I presume you have noticed the two chrome screws at the base of the metal plate. Remove those then carefully work the circuit board away from the rear casing. It clicks out from behind a few little notches and rubber holders around the edges. Once you've done that remove the clear yellow tape that covers the connector and carefully slide the connector out allowing the metal click down cover on the connector to pop up.

Dell laptop inspiron m5010 screen shows 3 images across - external shows the same


This = Not good

Graphics chipset problem.

A) Graphics chipset is overheating.

1) Suggest clean inside of laptop out,

2) Apply new Thermal Paste to CPU, (Processor), and also carefully peel off the Thermal Pad on graphics chipset, and throw away.

Suggest this time instead of using a Thermal Pad again, (Shudder), use a piece of copper sheet that is the correct thickness, and surface area.

Then use Thermal Paste on top if the graphics chipset, and top of copper sheet; before reinstalling Cooling Tube/Heatsink combo.


B) Graphics chipset has overheated, or actually has been overheating; and has now caused a poor contact of graphics chipset; TO motherboard.

Allow me to expand on A and B above.........

First of all.........do I think the graphics chipset is bad?
No sir, I do not.
Proof is that you ARE getting graphics on the LCD screen.
Three images, or not.
(Internal monitor of laptop, OR external monitor)

Referring back to A)

The CPU (Processor) and the graphics chipset, are the two hardware components that give off the MOST heat.

If the laptop is dirty inside, the cooling capacity of the cooling system; has dropped tremendously.

This allows the CPU, and the graphics chipset (GPU), to overheat.
Overheating graphics chipset will do all kinds of strange things.
(Graphically)

What also transpires, is the Thermal Paste dries up.
Looses it's thermal conductivity properties.
A Thermal Pad is a material that is impregnated with Thermal Paste, so you can see how this equates.
It's impregnated Thermal Paste also dries up.

To regress;
The top of a Processor (CPU), and the bottom of the metal plate of the Cooling Tube, that sits on it; are not perfectly smooth.

A magnified view would detail, 'Ridges, Valleys, and Pitholes'.
When the two parts are mated together, Air Pockets are formed.
Air in this case is an Insulator. Not a Conductor.

Thermal Paste fills the above imperfections, and is an Excellent conductor of heat.

Moving on.........

A Thermal Pad is J-U-N-K!
Carefully peel off, and fly it at the cat. (NO, don't! lol!)

Using a small piece of copper sheet, that is the correct thickness; (And width/length), will allow more surface area for cooling. Becomes more passive surface area for cooling.

(The Fan Assembly does not blo-w air on the graphics chipset. More on that in a moment. Therefore it would not be Dynamic cooling. It is Passive cooling )

Let's take a look at the cooling system for the Dell Inspiron M5010, and I feel it will help explain better........

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-OEM-Inspiron-M5010-CPU-Heatsink-K28PW-Fan-DFB451005M20T-AMD-Warranty-/370766328394?pt=US_CPU_Fans_Heatsinks&hash=item565365324a

Scroll down to the three large photos.
The top, or first photo; shows a Top view.
The next photo down shows a Bottom view.
The photo below it shows a detailed view of the finned Heatsink.

Looking at the first photo, or can be said - Top View.....
The black Fan Assembly is at the top.

Note the rectangular area to the Right, of the black Fan Assembly.
This is the Heatsink.

Coming down from it is the curved copper Cooling Tube.
Note the small rectangular copper metal plate, then at the bottom of the Cooling Tube; note the V-shaped Aluminum metal plate.
(V-shape that goes to an odd shape)

Cooling Tube:
Sightly flattened copper tube, sealed on both ends; and filled with Nitrogen.

Has a small rectangular copper metal plate, that sits on the graphics chipset.
Also has an Aluminum metal plate (V-shaped), that sits on the CPU.
(Processor)

Heatsink:
Small piece of aluminum strip, that has Tall, Thin, fins protruding from it, and is rectangular in shape.

