I dont know the recommended way but this is what I did.

Make a screw diagram of the bottom.

Find a work space were your least likely to loose those little screws.

Remove all of screws from the bottom including 1 hidden under the bottom right rubber pad and one behind the battery. Plus 1 or 2 more under the cpu/fan cover (bottom opposite of the power jack side) Place them on the diagram location so you get them back in the right place.

Then pull off the mouse panel by pulling up on the front and sliding it away from the comp. It wont come off completely unless you unplug it I just let it hang.

Next move keyboard toward the mouse pad then up and there is another screw there (possibly hidden under tape)

Remove the cd drive.

I only pride the case open a little to do the board change.

It was a while ago so I might be off a bit and you might not have to all steps like the cd drive. I was learning as I went. Careful everything is reseated properly before putting it back together including the usb jack which came out on me while i was working.

Good Luck

Cahinsaw has no power. Stepped on the cord. Probably pulled it loose. Loose pwer cord. How to open the case and remove the old power cord. power cord

Most times a break in the wiring is not visible and can occur inside only one wire in the mains power cord several centimeters from the power appliance. The first thing to ascertain is whether there is continuity between the plug pins to the junction. You will need to use a polarity tester. If you don't have a multi-meter you can use a small battery and torch bulb and run them in parallel. Test both the positive and negative wires. If one wire fails to provide continuity then rewiring will solve your problem.

My 20^ iMac do not turn on. Help!!

Relax. Check the cord if it is connected properly. It might be that the plug is loosed, some wires are open or the outlet is defective. Try to plug to other outlet. If the problem persists. Look at the power diode if it is off the power supply is defective. Listen to the fan in the power supply inside the casing if it is working. If it is not, then the fuse is busted. If you can take the busted fuse out then ok otherwise, you the service of the technician. If you have AVR connected to it, check the AVR if it is working, check if the switch is on, the lights on etc, same thing also with UPS. Contact me then if the solutions are not working.

Check for power in the plug to the main switch. In most cases the long wires break or damage affter prolonged use. If the switch activate power then check power tilll motor. If so the motor is defective and might be though of for estimation of cost. Look out also for a load trip switch.
If motor brushes are bad clean and set but if winding is open you need to estimate.

On/off switch for HP Pavilion a324x

You should open up the case and makesure it is still plugged in. If so look in the local phone book for a pc repair shop. They should keep items like that in stock. You can probably just buy one for maybe $10 and put it in yourself.

Main control blinks clean 7 times and disables the start/resume keypad

Open the rear panel and check with a multi-meter if the heater get power (as per program's sequence). In case it get power and doesn't heat - you should replace the heater. In case it doesn't get power : - Check for a disconnected wire. - Check that the water level switch work properly. - Check the thermistor. If the level switch or the thermistor are defective,it will prevent power to the Timer. Defective part should be replaced. In case they are OK, the problem is with the timer. Good luck !!
