Hi there,

Well first of all open up your computer and look for a smallish box inside your computer, its normally located below the cd/dvd drive.....the hard drive for my computer is about 10 cm. They are usually in racks (mounted), and there will be a cord running into it that looks very different to the power supply cords. Please follow the below link to know your HDD place -

(Just copy and past the above link in your web browser)

Good Luck!!

Dvd player 3280S - plays movei till about halfway, tehn the picture sticks. It seems taht teh disc continues to turn, but the picture doesnt change.

This symptom indicates that your lens motor drive chip is over heating and failing after half an hour, so the laser unit does not read further. You will need professional help as the IC ( chip ) involved is an smd type which needs very good soldering experience to remove and fix. The spare will cost about 5-8 $ plus labor.

I have a 2005 equinox and had to replace the radiator. Some Transmission fluid leaked out and I would like to "top off" the fluid. Do I have to remove the battery casing to get acces to the top...

No, you add fluid in the same hole the check stick is located. Remove teh dip stick and put funnel in teh hole and add fluid in the same location. if that is a manual transmission you will ahve to locate teh check hole on the side of the transmission, normally passenger side or rear of teh transmission and add fluid at that location. Since the lines connected to your radiator I assume you have an automatic since manual transmissions normally do not.

How to replace battery in the Schiller AT-2 light EKG machine

The battery in the Schiller AT2 is as 12 volt 2.2 AH battery commonly available from R&d batteries, there part number is 5515. To replace it requires disasemble of the unit. Note that you should never disasemble this unit while it is plugged in. Also there are several cable that attach teh top housing to the PC board, and if you are not dillagent about not pulling these vcables apart while disasembling the unit, you can do expensive damage. Bearing that in mind, I would proceed as follows:Turn the unit upside down on top of a towed or other soft surcace to prevent scratching the soft plastic of the upper housing. around the perimeter of the case you will see several screws, i think 8 if i remember correctly. Repmove them and place them in a cup or other container. Grip the top and bottem cases together firmly and flip teh unit back upright. GENTLY lift up the top housing, and VERY CAREFULLY slide it about 3 or so inches to the left. This will expose the battery. just lift it out and replace it with the new one.Take care to reconnect the wires in the same position as teh original battery. Mis wiring the battery will cost you hundreds of dollars. The wires connect via slide on spade connectors. grip them by the connector itself(not the wire going into it) and gently rock it side to side while pulling, it will eventually come off the battery terminal. Resemble the unit in the reverse order. Plug the unit in and fully check it prior to re-installing the screws in the bottom of the unit in case you pulled a cable loose. As an alternative, you can detach the cables from the pc board and place the top cover to the side while replacing the battery, but be VERY careful with the cables. I recommend that you have a qualified individual preform this replacement for you. the cove being removed exposes high voltage, and also presents the risk of expensive damage to your unit.

Can't get teh steering wheel off (ignition switch needs replacing

If you took the center nut and washer off then the steering wheel should come off. It is a splined fit- try a little persuasion with a rubber mallet.
BTW... there is no reason to remove the dashboard or steering wheel to replace the ignition switch!

I recent got my purse stolen with all of my keys in it. that also includes the gas cap key for my 1997 dodge neon. I had a spare key for the door and ignition. but i now need gas and i have no key! what...

you may need to call a lock smith. if you attempt to remove the cap by force you will damage the filler neck adn cause an evap system leak. if you cut the cap off i would be concerned with debris falling into the fuel tank and causing drivability problems not to mention the possibility of making a spark at the top of you fuel filler neck,.... well you see where that is going. maybe there is a number stamped on teh cap near teh key hole that would be helpful to teh locksmith.

Sony NW-A1000 will not play,

If you get the spinning disc error on your sony nw a1000 it means the hardrive is knackerd.
The hardrive in the sony NW A1000 is a segate ST1.2 6gb and these can be bought off ebay for around £8. If you can't find a 6gb one you can fit an 8gb hardrive BUT your NW A1000 will only use 6gb of it.

If you search on the internet you can find instructions on how to remove the back cover of your NW A1000 which is very easy to do! You then unplug the hardrive (be very careful!) and replace it with the new seagate hardrive. Turn the NW A1000 on and go to the home menu, select "settings", then select "intialize disc" and it will format your new hardrive so that it can work with NW A1000.