Fan Assembly:
Small multi-bladed fan, in a D-shaped shroud.

Working principle:
Heat is absorbed from the Processor, and graphics chipset, by their two respective metal plates.
Then the Cooling Tube absorbs heat from the plates.

The Cooling Tube then transfers the heat to the finned Heatsink.
The Heatsink absorbs the heat, then radiates it away with it's tall, thin, fins.
Air flow from the Fan Assembly, helps carry heat away from the Heatsink's fins.

That small rectangular piece of copper plate, that sits on the graphics chipset; it TOO SMALL in surface area.
The surface area needs to be increased.

This would be accomplished by ADDING a small piece of copper sheet, that is larger in surface area; and is of the correct thickness.
(Approximately 1/16th of an Inch thick, or 2mm)

Using this video to help explain adding more surface area,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEpnqhRYGLw

Posted for added surface area, NOT re-flowing graphics chipset, BGA surface mount.
Specifically go to -> 08:38

You can get a small piece of copper sheet, from a hobby store.
Thermal Paste is used on TOP of the graphics chipset, AND on top of the small copper piece of metal. Then the Cooling Tube is installed in place.

For additional questions on this procedure, or to have me clarify anything I have stated, please post in a Comment.

Moving on in an added Comment.

Turns on put dont start just turn back on


Are we talking about the NEC Versa P7200?


Let me see if I have this straight..........

Turns on, just shows a blue screen, then shuts off.

That about it?

Virus?

I would be more inclined to say the laptop is dirty inside.

Air is used to cool the hardware components inside a computer.

Basic cooling system consists of a Cooling Tube, Heatsink, and Fan Assembly.

Cooling Tube:
Slightly flattened copper tube, sealed on both ends, and filled with Nitrogen.
Has a metal plate, or plates; attached to one end.

Heatsink:
Small strip of metal that has Tall, Thin, fins protruding from it.
This is mounted to the opposite end of the Cooling Tube, from the metal plate/s.

Fan Assembly:
Small multi-bladed fan sitting in a D-shaped shroud.

Let's look at an example, (Not for yours),

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NEW-NEC-Versa-S900-Fan-Heatsink-GC054009VH-8-V1-B492-M-/270295120853?pt=US_CPU_Fans_Heatsinks&hash=item3eeed83bd5

Two views are shown.
The view on the Right is a Top View.

Let's refer to it, with references also to the other view. The Bottom view.

At the bottom you see a rectangular shaped piece of metal, with 4 holes in it. One in each corner.
For this particular model it sits just on the Processor.

Heat is absorbed by that metal plate, and the curved copper Cooling Tube absorbs heat from the metal plate.
The Cooling Tube then transfers the heat, to the rectangular shaped finned Heatsink.

The Heatsink absorbs the heat, then radiates it away with it's Tall, Thin fins.
Air flow from the Fan Assembly, helps carry heat away from the fins of the Heatsink.

If the fins of the Heatsink are blocked off with 'Gunk', and also the fan blades; the laptop overheats.
['Gunk' = Dirt, dust, hair, lint, food crumbs,....you name it ]

This is an example of a laptop that is dirty inside,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkAeE5I5E_A

You can see this model has 3 Cooling Tubes, and metal plates; plus 3 Heatsinks.
(0:46)

When a Processor overheats it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
This is a fail-safe feature that is built-in.
Keeps the Processor from burning up.

Also the Thermal Paste dries up from overheating.
And Thermal Pad.

(A Thermal Pad is a material that is impregnated with Thermal Paste)

Thermal Paste is used on top of the Processor, most of the time.
Other times a Thermal Pad is used instead.
A Thermal Pad is generally used on a graphics chipset.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My compaq e500 emits a load sound when pwr is plugged in and the first three leds on the pwr sw bd light up. nothing comes up on the screen


'Loud sound'?

