Hi this is not an easy job and the work would need a step by step live chat to do, I dont know if you could get a tech such as myself to live chat for about two and a half hours. My best solution for you is that you look on Ebay in the computer section, there is often advertised computer ebooks, some especialy for laptops. I do not know how good these books are but it may be a way for you to solve the problem you have. Just make sure that as you dismantle you laptop you write down where every piece and every screw goes or you will end up with a lot of leftovers. Regards mistyman

I have dell 1420, the cd/dvd room wont open. also it didnt flash the yellow light. i tried to open it with pin, it worked but when i put the dvd it didnt detect the dvd.


Hello.

Your CD/DVD drive is probably faulty and needs to be replaced.

But, try a CD/DVD cleaner to see if it can be salvaged.

Hope this helps.

HELP PLEASE WHEN I TURN MY LAP TOP ON I GET A FLASHING MESSSAGE THAT SAYSMEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK CABLE


Media test failure Check Cable or error PXE-E61: Media test failure usually means the hard diskhas failed or the hard disk needs re-seating or the disk controller is faulty. First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If this does not work then reboot and go to theBIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn'tdetect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Next - to determine if thehard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an external hard drive and you cannot open the various folders and files,this confirms the hard drive is faulty. The hard drive needs to bereplaces in the laptop and Windows installed and the laptop's device driversand your programs etc to get a functioning laptop again.

Bios password recovery....


If it's a "desktop" computer (not a "laptop") computer, open the case, and look for three gold pins in a row, with a jumper between pins #1 and #2.
With the computer turned off, move the jumper to connect pins #2 and #3. After a few seconds, return the jumper to its original position.
You have now "cleared" all the BIOS settings, including removing the BIOS password.

Compaq evo n1020v not able to boot, no displal.


You have a sick laptop, could be simply a faulty power adapter to a faulty motherboard. The Evo is old and probably not worth fixing, better to put your money towards a new laptop.
There is a way to retrieve data from your hard drive provided it is not faulty.
Remove the hard drive from the laptop and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Insert the adapter into a working computer's USB port and the computer will see this as an external hard drive. You can then open the folders and view your files. Copy the various folders and files you require to a USB memory stick and/or burn these to a CD etc.
It pays to backup your data regurarly because if the hard disk fails and this can happen unexpectedly, you will lose your data.
If the hard drive is faulty, there are companies that can retrieve data from faulty hard drivers, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

My Toshiba Satellite A30 laptop keeps switching off when charging. It works fine when on the battery but seems to overheat when I use it whilst charging the battery. Can you help ?


I would suggest that you try it with another AC adapter first, because it seems the adapter is faulty and therefore supplying more current into the laptop than necessary.
If it works perfectly with another AC Adapter, then you might just have to change your AC Adapter.
Hope it helps.
Goodluck!

I AM TRYING TO INSTALL A NEW HARD DRIVE INTO MY TOSHIBA SATELLITE A75-S206 IS THERE A URL YOU KNOW OF WITH INSTRUCTIONS?


Various laptop mount hard drives differently.
Some are mounted on the bottom of the laptop behind a screwed panel and may be mounted in a cage and may have adapter that fit on the hard drive connector pins.
Other hard drives are fitted on the edges of the LH side or RH side of the laptop behing a plastic panel and this panel is held in place by a screw. Again the hard drive may be mounted in a cage and may have an adapter connector on the hard drive connector pins.
If you are not sure goto the Toshiba WEB site to download the user manual or service manual for your model laptop.

Laptop wont turn on at all/ satellite A215-S7422 pc notebook


If you are trying to retrieve the DVD from inside a laptop that won't turn on, the easiest solution is ... a Paper Clip! Straighten one end of the paper clip and insert it into the small hole on the face of the DVD drive and the door will open.
