My system is not displaying but still work what to do pls

Your question seems tricky , if there is no screen display how does it work? however if there is display when you connect to an extternal monitor then the fault seems to be with the LCD. it can failure of the back light circuit- the inverter drive or it can be a fault in the line to the display through the hinges or the failure of the LCD/drive.

Power window on driver side will not rolll up. Need a way to get it up temporarily while I am traveling.

You will have to open the door panel and remove the motor to disengage it from the window. Then you can prop the window up with a piece of wood. See my tip at for more help.

How to increase message memory in sony ericsson w700i

Hi jonothomask,
The Sony Ericsson W700i comes with 34 Mbytes of internal memory & the phone comes with a 256 Mbytes Memory Stick PRO Duo™ which will store approximately sixty four music tracks. The incoming messages will be stored in the internal memory only. So it cannot be extended even by the extternal memory card.

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

good luck with your fix.
have a nice day.

I actually have an HP Pavillion zd8000 where I need to install a new DVD "D" Drive. I have removed all of the screws, including the ones under the battery, by the Hard Drive, the back base of the monitor...

Generally, the optical drive can be removed without taking the casing apart, just one screw holds it in under the laptop. If yours is one of those that does need to come apart, you will need to make sure that the two screwsat the rear of the laptop are undone. When you take the bexel off where the power button is, there will be two more screws holding the hinge in, they need to come out too. Then you need to remove the LCD screen before the rest of the case will come apart.

double check for screws. there is a screw or two that your missing. normally the unit will come apart when all screws are removed. also make sure that you are not standing on carpet. when working inside of the computer.

The connector of my seagate free agent 160gb is broken, can i bypass the connection with an other adaptor in the internal hard drive

Solution No1:
You'll need to take it apart desolder existing cable and solder a new one (standart you can get in any sho).
Note: If you'll mix up wires than you can damage your motherboard or hard drive itself.

Solution No2:
Take it apart, remove hard drive, buy a new 2.5" SATA Caddy and fit you hard drive to it.

it is not recomeded to take it apart to get to the hard drive.
does it not work???
if you still need it apart. try lifting the rubber feet from it.
also this maybe a snap together unit with small amounts of glue at the corners. you may need to wedge something in the groove.
good luck. i dont have one in front of me so i can't see the unit.