Would that be like a BIOS Beep Code?

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions, remove all Ram Memory modules, ('Stick'), and clean the gold plated contact pins; with a pencil eraser,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1GB_DDR2_SO-DIMM.png

If using an eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser; refrain from letting the metal band of the pencil; touch the gold plated contact pins.

Rub across each pin, and up and down.
BOTH sides.
Use air to remove the eraser dust.
If you have a can of compressed air for computers available, use it.
If not air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Reinstall the Ram Memory module/s.

Free Service Manual from HP Support,

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual&lang=en&cc=us&docIndexId=64179&taskId=101&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=96231#2

In the list click on the blue -
Compaq Armada E500 and Armada V300 Series - Maintenance and Service Guide

Page 104 deals with Ram Memory removal/replacement

3) Reinstall the Battery. Plug the AC adapter back into laptop, THEN plug the AC adapter back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the laptop on.

Still the same?

4) Next is to see if the laptop is dirty inside.
IF the laptop has never had the inside cleaned, to your knowledge; the laptop IS dirty inside.

Air is used to cool the hardware components inside the laptop.
The Processor (CPU), and the graphics chipset (G.P.U.); are the two hardware components that run the hottest.

If a Processor overheats it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
This is a fail safe feature that is built-in.
Keeps the Processor from burning up.

If it were I, I would remove the Top Cover, and have a look at the Fan Assembly, plus the rest of the cooling system.

(copper Cooling Tube, and finned Heatsink,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Compaq-Armada-E500-Fan-W-Heatsink-159535-001-Free-Exp-Ship-Tested-OEM-USA-/230926114984?pt=US_CPU_Fans_Heatsinks&hash=item35c444e0a8

The finned Heatsink is to the Left.
Pretty crude design, but this is an old laptop.
(Newer designs have more fins, and they are thinner. You will see an example soon)

The Fan Assembly is in the Middle.
To the right is the copper Cooling Tube, and it has an aluminum metal plate attached to it, with 4 mounting 'arms'.

The Cooling Tube is a slightly flattened copper tube, sealed on both ends; and filled with Nitrogen.

The metal plate sits on top of the Processor.

Heat is absorbed from the Processor by the metal plate.
The Cooling Tube then absorbs the heat from the metal plate, and transfers it up to the finned Heatsink.

The Heatsink absorbs the heat, then radiates it away with the Fins.
Air flow from the Fan Assembly helps carry heat away from the fins.

If the fins of the Heatsink are clogged with 'Gunk', the cooling capacity drops tremendously.

If the Fan's blades, center hub, and surrounding cage, (Shroud), are clogged with 'Gunk', the cooling capacity drops tremendously.

[Gunk = Dirt, dust, lint, hair, carpet deodorizer, food crumbs,....you name it ]

This is an example of a dirty laptop. Dell XPS 1017 used for example,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkAeE5I5E_A

5) Also, Thermal Paste compound is used in-between the Processor, and the metal plate on the Cooling Tube.
Thermal Paste dries up over time. Also due to overheating.

When it does it looses it's thermal conductivity properties.

It's used to fill very tiny imperfections, in the surface of the top of the Processor; and bottom of the metal Cooling Tube plate.
Plus help transfer the heat from the Processor, TO the the metal Cooling Tube plate.

Suggestion is to also replace the Thermal Paste, while you have the computer apart for cleaning. I can guide you with this procedure.

6) The last thing, and I just noticed from looking at the Service Manual, (Page 125), is that a Voltage Converter Board is used.

That small board could go out, and cause what you are seeing also.
It is HP part number; HP 152928-001.
You can find it listed in the Illustrated Parts Catalog, on Page 82.
It is listed as No.8,

http://www.impactcomputers.com/152928-001.html

To summarize;

A) Remove and clean gold plated contact pins on Ram Memory modules.
No? Go on.

