    I have the exact same issue. This is the second time my AC adapter connection came loose. Sent it back to HP the first time which took several weeks and a couple hundred dollars! I know I can fix it if I can just get it open.
    I’ve already removed all visible screws and hard drive. The case starts to separate but something is still holding it. What’s the trick?

I have an HP Touchsmart IQ775 Desktop PC. Over the past couple of weeks, I've been having issues with my PC when I turn it on in the morning or when I have to restart it during the day. I turn on the...

I agree with jgroves705.

Bad Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

Enough power to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but not enough to turn the Processor on, or keep it on.

1) ALL of the LED lights on at once, would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) The fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) The AMD Turion 64 X2, model TL-58 (1.9GHz) processor, can use up to 58 Watts of power.

{The Processor socket is a Socket S1, }

It also bears measure, because you have to constantly reboot the TouchSmart to get it to come on.

HP wants you to send it in because;

A) The TouchSmart line of desktop computers, are built like a laptop.

You have to use skill to disassemble it, in order to replace the Power Supply, or you can break stuff.
(Pretty technical, huh?)

Getting to the Power Supply is No piece of cake.

2) It costs more ($$$$)

Not an advertisement for the website, or the seller.
Just to give you an idea of what the Power Supply looks like,

Here's what the motherboard looks like,

If you believe you have the skills to open the HP TouchSmart IQ770, and replace the Power Supply, or just want to try it anyway, post in a Comment, and I'll do my best to lead you through it.

Can I get parts to replace broken hinge? I have an HP Officejet 6210 All in One.

In the mean time, I kept my unit working by just removing the broken top half of the hinge.
You have to remove 5 screws using a TORX T10 screwdriver. First remove the small plate covering the back of hinge on the outside. Then remove the two vertical screws at the top of the hinge up under the hinge lip. Then open the cover (be careful to hold it in place so as not to damage the three flex connections between the lid and body) and remove the other two screws at the top of the hinge. Remove the broken top half of the hinge and lower the cover back down. Until you find a replacement hinge, you can put a piece of heavy duty tape on the back where the hinge was.

I need to replace the power supply plug in my hp ze2000 laptop, i have all of the screws out of the bottom of the computer but can not get the case to open. How do I do so?

First of all remove all your components ie. RAM, hard drive, battery, CD/DVD drive etc. Sometimes there are screws located in the area where these components are located that secures the top and bottom halves of the case.
I suggest that as you remove the screws from the bottom of the case you take a note where the came from as some of the screws are different lengths.
There may be s strip panel between the top of the keyboard and the LCD screen, remove this first, it will be clipped in place and held with screws from the bottom of the laptop.
Next the keyboard should removed and keyboard cable.
Look closely for screws hidden behind plastic stick on covers, you need to use a sharp thin blade to lift off these covers to reveal the screws behind the covers.
The top and bottom halves of the case is usually held in place with plactic clips, start at an opening and carefully pull apart until a clip releases and the work along that edge to release more clips. Continue along each edge until you separate the case.
The LCD screen is usually secured with screws on the back edge of the laptop and possible with screws near the edge of the motherboard. Take care to disconnect the video connector.
The motherboard needs to be removed from the bottom half of the case so you can access the power connector.
Take careful note where you remove each screw as you need to put them back in reverse order.

Best of luck, have fun.

My hp pavilion ze2000 take ages to start up


If your laptop won't start then remove the battery from the back and just connect your Laptop with the power cord and press hold then power button for 1min.This will help you fix the issue.Incase your laptop turns on but takes lots of time to show the desktop screen then you will have to repair the windows with the recovery disc given with your laptop.

HP pavillion ze2000 laptop has a broken power

I did this to a laptop many times. And after soldering the problem came back after few months. This is a major problem with laptops. What I finally did is jum short wires inside to bypass the part of the board that caused the problem, and never had to open it again. Opening a laptop is not easy with so many screw, and I hate opening it every few months.

Alt key does not work

You can try to repair it, but its easier (and cheaper) to just buy a replacement keyboard on eBay. (or other online seller) Replacing is simple. Turn off the machine, remove the battery. There are 2 screws with pictures of a keyboard next to them. Remove those. Open the machine back up and remove the piece above the keyboard (start at the right side and gently pull up, it will release the clips) Then there are 4 screws in the top of the keyboard and a ribbon cable to unplug underneath the keyboard.
Good Luck James PC Tech
