Click here for instructions from HP/Compaq on removing the case, well for this model the right hand side panel. You can get specific products to clean the inside of the tower, product name escapes me atm. Don't use a air compressor, it may clean it but will leave water behind. Which of course is not good for a computer.

What servicing does my mower need routinely?

Riding mower decks should be cleaned after each use to keep parts rusting and jamming especially the outer shell where the belts and pulleys are. The easiest way the outer shell is to use a leaf blower. The inside shell is hardier to clean although some decks provide a clean port that a garden hose attaches to and with the mower and deck operating wash it through this port.

It would not hurt clean inside of the mower deck of push mowers to extend their life as well.

You check you air filters and change oil on a regular base too. Oil is normally changed every 25 hours of operation or annually which ever comes first.

Chromium bohr model

For Chromium Z= 24. You have to distribute 24 electrons on a certain number of shells.
Draw a small solid disk , call it the nucleus. You may specify the number of protons.
Draw a first circular shell. Populate it with 2 electrons
Draw a second shell. Fill it with 8 electrons
There remains 14 electrons to fit in the 3rd shell. You could put them all on the 3rd shell, but that would be wrong because the 3rd shell remains incomplete at 13 until the 4th (s-shell) is populated.
Thus you have 2,8,13, 1

I need to clean a child's sickness from the base of my Toby. How do I seperate it?


It isn't recommended that you take apart the plastic shell of the carseat. You can remove the fabric from the carseat to wash it and then clean the shell with warm soapy water but it is not advisable to remove the harness or to take apart the factory seal of the shell.

Have a look at and select the country you're in, then choose the Tobi carseat and select the instructions to view directions on how to remove the fabric.

If you are encountering this kind of problem, you may try to check for conflicting softwares.

Look if how many Antivirus program installed on your pc. 2 or more antivirus would really slows down the pc.
Check on control panel
check on program files and program data

Do a disk clean up and delete temp files on your computer.

Disk clean up
start->all programs->accessories->system tool->disk clean up

deleting temp files and shell cookies
start->run->type shell:cookies->press enter->=ctrl+A->shift+delete
start->run->type %temp%->press enter-> ctrl+A->shift+delete

You may also do a system restore
start->all programs->accessories->system tool->system restore

You may also check for any malicious software, run full scan using your Anti Virus program

I hope it works for you.

Remove it from the window,just slide it out from the shell,make sure there are no retaining screws,remove the front from the unit,and set it on a table outside,use a water hose and spray all debris from inside the unit,just remember not to spray hard stream of water directly into the coils on the evaporator,or condenser,you may have to remove some debris by hand if it is to large for the water hose to remove,make sure drain holes are clear,and let drip dry for about 30 minutes,then tilt unit one way,or another to finish draining the water,coils can be cleaned gently,just make sure nothing is restricting the air flow threw them,and make sure the fan has no objects in it`s way,then place the unit back in the shell in the window and you are ready for another hot hot summer.

Check the mas air flow meter it might be dirty, you can get cleaner for it at the auto parts store. If cleaning it works you will need to replaced it very soon because that is just a short fix. I have cleaned mine twice and I know that very shortly I will be shelling out 500.00 for a new one.

Need instruction manual/schematics for replacing 2005 kia rio driver side rear wheel bearing. i've got the wheel/hub/bearing off, not the inside ring to the bearing. i need to know how to replace it .

clean all the grease if there is any out of the hub, turn the hub over and using a drift and hammer strike the shell from the back edge working around the shell as you go, should not take too much to remove it but you will need a bit more than a tap with the hammer.
Hope this has helped you

Sometimes my Compaq laptop computer screen gets all pink and pixley. It is like a magenta pink. It dosen't do it everytime just randomly but sometime I cannot get it to go away. Sometime when I would...

It sounds as if the culprit here is going to be either the screen itself, or the video card. On a desktop PC, this would be fairly simple to troubleshoot because you could switch out the monitor with one that is known to be working properly. If that did not solve the problem, you would next need to look at your video card. If the computer had onboard video, you could install an aftermarket video card and disable the onboard video.

Unfortunately, with a laptop it isn't quite that simple and you will more than likely have to take the unit to a professional repair service.
