    I have a Philips Freevents X51 which I think is a rebadged Twinhead slimnote Twinhead F12DT Twinhead F12DT N12PI . Wehave removed all screws but it still will not open to let us open the case to fix a failure to boot up. It is as if there is still something preventing it open.

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    Am having similar problem, still stuck, even all screws at the bottom has been removed. It seem that there is a catch in-between the IEEE connector and lip of keyboard.

    Do anyone know the solution? I need to access into the motherboard and check on the condition of video card... Rgd / Dan.

Are you sure you have all the screws out, there is a small plastic disc on the bottom of the laptop underneath the card slot, this needs to be removed to access a screw (obviously take out plastic blank in slot first).

And there is not much reason to dismantle LCD either.

What is it you are trying to do.

Apart from all the visible screws in the bottom, there are some below the keyboard. You need to remove the keyboard, it is held on its upper side by 5 plastic tabs that you can pry apart with a thin blade.
After removing these screws, you can open tha case but be careful of the touchpad cable.

I have a freevents X62. To open the case, you also need to pull out the DVD tray. Pull it fully out and you will see two small screws that hold the CD to the top half of the laptop clam shell. Remove these, THEN pull out the complete DVD 2 cm or so. This removes the DVD connector from the laptop. (You'ss see what's going on onc you're inside.) The shell should then come apart if you've removed all the rest of the screws. (No need to remove the screws within the LCD panel.)

    I have a freevents X62. (VERY SIMILAR TO TWINHEAD, I BELIEVE) To open the case, you also need to pull out the DVD tray. Pull it fully out and you will see two small screws that hold the CD to the top half of the laptop **** shell. Remove these, THEN pull out the complete DVD 2 cm or so. This removes the DVD connector from the laptop. (You'll see what's going on once you're inside.) The shell should then come apart if you've removed all the rest of the screws. (No need to remove the screws within the LCD panel.)

    HOWEVER... be very careful if you try to prise the motherboard away from the casing - there's a small ribbon cable connecting the touchpad to the motherboard. I'm STILL trying to reconnect that.

Hello, I had the same problem with my x50.
Could not figure it out and the remaining screws that were holding it were underneath the keyboard.
Popped the keyboard out, undid the screws and voila, the case opens enough to do things.

I have succesfully taken my x51 apart several times to upgrade parts, there is the screw under the card slot you need to remember and you need to take the screen off. To really get into things there are screws under the keyboard too, the keyboard just clicks right off.

PLS HELP!!! i forgot my bios password.. i could not re format my twinhead E-10 notebook...anymore.. thnx very much


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Broken DC in Jack


I agree, the best option is most likely a motherboard replacement.

You can search Ebay, there are several places that advertise DC power jack repair, But from my experience, repair is an iffy proposition.
