Re: Laptop case melted
WOW, this is a new one...could you possibly state the brand of the laptop, if you knew, you could buy a casing i suppose? um, ask your friend, once you know, post it and ill tell you. i dont see any reason why not. if not then i suggest you take it down to an electronics shop, they might have one?. but your best shot is the company of the laptop, they should have one, but as long as it works, there should not be too much of a problem!!. but post the brand asap, i will try and find you a case once i know!!.

Fuses in microwaves are generally located behind the control panel. They can be close to the panel, midway back in the microwave case, or all the way back on the rear wall of the housing. Accessing the fuse will usually require removal of the entire outer case, and in some instances, the removal of additional interior panels. If you decide to do the job, be sure to replace the fuse with one exactly like the ceramic one you find in there. Glass fuses are not designed to handle the power that goes through these ceramic fuses.
You should google search online as to instructions/how to guides. Type in "laptop hinges repair guide" and you should get good results.
As for buying hinges, I would search on ebay or online for hinges AFTER finding a good guide (the guide should tell you what you need). The replacement hinges should not be too costly assuming you only need to replace those.
This will probably entail taking your laptop case out, so I would recommend checking into dust cleaning from your laptop/risks just incase dust gets inside when you take off the outer case. But a guide should be more useful than my speculations about your problem/need.
If you still need assistance or more details/directed advice please respond and I'll be happy to help!
Webcams are great tools to use when chatting with friends, colleagues or loved ones separated by long distances. If your webcam breaks, you can replace it instead of buying an external webcam that you have to carry around and remember to attach to your computer every time you want to use it.
Disconnect your computer from all electrical outlets, close all programs, shut it down and remove the battery. Remove the screws from the bottom of your laptop until you are able to remove the outer casing and set it to the side. Remember where each individual screw belongs because not all tin screws are created equal. Try laying out the disassembled elements in a pattern to remember where everything goes. Remove the motherboard and keyboard if necessary. The goal is to be able to detach the top part of the laptop from the bottom section, and removing these elements may give you the necessary access to do that. Remove these elements by carefully taking out the screws and disconnecting the necessary delicate wires and cables with your fingers. Once again, remember where everything goes so your laptop will work correctly once you reassemble it. Disconnect the top part of your laptop from the bottom by disconnecting cables that connect to the screen from the motherboard. Separate the outside casing of the top part of your laptop by using the plastic putty knife to pry it open or by removing more screws. Locate the webcam and find where it attaches to the rest of the laptop. Remove the old webcam and replace it with the new one in the exact location and placement of the wires. You may have to remove more parts in order to access the entire webcam assembly. Do so carefully. Reassemble your laptop. Go backwards according to how you disassembled the laptop and according to how you used your pattern to remember the exact placement of each element within your laptop. Make sure every screw, cable and wire is returned to its correct home and that everything fits together properly. Replace the battery and plug your laptop into a power source. Turn on your computer and check to make sure your new webcam works.
The DC jack in the laptop may need to be replaced, go to www.ebay.com Type: make and model of laptop, refine search to DC jack or scroll through the list. The laptop must be completely dismantled down to the motherboard and removed from bottom base, soldering equipment a must with the skills to use it, suggest a computer repair shop.
Hi Debra, if it is a laptop k/b you need to have it checked by a technician, if it is a desktop PC keyboard try unplugging it and replugging it into a similar plug,there are 2 types, round with pins, called PS2,(same for mouse),(be careful for pins orientation), or flat connector called USB, in which case all plugs do the same job. if still not working it may be really dead and needs to be replaced, you can make sure by borrowing one from a friend just for testing, or test your K/B on another PC, to make sure it is only the K/B and not the computer itself.
You should try to connect your laptop to external display and use the same resolution as on your laptop internal screen. If the picture is good, there are 2 possible solutions:
1. The wire connecting the screen and your laptops motherboard could be lose. Use screwdriver to disassemble the laptop so you can see both ends of that connector and make sure that they are on place. In some laptops it is enough just to take off the keyboard and you can see the other end of the cable. Try to push that one to place before dissassembling more.
2. If that doesn't help, I would try to change the entire screen. While doing this you should remember that you laptop doesn't necessarily need the original spare part, you might find one for free from one of your friends old broken laptops, as I did, it doesn't even have to be same make and model. (Mine was packard-bell laptop, and I took the replacement screen from my friends old HP, the most important thing is that it is the exact same size).
If the picture is the same when connected to external display (this is wery unlikely in this case), your display card is broken, in some laptops you can replace it, but in most cases you cant. To help you furter, I would need to know your laptops make and model.
Good day. You haven't mention how old is your laptop. Laptop battery operating hours diminished as it gets old. This is just normal for the type of battery being used in our laptop (also in cellular phones). If your laptop is really that old, there is a need to buy a new battery pack, Just be sure of the brand/model before your buy. In some cases, the cause of your problem is in the charger or the charging mechanism. You may test your charger/adapter using voltmeter for the actual voltage reading and comparing this to the rating stated in the outer case of the adapter. If you observed a discrepancy in the reading, then buy new adapter.
Just let me know if you need some more help. Good luck.
In case you can open (I mean disasemble) the laptop do it and clean every air inlet - outlet. In case you can't use a soft brush and clean the inlet - outlet from the outer side. After that you may use CLEAN AIR in order to improve the cleaning effect (not before the brush because all the dust will go in the laptop). Leave the laptop some minutes to calm and check the results.
In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply. If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.
