Re: wireless conection

The antenna is in the LCD. The antenna usually connects to a MiniPCI card situated usually next the the memory or under the keyboard. They connect via small coaxial connectors. I've never seen them connect directly to the motherboard an any notebook I've worked on.

Need to know where antenna card is located on my p25 toshiba laptop

The Wireless Module is located on the Bottom of the laptop,

The top card to the left. (With the red arrow)

White Wireless Antenna wire, and a Black Wireless Antenna wire.
You can see which terminal the White wire connects to. Leaves the other terminal for the Black wire.

Beginning page of pictorial disassembly guide, (Page 1),

Page1::Page2::Page3::Find another model, is in White, and on the Top of each page, and Bottom of each page.

The Wireless Antenna wires attach to the Wireless Module,

Looks to me the White wire to MAIN, and the Black wire to AUX.

The Wireless Antenna wires then thread up through a cavity (Hole), in the laptop body, and go through/by the Right Hinge.

From there they go into the Display Assembly, and connect to the Wireless Antenna,

Scroll down, read the description.

The Wireless Antenna wires route through CHANNELS, and LATCHES.
The Wireless Antenna wires MUST go back in the SAME routing they were originally.

Failure to do will cause the laptop to not go back together correctly, and can cause damage to the Wireless Antenna Cable. (Wires)

What are the 2 wires that run through the right side hinge?

It's your display wires. They probably got pinched too hard when it broke.

How do you fix a dm4 Hinge that is broke where it connects to the screen

You can buy hinges on ebay at:

Just type your computer make and model in the search followed by lcd hinges.

If the hinges are broken where the lcd screen connects to the base of the laptop then you will have to remove the screws from the bottom of the laptop and remove the strip that is at the top of the keyboard to get to them.

If the hinges on the side of the lcd frame is broken then you will have to remove the plastic strip that is around the lcd screen. Remove the plastic or rubber bumpers on the plastic strip then you will see screws to remove to remove the plastic strip. Then you will see hinges and screws on the side of the lcd screen that you can remove. Once you have them removed you can lean the lcd lid forward so that it drops in your hand. Don't let it drop on the keyboard, just into your hand and not too far because there is a cable on the back of the lcd that you don't want to damage. The cable can be taken loose from from the lcd at the back near the top if you like. Sometimes there might be a piece of tape securing it. If the lcd screen does not come out then there are screws on the 4 corners that is securing it and the hinges.

Compaq Presario CQ50 notebook screen goes fuzzy when opened to a certain angle (about 90 degrees). Wires being pinched at the hinges? If so how do I go about repairing this?

it sounds like you've damaged the cable that goes from your graphincs card to your screen or when you move it to 90degrees it's disconnecting. it's usually caused by someone opening the laptop and not putting the cable back in the right place, or loose screws in your hinges or a broke hinge. there are plently of videos showing how to open it up. follow one of them and make sure your wires are sitting in the right place, you don't have loose screws and the hinges aren't broken.

dodgy conection to the screen inverter take off the screen surround 4 poss 6 screws located in each corner of screen and poss 1 behind each hinge in the middle at bottom of screen make sure the pink and white wires are connected properly if not press them in if they are the problem is 1 of 2 things either the inverter is faulty or the pink and white wires are either snapped or not connected to the back of screen or motherboard correctly

Broken Inspiron 1525 Lid


To fix your laptop follow the steps given below.
  • First of all as your hinges are broken you have to buy a pair of hinges for your laptop model.
  • This hinge includes the whole assembly made up of metal with a part which attaches your screen to the laptop.
  • Now you have to open up your laptop from the backside and disassemble the upper side.
  • This will make you see the part which detaches tour screen from the laptop.Just remove the screws and your screen will be completely detached.
  • now you can replace the damaged hinges with the new one.
  • you have to remove four screws for one hinge.Two screws supporting the screen and two attaches the screen with the laptop.
  • so remove these screws and replace the hinges and pack the laptop again.
And the lines are basically due to the movement of loose connector. So while fixing please fix the connector also.

Thank you
