It is possible you have hidden screw under feet /under a label/inside batter or other removable cover
Also a thin blade between the case joint may reveal a snap tab or teo

My hp computer dc5750 lights and fan comes on but i have no output on the monitor how can i diagnose the problem

It could be the monitor or the graphic/video card.Try taking a cable from the computer to your dvi/hdmi input on TV or another monitor that would tell if the graphic/video card is still working.if you can't then try to connect a laptop to the input of the monitor.monitor usually give up the ghost due to failed capacitors/ dry cards will if they get overclocked.just some pointers that may help you.

If you can not figure out how to open the adapter case the easiest way to eliminate the frayed portion is to cut the cord on both sides of the frayed area. Make sure you mark one of the wires before you make a cut so you can match them back up when you solder it back together. Get some heat shrink tubing which will fit over each individual wire as well as a piece that will fit over both wires which will be covered with the smaller heat shrink tubing.

Once you cut out the bad portion slide the larger piece of heat shrink tubing onto the longer remaining wire as far from the cut as possible. Next slide a small piece of heat shrink tubing onto one of the split wires, again move it as far from the cut as possible. Strip about 1/2" of insulation from the cut wires. Wrap the stripped wires together making sure to put the marked wires together. Solder the wires together. You may want to hold the end of the wire closest to the heat shrink tubing with a pair of needle nose pliers to act as a heat sink so the tubing doesn't begin to shrink before you slide it over the solder joint. Now, slide the smaller heat shrink tubing over the solder joint and apply a heat gun to it. Slide the larger heat shrink tubing over the one remaining bare wire and the one with the small piece of heat shrink tubing. Apply the heat gun again.

This sounds more complicated than it is to actually do.

Even when laptop is plugged into an electrical outlet, it will suddenly think it is not and drain the battery power..the indicator lights will flash and battery power will drain.

There may be a fault in the laptop's power supply adapter.

Try testing its rated output voltage versus the actual with a multimeter.

If the adapter comes in 2 sections, 1 cord from the wall to the adapter, and then the adapter to the laptop, be sure to test both sections.

Replace the adapter if required.

Also check that the connection socket where the power adapter plugs into the laptop is not loose and preventing proper electrical contact.

Good luck.

My incase case for my macbook pro is causing the hinges to crack

I've had the same problem when I had first installed my case. One day, when it was on the table, my friend leaned on it and there was a loud crack, which got me scared. Due to this, the cracking stopped. Turns out, there is a long tab to attach to where the fan opening is. Just flip your mac over, and push down hardly on the edge of the case, this way, it will be fully attached. Incase makes things perfectly, so if you don't install it correctly, it wont work. Hope this helps. Also, these instructions are not found anywhere.

My motherboard pc chips m925g v9.1b have a trouble

The best thing to do is strip down your motherboard down to just the cpu. Power it up and see if it will power up okay. Then start adding things back on, starting with your memory. If you have more than one memory stick, put one in at a time. You will keep doing this until you find the part that stops the system from booting. That will tell you what part is not working.

Prob with headphone

I assume that u replaced or tried a different ear phones?
The female SOCKET on those things are small and special..Imagine a question mark [ ? ] one facing left, the other facing right, One just slightly BELOW the other. You wil notice that the MALE has a metal tip, a RING of plastic, then another metal ring with the plastic holder at the other end [the wires extends out of this end]
If you can see down the hold, u may see the two(2) "" question Marks "". The 1st metal tip should touch the lowest and the 2nd metal ring on male plug touches upper "" ?? "". push plug in and SLIGHTLY move around while the unit is ON AND PLAYING MUSIC. If the unit can be heard in stero, then the INNERS are loose. If the female socket moves, then one of your contacts are "desoldered" called " cold solder joint. u may need a tech.
Delicated operation!!!

Power supply doesnt turn on

There are several solutions

1. Plugs should be placed correctly
2. The should be power comming into the sockets
3. The voltage switcher should be on the correct voltage... it may be on 220 V while your power in your country would be 110 V so check it

4. Fuse may be blown out

if the 3 dont work contact me again if the fuse may be blown out,, it may be a greater problem

Replacing a DVD DRive in Averatec 5110

If your removing your dvd drive, disconnect any usb and power cables, hold down the power button for a few secs. You should be able to undo the screws and cables and then slide it out of the holder. Some times there are screws hidden. Usually there are four. If it catches on the front 'plate', you may have to remove it, but be careful, sometimes there are wires attached. This is, of course, for a desktop NOT a laptop. Dont worry about disconnecting your keyboard, but make sure that anything that has its own power is disconnected. This also depends on the design of your case as well. Good luck.
