Hi,I must mention you if you are not expert do not open the laptop or all in one PCs
why?because laptops have many screws inside and hidden,so you may break it up,this black bezel or paper is for:
THE HDD has an iron side this side must not touch with your normal hand(hands must have antistatic wrist band) and inside laptop cover GNDs(ground of circuits) because of ESD (electro static Discharge),
but if you insist:
1-try to open all screws behind and hidden of near the hdd
2-dont pull HDD up pull it to aside (left or right) then pull up
3-change the hdd
if you cant do that and still have problem try to search google for
GATEWAY ALL IN ONE (serial number) SERVICE MANUAL
download pdf or you can buy it, this Ebook have pictures that you can see how you can pull up your HDD,
kind regards

Power on but image on screen is very faint. What could the problem be?


HP monitors are renowned for having the inverters quit working. To repair the inverter you disconnect the power and if a laptop also remove the battery. Remove the plastic bezel (edge plastic around the screen), this can be done by lightly prying the plastic away from the screen, at the bottom of the screen just behind this plastic bezel you will see a small printed circuit board with 1 or 2 screws holding it in place with wires plugged into it, you will need an exact replacement part, the part numbers are printed on the board. Most boards are readily available for around $20 or less on Ebay. Carefully unplug the wires and screws, install the new board, attach wires, replace screw(s), snap bezel back in place making sure no wires get pinched, and you should be good to go. 30 minute fix for a novice.

Have a samsung 203b (R) C lcd monitor that i believe needs caps replaced cant figure out how to open case no screws probably just plastic clips holding bezel on


The case is held together with plastic finger hooks type setup, it goes together real easy but hard to separate. I use thin flat blade screw driver to crack it open starting at the center bottom edge and then work your way around, when you get the bottom, left and right side part way open, you will then lay it face down and then pull the back up, just watch out for the cable attached to the front bezel.

How to change bezel on Rolex Datejust


The bezel is secured by a Teflon gasket. To remove the bezel I would use a watch knife and gently press it in between the bezel and the case. Make sure you go straight in and it might not be a bad idea to use a layer of plastic around the knife so it doesn't leave marks. Also, do not use a widling motion. GO STRAIGHT IN. This will also prevent damage to the case and bezel. Repeat this several times working your way around the bezel. Be sure you don't continue to apply pressure with the knife once the bezel begins to come up as you don't want to damage the Teflon seal. Once you have the bezel out you will need to replace the Teflon seal the exact same way it came off on your replacement bezel and press back into place.

Fisher@paykel Intuitive eco comes up with code 130 what is it or how do we fix it


rotary position sensor fault. underneath the machine. Unbolt plastic cover with 16mm socket all of the plastic will come off. Undo four 10mm bolts around shaft. Pull off the big round thingy with cooper wire on it carefully. The purple wire is connected to the sensor which looks like a computer card and fits between the copper things ,pull up the sensor carefully and unpug the connection clean off the blue stuff on contacts,use electrical spray cleaner. Put back together in reverse.
Comments: Aug 03, 2009 - if it still doesnt work reset the machine by turning it off at the wall and waiting 2mins and start again. If that doesnt work the sensor may need replacing.

Need instructions to replace the bezel on a gateway 7330gz


Just like any other laptop LCD screen, edtechservic. Remove the rubber caps that cover the Philips head screws, remove the screws, and work around the bezel to pop it loose, a little at a time.

Top cover up, you are looking at the LCD screen. Look at the top Left and Right corners of the screen bezel. Look in-between. Now look along the bottom of the screen bezel. See those small rubber caps? G-E-N-T-L-Y pry them loose with a 60 or 90 degree pick. (In your computer repair kit)
Use care, and finesse! You don't want to scratch the clients laptop!
Now loosen, and remove the screws underneath.

Use a Jewelers flat tip screwdriver, (No.2), and ease it in the parting line, that you will see between the bezel, and top cover. Don't go more than a 1/4 inch in! You could be up against the LCD screen metal frame, if you go too far in. (Which could break the LCD screen)

Won't ease in there? Move over an inch or so. You could be hitting the plastic part of the bezel, that snaps down into the Top Cover.
There are several of these plastic protrusions, that stick down from the bezel, and snap into place in the Top Cover. Every few inches or so.

After you start easing one of these plastic snaps out, (Plastic protrusion I spoke of above), move along the edge, pick another place, and start easing it up. Keep bringing the edge up a little at a time. (Bring the back of the flat tip jewelers screwdriver down)
When you have gone along, and raised a large portion of the bezel, you should hear a distinct Click, as one of the plastic snaps come out of the Top Cover.
If not, move back to the first plastic snap that started to come out, and place your flat tip Jewelers screwdriver next to it. Bring the back of the screwdriver down to pop that plastic snap up, and out.

Hearing it your first time might make you a little stomach sick. You'll think you broke something! If you go along, and raise the bezel up a little at a time, you'll be okay. The bezel is made of space age plastic, and is VERY tough! You can't get crazy with it though!

When you have gone almost all the way around the bezel, the last few inches may just pop up, and out.

This guide is to completely replace the LCD screen. You can just use the information under the first five photos, for bezel replacement.
