If you cant get second hand ones
why not try making them yourself from apiice of robber or simular material.just cut a piece simular to the ones you allready have
this may take two or three atempts .but it will be inexpensive and quick

I lost the rubber feet of my lenovo u300s

Lenovo does not list the lower case rubbers as a separate part. They consider them to be part of the lower case, which is a hugely expensive part because it's a fancy metal one.

Your best bet is to watch eBay for someone parting out this laptop.

How do I remove the back of my Gateway all in one ZX4931-31e to upgrade the RAM and for basic Maintenance, cleaning?

Remove the two rubber feet from the bottom, remove the back cover plate, unscrew the single silver screw, take a flat head screwdriver (Thin) and push down on the silver face plate from the backside of the computer where you removed the two rubber feet.
Shouldn't have to push too hard. This will release the case plastic.
It is the silver painted plastic that unsnaps from the main body.

I lost one of the rubber stops for my logitech speaker lapdesk 700, where can I get a replacement?

Sometimes you can get a replacement from the manufacturer, however you can improvise a replacement by going to a local office supply- they usually sell stick-on rubber "feet" for office equipment for around a dollar or two.

My computer screen continuously turns black and the only way to get it back to normal is to press the little rubber button near the power button. After it returns to normal, it turns black within 5...

I think the little rubber button must be the one in the lower corner of the plastic face that goes around the screen? If so you have one of several problems.

1. That little rubber button is a screw cover and it conceals a small Phillips head screw that may be loose and shorting the wire that carries the signal to your screen. Gently pry out the little button and carefully tighten the screw.

2. If that doesn't solve your problem, here is the first of the further possibilities. A little panel behind that same screen border of plastic (it called the "bezel") named the "inverter" has a loose plug or is wearing out.

3. The LCD (screen) has a plug attached to the wire that runs by the screw behind the bumper which is loose inside where it plugs into the motherboard.

These problems need to be checked by someone very familiar with taking apart and repairing laptops. But at least now, you know what the problem might be and can talk to a repair guy about it and not get taken advantage of.

Best of Luck!

The bottom of my computer gets extremely hot. what causes this? and how can i fix this issue before it ruins my computer?

For starters, don't put it on any soft surfaces, like bed, your lap, or anything of that sort. A laptop has small "feet", and when placed on a hard surface they elevate it so that there's some air flow from the bottom of the laptop case. If you put it on a soft surface, the material gets pressed against the air inlets and blocks the air flow.
If you work a lot with your laptop on your lap or bed or such, get yourself a laptop stand on which you would put it, or use a substitute, like a kitchen cutting board of suitable size.

If however the laptop is used on a hard surface and still gets very hot, it can mean a couple of things:
- the "feet" under the laptop have lost their rubber ends, which give them the appropriate height
- the air ducts inside the case are filled with dust residue, making it harder for the radiators to disperse heat.
If your rubber "feet" un-glued themselves, it will be hard to replace them with exact equivalents. You can try sticking some rubber/silicone self-stick bumpers used in furniture to dampen the doors.
If dust is suspected, compressed air can be used to blow it away through the air inlets and outlets (the latter usually are grilles on the side or rear of the machine).

I have dell inspiron 600m laptop. When I boot my laptop, initially display comes on panal for a sec and then goes off. laptop is loading windows and everything works fine. But, I can not see the display....

try going into safe mode,remove the drivers reboot ,if you are able to see windows you have driver problem,if not your inverter is bad this a small board which sits under the lcd bazel.ONLY ATTEMPT THE FOLLOWING IF YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE OTHERWISE GET A PROFESSIONAL.If you are going to tackle this make sure the battery is removed the ac as your lcd has rubber feet covering some screws remove the rubber feet you will see the screws remove the screws carefully remove the plastic bazel by prying it away with your fingers
the inverter sits below the lcd make sure both cables are snug.Usually sometimes its the conector on the right that comes loose.
Good luck

My durabook seems to get very hot to touch. I hear the fan running. Is there more than one fan..or is that even the problem?

They tend to get hot, its not a problem unless it starts to cause problems such as random crashes or shut downs, If its an old notebook then try using a can of compressed air to get rid of some dust. Either way what surface are you using it on? because id only use it on a flat hard surface like a table if not already and use something to raise the back of it by an inch or two more then what the rubber feet already do. Most people will assume laptops will run fine on your lap or bed etc how ever this is not the case, this will cause more heat and premature problems. I've made something for mine so i can use it on my lap when im in bed, its a piece of flat thin plywood around 22inchW/15inchL for my 17' lappy with halve inch rubber door stops glued in place where my laptops rubber feet would go, this reduced my overall heat from hot to touch to barely warm in fact i think the heat im feeling now is from where my hands have rested on the laptop :) laptops will run hot strait from the box if not well ventilated.
