My USB ports in front are bad (loose) and I want to replace them. How do remove the cover in front to get to them? It looks like I could almost pull the cover off, but don't want to break anything. thanks.

1. Remove front cover by sliding front panel down.
2. Install 4 new AAA (LR03) batteries (sold separately) and replace cover.
3. Turn unit on by sliding ON/OFF switch towards USB port. LED will
4. Plug USB charging cable (sold separately) into the Emergency Power Pack's USB port.
5. Plug the other end into your mobile device. (Make sure you do this last, as a few devices will not recognize the charge otherwise). Your device is now being charged
You must replace the timing chain and the tensioner assembly as well as any other parts that you find worn such as sprockets and guides. All this requires special tools and the timing cover to be removed.
I removed one on a Gateway ZX4800-02. Remove two screws by the usb ports on the back. then remove the plastic piece covering the usb ports on the back. This will expose the HDD. Now to make it easier. remove the four screws holding the support bracket and remove support bracket. remove the three screws holding the HDD located up, right, and left. Now disconnect the HDD cable by pull it to the right by the connector. DO NOT PULL THE CABLES. My friend does that by habit all the time and it drives me crazy.
HDD should come out easy. Just remove the metal cage covering the HDD and Replace. Reverse order for reassembly.
Now does anyone know how to get off the damn front bezel!>!!?!?!?!? I can't figure it out.
Gateway is notorious for putting hidden clips towards the front face of the computer. Look for plastic push tabs along the inside of the front of the computer. If you locate them, pull/squeeze them to the insides of the case and push forward. The front cover should come off.
When you open the front cover it is possible for the transfer roller assembly to remain latched against the imaging drum assembly, making it impossible to pull out the imaging drum. The drum should lift out very easily. If it doesn't, try closing the imaging drum cover and then the front cover (ie: put everything back the way it was). Then open the front cover again, pressing firmly on the front cover latch. When open, check that the transfer roller assembly stayed with the front cover and swung out of the way of the imaging drum (you may have to swing it yourself. When the front cover has opened properly, the imaging drum's cover will unlatch easily and the drum can be pulled out.
I hope this helps someone! I had to say many bad words before I figured this out. Good thing I had a second 5100cn handy to look at for comparison. - B.Till
Can you take the side panel off the pc, the one on the left when pc is viewed from the front.Look for the usb header where the front panel cables from the usb ports plug into. See if the plug is on, loose, try pulling it off to refit and check, come back to me and let me know if you need more help.
most usb ports are either on the back of the computer or to the side. Other models have additional usb ports on the front of the computer where you pull down or up a cover to gain access. You are talking about a usb port right?
In some Motion LE1600 tablet pcs, the AC adapter port becomes separated from the motherboard. It will charge in the convertible keyboard or docking station because the power comes from the USB connection (for the kb) or the dock connector (for the FlexDock). Motion used to fix this by repairing the solder joint but now they just replace the motherboard (very expensive). There are ways to solder this but the repair doesn't always last unless you have someone really good do it.
ok here is your solution on ALL of these external mybooks by Western
Digital... If you are getting a usb device not recognised, and can't get to
your disk in any other way thru my computer, device manager, drive manager, ect.. what has happened is it's generic power and
usb card that is connected to the hard drive inside it's plastic box
has gone out. These western digital essential edition drives which look
sealed actually have some tabs on the shiny plastic case about 1 inch
in from the front on the bottom. Just put the tip of a streight
screwdriver into the cooling slots. Gently pull up and back on the
screwdriver bending the slotted area by the outer **** shaped cover 1
inch from the rounded front. Pull up and towards the back. Once you
have both sides of the bottom front released, then try to gently pry
the bottom center up above the side of the ****. Because there are 4
tabs (2 on each side) that extend down from the main housing with the
cooler holes that just rest in a track that is in the inside of the
outer shiny **** shell. Then repeat for the top of the drive unit.
After a little work you can remove it sliding it all out of the back.
Once the outer shell is off, you can pull the drive out with the SATA
to power and USB card connected to the drive. There is a metal housing
over this card. Remove the 2 screws on the top of the metal housing of
the usb&power. Once removed the bad card can be slid down of the
drive. You can then just plug the drive in in any SATA port with SATA
power inside your computer. Or just buy an external drive housing from
tigerdirect or newegg for $20 which will make any sata drive to an USB
External. What can I say, Western Digital has crappy cards. I only
found this out by my having 2 My Books. 1 worked, and one fowled.. So I
took them both apart. Better than loosing my data seeing how they were
my backup drives...