B) Clean inside of computer, and clean top of Processor, plus bottom of metal Cooling Tube plate; PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3829122&CatId=503

There is a Proper procedure for this. I can guide you.

Still no joy? Go on.

C) Replace Voltage Converter Board.
Can guide you with this procedure also.

1545 inspiron tricks


Okay, there's roll-over, play dead, and fetch.
[ Ziiiing! Okay fetch it dog! Ewww! That crunched it! ]

JUST KIDDIN'!

What 'tricks' would you like? Post back in a Comment.

1) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-keyboard-dell-inspiron-1545-laptop/

2) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replacing-cracked-lcd-screen-on-dell-inspiron-1545-laptop/

3) http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1545/en/SM/index.htm

Tips:

A) The top of a Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink that sits on it, are not perfectly smooth.

A magnified view would detail, 'Hills, Valleys, and Pitholes'.

When the two parts are mated together, these imperfections listed above, create air pockets.

Air is an Insulator, not a Conductor.

Thermal paste fills these voids, and is an excellent conductor of heat.
After time the thermal paste dries up. It looses it's thermal conductivity.

The top of the Processor, and bottom of the Heatsink, should be cleaned THOROUGHLY. Then new, fresh thermal paste applied.

ALL power removed from the laptop, (AC adapter {Charger} and Battery), you need to wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

[ Electro Static Discharge.
Example,

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245 ]

This is what the Fan Assembly/Cooling Tube looks like,

http://www.ecrater.co.uk/p/13270427/dell-inspiron-1545-cpu-heatsink-cooling?keywords=dell+inspiron+1545+cooling+fan

Motherboard removed this is the side you will see.

At the top you see the Fan Assembly. (Fan inside a silvery shroud)
To the left of the Fan Assembly is the finned Heatsink.

Coming down from the Heatsink is the copper Cooling Tube.
Here you will see two metal plates attached to the Cooling Tube.

The first plate closest to the Fan Assembly sits on top of the Processor.
The next metal plate that is at the end of the Cooling Tube, sits on top of the G.P.U.

[Graphics Processing Unit. Slang? Graphics chipset ]

There are two views available. In the two views shown click on the bottom one.
This shows the Fan Assembly/Cooling Tube, upside down.

See the metal plate that sits on top of the Processor? Has four 'ears'?
The squarish copper plate in the middle, actually sits on top of the Processor.

The metal plate with the pointed tip to the right, sits on top of the GPU. The rectangular plate in the middle, actually sits on top of the GPU.

The top of the Processor, top of the GPU, and the two areas indicated above, need to be cleaned THOROUGHLY.
Use Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol. (Rubbing alcohol)

I use 91 percent alcohol. 70 percent will do. Do Not recommend 50 percent. (It's 50 percent alcohol, and 50 percent WATER )

May take a few (Bunch?) of Q-tips. Sometimes it's a gooey mess.
DO NOT leave any old Thermal Paste residue behind. Clean enough to eat off of, is the motto.

CAUTION!!
Isopropyl Alcohol is EXTREMELY FLAMMABLE!
Use in a WELL ventilated area with NO sparks or flames present.

Laptop is overheating? Clean the inside of the laptop, (Especially between the fins of the Heatsink, fan blades, center hub of fan, and surrounding cage ), and clean, and apply new, fresh Thermal Paste.

B) No display on laptop's internal monitor? Use a VGA monitor, and connect it to the VGA connector on the laptop. (Laptop OFF, monitor OFF)
See if the display shows on the external VGA monitor.

(You may have to hold the Fn key down, and tap once on the F8 key.
Still no? Hold the Fn key down again, and tap again on the F8 key )

Display doesn't show you have a bad graphics chipset. (GPU)

Display does show on VGA external monitor, you have a problem with the Video Cable, and/or in the Display Assembly.

