How do i open dv7-1451nr?


Instructions

1

Shut the Pavilion dv7 down and close the screen. After unplugging all cables from the computer, turn it over and remove the battery.
2

Unscrew the six Phillips-head screws holding the large T-shaped panel to the bottom of the Pavilion dv7. Remove the panel and set it aside.
3

Remove the keyboard locking screw--marked by a keyboard-shaped icon--from the top part of the compartment exposed when you removed the T-shaped panel. Reserve the screw.
4

Remove the black Phillips-head screw from next to the wireless adapter inside the T-shaped compartment. This screw holds the Pavilion dv7 optical drive in place.
5

Pull the Pavilion dv7 optical drive gently out of its bay, and then remove the two Phillips-head screws from inside the empty drive bay. Reserve the screws.
6

Remove the Phillips-head screw next to the circular intake fan vent in the corner of the Pavilion dv7.
7

Remove the five Phillips-head screws from inside the empty battery compartment. You should now have removed 16 screws in all. Turn the Pavilion dv7 over and open the screen.
8

Insert a spudger or other flat plastic tool into the seam between the speaker grille and computer casing on the right side of the Pavilion dv7. Gently pry up to begin removing the speaker grille from the computer. As you do this, move the spudger to a new location to pry different areas until the grille is completely disconnected. Mind the ribbon cable connecting the center of the speaker grille to the logic board, and do not lift the grille any higher from the computer than the cable allows.
9

Push both sides of the speaker grille cable lock forward until the cable slides easily out of the logic board connector. Set the speaker grille aside.
10

Remove the four Phillips-head retaining screws above the top row of the Pavilion dv7 keyboard. Lift the keyboard up and forward, and place it face-down on the palm rest.
11

Unlock the Pavilion dv7 keyboard cable connector using the same method as for the speaker grille connector. Slide the cable out of the connector, remove the keyboard and set it aside.
12

Place the new Pavilion dv7 keyboard upside-down on the palm rest. Slide the keyboard into the connector, close the lock and rotate the keyboard down into the computer. Replace the four Phillips-head screws.
13

Slide the speaker grille cable into the connector and close the cable lock. Push the speaker grille into its original position above the Pavilion dv7 keyboard. Press gently on all parts of the speaker grille until it is flush with the computer casing.
14

Close the screen and turn the computer over. Replace the five screws inside the battery compartment, the screw next to the intake fan vent, the two screws inside the empty optical drive bay and the screw inside the T-shaped compartment.
15

Replace the t-shaped panel on the bottom of the Pavilion dv7 and its six screws.
16

Slide the optical drive back into its bay and replace the securing screw.

How do replace keyboard on a dell 15 ?


It’s easy to break the flimsy keys on most laptops. Sometimes it’s cheaper to find a laptop keyboardfor your model laptop elsewhere than going through the manufacture. Ifyou find yourself in this situation, you can use these steps to replacethe keyboard. take “Dell Inspiron E1505 Keyboard” for example:

3dcfe39.jpg
Dell Inspiron E1505 Keyboard US
Removing the Damaged Keyboard…
Enusre the laptop is fully powered off, unplugged from the wall, and the laptop battery taken out.
Turn the laptop over. On some models icons indicating which screwsare attached to the keyboard are displayed. If not, you may have to“eyeball” it if you can’t find a breakdown for your model (such as dell pa 12 or pa 10)online.
Remove those screws with a T-8 or Phillips screwdriver.
Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if thekeyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find if thoseplastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. Ifnot, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.
Remove the plastic pieces carefully with a toothpick or plastic pick if there is any in the way.
Unscrew any screws at the top (if necessary) and remove the keyboarditself from top to bottom. You’ll notice that the keyboard is connectedwith a thin, but wide, data cable to the system board at the bottom.
Take that same pick and lift the plastic connectors that hold in this data cable in place.
carefully remove the data cable. Now the whole keyboard should be free.
Replacing the keyboard.
Take the new laptop replacement keyboardout of the plastic, and slip the data cable back in between the plasticconnectors on the system board. Make sure it’s all the way in.
Use the pick to push the plastic connectors back into place, and make sure it’s holding the data cable in.
Slip the keyboard itself into place, from bottom to top. Make sure the screw holes or clamps line up at the top.
Refasten the keyboard in place at the top.
If you had to remove any plastic pieces, carefully snap them back in and replace any screws you had to remove.
Turn the laptop over and replace all of the keyboard screws.
Finally, put the battery back in and power on the laptop. If all hasgone well, the keyboard should be functioning like brand new.

Remove the cover on an emachine e525


Umm, well there are things like the motherboard and plamrest that have screws in them that might be holding it. You just can't remove the bottom cover, You have to start by Removing the bottom screws like you did, but then you have to remove other things before you can get the bottom case off. Also the VGA Port might have screws on both sides of it that keeps the bottom case from coming off.

Below are some steps to follow.

Look inside the battery case, hard drive case, memory case and dvd drive slot for screw. Some screws on the bottom case in inside of some of the device cases might have the icon of a keyboard next to it. Those screws hold the keyboard in place.

Turn the laptop over, remove the strip that is just above the keyboard but be careful because a cable might be attached to it. Then remove the screws that hold the keyboard in place that are under where the strip was and gently lift the keyboard out because there is definitely a cable under it.

Next you can remove the screws from the lcd hinges at the corners and lift the lcd screen off, also note that you will have to pull the antennas cable and the lcd cable when you remove the lcd.

Next start removing any screws that hold the palmrest in place. Take note of any cables that are attached to the palmrest and remove them then lift the palmrest off.

Next start removing any screws you see that hold the motherboard to the bottom case, then lift the motherboard out an start replacing the fan.

A digital camera to take pictures will be most helpful to refresh you memory of where things were.
