After installing Windows 10: (1) homepage is too wide, (2) Word ribbon takes up too much space, (3) Chrome ribbon takes up too much space, (4) e mail is distorted (too wide).

It seems that you upgraded from windows xp. If you know how to change the resolution that might cure the problem. Windows 10 doesn't work very well with older video cards.
The interface is different so it is a bit difficult to guide you with instructions to adjust the video resolution

Hi , there is problem with my phone volume. I can


First of all, a temporary solution is for you to use a earpiece. You plug it on your phone and you will be able to hear the callers clearly.

If your phones main speaker is working, then it is the earpiece speaker that is bad. All you have to do is to replace the speaker with a new one. There are two speakers on this phone, one in front, which is the part where you get to listen to your callers from, then another speaker that plays your audio files and receive your calls on speaker mode.

To disassemble the phone, follow the steps below:
  1. Remove your back cover, battery, sim and memory card. Six screws need to be removed,
  2. Run something like a credit card around the join of the battery compartment to release it from the rest of the phone.
  3. Now remove the two screws and you'll be able to lift away the metal plate with the identification sticker on.
  4. A ribbon connector needs to be detached. This attaches like a plug and socket. Just lever it up to unplug. You can now lift the circuit board away from the rest of the phone.
  5. Remove the eight screws you can see. These screws hold the slide part in place.
  6. You can now lift the slide part away from the rest of the phone. Four screws now need to be removed. The two on the left are covered with black stickers which can be easily removed.
  7. Now run your plastic tool all the way round the join of the front cover in order to release it.
  8. Three ribbons need to be disconnected. The two left and right attach like a plug and socket. Just lever each up to unplug. The ribbon in the middle has a different connection. To release it just flick the black latch up and pull the ribbon cable away from its socket. You can now lever the LCD screen out of the front cover.
  9. Then you see the earpiece and where it is connected to, just disconnect it, replace it with a new one, then you reverse the process to reassemble the phone back together.
Take care and good luck.

NB: When making a call, do not put it on speaker yet, then you increase the volume from the side of the phone where you have the volume button. If you do not hear the person calling you, then you replace the earpiece with the steps above.

HP Pavillion dv6110us Speakers not working

The sound power comes through a ribbon cable to the power button,along with the power supply switch wiring. This "power ribbon cable"( part # 431437-001) has frayed where it connects to the motherboard.
The new cable will cost you about $5 with free shipping on ebay and takes about 10 minutes to replace.
You can find step by step instruction on the repair by searching "dv6000 power ribbon removal".

Screen broken

you need a new lcd screen.

Replacing the upper screen is by far the hardest to fix, it requires you to feed the LCD ribbon through a hole ¼” wide, you also need to be able to desolder and resolder the speakers on the new LCD ribbon, then feed the new ribbon back through the hole, it’s not that easy.
