Question about Samsung SpinPoint M40 MP0302H (729507523354) Hard Drive

1 Answer

Totally dead. Suspect processor blown - but can't open case despite removing all screws in sight.

Anyone known how to open a Samsung M40 laptop? I've undone every screw in sight but it still seems to be held together at the back. Also suspect I need a new motherboard, but none seem to be available. Shame to throw it away, in perfect condition otherwise and a great PC.

How to remove casing

This depends on the laptop. On some laptops the casing is simply clipped together and it is just a case of being careful, others it is a case of the screws are hidden underneath circular suspension pads which are no bigger than a nail head and help to allow airflow underneath the laptop. If this is the case try removing one with a flat head screw driver to see if you find a screw. Other laptops the screws are in plain sight, some laptops are relay annoying though they have no screws and no clips and are literally heat sealed together. You will know if you have a laptop like this because you will not be able to see a thin line the size of the edge of a piece of paper around the side of the laptop. To open a laptop like this use a flat head bit for a soldering iron at 55 degrees c and go around the sides of the laptop were you would expect the line to be and it just opens up.

Caution: Fumes given off from the plastic on laptops are HIGHLY TOXIC always do this when using a high power extractor fan or in open air.

How do i open up the case for a BENQ FP567s LCD monitor to check if the fuse is blown or not? there is no power going through to the LCD....Is there anyone out there that can help tell me how to open up...

Can't say I am familiar with that exact model, but usually there are screws hidden under name plaques and other glued-on paper. Then usually the edges have tabs that "hook" under the opposite edge so even after you get all the screws out you have to insert something to unhook the tabs. But before you do all that, I have not seen many fuses inside a monitor.

If you are not sure what you are doing, it would be a lot better if you put it back together and called a pro to clean it for you, at least it will work when you get it back.

How do i completely remove the back cover?

If I were you, I would first try a system recovery as it has crashed.
What's an inverter? Does it mean you have connected the power supply with wrong polarity? I dont think you need to open it.
