Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I'm trying to open a Benq Joybook 8000 laptop, to replace the hard drive. There seems to be an extra screw inside holding the two halves together. I've tried removing the keyboard, but it appears to be underneath the memory. Would you know how to open it in a way that it can be put back together again? :-) Thanks

Remove hard drive for hp pavilion s3220n


Pretty simple. Just dismantle the case of your desk top. most of them will split open so you can leave it standing . There will be about 6 to 8 screws holding this together and a few "snap" type connections that pull apart. Remove the base first. Once inside identify the hard drive. unplug it and remove. Probably two screws holding it in place. Reverse process for installing new one.

How to remove acer laptop bios password


You'll need to open the laptop and reset the CMOS battery.

I'd recommend doing a search for you make and model for additional details. But in brief:

1. Disconnect power adapter and remove the battery.
2. remove the screws around the hard drive compartment (bottom of laptop) and slide off the cover
3. remove the screws holding hard drive in place and slide out the hard drive
4. Disconnect or remove the small power lead that connects the battery to the mother board.
5. Reconnect and place everything back together.

How do i remove a disk drive from a toshiba satellite L25-s1195 laptop


If you are talking about the CD/dvd drive you have to take it apart which WILL void your warrenty. Usually one of the screws underneath also holds it in place otherwise it is located under keyboard. I do not recommend taking a laptop apart unless you know what you are doing. if you damage one of the many this ribbon cables it will not work when you put it back together. If you are talking about the hard disk then there is an access pannel underneath that has a picture of what looks like cd's stacked on top of eachother representing the platters that are inside a hard drive.

How to remove hard drive from acer m1201 desktop computer


The first thing to know before attempting to work on the inside of a computer is that a simple static spark (like when you rub your feet on a carpeted floor and zap your friend.... is around 30,000 volts.....believe it or not it's true and that spark can destroy your computers graphics card, sound card, memory chips, and processor)...buy a grounding cable (Radio Shack - attaches to your wrist and clips to the compute case)...or at the very least...Take your shoes and socks off and make sure you check by touching a friend or family member to make sure your'e not holding a charge.
Now you are read to open the case on your computer...There is usually a screw on the back of the computer that has to be removed and the case slides to the back or from the bottom to the top to remove it....You will need to remove the screws that hold the drive into the holder....Once removed you will need to locate the hard drive and remove the two cables attached to it...One is the power cable (the smaller one) and the other is the cable that attaches to the mother board. ....Replace the old hard drive with the new one and connect the cables....Put it all back together and turn on the computer....It should recognize the new drive and you're off and running....You will need to re-install your operating system and take it from there.

Install hard drive in hp a1310n


You need to do a number of things:

1) You need to carefully remove the door and the whole front face of the desktop (the front face opens like a door it swings open from left to right)

2) Once you have the front pannel open take a philips screwdriver and unscrew the memory card readers that is show in front of the deskop (there is one screw holding this card reader in place probably on the upper right hand corner.

3) Carefully remove the card reader by jiggiling it lightly till the unit comes off.

4) After you remove the card reader, you will immediatly see the hard drive directly behind the reader that you just removed.

5) Now look inside the desktop (because you removed the right hand side door: the big one that alows you to see inside the pc) and remove all cables from this hard drive before you read #6 below

6) Inside the desktop, Locate the hard drive, put your hand on the back of it and lift on the green plastic part along side the hard drive where you can see the harddrive screw which is on a metal track stopped by a green plastic stopper.

7) Lift the green plastic stopper and push the back of the hard drive to the front of the desktop.

8) Unscrew all screws from old hard drive and rescrew them on the new one in the exact same spots at the old hard drive.

9)Once you finish screwing on the screws, slide the new hard drive back from where the old one was

10) reconnect all data cables and power supply cable.

11) follow steps 7 thru 1 to put unit back together again. Go thru steps 7 thru one backwards

I hope this helps

Trying to open the back of a sony vaio pcg laptop


You have posted a laptop question in the desktop section. Laptop disassembly is not something you just jump into like a desktop. Laptop components are very small, and not made for assembly/disassembly. The connectors are conductive paint on ribbons, and if you remove them more than once or twice you can break the whole laptop and it won't work at all. What are you trying to do exactly. Anything more than a hard drive or memory change you should take to a technician.
