    Also- the computer is a "tower" type.

    my USB ports are so loose that they went back out of sight.. I want to open the front up to retrieve them and fix it. How can I open it? It can't be reached by removing the side cover.

You must replace the timing chain and the tensioner assembly as well as any other parts that you find worn such as sprockets and guides. All this requires special tools and the timing cover to be removed.

I have a gateway zx4800-03 and I need to know how to remove the hard drive to put in a new one


I removed one on a Gateway ZX4800-02. Remove two screws by the usb ports on the back. then remove the plastic piece covering the usb ports on the back. This will expose the HDD. Now to make it easier. remove the four screws holding the support bracket and remove support bracket. remove the three screws holding the HDD located up, right, and left. Now disconnect the HDD cable by pull it to the right by the connector. DO NOT PULL THE CABLES. My friend does that by habit all the time and it drives me crazy.

HDD should come out easy. Just remove the metal cage covering the HDD and Replace. Reverse order for reassembly.

Now does anyone know how to get off the damn front bezel!>!!?!?!?!? I can't figure it out.

How to remove the top cover and right side cover (closest to MB) on Gateway DX4300-22. Have left side cover off and both side and top rear screws removed(6). The right side will slide back from the...


Gateway is notorious for putting hidden clips towards the front face of the computer. Look for plastic push tabs along the inside of the front of the computer. If you locate them, pull/squeeze them to the insides of the case and push forward. The front cover should come off.

Unable to remove imaging drum - Dell 5110cn Color Printer


When you open the front cover it is possible for the transfer roller assembly to remain latched against the imaging drum assembly, making it impossible to pull out the imaging drum. The drum should lift out very easily. If it doesn't, try closing the imaging drum cover and then the front cover (ie: put everything back the way it was). Then open the front cover again, pressing firmly on the front cover latch. When open, check that the transfer roller assembly stayed with the front cover and swung out of the way of the imaging drum (you may have to swing it yourself. When the front cover has opened properly, the imaging drum's cover will unlatch easily and the drum can be pulled out.

I hope this helps someone! I had to say many bad words before I figured this out. Good thing I had a second 5100cn handy to look at for comparison. - B.Till

I CAN'T FIND MY USB ANYWERE


most usb ports are either on the back of the computer or to the side. Other models have additional usb ports on the front of the computer where you pull down or up a cover to gain access. You are talking about a usb port right?

Power port on le1600 does not charge batteries.


In some Motion LE1600 tablet pcs, the AC adapter port becomes separated from the motherboard. It will charge in the convertible keyboard or docking station because the power comes from the USB connection (for the kb) or the dock connector (for the FlexDock). Motion used to fix this by repairing the solder joint but now they just replace the motherboard (very expensive). There are ways to solder this but the repair doesn't always last unless you have someone really good do it.

Unrecognized usb port


ok here is your solution on ALL of these external mybooks by Western Digital... If you are getting a usb device not recognised, and can't get to your disk in any other way thru my computer, device manager, drive manager, ect.. what has happened is it's generic power and usb card that is connected to the hard drive inside it's plastic box has gone out. These western digital essential edition drives which look sealed actually have some tabs on the shiny plastic case about 1 inch in from the front on the bottom. Just put the tip of a streight screwdriver into the cooling slots. Gently pull up and back on the screwdriver bending the slotted area by the outer **** shaped cover 1 inch from the rounded front. Pull up and towards the back. Once you have both sides of the bottom front released, then try to gently pry the bottom center up above the side of the ****. Because there are 4 tabs (2 on each side) that extend down from the main housing with the cooler holes that just rest in a track that is in the inside of the outer shiny **** shell. Then repeat for the top of the drive unit. After a little work you can remove it sliding it all out of the back. Once the outer shell is off, you can pull the drive out with the SATA to power and USB card connected to the drive. There is a metal housing over this card. Remove the 2 screws on the top of the metal housing of the usb&power. Once removed the bad card can be slid down of the drive. You can then just plug the drive in in any SATA port with SATA power inside your computer. Or just buy an external drive housing from tigerdirect or newegg for $20 which will make any sata drive to an USB External. What can I say, Western Digital has crappy cards. I only found this out by my having 2 My Books. 1 worked, and one fowled.. So I took them both apart. Better than loosing my data seeing how they were my backup drives...
