SOURCE: bios password

I had the same problem, with a friend's laptop, an acer aspire 5630.
I unscrewed everything I could but failed to find the cmos battery
I reset the password by shorting out jumper 3 on the motherboard.
this is to be found under the memory modules which can be accessed by removing the largest of the access plates found on the bottom of the unit.
(you may want to ground yourself first in case of static)
Pull gently outwards on the two retaining clips at the edges of the memory module(s), this should allow them to spring up for easy removal.
jumper 3 looks like two gold interlocking number threes - this design makes it easy to short out by touching lightly with a metal object - I used a small phillips screwdriver.
Good luck

SOURCE: How do I disable double-click on an HP Pavilion dv4 touchpad?

Hi there Dublin. I recently bought a HP laptop myself, and I believe I can help your situation, or at least I hope I can. Here's what you do: Access your Control Panel>Click Mouse>Click Device Settings>Click Settings> Click Tapping> Click Disable Tapping. That should do the trick. You are not disabling your touch-pad, just the double-clicking that is associated with it. Drove me nuts for about a day, 'til I figured it out..Hope it worked for your notebook.

SOURCE: Repair manual for HP Pavilion dv6 1245 dx

Go to Click on support and drivers tab. Select "See Support & Troubleshooting Information." Enter your laptop model number. dv6-1245dx. Click on "GO". See: "What Type Of Support Do You Need?" Choose MANUALS. Scroll down the page and select "HP PAVILION DV6 ENTERTAINMENT PC - MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE GUIDE". Download that PDF format. It is relatively easy to get to the ribbon cable that connects the touchpad to the motherboard. It is connected via a ZIF connector. I had a dv1331se and the touchpad stopped working. I just reseated the cable in the connector and all was well. Hope your solution is as easy as mine was. You'll have to remove the trimplate just in front of the keyboard. Be careful with the connectors there. The manual is well laid out and the diagrams easy to follow. Good luck. HP Pavilion dv6 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

How to Install Laptop Memory

Intermittent power fail/boot-up power fail/freezing


1) Motherboard cracking.
2) Harddrive has a loose connection. Needs to PHYSICALLY be plugged in tighter.

All along a motherboard are what is called Circuit Traces. (Also known as Signal Traces)

Think of them as very thin flat copper wires.
Motherboard may be cracked, and circuit trace/s are cracked/broken. Makes an intermittent contact.

Let's look at the motherboard, and with no hardware components on it,

Motherboard installed in laptop case, the Processor, and Ram Memory are on the Top of the motherboard.
Below the main view photo shown, are three small views.

The small view to the far Left shows the Top of the motherboard. The pink rectangle is the Processor socket, (Socket S1), and below it is the graphics chipset.

Click on this small view. (Becomes main view)

Primary Ram Memory is on the Top of the motherboard, under the Keyboard.
Expansion Ram Memory is on the Bottom of the motherboard.
Memory Compartment Cover)

Now turn the motherboard photo to the Left 90 degrees.
This is how it sits in the laptop.

Note the large White label with all the writing on it, and the black rectangular chipset above it, that has Intel on it.

The long blackish/gray looking object above the Intel chipset, and connected to the outside edge of the motherboard; is where the harddrive plugs in.

The Harddrive is secured by one single screw. (Front of harddrive)
After the two screws for the Harddrive Compartment Cover are removed, and the Harddrive Compartment Cover, you can see this.

ALL power removed, (AC adapter { Charger}, and Battery), remove the harddrive compartment cover, and the single harddrive mounting screw.
Use the piece of silk flap, and see if you can plug the harddrive in tighter. Replace the mounting screw, and cover.
(Plus plug power back in)

Suspect cracking of the motherboard, at an area where the harddrive's connector on the motherboard, meets the motherboard.

Replace motherboard, (Unless you want to try using small wires as jumper wires, to connect broken circuit traces)

Could I be wrong? Yes.
Check for loose connections, then if no, completely disassemble the laptop down to the motherboard in hand, (Wearing an ESD wrist strap), and check for broken circuit traces

Removing back cover of hp dv 6915nr

Back Cover?

