Dismantling notebook. I'm trying to dismantle my x15plus to replace the fan. I've removed all the visible screws along with the monitor but there is still something holding it together which I can't see. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi bud to replace the fan you will ned to remove all the screws underneath including the three holding your keyboard, the turn over your laptop with a very small glasses screw driver remove the keyboard which is held by three clips running along the bottom inside edge of keyboard. then you will find a further two screws holding the casing. then unplug the two conectors you can see holding the casing one runs from the mouse pad the other is instrument panel now lift off casing being mindful of the pcmcia card holder then unplug fan and remove the two holding screws either side. When putting back together the keyboard connector on the motherboard pulls down and then you lift it slightly about 30 degrees which is so you can slide the connector in place then push it back into positionthe rest should be easy all my best ric

First you have to open the monitor casing
Secondly you Remove the keyboard and the rest of the device to be able to open the cover of the entire screen with caution cables WiFi

I am dismantling my chainsaw as it has lost compression and may need new rings. There is a black rubber connection behind the carburetor and I need to disconnect this to get the housing offf. How do I...

Hi, with the carby removed and the steel ring behind the carby, the rubber manifold will push back through the handle housing and then you can remove the housing. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

I'm getting a squeaking noise from my Windchaser WCUFLTI fan when it stands upright. If I lean it against the wall, the noise stops. I'm in the process of dismantling it, but can't get the back cover off....

Not sure on the squeaking. Mines squeak to on the low and medium speed, but not on high speed. As for the cover, remove the three 'visible' screws. There are two screws in the handle, but you have to remove the plugs that are hidding the screws. Use a thin flat blade screw driver to pry the plugs. Then, the screws will be visible for removal.

Once the all the screws are off from the back cover, using a flat screw driver depress the tab above the handle; then, gently '****' downwardly (assuming the fan is standing) to remove the back cover.

My tilt steering lever broke offwondering if it is possible to remove and replace it with out dismantling the column. There is a clip visible not sure if that would slide out .

Actually, there should only be about 4 screws that hold that area of the steering wheel together. It should pop off from the bottom and there you can access all of the switch mounts and etc.

My screen is black even can't do anything and can't go in to safe mode or anything to restore it

You may try to plug in an external monitor to the rear aux monitor connector on the laptop. Be sure to depress the key that switches the monitor to external while is powering up. If you get an image/picture on the external monitor it is probably the connector that has come loose from the mother board. WARNING!!! You have to take out alot of screws and sub components to get at it if you can attempt to lift the keyboard up and remove it first. You may be able to access the connector from there. If you attempt any major dismantling, video tape yourself doing it. That tape may prove invaluable when it comes to putting it back together.

Satellita A40 problem

Your heatsink is probably blocked.

Many older laptops run HOT and will shut down very quickly if there is no ventilation.

You can check this by shining a flashlight into the fan vent and checking it's visible when looking in the heatsink vent (or vice versa)

You can dismantle the laptop to get the dust out.


Or use a can of compressed air to blow through the heatsink grilles and dislodge the dust, followed by a vacuum cleaner nozzle over the fan intake to **** as much dust as possible back out of the machine.

It may take several blow/**** cycles to clear it entirely - don't be surprised to see enormous quantities of dust erupting from the fan vent when you first use the compressed air.

if you take the second option, don't dismantle the case and it's best to do this with the machine running.

Plastic vaccum cleaner nozzles carry a hefty static charge, but as long as it remains outside the case the components will remain protected and the area where the air runs through the case is entirely shielded from the rest of the machine.

If the vent isn't freely flowing air when you've tried a couple of cycles (check with a flashlight for airflow) then the machine will have to be dismantled and the dust removed manually (I've seen accumulated dust turn into 1/4 inch thick felt blocks in some laptops and have had to write off many laptops used by smokers as they had become a toxic health hazard.).

Dismantling a laptop is not a job for a novice as it is easy to damage electronic components with stray static electricity charges and plastic case components while pulling things apart It's also possible to wreck cases by overtightening or using wrong length screws when reassembling.

Cooling fan and heatsink.

use t6 star bit take it all apart add new greese to it also to cool it down
