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!

I need cord between printer and my laptop (hp) . Is it called the USB port? How do I get one? Printer is hp office jet 6210. My lap-top is a hp pavilion ze5170


The USB cable is available in any departmental store ( like bestbuy, walmart etc ) or computer sales firm.
Ask for USB 2.0 cable as it is compatible with the printer and your laptop.

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
