Re: Replace Screen on HP6515

Ok, to disassemble - remove four screws on back (#7 torx required). Then remove battery cover, battery, and SIMM card. Next peel the (on mine lower left portion of the) Warranty Void if removed sticker, and using a tiny phillips head screw driver, remove the screw revealed. Next, slide a thumbnail or plastic flatbldae screw drriver around the seam on the sides of the unit, to release the two pressure tabs on the sides and top. Then pull the top away, eventually freeing the bottom. Now, there is a system board exposed. There are three screws (tiny phillips again) two on the bottom and one at the top that can be removed, allowing the system board to be removed. Note that there are two ribbon connectors on one side - I didn't remove these. There's also a small plastic connection I did remove, then the system board will remove to the side allowing access to the back of the screen and keyboard assemblies.

My hp ipaq hw6515 does not read my Afghanistan's sim card

The IPAQ 6515 will only work with GSM Simm and network. It is also NOT 3G compatible.
You can verify that the 6515 is working with another network SIMM, then it is likely that your Simm card is not compatible and may in fact be design on Afghanistan's 'Analog' network.
Incidentally, the 6515 will also not work in Japan even with a working 'roaming' SIMM as the Japanese Mobile Network is also not compatible!
Hope it helps!

IPAQ 6515 doesn't recognize new HP 8Gig SD card when inserted. I reset but nothing happened. Any idea what the problem might be.

I am sorry?

You want me to give you my solution for nothing and want to charge me $9.95 for it.

I could not find any posted solutions when I checked your site.

IPAQ 6515 doesn't recognize new HP 8Gig SD card

Your 8 Gig card is a SDHC (HC=High Capacity) Card. All HC cards use a different format, which the 6515 can't use...

The biggest capacity the 6515 can use is 4 gig on the SD and 2 gig on the mini SD.

My 4g Transcend card and 2g Sandisk cards have been faultless for about 2 years now.

Sorry, but the 8 gig card is a wonderfull card, but is useless in a 6515
