How do I remove the hard drive from a HP XH485 Pavilion Notebook

I think the HDD is under the keyboard on that model (doh!), which is probably why you're asking. If you can't find it under any of the access panels on the bottom, you're in for a bit more work...

1: Close the laptop and view it from the rear where all of the ports are. There are 2 hinges for the screen. Remove the 2 screws that are in those hinges. They are only holding a plastic cover in place.

2: With the screws removed, open the laptop and open completely, so the laptop is laying flat open. At the top of the keyboard is the button panel and removes fairly easily. Use a small and thin flat tip screwdriver to carefully lift up this panel. I started from the right side as it is easier to pop off. The left side is a little more stiff. Once you get most of the right side up, gently pull to the right and wiggle carefully top pull the panel completely off.

3: The set screws for the keyboard are now exposed. There are 4 of them. Remove them and you should easily be able to lift the top of the keyboard and fold it gently towards the front. Do not pull or disconnect the keyboard.

4: The Hard Drive should be completely visible now. There are 4 screws holding the caddy down. Loosen these screws completely. They should not come out. After the screws are loose, pull on the strap at the front of the caddy. Pull straight up firmly and carefully. You may want to jiggle it slightly to work it up, and be prepared for it to pop out on you. It can be in there pretty stiff, and you don't want to damage any thing.

5: If you need to, remove the drive from the caddy, take the connector on the drive pins off first, and then remove the 4 screws attaching the caddy to the HDD.

Closing it up should follow smoothly in reverse order.

I have a Dell latitude D-410; the lid is loose and it barely keeps upright

Sounds like you need hinges. Its easy to change, just pull the rubber bumpers off of the screen bezel. Remove the screws that are under these bumpers usually 5. Then work your fingers around the bezel on the inside, you should hear a popping sound and the bezel will seperate as you work around. Then pull the four screws that hold the LCD in place. Finally pull the "D" screws from the bottom of the laptop and the back of the case. Then replace them.

How do I open it to look inside?

First, lay the tv/monitor on its screen on something level and soft as not to damage the screen. Remove any visible screws that seem to attach the base to the unit. Some models you have to look under the base for pins orso to push together to slide the base from the stand, only then you could reach the 1 screw holding the monitor to the stand....Once stand removed, remove any screws you see holding the monitor casing together, usually only a few screws since they are mostly held together by plastic "clips"...Once screws are removed, then gently insert a flat(screwdriver orso) inbetween the case?housing, repeat this all the way around the case/housing till completely loose....You will prob have a few wires or maybe a ground wire that you would have to remove before completely being able to seperate both sides(front case, back case)..Sometimes you might have to unscrew and remove the skinny washer/nut around the cable input orso..
Good luck!

I need replace a cooler fan but I dont know how to open the computer to get to there.

#1 priority is to disconnect all power including battery. All screws on the bottom of the laptop have a letter which indicates what they are removed for. There is no screws specifically for the fan. You just have to pull all screws and seperate the case. Make sure you keep track of where the screws go. the main thing to remember is when the case is seperate look for the shortest way to get to the fans. Typically each component has a plug. Unplug it and remove it. Try to keep track of the order things are removed. Write it down if need be. Good luck.

I need to open my Acer laptop case to solder to power switch

Hi there,
this may not be your exact model, but should give you a good general idea on how to get inside. The key is prying up the top strip, that seems like it is going to break. Use something plastic or wood if possible. A screwdriver will leave marks.

Trouble seperating top cover from base/mobo / asus f3s notebook

Have you removed the keyboard, sometimes there is a screw under the keyboard that holds the top and bottom of the case together.
Most laptops have clips/indents that clips top and bottom half of the case together. Start on one side, preferrably at an opening where the CD/DVD drive is located and gently apply pressure to separate the case along that edge. Once you free a catch/clip start working along that edge and continuing around to each side of the case.

Back cover won't shut on 3000cn

There is a guide just at the pick up roller that can fall out of position.
Pop off the back cover (the hinges are spring loaded). There are 4/6 screws holding the paper conveying section, remove these and teh conveying section should just slide out. Disconnect the cables on the lower RHS. There should now be a whitish plastic guide with sponges on it visible. Stand it upright placing the guide behind the frame of the machine, use a prop to keep them in place, something placed into the paper traay section. then re-fit everything.

Hope this helps.

How do I get the cover off the Sony VAIO FRV26 PC Notebook

to open an FRV26:
the cover at the top of the keyboard must be removed, take a small screwdriver and run it along the lower edge of the cover behind the top row of keys. there will be 4 small slots across the edge. each of these slots has a small latch which must be pushed in to lift the cover.

once the top cover is removed, there will be a small phillips screw visible at the top of the keyboard, remove it and lift the keyboard out of the way.

under the keyboard is an aluminum shield. there are about 10 small phillips screws holding it down, most around the edges, 2 are down in small tubes. once all screws are removed, lift the cover. the fans will be visible.

WARNING: do not loosen the 4 screws around the fan cover housing. if you loosen these and lift the fans out, the main chip will come with them and must be removed from the heatsink to reinstall.
