Question about ASUS B50A-A1 P8400 Notebook

1 Answer

Unscrewed lids do not open, what's the trick?

To install more RAM and change the HDD I need to open the respective covers. But unsrewing them does not help. Prying close to breaking point does not either. Any suggestions or experiences to share? The Asus manuals do not help at all. Thank you.

Its really tricky to open no-screw windows of laptop back cover. It just snaps into place and be sure to used pointed and the slimmest flat screw driver. Sometimes, hidden screws are beneath the stickers.
Good luck

Take out the battery and do a power drain.
Restart the notebook and try to go to BIOS.
If unable to go to BIOS, turn off the notebook and turn it upside down, you will see a lid wich has round disc like symbols, open it and take out the HDD and put it back in, close the lid. Then open a lid which has a rectangular structure and then reseat the RAM, close the lid after the reseat. Restart the notebook, if not then you need to send it for repair. Also confirm if you are able to get lights ON on it.

My printer keeps saying Cover Open and won't let me do anything else


Hi All printers have a protruding piece of plastic on the cover / lid, when out of place it tells the printer the cover is open

When you close lid it is inserted into main frame which tells the printer that the lid is closed.

Look for this it may be damaged. If so roll a small piece of paper and insert ito the recepticle hole.

It will trick printer that the lid is now closed.

You will need to remove it each time you need to change inks etc...

Good Luck!

How easy is it to install RAM into a new sony vaio VGN NR110 laptop


Hi,

Most current laptops have a lid/panel underneath the bottom covers hiding the memory. You need to turnover the laptop and visual inspect the bottom panel/cover. Memories often are readily accessible to the user. They are underneath a lid/panel which is roughly squarish about 2 X 2 inches. It is normally held in place by small screw(s). Upon screw removal, you need to pry open the lid cover to expose the memories. Pressing sideways on the 2 retaining clips of the memory would pop it out slightly which should then be relatively easy to remove.Popping in new memory is the reverse. Diagonally insert the new memories into the slots to initially set them in. Gently but firmly press on the memories downwards to lock them in place. You will notice that the 2 retaining clips will automatically lock in place.

Alternately, for a few more, you can purchase the memory from any computer shop/store and ask them to install hereby assuring yourself that the job was done right. Further the store will not have any excuse/reason when the new memory malfunctions and can be readily replaced.

Of course yo can do it yourself, it is relatively a simple job and if you are willing to take the risk (very minimal), go for a DIY (do-it-yourself).

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
