Removal of the bottom side of a HP pavilion ze5170

I need to know what might be holding the bottom from being seperated from the upper part of the lap top. I have removed all screws and uncliped all contact points. There seems to be a clip of some sort that is still holding it together in the center.

you can e-mail me at

Thankyou for your time

Where your speakers are press the "F" keys there should be little clips holding them in place i think it's f3 f8 f10 f13 and delete keys pop out the speakers carefully then unscrew the fasteners that hold your keyboard in place. remove keyboard you will then have access to the remaining fasteners.

Is the keyboard loose? If not, there maybe a screw hiding under an access panel that keeps the keyboard in that may also hold the top and bottom of the case together.
If not, try lifting as much as you can and see if you can see what is holding it together at the point that is holding together.
Hope this helps!

Go into your CMOS settings by hitting the delete key while it is powering up and before it goes into windows. Once your there you can make the changes you need to and should be ok.

I have a hp pavilion ze5170 laptop and it is shutting itself off for no apparent reason. anyone know what could be causing this? it doesnt appear to be software related. its not crashing just turning off.

Power drain would be a better solution in this case.
1.first shut down the comp
2.unplug the charger
3. remove the battery
and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer

Wireless access

If you are sure your wireless network is working, you may try calling your internet service provider to reset the router. Your computer should automatically detect the wireless setting. You may also have to reinstall your wireless card.
