Hello there Joe,

To be able to open your Dell DImension's casing, you will need to PUSH down on the lever there at the back. This will open it and then you will be able to install a new ethernet port to your motherboard.

Hope this helps. Goodluck!

How to remove washer lid to replace lid lock


Remove power to the unit.
Locate the console and remove two phillips head screws. Most
models have them in the front, bottom of the console. In some of the newer models they are located in the back, bottom of the console. Some washers require you to remove two end caps on the console to access the screws.
After you remove the two screws, slide the console slightly forward and then up. The console will then hinge to the back of the washer.
With the console now hinged back, locate the lid switch harness.
Disconnect the harness and check for resistance between the 2 grey wires (outside) on the lid switch connector connected to top of washer. With the lid down the circuit should read no resistance. If the circuit is open(infinite resistance) then the switch needs to be replaced. You can also use a insulated jumper on the lid switch harness to determine if its the switch.
To replace the lid switch you will now have to remove the cabinet. Use a flat head screwdriver to remove the two clips holding the back of the washer to the outer shell of the washer.
Disconnect the lid switch harness(If not still disconnected).

You can now pull the outer shell away from the washer. Do this by
grasping the outer shell (I open the lid and grab it there.) and tilt the shell forward (toward you) and out. The shell is now removed and you can see the tub. Be careful not to bend the outside walls of the shell when removing and setting aside. This will help greatly when reinstalling the shell. Remove the 2 screws attaching switch to cabinet. Remove the screw connecting the ground on the cabinet. Use a flat blade screwdriver to push tabs on lid switch connector block to remove. Finally remove the whole harness from the 2 remaining retainer clips under the cabinet. Install new lid switch harness assembly and reassemble washer.

I need to put a new door handle on a kitchen aid microwave. It is above the stove, the model number is khms155lss-4


The diagram can be found at
http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/W0601206-00002.png

Open the door all the way and lift it up (press on bottom of door) to lift the hinge pins out, then pull away from the unit (walk backward) to remove it.

Then, the remove the inner plastic shell from the outer plastic shell by prying gently around the outer shell. There are no screws holding it together.

Once apart, you can see the screw (item 8 in the drawing). You can remove the screw and replace the handle. reverse the process to get it together.

Make sure the door is all the way back in tightly and firmly just as it is now or you can have a microwave leak. Work carefull and, if you have a digital camera or a camera phone, take pictures of each step to make sure you know how it goes back together.

cheers.

How can I flash my xbox 360? it wont recognize the new dvd rom drive.


Disconnect all cables from the Xbox 360 and remove the faceplate from the front of the console. Lift the plastic tabs on the outer shell and remove the plastic casing from the machine. Unscrew the Torx size 7 screws and lift open the metal cover. Unplug both the power and SATA cables from the rear of the DVD drive and lift it out of the console. Replace it with the new DVD drive, and connect the power cable to the unit. Connect your SATA cable to the DVD drive and a free SATA port on your computer.Turn on your computer and open a web browser. Download JungleFlasher and run the program. As of September 2010, JungleFlasher is the most stable and up-to-date flashing program for Xbox 360, and it is also the only program capable of flashing Xbox 360 drives from within Windows (earlier programs used MS-DOS). Click "Flash .BIN to DVD" in the program's main menu and select your Xbox 360's DVD drive. The program will flash the new DVD drive for use with your Xbox 360 console.Turn off the computer once the flashing process is complete and disconnect your SATA cable from the DVD drive and your PC. Reconnect the Xbox 360 SATA cable to the new DVD drive, then close the metal cover on the console. Rescrew the Torx size 7 screws and replace the outer plastic shell on the Xbox 360. Return the faceplate to its original position then reconnect all external cables and accessories to the console. Power on the Xbox 360 and the replacement DVD drive will function normally.

C5180 all in one is not connecting via ethernet.


