TOSHIBA U925T LCD replacement guide?

Well it is not that hard as it seams to be. First catch at Toshiba is plastic overlay above the keyboard it is cca 10 mm thick you should remove it with the screw driver carefuly. when removed you'll find screws unscrew them. After that remove hard drive and remove the cover for ram slots. Then remove all screws from the bottom side of the notebook. After that turn the notebook on the right side as you would do it normaly when using it. Remove the keyboard. After that remove all screws that you'll find under the keyboard. When done carefully remove the upper cover of the notebook. After that dismount the cables that come from the monitor to the mainboard and remove the screws holding the monitor brackets. Then you'll be able to remove the monitor. The monitor has litle rubber circles in every corner remove them. You'll find screws under them. Unscrew them and grab the plastic border of the monitor from the inner side and pull it towards you. So now you have removed it and the only thing that has left is to remove the side brackets you'll see little screws from the side - remove them and also remove the signal cable from the back of the monitor. When done take new monitor and do the reverse procedure.

Cant remove screen seems glued on hp pavillion dv5 1007

ummm, i'd doubt that it is glued unless you had the screen repair previously by a shoddy repair shop. First of all normally the screens are held in place by screws that are hidden by little rubber bumper covers or some type of covering on the plastic that is around the screen. Use a safety pin or small flat head screwdriver to remove the covers and expose the screws. Then use a phillips head screw driver to remove the screws. Once all the screws are removed use your fingers to slide along the inside of the plastic around the screen and pry it loose from the screen.

1 Answer r40 power jack do i remove underside cover to gain acess??.. i have loosened all screws and still seems as if there are hidden screws..

hey, dc jacks are always a nightmare to replace, ie i guess you want to replace it, you actually need to remove the motherboard in the machine so you need to remove all screws on the bottom of the laptop, then remove the keyboard, and you will find more screws under there, and you will have to remove screen etc to gain access, ie everything needs to come apart to get into them. and once its apart you will have to unsoldier the old dc jack and resoldier on the new one, if you aint good at soldiering i wouldnt recommend doing it yourself.

How to replace latch

The latch is incorporated into the palm rest which you can buy on Ebay for around 25 bucks.

The simplist way to do this is to remove all the bottom case panels to make sure there are no hidden screw holes. Remove the connectors on the wireless card, remove the battery and the three black screws inside the battery compartment. Remove the screw and the dvd drive. Remove all the screws from the bottom case. Turn the laptop back over and remove the power button cover, start prying the cover up on the right side, it will come off as long as you removed the three screws from the battery compartment. Once the cover is off, press on the small indentions around the edge of the keyboard, this will release the keyboard. Release the keyboard cable clipand remove the keyboard. Unplug all the cables from the motherboard and unplug all the flat cables from the palmrest to the motherboard. There are several screws holding the palmrest to the bottom case assembly. Remove these screws and note their location. Once the screws have been removed, start working the palmrest free from the bottom case half, if all screws have been removed will pop apart, lift it from the back and tilt it toward the front and lift the palmrest away.

How do I remove the invertor from a Qosmio F20?

The inverter is located behind the bezel at the bottom of the screen/lid and in between the hinges.
The bezel has screws that fixes it to the lid and these can be hidden by stick-on plastic covers. Use a thin sharp point to lift these plastic covers off to reveal the screws. Remove these screws.
The bezel has small plastic catches that clips it to the lid and may also be fixed to the LCD screen with double sided tape. Use a thin blade and insert it between the LCD screen and the bezel and gently ease the bezel off. Start at the bottom of the screen and gradually work along the edge and continue around each side to free the bezel.
Be CAREFUL not to scratch the LCD screen and DO NOT apply too much pressure to the face of the LCD screen because you can crack the glass surface and ruin the LCD screen.
Once the bezel is removed then you can get access to the inverter to remove it.

I have a new keyboard to install already for Twinhead Durabook R15D , however after unscrewing the two screws on the back on the panel, the panel where the power buttons are will no pop up. It seems to be...

most of these are push fit, the idea is so you break and require new.

Gentle pressure with slight lifting should spring free, no need to say, be gentle, or take to a repairer.

How to take apart hp ze5570us to see what is wrong with the plug socket for the charger? I have taken all screws out but the computer does not seem to be coming apart easily.

First of all remove all your components ie. RAM, hard drive, battery, CD/DVD drive etc. Sometimes there are screws located in the area where these components are located that secures the top and bottom halves of the case.
I suggest that as you remove the screws from the bottom of the case you take a note where the came from as some of the screws are different lengths.
There may be s strip panel between the top of the keyboard and the LCD screen, remove this first, it will be clipped in place and held with screws from the bottom of the laptop.
Next the keyboard should removed and keyboard cable.
Look closely for screws hidden behind plastic stick on covers, you need to use a sharp thin blade to lift off these covers to reveal the screws behind the covers.
The top and bottom halves of the case is usually held in place with plactic clips, start at an opening and carefully pull apart until a clip releases and the work along that edge to release more clips. Continue along each edge until you separate the case.
The LCD screen is usually secured with screws on the back edge of the laptop and possible with screws near the edge of the motherboard. Take care to disconnect the video connector.
The motherboard needs to be removed from the bottom half of the case so you can access the power connector.
Take careful note where you remove each screw as you need to put them back in reverse order.

Best of luck, have fun.

I have a Lifebook C1020 The power connection point seems faulty - wiggle the plug at all and the power goes off - the battery is dead and won't recharge even if I jam the power lead in place in the socket....

No need for a hammer.
Remove the battery, CD drive etc. sometimes there are screws hidden in these areas. Some screws are hidden under plastic covers, remove these to reveal the screws.
On quite a few laptops I have dismantled the top half and bottom half of the case are held together by plastic catches. The best way to separate the case is to start at an opening eg, where the CD drive is located and gently pull apart until the catch releases, continue around this edge and then around the other edges to release/separate the case.

I want to open my acer aspire 5050 to fix my problem but I couldnot inspite of taking out all screw from bottom and behind the laptop. Any advise with or without pictures is appreciated. Thanks sa

Removed the cover along the top (Where the power buttons is) by removing the three screws along the back of the laptop. You need to be careful removing this as it has small plastic clips that are very easily snapped. Once that’s off you can remove the two screws that hold the Keyboard in place. Lift the keyboard and release the catch on the Keyboard cable on the motherboard. Allows you to lift the keyboard away.
With the keyboard removed, remove the screw that’s holding the CD/DVD drive in place and slide the drive out (the release for the battery on the underside sometimes catches the drive too, so if its sticking just slide the battery release over)
Then remove the cable for the LCD display and pull the wireless connection cable through the hole, Remove the screws holding the Display in place and remove completely.
Remove the 2 screws holding in the Power button board and lift it off.
Carefully remove the 2 cables for the Touchpad, Being careful with the ribbon cable it’s again it’s easy to destroy these types of cable.

Flip the laptop over and remove all the screws from the underside, this will make it seem like its ready to come apart, but it’s not. Flip it back over and remove the top. Next to the connector where the battery plugs in you’ll find one final screw to remove. Now on the back of the laptop you’ll find your VGA port, remove the two nuts on this (long nosed pliers do this job easily or a small socket if you have one that small) once these are removed lift the motherboard from the front side of the laptop and slide it out, you now have your motherboard out.
