look on both sides of the drawer to make sure there is no dirt or other foreign matter in the tracks where the drawer opens

P4B533 doesn't load up windows. reset BIOS,swap memory. Green lite on MB, CPU fan runs. long beep

1. check for keyboard stuck keys. 2. Clean memory and Memory slot well and fix back memory. 3. check capacitors close to the memory slot if they are not damaged, if damaged replace the capacitor with a new capacitor.

I have a zipspin c120 pro, the Lite-on ihap 122 drive is bad, will a ihap 124 by lite on work in its place?

Yes. DVD drives are intercompatable for the most part.these days. just pull out the old one, install the new one, and the OS will install the drivers and it will work just fine.

Most power supplies have a fuse in them. That is most likely the problem. Otherwise, if you open them up, you can see which capacitor has gone bad, 'cause they will have obviously ruptured.

Where i can buy lvw5005

You may have better luck buying one online. Maybe Ebay, the LVW 5005 is discontinued so you will probably not find it in any store