C) Laptops should be kept clean inside. Air is used to cool the hardware components.
Also do NOT block off the air intake duct on the bottom. Keep the laptop on a hard flat surface.
You may wish to also use a cooling pad. The fans create additional air for cooling.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the problem is the screen Inverter, and not the LCD screen.

[ Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Vikuiti1/BrandProducts/secondary/optics101/

A Backlight is the additional light source.
A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED's.
(Light Emitting Diode)

The Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook PC uses has options of using either CCFL, or LED,

http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/Dell/INSPIRON~1545/

[ A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

Average size is 2mm Thick. Length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height. 2mm is a little larger than 1/16th of an Inch ]

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

ALL laptops that use a CCFL (Or two), for a Backlight, use a screen Inverter.
SOME laptops that use LED's for Backlighting, use a screen Inverter.
SOME do NOT.

Primer over.

That's off the top of my pointed head. Is there something specific you are looking for?

Compac cq50 110us has always run hot but now it overheats corre temp gadget reads temp at 205f then commences shut down vents are clear and a tech ie brother in law opened and cleaned system of all debris ...


I find that when completely cleaning a laptop, I will remove the Heatsink/Cooling Tube combo.
Allows me to thoroughly clean in-between the fins, and around the fins, of the Heatsink.

Also allows me to THOROUGHLY clean, the bottom of the cooling tube's metal plates, that sit on the top of the Processor, and GPU.
(GPU = Graphics Processing Unit. Slang? Graphics chipset )

Also the top of the Processor, and top of the GPU.
Then fresh, new Thermal Paste is Properly applied, and the Heatsink/Cooling Tube combo reinstalled.

Thermal Paste dries up over time. When it does it looses it's thermal conductivity properties.
Due to the cost, and ease of replacing, it is just cheap insurance.

There may not be Thermal Paste used. Computer manufacturers also use a Thermal Pad.
A material soaked with Thermal Paste.

CANNOT be reused. Once the metal plate/s of the Cooling Tube squeeze down on the thermal pad, there is an imprint made.
Trying to reinstall the Cooling Tube, will not squeeze the thermal pad down any further than it was originally.
The same amount of pressure is used. A gap will result. In-between the surface of the thermal pad, and the metal plate of the Cooling Tube.
{Thermal Pad's are J-U-N-K. They loose their conductivity properties pretty quickly}

1) You were having a cooling problem in the beginning, and this IS one definite area to address, along with cleaning.

2) You are right there with full access, when thoroughly cleaning a laptop.
Access to the cooling system.

A) Did your tech i.e. brother-in-law address this issue?

B) If so what thermal paste was used, and what was the method of applying?
(Method of applying?
Yes. It matters. Especially if a compound like Artic Silver, or similar to, was used)

C) Cooling fan is rotating? Good. Now, what RPM is it spinning at?
Spinning too slow will cause overheating problems also.

Are you sure the Cooling Fan is not spinning intermittently?
Spins okay for a while, then slows down, or stops, then spins again.

D) Let's look at the Cooling Assembly, for the Compaq Presario CQ50 series of Notebook PC's,

Top View, palm rest (Top Cover Assembly ) removed,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-motherboard-from-compaq-presario-cq50-cq60-cq70-laptop/

Scroll down to Step 17.
To the upper left of the photo you will see the black Fan Assembly. (Most of)

{ Fan is inside a surrounding cage, or shroud. You can see some of the Fan's blades. The Fan and the Shroud, are the Fan Assembly}

Just disassembling down to this point, in order to clean, is Not enough.
You cannot thoroughly access the entire Heatsink. The motherboard must be removed in order to perform this.

You also cannot clean, and replace Thermal Paste.

Observe Steps 18 and 19.
Shows the motherboard being removed, and removed.
Same direction. Top facing up.

Observe Step 20
This shows the Bottom side of the Fan Assembly, and also shows the rest of the cooling system.

