Then reapply fresh, new thermal paste.

HOWEVER, after time the thermal paste WILL dry up. It may need replacing. See if you have a computer savvy friend who may help you with this, or post back that you wish a step by step procedure ]

How to repair laptop key


If your keys fell off from your keyboard, you can easily repair it by following the installation guide below.

You should have a key cap, one large and one small plastic pieces (retainer clips).

To install your key on your laptop keyboard, start out by observing your metal plates on the keyboard.

Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard. The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.

Take the larger plastic piece, it must have two larger sticks at either sides that are going to click onto the larger metal hooks on the keyboard.

Take the small plastic piece. It must have a small bar on one side that is going to click onto the smaller single metal hook on the keyboard.

Place the smaller piece on the larger piece and insert its sticks to the holes of larger piece. Make it one piece.

Put the plastic piece into the metal holes on the keyboard. Push it evenly to insert completely. Get a thin object or blade and stretch the plastic pieces so that it clicks together.

Take your letter key, put it in the middle and push down evenly from all four sides.

That's all.

How to remove my aspire5738z screen from my laptop


1) Remove ALL power to the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) Work on a table, follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions: Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) computer hardware components. Relieve your body of Static, Before working on the laptop.

The best method is to use an ESD wrist strap, and connect it to a good ground source.
(Electro Static Discharge. The best ground source is an ESD Anti-Static Mat.
I connect the alligator clip to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case)

Average cost is $3 to $5, and they can be found in a multitude of stores.
Example of an ESD wrist strap,

http://www.zeph.com/esdwriststraps.htm

Second best method? (Arguable)
Set a large metallic object on the worktable, and touch it before you begin.
{Large metal serving tray? Large metal knickknack?)
If you leave in the middle of working on your laptop, be SURE to touch the metallic object again upon your return.

Here is the download page for a free Service Manual in PDF file format,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

On this page go to the heading that starts with - Aspire 1200.
Now down to the line that starts with - 5738DZG, and then to the third one over - 5738Z
Left-click on 5738Z.

This is a PDF file. It may take 30 seconds before you see the first page come up, and additional time may be needed for the file to fully download.

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
This is the page number I will be referring to, and not the actual manual page.

I have a inspiron 1525 which keeps blanking the screen. Lately I have noticed that although the screen is blank if youlook closer, you can see the desktop. I have managed to close the machine down. I have...


First try connecting an external monitor to the 15 pin VGA port on the left side of the laptop. You may have to hold down the function key and the key to switch the video signal from the laptop to external monitor ( look for the key that has a pic of a monitor).
If the video appears normal on the external monitor then your LCD display panel needs to replaced.
As for overheating you can boot from a CD/DVD disk that you should have received when you purchased the laptop.
To do this Select the "Run the32 Bit Dell Diagnostics". Select "Custom Tests". You can then select individual tests such as CPU fan.
The CD disk will have "Diagnostics and Utilities" under contents along with "Device Drivers".
