There are 6 screws in total. One is hidden behind the label on the back in the centre. Also one is in the middle of the battery compartment. Once all six are removed one will most likely find that one or more of the gear(s) is broken.

Stripped bicycle pedal

Better replace the pedal and most probably the crank arm as well. Sometimes a new pedal can cut the threads true again on the crank arm but the crank arm may need replacement too, depending on the damage. Remember to fit the correct side pedal. The pedal threads differ between left and right and pedals are usually marked "L" or "R".

You need a crank extractor to pry the crank apart. Careful when threading the tool as the valleys and journals of the threads are prone to cross threading, thus stripping the tool.

You'll need to take the laptop apart.

Ok, on a laptop you need to get some cups and label them to put the screws in so you will know where they came from. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery then start removing all the screws from the bottom of the laptop. Then remove all the devices from the bottom of the laptop such as the hard drive, the memory, dvd/cd drive, wireless card, etc. Take note of how the wires are on the wireless card, those are the antennas.

Look inside the battery case, hard drive case, memory case and dvd drive slot for screw. Some screws on the bottom case in inside of some of the device cases might have the icon of a keyboard next to it. Those screws hold the keyboard in place.

Turn the laptop over, remove the strip that is just above the keyboard but be careful because a cable might be attached to it. Then remove the screws that hold the keyboard in place that are under where the strip was and gently lift the keyboard out because there is definitely a cable under it.

Next you can remove the screws from the lcd hinges at the corners and lift the lcd screen off, also note that you will have to pull the antennas cable and the lcd cable when you remove the lcd.

Next start removing any screws that hold the palmrest in place. Take note of any cables that are attached to the palmrest and remove them then lift the palmrest off.

Next start removing any screws you see that hold the motherboard to the bottom case, then lift the motherboard out an start replacing the fan.

Instructions to remove keyboard from compaq laptop

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery. Close the LCD Lid then turn the laptop over. Look inside the battery case to see if there are any screws in there, if so remove them. Sometimes the keyboard might have screws inside the battery case too. If that's the case normally you will see the keyboard icon next to the screw. The purpose of removing screws in the battery case is there might be some that hold the strip that is above the keyboard in place.

You can look at the rest of the screws on the bottom of the laptop to see if you see any that might have the keyboard icon next to it. if so remove that screw. Also sometimes there might be a screw that holds the keyboard inside the memory slot or any of the other slots so just look for them. If you'd like you could just remove all the screws from the bottom of the laptop.

Turn the laptop back over after the screws are removed, then take a small flat head screwdriver and pry the strip that is above the keyboard aloose. Normally this strip has the power button on it. Be careful removing this strip because there will probably be a cable attached underneath it.

Once the strip is removed there might be screws that hold the keyboard in place a the top of the keyboard, if so remove them. Now you can just lift the keyboard out but be careful because there is a keyboard cable underneath the keyboard that has to be removed. If the keyboard does not just come out then more than likely there are little catches that help hold it in place either at the top or on the sides, just work with one side to pry it from the catches then you will be able to get the keyboard out.

How to take apart hp ze5570us to see what is wrong with the plug socket for the charger? I have taken all screws out but the computer does not seem to be coming apart easily.

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.

Lens jammed

The lens needs to be removed.  The camera case can be taken apart by using a small philips screw driver and a small flat head. Take the batteries out. Have a nice flat space to lay the screws out.  Pry out the little chrome piece with the UL sticker on it. (Carefully use the flat head). Start somewhere you will remember and begin to remove the screws going clockwise around the camera.  There is a screw under the rubber flap of the "3X" chrome cover.  The top of that must be pryed out and lifted up to remove. Take the back cover off. Lift out the top of the LCD screen and remove the 4 screws that hold it in. Start a new row of removed screws. The LCD ribbon can be removed by popping the white plastic clasp up. Next remove the menu pad ribbon from the board by lightly tugging on it. You should be able to remove the front cover by lifting it up to unhook it from the top power button strip. There are 2 screws that hold the top power strip in place. There is also a plastic hook on the front side. There are 6 screws holdong the board to the frame. A different size screw is located underneath the power strip ribbon. Loosen the 2 screws holding the flash.  THe white ribbon will be the flash ribbon and the gold one next to it will be the lens ribbon. NOTICE the lens ribbon must pass under the flash.  The side with the lens will have a small board that pushes into the main board.  To seperate it, gently pry it apart with a small flathead. There is a hidden screw for the board at the top where the end of the battery compartment. It needs to be removed before the board will come out. Once the board is out, there are three screws holding the lens in the case (they are black screws, not the chrome ones)  Once they are removed, the lense will fall out. There are 3 black screws holding the largest motor on the lens.  They are above the text "Sony Lens" remove those and the gears of the lense will be able to move freely. Twist the base to get the lense unstuck.
