Thanks, I had already done this but it never became "loose" enough that it felt OK to pry it apart. Must be some hidden "catch' that needs to be released in some manner. Or, maybe, I missed a screw or two but I don't think so.

First remove your battery, RAM, and harddrive. There are screws on the bottom of your case. Remove all of these screws, and all the screws that are in and around the RAM and hard drive area. The bottom of the case should get loose, but be careful because there may be ribbons attached to the bottom (most likely not though).
Let us know if this works!

When I switch on my pc the monitor and the CPU start blinking but take a long time to boot. When cchecked on FixYa I found only questions and no answers. Where and when do I get the answers? Got it?

Please, describe the problem with more details. What part ot the PC and what part of the monitor blinks and how long does it takes to boot? Do you see somethnig on the monitor before booting completes? Slow boot and blinkig are very common problems, related both hardware and software. Inspect the motherboard for inflated capacitors. Replace capacistors or the motherboard if unable to complete sucessfully capacitor replasement. Inspect and replace capacitors on monitors' power supply.Check the same in PCs' power supply. Check the harddrive for bad sectors using Hiren Boot CD and the tool called "MHDD" in it's DOS menu. Transfer the information to a new harddrive and replace it with the new one.Check for viruses and unwanted software. Check for installed 'Microsoft Office File Validation Add-On" and remove it. Check if there are more than one antivirus program. Leave only one and remove the rest.

Acer 5570z will not boot up or turn on

It could be one of the following:
1. Bad/damaged power jack.
2. Bad motherboard.

DC Jack diagnosis:
1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

Access the BIOS settings (you'll see a message on which key to press to access your BIOS setup when the PC boots up) and you'll be able to access the internal video options.

Dell latiyude C400

The system is in a reboot loop. Possible causes are:

Corrupt installation of Windows
Bad Hard Drive
Bad Motherboard.

Try booting to the Windows XP CD, see if you can access recovery console and run CHKDSK /R If that doesn't resolve, boot to the resource CD, and run diagnostics on the HDD

If you can't, boot to the XP CD or Resource CD, try removing the HDD and booting to the CD. If the system boots then, the HDD is most likely bad.

If you can't boot to any device, try RAM modules individually, see if system boots with only 1 module installed. If no change, then motherboard is bad. On a system this age, I do not recommend replacing a motherboard as it is not cost effective

Audi A4 need to replace rear brake light on audi a4

Inside the boot is a plastic cap embeded in the boot liner. Remove the cap to reveal a screw. Undo the screw and the whole rear light cluster will come away in a sideways and not rearward direction to reveal all of the bulbs. Hope this helps.

Motherboard welcome screen is not visible on booting and pmain problem is after installation an OS it is not accessible

There is a problem with your hard drive. Either it is faulty and cannot be accessed or it is not in your BIOS boot sequence.

When it is starting, go into the bios settings and verify that the first boot device is set to your hard drive. If it is and still does the problem, then your hard drive is faulty and needs replaced.
