Pls l have try the reset don,t work what wil l do now

Toothpicks are tapered, and might not go far enough in the hole to fully depress the reset button.

Try the end of a paperclip instead, that is the tool the hole and switch were intended for.

If you try jamming the toothpick in further, you run great risk of having it bust off in the hole and really messing things up.

Evon610c keyboard keys broken how to replace the keyboard ? how to open the case with out damage internal parts ??


this may help you i found it somewhere online

How to Replace the hp compaq evo n610c laptop keyboard Removing the Damaged Keyboard
Enusre the laptop is fully powered off, unplugged from the wall, and the battery taken out.
Turn the laptop over. On some models icons indicating which screws are attached to the keyboard are displayed. If not, you may have to eyeball it if you can't find a breakdown for your model online.
Remove those screws with a Phillips screwdriver.
Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if the keyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find if those plastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. If not, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.
Remove the plastic pieces carefully with a toothpick or plastic pick if there is any in the way.
Unscrew any screws at the top (if necessary) and remove the keyboard itself from top to bottom. You'll notice that the keyboard is connected with a thin, but wide, data cable to the system board at the bottom.
Take that same pick and lift the plastic connectors that hold in this data cable in place.
Carefully remove the data cable. Now the whole keyboard should be free.

Replacing the keyboard

Take the new keyboard out of the plastic, and slip the data cable back in between the plastic connectors on the system board. Make sure it's all the way in.
Use the pick to push the plastic connectors back into place, and make sure it's holding the data cable in.
Slip the keyboard itself into place, from bottom to top. Make sure the screw holes or clamps line up at the top.
Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
Finally, put the battery back in and power on the laptop. If all has gone well, the keyboard should be functioning like brand new

hope this was helpful

I can not sync my Controller to my ps3 console. I tried using the USB cord and it will not connect. I purchased a brand new controller and still the same results. What am I missing?

Easy fix! Here's what you do:

Start with everything off, connect your PS3 remote to the cord and plug it into your PS3.

You are going to need something pretty thin, like a pencil lead, toothpick, or something semi-pointy with a decent size tip. I use a paperclip.

Turn your PS3 on by hand, running your finger over the power opening (Don't know the technical term for this hole...) and let it completely boot up

Once your main screen is loaded, press the center PS button on your remote. The 4 red lights will start flashing. Take the pointy end of your (paperclip/toothpick/other pointy object) and insert it into the tiny hole on the top back of the remote, press it in like your pushing an internal button. It should be right behind the 4 red lights - either way - it's the only little hole you have on it. Hold it in for a few seconds.

The controller will process, and if done correctly, will sync with your PS3.

If you have any other problems let me know. Enjoy!

On/off button stays in. won't work

Cheaply made part that is non-replaceable. One solution is to drill a small hole just to the left of the power button big enough to insert a toothpick through. Power can be turned on and off with the toothpick. Can use a paperclip but it will scratch up the bezel on the outside and the circuit board on the inside.

My matSHITa dvd-ram uj880es drive wont work.

There is a small hole in the drawer to poke a paperclip, or toothpick into and open it manually. Have you tried to see if there is a cd or something jammed in it? Or try to update the driver in the control panel system.

RESET didn't work

The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player. If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the Windows format command on the unit. To reformat the memory:
Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
Reinstall the firmware from

Sound - internal speakers (MacBook Air)

I have a solution for you all.  This fixed the problem for me.  First, make sure you are all running 10.5.5.  If you are not, run software update from the Apple Menu.  If you are set there, go to Applications --> Utilities --> Disk Utility --> Make sure your Hard Drive is selected on the left hand panel --> MAKE SURE the First Aid tab is selected! --> Click Repair Disk Permissions.  This may take a while, FYI.  As soon as Disk Permissions have been repaired, restart your computer right away.  That fixed the problem at my end.  Good luck everyone!

HP DVD WRITER 840b - CD/DVD Tray won't open??!!

Problem of tray opening on hp dvd burner. I got the door open as suggested above with paperclip. Then took some CRC 2-26 plastic safe electrical grade lubricant and swabbed the pivoting door mechanism. Opened with the paperclip about 5-6 more times until it finally opens normally.
