That would be for an AOpen AX4SPE-UN motherboard, because it has a Socket 478 processor socket.

I had it happen to an old mobo in the past, with a Socket 478 processor socket; and no clips.

I used a straight piece of coat hanger, and went from hole to hole, on one side.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/P4-Socket-478-Intel-CPU-Retention-Retainer-Bracket-/140647148266?pt=US_Fan_Heatsin_Brackets_Accs&hash=item20bf392aea

Had a slight bend in the middle, and this bend went partially across one side of the finned Heatsink.

Small piece of coat hanger again, on the other side.
Cut to the right length, and with the correct bend, the two pieces of coat hanger, put even pressure down on the finned Heatsink.

Problem is they twisted. The pressure on the bent part against the Heatsink, made them want to spin up away, from the Heatsink.
So I added a piece of coat hanger on each side, to keep the side coat hanger pieces from twisting.

Hard to explain, and looked like something from Dr.Frankenstein's laboratory.

Worked though.

(Too much pressure, and it will break the plastic retention bracket on the motherboard.
Not even pressure on both sides, and Heatsink will not sit flat on Processor. This = No.
You just have to 'dial it in', (Coat hanger pieces), or use the correct part/s)

Testimonial: "Hallo Joecoolvette, Thanks alot for your answer. My problem is on the small chipset with the smaller "AOPEN" cooler. There is two clips-holders and a bracket that fit in to each clip-holder. I am not sure I use correct Words.. Anyway one of the clip-holders are missing, and thats the one I am looking for a solution on, I will go to an Electronic shop tomorrow and let them have a go at it.."

Alert! Chipset Heatsink not detected. System halted! is the alert that comes up when I turn my computer. What can I do?


Hi scotteg71121...

The alert is caused by a loose chipset heat sink.
Dell has a self test that prevents further damage by halting the system and displaying the message Alert! Chipset heat sink not detected. System Halted.
The solder joint seems to fail from constant tension and heat.
If you find the missing clip inside the computer you can solder it back in place and reattach the chipset heat sink wire hook.
If you can't find the clip you can replace it by bending a thin piece of wire in a half circle.
You can see a picture of where the clip goes on your computer motherboard by following the link below.

CMOS SETTINGS CANNOT SAVED


Try changing the CMOS battery.

Go to any half decent supermarket or electronics store and ask for a CR2032 coin cell battery.

open your computer case and find the exact same battery somewhere on the motherboard and change/swap them over. There should be a silver retainer clip holding the battery in to its housing, release this clip and insert new battery.

Oil cooler above oil filter is leaking how do you get off and fix it. The two line's will not come off


There is a spring clip that holds them in. If you buy a new line assembly, they usually come with a plastic tool to release the clips. Once the clips are released, you usually have to pull and wiggle the line to get it to come out of the fitting.

Oil cooler line replacement on a 1998 Suburban How to get the lines off of the oil pump


Ok...answer to the question about how to remove the oil cooler lines from the oil filter housing. Once you remove the oil cooler line, either upper or lower (Or both) from the radiator. By the way, I have a 98 GMC suburban 2wd 1500, I was able to just remove the fan housing and unbolt the fan by the four bolts behind the blade, this gave me the room to remove bottom half of fan shroud.
Once lines disconnected from radiator, there is a retainer clip that holds the hose into the nut that is screwed into the oil filter housing. I doused the nuts with WD40, then removed the clip with a screw driver. BE CAREFUL not to let the clips get away from you because it would be a pain to replace. Autozone does not carry nut nor clip!!!!! The hoses are held together by a clip and attached to a bracket as you follow the line toward the front of the truck.
Once clips are removed, tug on each line individually away from the nut screwed into the oil filter housing and wahlaa. Remove the nut and clean all the old teflon tape off with a steel brush and WD40. I reinserted the clip back into the nut and with the new oil line in my hand, pressed the line into the nut with the clip in place. This way you can see how the nut and clip lock the hose in place. Enjoy and I hope this helps you out.
Oh.....use teflon tape on the radiator treads as well as the oil filter housing threads. Install starting at the radiator housing. Snug the bolt (1' 1/16" socket) with the retainer clip inserted.

Clothes get caught between drum at front of dryer


the drum has either worn out its felt(front), a fabric bearing, or the roller(rear) bearings, or both, and dropped enough to make a gap. new rollers are3 about $15 /pair, felts between $13 & $90 depending on model.
Generic replacement is simple, and really while you got it apart, do both, the strain of twisting off axis will make the remaining good end fail shortly
The generic steps may not be correct for the actual dryer model.
