How to remove the back cover of a Panasonic CF-W7 laptop in order to to replace the faulty exhaust fan?


LOL, ok, close the lid, remove the power cord, remove the battery, then turn the laptop over and start removing screws. You better write the screws down on a piece of paper or put them in a cup with a piece of paper that identifies where they came from. Sometimes removing the bottom is not all there is to it. You will probably have to remove the lcd screen, keyboard and palmrest to get to the fan. Good Luck!!!

Oh, by the way, there will probably be screws in the hard drive case, the battery case and all along the palmrest as it is secured to the motherboard. So you will also need to remove the hard drive, memory, CD/DvD Drive, wifi card, and most definitely the Heat Sink that most ime houses the fan and is on top of the CPU. You'll need some Thermal Paste to put back on the Heat Sin and CPU once you remove it. Otherwise most times your laptop will not boot if metal touches metal, or it will run hot and shut down if the coat of Thermal Paste is too thin or has dried up.

Have a Toshiba LAptop Model A215-S7413 and Overheats and turns off. How can I fix it or open it to clean the Dusty Fan on the Bottom? Thanks, AUgie


Hello,

Once there is no proper vent , the laptop will go off due to over heating, try to always place the laptop in a position where breeze can be reaching the panel from underneath where the fan is.

To disassemble the laptop, follow the steps below:

Turn the laptop over and remove the battery and the CD/DVD-ROM drive.
Remove two screws securing the laptop memory cover and remove it.
Remove two screws securing the laptop hard drive.
Remove the laptop memory module.
Slide the hard drive to the right to disconnect it from the system board and remove the hard drive.
Remove all marked screws on the bottom of the laptop.
Insert a sharp object under the keyboard securing strip and carefully start lifting it up. Continue removing the strip with your fingers.
Be very careful with the strip because it has a control board attached to it.
It might take some time to remove the keyboard strip.
Remove all the screws around the lower bottom and you will have direct access to the fan.

Reverse the process to reassemble the laptop back together.

Take care and good luck

Laptop will not come on


Although other possibilities can be at fault, if it does so little after power on, the CPU itself may have failed. The very first actions a PC does when turned on is to read the information stored in the CMOS to determine what hardware is on board. After doing this, it turns to the hard drive for a check to see if it is readable and then the CPU (your microprocessor) Intel or AMD takes command. If the hard drive is at fault, a message will inform you that the hard drive either cannot be found or is unreadable. If the hard drive light flashes once, then the BIOS  has made contact and then the hand-off to the CPU begins. If it is stopping dead at that point, the CPU is the prime suspect.
What fairly often happens is first a failure of the CPU fan that sits directly on the heatsink that transfers the heat from the CPU and then the heatsink is bathed in air from the fan. If the fan has failed (all too common) or is impeded by a dust accumulation, the CPU overheats and if the maker has not made any provisions to shut down the CPU, it dies.
There is a possibility that this kind of problem can be caused by a failure of the RAM (memory) but establishing what has failed is only possible through substitution of one or both of those devices.
If you are somewhat skilled, opening a laptop requires small Phillips screwdrivers to remove case screws from the side(s) and bottom, then the case still (in most cases) needs to be carefully pried open. The mating halves normally snap together as well as being fastened with said screws.
Most likely the keyboard will also have to be freed from a couple of screws and, depending on the length of the flat cable connecting it to the system board, can be pulled forward before or after the cable is pulled.
The CPU will be easy to spot; it's one of the large clumps on the board. Check its fan to see if the blade turns freely and is not impeded by dust (these things have hardly any torque), then with two fingers, positioned on either side of the blade, check to see if it rocks side to side. This would be an indication that the bearings have failed and it will need to be replaced.    The CPU is held by clips but make sure you have no static charge before removing any internal part. Just 'equalize' the charge by touching an exposed metal cover or other chassis part. Memory is normally accessible from the bottom of the case.
Now comes the bad news; there are still myriad other components that can keep a PC from booting when no error message is present since there are numerous support functions which can interfere with the startup of system. I've given you the most likely points of failure; CPU or memory.

problems will be with:-
1:- installed memory ( not enough or damaged memory module ) RAM

Solution:- remove 1 memory module from the computer ( located on the underside computer ) boot the computer. see if this helps. try changing memory between the 2 allocated slots.

Check the CPU Fan, is not clocked with dust/debris. ( Can be accessed by removing 2 screws on the underside or the laptop ) Marked with >> or similar. remove the fan, 3 small screws and brush with a soft dry paint brush or similar, remove any dust from fan and check for blockages.

run a scandisk or hard-drive checking program, to test hard-disk unit et,c.

Probably bad memory or loose CPU module. First try removing and resetting CPU. You'll need to remove Keyboard, Palmrest, and heatsink and shield beneath Keyboard. You'll need a small Phillips screwdriver to remove screws and small standard size screwdriver to loosen screw holding CPU. After removal/reset, put everything back together and try powering back on. If still same problem, replace memory located on bottom of LT located behind door. Also, you may have a memory module located under Keyboard next to CPU that may be bad.
