Re: removing thekaypad

Try loosing the screw the connects the keyboard to the machine using a screw driver.
You can locate that at the back of the laptop.
with the help of a flat screw driver and a little force, you should be able to remove it..
Please try and get back to me and let me know the results..

Good luck

It says missing operating system and i don't know if my hard disk has crashed or what

You have a crash on your hands. Try removing the hdd and ram - cleaning the ends or terminals on the pieces you CAREFULLY remove and then place them back into the PC. First remove and clean the HDD - then remove the RAM - - if you have more than on 'stick' of ram - pull them both - clean them both then STOP. Put just ONE stick of ram in the machine and try to start it - if it doesn't start remove that stick of ram and try the other. If the Laptop comes on then try the other stick. Pay attention because if one is bad it will stop the pc from working. Sadly it sounds like you will need to either repair or reinstall the Operating system. However there are things you can do to find out what you must do. Try these things and let me know how it works out.

Ram install for fujitsu c2330

Hi there. Power down and remove the battery from your notebook. Look along the bottom of the laptop for a plate with slits for air circulation and a label - something like Memory, RAM, C/M. Undo the screws and remove the plate. You will see RAM that looks almost identical to the RAM you have purchased. If it does not, you have the wrong plate. Put it back in and try a different one. Once you can see the RAM, you will notice a pin on each side of the stick. Push both of those towards the outside of the laptop, and the stick of RAM will "pop" out. Pull it straight out along the same angle it currently sits at. To install the new RAM, push the ram in, aligning it the same way the old RAM came out, and then push it down towards the ground until it clicks. Alex

The :; key sticks/slow in responding - can the individual key top be removed to clean/remove dust underneath.

Yes but it is a pain to replace!
Push the right hand side of the key down whilst sliding the key a few milimetres to the left.
Re assembling is obvious if you examine the spring fixing and probably easiest left like that.
Have hours of fun putting them back.

Just need to know how to insert a new memory stick I bought for my dinosaur 3000. Fry's salesman said I could find a step-by-step instruction. THX!

Dinosaur, as in a old acer aspire 3000 or what?

Most likely two screws on the bottom of the laptop that hold the memory cover closed, inside you will find 1-2 memory modules, you may have to remove one of the old ones and then install the new one, or if one is free install the new one there.

When I power on my acer 5100 ot beeps three times and stays on.


In a lot of laptops 3 beeps on post check during boot up means an issue with either internal memory or the memory sticks in the laptop. If you know how to take out the memory sticks that is the first thing to check. To do so locate the memory sticks. Before taking them out make sure you are in a as static free environment as you can be. Idealy you can use a wrist ground strap to ground yourself to the laptop to eliminate any possible static built up in your body from discharging into the memory stick and possibly damaging it but I have changed many and never used one an never had one fail.
I try to do it in a non carpeted room. Remove the battery and make sure it is of course unplugged. Also after unplugging and removing the battery I hit the power button so if there is any stored energy inside the motherboard it will discharge in a way. I have a sager with such huge capacitors in it it actually momentarily lights up the power on led when I do this so yes there can be trapped energy so I reccomend this step. There are two tabs on either side of the memory stick that you carefully push outward and this allows the stick to release (pop up) evenly pull it out of the socket. Using a clean eraser lightly rub the gold contacts to clean them if they seem dirty. Shouldnt be on a laptop that new but never know. Make sure no eraser residue is on the stick and put it back in the slot and push down till locks back into tabs.
Try booting up the laptop if this doesn't work try using only one of the two memory sticks at a time to test if only one of the two is bad. If this does not work than if it is a internal memory problem you will have to have it serviced.
If this does not solve it then you could try removing one at a time and booting after removing the wireless card, cd/dvd (optical drive), hard drive, modem or memory card reader board ect. ect. but some of these may take a bit more experience to remove for some.
I am only self taught at laptop repair but I am no rookie to electronics either so hope this helps.

Won't run

you have,nt seated the memory module back correctly.
push module in at an angle, usually about 45 degrees.
while pushing it back in, apply pressure, to push down towards the motherboard. ** check for any specs of Dust**
also check that you have,nt knocked the hard-drive ribbon cable in the process of cleaning.