Before you begin: Check requirements Make sure you have the following items:
  • One of the following types of wired access points or routers: Ethernet router, switch, hub, or wireless router with Ethernet ports
  • A computer that connects to the wired access point or router
  • A Category 5 Ethernet cable to use for the HP product. (Do not use a standard telephone cable.) Figure 2: Cable comparisonc01710115.gif 1 - Ethernet cable 2 - Telephone cable (do not use) Although an Ethernet cable looks similar to standard telephone cable, each has a different plug and a different number of wires. The plug on an Ethernet cable (also called an RJ-45 connector) is wide, thick, and always has eight wires. The plug on a telephone cable is narrower and has between two and six wires.
Are you changing from USB connection to Ethernet connection?If you previously installed the software for a USB connection and now want to change to an Ethernet connection, follow these instructions to remove the USB installation before continuing.
  1. Click Start , click Printers and Faxes , and then right-click the icon for HP product.
  2. Click Delete to remove the product.
  3. Disconnect the USB cable from the product and the computer.
Step one: Connect the HP All-in-One to the network
  1. Remove any plug or protective cover from the Ethernet port on the back of the product. Figure 3: Remove plugc01710117.gif
  2. Connect the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the product, and then connect the other end of the cable to an available port on the wired access point or router. Figure 4: Connect the Ethernet cablec01710118.gif
  3. Connect the power cord to the product, and then plug it into an electrical outlet.
  4. Turn the product on.
Step two: Decide whether to install with the product CD or download the software Don’t worry if you don’t have the product CD! You can download the most current software available for your product from the HP Web site at no cost. The following information might help you decide which installation method to use:
CD Download For a new product: CD installation is a quick and easy method. If you do not have a CD, you can download the software you need. For an older product: CD installation might not work if you are installing the product on a computer running a newer operating system that released AFTER the HP product released. Downloading the software provides the best results for your older product. Even though it takes more time than using the CD, downloading the latest software can help you avoid installation issues.

Downloading is the recommended method if your computer operating system released after the HP product released. About the software: The software on the CD is current to the date of the product release. The software that you can download from the HP Web site is the most current software available for your product. HP often updates software and drivers AFTER the product and CD release to the market.Step three: Install the software

Ethernet


Take the panel off computer. The easiest way to know where it is to look on the back of computer and find Ethernet port then look inside. To remove it you will more than likely need to unscrew a screw and then rock the card gently side to side until it comes out. When installing make sure it is completely in slot connect anything that was connected to bad card. secure the screw and test it out. I have been through this so my suggestion is to leave panel off until you know it works.

How do I change the Drivers side Turn signal bulb in the mirror?


Actually the first answer was right.  On my 2007 Sprinter chassis, the side mirrors have an upper flat mirror and a lower convex mirror.  The upper mirror comes off exactly as described; by tilting it so that it faces down, and then gently lifting it from the top to slide it off the track. (On my sprinter the mirrors are heated, so there are wires that remain attached when you slide it off. This reveals three screws that you can get at with a torex screw driver without needing any flexible shafts etc.  It appears that there is a fourth screw or clip of some sort on the bottom, but I was not able to figure out how to get the bottom convex mirror off to get at it.  That would enable the removal of the full shell. Even without that bottom screw I was able to flex the shell enough to get the turn signal lens assembly out.  But removing it entirely requires reaching in with needle nosed pliers and rotating the bulb assembly a quarter turn, and then reversing the whole assembly to get it back.  In my case I was replacing the turn signal lens, but it should work the same for replacing the bulb. Good luck.

Cannot get the 120amp Alt fuse out of the fuse block


You need to remove all of the bolts that holds the fuseboc onto the inner fender. The fusebox seperates into two pieces. The outer shell drops away from the center by depressing and releasing the lock tabs. After the outer shell is lowered, the bolts for the 120 amp fuse are visible.

Loose freezer door handle


Maytag uses two types of door handle mounts. first look at the bottom side of door handle to see if there are tiny set screws. If there is you might just have to tighten them with an allen wrench. If it doesn't you need to grasp the handle firmly and pull it towards your left, sometimes they can be a little stubburn and require a light wrap with a rubber mallet. This will remove the handle. In this case there will be a clip inside the handle end, check to see if it is bent or if the handle itself is cracked, although I have seen some where the handle mount has become loose and that can be tighted by turning clockwise.