Fan Assembly to the top right. Coming down the right side of the Fan Assembly, and curving under, is the copper Cooling Tube. (The Cooling tube is a slightly flattened copper tube, sealed on both ends. It is filled with Nitrogen )

Coming along the Cooling Tube area under the Fan Assembly, is an aluminum small rectangular plate. This metal plate sits on the GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

Going further to the left, is the metal plate that sits on top of the Processor.
You see the four mounting screws for this metal plate, circled in red.

Step 21 shows the cooling assembly removed.
{The Cooling Fan Assembly, and the Heatsink/Cooling Tube Assembly, are two different assembly's.
Referring to both as the Cooling Fan Assembly, as in the article, is erroneous }

3) Heat from the top of the Processor, and graphics chipset (GPU) is absorbed through the Thermal Paste, and into the individual metal plate sitting on top of it.

The plates transfer the heat to the copper Cooling Tube. The heat is then transferred to the Heatsink, at the end of the Cooling Tube.

Air from the Fan Assembly goes through the fins, (And around the fins), of the Heatsink, and helps to carry heat away.

4) Thermal Paste
The top of a Processor, the top of a GPU, and the bottom surface of the metal plates which sit on them, is not perfectly smooth.

A magnified view would detail, 'Hills, Pitholes, and Valleys'.
When the two surfaces are mated together (Metal plate to Processor, metal plate to GPU), air pockets are created.

Created in-between the two surfaces.
Air is an Insulator. Not a Conductor.
Thermal Paste is an Excellent conductor of heat, and fills those imperfections. (Air pockets)

Tip:
When I state Thoroughly clean, for the top of the Processor, top of the GPU, and bottom of their matching metal plates, I mean THOROUGHLY.

Only half of my actual screen image showing on my monitor, Factory reset messed it up in the first place so that didnt help any


Thealfords03 Hi I had the same problem but luckily I was able to fix it. If you press the menu button down for 10-15 seconds The OSD lockout scren will go away and you will have access to the regular menu. When I did this I noticed that on the menu screen, all the menuoptions would become highlighted one by one as if I press the " - " button on the monitor. This gaveme the conclusion that the button was the culprit. The button was not stuck because I could press it and it would go in and pop back out. So I removed the base plate (3 screws) and then I found that on bottom 2 corners you will see a **** on the black inner plastic (use a flashlight) Stick a flat tip screwdriver there and gently pull the black frame out. Once you do that you will gain access to the panel that hold the 4 buttons. Remove the plug and separate the board with the buttons from the black plastic base by prying the plastic clips back. If your faulty button is the " - " button like mine then gently pry the metal cap thats on the top of each button until you remove it ( If done carefully you can replace it by pressing the metal plate back on) Once you remove the metal plate you can remove the actual button. Look down to locate a thin copper concave circular plate. I used a metal polishing paste to shine the copper concave plate on both sides once shined place it back in the button and put the button inside then press the button downto ensure the button goes down and pops back up. If it doesnt then gently press the middle of the copper plate with the tip of a screwdriver and try it again. If the button goes down and pops back up you can place the metal plate over the button and press down to fit down in place. Reassemble and this will fix your issue. I was so glad I got rid of that annoying OSD lockout white screen once I did this technique. Good luck and post something if it worked for you!

I would like a picture of the thrust bearing, mine fell out and I am not sure that I replaced it the right way. The clutch cable also do not want to release so I can reattach it?????


you have a problem with the automatic adjusting clutch ,the bearing is easy as the metal face goes onto the pressure plate and the plastic carrier clips onto the arm ,the clutch disk has the fattest part away from the engine so it sits inside the pressure plate .the clutch is held on with 9 mm headed bolts that require a socket with a round star shape not the one with the shape of the nut in , .its the cable thats the most difficult as the auto adjuster sits next to the brake master cylinder but i have had problems here in the past till i found that if i just fitted it and then pressed the pedal it re-adjusted itself .Must get myself one of then screen pen things then i could draw a picture which would save a thousand words
