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!!.

Laptop model: HP 2000-379wm Where can I buy the display assembly (the entire top half)? Henges and all. I saved it from slamming on the cement from 2nd floor lol. Instead the entire top half broke.This was...

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!

How to Open a Laptop Battery & Replace the Lithium Ion

Laptop batteries, like all rechargeable battery packs, lose their charging capacity over time. Because new Laptop batteries are expensive, replacing the individual cells inside the battery casing can save a lot of money. However, rebuilding a battery sometimes does not work as expected, so it’s important to be willing to purchase a new laptop battery if the procedure fails.
HP Pavilion DV1100 Battery 12 cells
1、Allow the laptop battery to run down completely. Turn off your laptop, then remove the battery. Write down the model number located on your battery to help identify the type of Li-ion replacement cells you need to purchase.
2、Split open a small section of the laptop battery pack (at the seam) with a screwdriver or craft knife. Continue to pry the plastic case loose moving around the outer edge until the entire top is free. This may take a bit of force.
3、Note the number of cells inside the case (usually four to eight). Write down the part number and voltage information printed on the cell casings. Draw a diagram showing the arrangement of the cells and how they are connected, or take a few photos to help with reassembly.
4、Purchase the correct number and type replacement batteries from online shop such as, based on your battery model and cell specifications. Six Li-ion cells typically cost around $30 to $40.
5、Carefully remove each cell using a craft knife and wire cutters as necessary. Each battery pack is different, but the cells are usually wrapped in a plastic casing with metal contacts attached to one end. Lay the metal contacts, wires and casing material aside.
6、Use double-sided tape or a solder gun (only if necessary) to attach the metal contacts to the cells and circuit board. When finished, the old cells should be completely stripped (naked) and the new cells should look like the old ones as much as possible.
7、Place the new cells inside the case, referring to your diagram or photos if necessary. Glue the battery(Compaq DV6000 Battery) pack top back on. Charge the new battery for at least 24 hours before using it.
Tips & Warnings
Keep an eye on the new battery while it charges for the first time. If the contacts are not connected properly, the battery could overheat and cause damage to the laptop.

Web cam wires are broken

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.

Laptop won't power on with ac adapter or battery

Could be a combination of things.

1) Battery is low. Not enough power to turn the laptop on.
Caused by;

2) AC adapter has a plug on the end of the cable. The plug plugs into a DC Power Jack on the laptop.

The DC Power Jack is bad.

2a) The DC Power Jack has a bad connection to the motherboard, (Cracked solder joints), and/or the jack itself is bad.

2b) Center Pin is loose in the jack's mount.
The back of the Center Pin where it mounts has become loose.

2c) The plastic body of the jack, which composes the jack's case, is cracked. This allows movement of the Center Pin.

2b, and 2c cause a bad connection with the AC adapter plug.

No charge to the Battery, no power to the laptop.

[ If this is the case the DC Power Jack needs to be resoldered to the motherboard. The cracked solder joints need to be re-melted, (Reflowed)
Entire laptop needs to be disassembled down to the bare motherboard in your hand.
(No Processor, Ram Memory, or any adapter cards mounted to the motherboard. Nada)

The DC Power jack needs to be replaced.
This entails disassembling the entire laptop, down to just the motherboard in your hand. (Same as above)

The old DC Power Jack is de-soldered, and a new one soldered in place.

Very FEW computer repair shops have the necessary skill level.
They just want to replace the entire motherboard.
IF one is available.
More Ka-Ching for them also. ]

3) The AC adapter is bad.
Not providing power to the laptop, to charge the Battery, nor give power to the laptop without the Battery.

AC adapter cord from adapter to plug, which plugs into the laptop, (DC Power Jack), may have a break in it.

May be an intermittent contact provided by wiggling the cord.
If this is the case the wires have stretched, and broken.
Wiggling causes the wires to briefly touch, and make contact.

Where this cord meets the plug itself. A lot of times there is a break in the wires in this area.

Solution is to replace the AC adapter. There are universal AC adapters you can buy, or perhaps Gateway still has some for sale.

The laptop overheats and shuts off

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.

No bluetooth device

Hello friend. Actually in the Acer Aspire 5720 model (in the main Acer website) it says Bluetooth 2.0+E.D.R (manufacturing option); which means there might be Bluetooth pre-installed in your laptop or not installed at all.
Even if you have a Bluetooth switch on the laptop, it doesnt necessarily mean that there is Bluetooth.
So, I think in this case, there is no Bluetooth device in your laptop.

Or if you are sure that there is Bluetooth module in your laptop then try reinstalling the bluetooth drivers.
But in most cases, Acer laptops (most of them) dont have Bluetooth pre-installed though the laptops have a bluetooth switch.
Hope I am not confusing and this would be helpful.

Laptop wont start up

I had the same problem. It is actually very common problem with the Maxin chip near the processor. The solder joins become cracked over time from the motherboard flexing when the lid is opened and closed.
A temp solution is to press down firmly with the palm of your hand around the F12 and leter P button areas. Make sure you do this with the laptop on a flat surface.
Bingo.. your laptop should then boot. However, moving the laptop may once again flex the motherboard and the unit will freeze again.

Good luck.