1) Display Cover: The plastic cover that is on the opposite side of the LCD screen. Sometimes referred to as Top Cover.

Display Assembly is removed from laptop first, then LCD screen assembly is removed from the Display Cover.

2) Base Enclosure: The plastic bottom part of the notebook.
A laptop is disassembled from the Top down to the Bottom.

The bottom 'cover' (Base Enclosure) is not removed first. It is last.

3) There is no back cover per se. Half of the cover for the back (Bottom half) is part of the Base Enclosure. The top half is part of the Palm Rest.

(The back has the Vent in it)

[Use the dv6700 service manual. Go down to the subheading HP Pavilion dm1 (dm1 is in blue)
Scroll to the right, click on dv6700. Note that it is a PDF file, and may take up to 30 seconds, before you see the first page come up ]

What is it you are trying to do? What hardware component are you trying to access?

Post back in a Comment.


Display assembly is removed. Palm Rest Cover is removed, and so on.

S7310n disassemble

This is HP Support, and the download page for the Upgrading and Servicing Guide,

On this page scroll down to - Upgrading and Serving Guide, and left-click on it.
(Second file listed)

This is a PDF file download. The computer you are using has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the Upgrading and Servicing Guide, file name, you will Not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds, or so.

Be patient, as the file is downloading in the background.

The Upgrading and Servicing Guide tells you, and shows you, how to open the computer case. (Page 7)

Barring that you are not able to download this PDF file, I will attempt to tell you how to open the computer case. (If you are using a Dial Up network connection, you may be as old as me, before the file downloads)

1) Computer off unplug the power cable FROM the surge protector. (Not shouting)
THEN unplug the power cable from the back of the computer. (Power Supply)

Now unplug all cables connected to the computer.

2) Lay the computer on a towel on top of a table. Keeps the table, and the computer from being scratched.
Lay the computer on it's Right side. (Computer facing you, the right side is to the right. Hey, don't laugh, lol!)

Loosen and remove the three computer cover screws, on the back of the computer's case.

The computer cover that removes is an L shape. It comes down the Left side from the top, and wraps under the bottom.

Looking at the Top/Back of the computer, there is a screw to remove on the Top, of the Left side of the computer case. (Top/Left side corner)

Looking at the Bottom/Back of the computer, there is a screw to remove from the Bottom, of the Left side.
(Bottom/Left side corner)

Looking at the Bottom/Back of the computer, there is a screw to remove from the Bottom, of the Right side.
(Bottom/Right side corner)

After these three screws are removed, the Left side of the computer cover is slid back about 1/2 inch, (1.25cm), and lifted straight up.

BEFORE you reach inside! (Not shouting)

Your body carries STATIC electricity.
Static can fry out, (Short Circuit), the hardware components inside the computer.

TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve your body of Static electricity.
If you get up, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again.

Now, do you wish to disassemble this desktop computer completely, or just remove, and replace a few hardware components?

The above Upgrading and Serving Guide from HP Support tells you, and shows you,

1) How to remove, and replace the computer cover

2) How to remove, and replace Ram Memory

3) How to remove, and replace an optical drive.
(CD/DVD Drive)

4) How to remove, and replace a PCI card, that is in a white PCI expansion slot, on the motherboard.

5) How to remove, and replace the CMOS battery

6) How to remove, and replace a Harddrive

Should you need further disassembly guidance, let me know in a comment.

Hp pavillion dv6-1030us just order my new screen how do i take the front and back bezel off looking for a video link not finding all the screws on front thanks

The procedure to replace the display is outlined in the maintenance and service guide.

Refer to the Display Assembly beginning on page 81 for the "complete" disassembly instructions.

The maintenance guide gives you step by step procedures to remove the monitor and most importantly... how to remove the bezel "properly".

Need to clean HP s7410n of dust

Look in you manual or download one from here, if you don't have one.
Take a look at page 3 (or page 7 of the pdf file) and you can see a nice description on how to take the cover off.
You have to slide the cover back first, before you can actually take it off.

Enjoy the housecleaning!

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
