Refurbish a Computer

Look at it. Yes, just look at the computer. Look at it from every angle, and ask yourself about it. On the top: is there any damage to the case? On both sides: is there any damage to the case? Is there a fan on the left side? Is the fan broken? On the back: What ports does this computer have? Are they all on the motherboard, or are some expansions? Is there a PSU? On the front: What disk drives do I see? Is there any obvious damage to the USB ports on the front of the case (if there are any)?

Try to power it on. Find a power cord, and plug it in. Power it on, and observe. If it doesn’t power on at all, something could be wrong in the case. If it powers on and beeps, something could be wrong in the case.  lenovo x220  keyboard If it powers on and disks whine, it’s probably fine so far.

Unplug it, and open the case. Even if it had no problems in step 2, open the case. You need to do a few things in here. If it didn’t power on at all, look at the power connectors from the PSU to motherboard. If they’re connected properly, then there’s probably something wrong with the PSU or motherboard, and unless you have replacements available, this computer isn’t worth it. If not, connect them properly. lenovo thinkpad x220s keyboard Look at the disk drive connectors. Are they upside down? Is a drive’s pin setting not correct? Correct it.

Clean it. Using compressed air, dust out the case. Dust the motherboard, cards, disk drives, power supply, any fans (especially the CPU fan on the motherboard), and the case around everything.

Look for broken parts. If the CD-ROM drive does not work, remove it. If the sound card is broken, remove it. If the graphics card is broken, remove it (and get another). If the CMOS battery needs replacement, replace it.

Replace what you removed (if possible or necessary). If there were broken RAM, it’s especially important that you replace them. If the hard disk was faulty, it’s also important. However, if the 56k modem wasn’t working, you probably don’t need to worry about it, as you will probably upgrade in the next step (don’t replace anything you’ll be upgrading).

Upgrade. If things can be upgraded, upgrade them. Upgrade the computer as far as possible. Upgrade RAM, hard disk(s), if you can, upgrade from CD-ROM to DVD, and if there was a 56k modem, upgrade it to gigabit ethernet or a wi-fi card, etc. Read Build a Computer for instructions on working inside the case.

Make sure it works. Make sure all the above steps have worked. Power it on and make sure you can boot to BIOS and can configure all of the hard disks (with an exception to some computers such as the Compaq Deskpro 2000, which do not allow you to access the BIOS directly).

Install an operating system. Use a modern Operating System for better features and security.
1 GB+ of RAM (Minimum) Windows 7
512MB of RAM (Minimum) Ubuntu Linux, Windows XP, Windows Vista

Install software. Not especially important, but installing software can make it more useful to you or make it more appealing to buyers.

If you’re selling it, include some stuff. Find at least a power cord, keyboard, mouse, and maybe a monitor, and include them. Include whatever you have left from when you bought it (if you don’t need it). If you have more, try including speakers, printers, a modem, a joystick, software disks, etc.

If you’re selling it, set a reasonable price. A good computer from the mid to late 90′s could probably sell for anything between $10 and $50. Find out how much you spent on it, then add your price for labor. So, say you spent 5 hours working on this computer at $2 an hour, and spent $15 on it in all (including buying the computer, unless you are the original owner), and you want to add an extra $5. Adding them together would be $30, so sell your computer for that, but be sure it’s worth it. No one wants to buy a computer with only 16 megabytes of RAM running Windows 3.1 for $30.

If you’re not selling it, use it. The only way that all that work will be worth it is if you use it. So, sit down and play a few old games, run some older software that was rejected by Windows 7, give it to your kids, use it as a router, take it to school with you, etc.

If you can find specific information about your computer at it’s manufacturer’s website, do so. This information can tell you what is known to work, what disk drives were included with it originally, how expandable the RAM is, etc.
Don’t be afraid to try external hardware if it is compatible. If you have a printer you’d like to try, try it.
This article discusses computers in general. Specific types of computer have tasks that are for it, such as laptops. With laptops, you might also consider upgrading the battery, keyboard, repairing broken latches on the screen, including a second battery or a carrying case, etc.

Remember where you removed parts from. If possible, lenovo thinkpad x220t keyboard try taking a photograph of the inside of the computer and keep it handy so you can remember where the parts go (just in case you forget).
When you include hardware or software with your computer, make sure it works. The hardware should be compatible, and the computer should meet the minimum requirements. The software should run on that operating system, and the computer should meet the minimum requirements.
Be careful working inside the case. A static electrical discharge could fry the whole computer.
Don’t spend more money than it’s worth. If the motherboard, CPU, or PSU is dead, and you can’t buy another for just 5 bucks, the computer probably isn’t worth it. Don’t give up, there are probably many people in your area with old computers that they’d like to sell for a few bucks, or, if you’re lucky, hauled away for free.
Don’t buy parts freely. Not everything is compatible with any computer, especially an old one.

How to Swap Out Your Laptop’s Video Card

It’s common knowledge that when it comes to parts upgrades, laptops got the short end of the stick. Laptop replacement parts aren’t exactly easy to come by, after all, requiring you to go straight to your laptop’s manufacturer just to get the laptop component you need. If you can manage to get your hands on the right part for a laptop, how are you supposed to put that thing in your laptop? Hp Pavilion DV6-6000 fan It’s a simple matter to do so if you own one of those newfangled very-high-end notebooks where all it takes is a simple sliding off of a panel to reveal the GPU slot. Your laptop, though, is far from that, forcing you to contend with disassembling it piece by piece just to get to its innermost hardware. Lucky for you, while that procedure is certainly difficult, it definitely isn’t impossible. The following is a step-by-step guide to help you do just that.

Take the hinges off your laptop. These aren’t screwed on, so all you have to do is jiggle them a bit back and forth and pry them gently until they come off loosely. Make sure not to pull them out violently, as it could possibly damage these plastic parts.

Unscrew the keyboard once you should be able to see the screws connecting the keyboard panel to the laptop’s chassis, and remember to unplug its connector from the laptop.

Remove the display assembly (the whole upper half of the laptop, screen and all). Its screws will also be revealed by the removed hinges, so get to unscrewing them. After its screws are out, gently lift the display up, HP DV6-6000  Fan but by just enough for you to be able to get to its video and Wi-Fi antenna cables. Carefully unplug these cables before totally removing the display.

Remove your laptop’s optical drive by removing its screw at the bottom of the laptop. Some newer laptops have latches in place of screws; it’s all well and good if you have one of those.

Take out the upper shell of the laptop’s lower half by, yes, unscrewing it from the bottom of the laptop. Lift the shell slowly after unscrewing.

Finally, you uncover what you’re looking for: The laptop’s motherboard, if you’ll notice, every laptop component plugged into the motherboard is also screwed in place. Locate the GPU, unscrew it, and replace it with the upgraded video card.

Do the above steps, but in reverse, so you can put your laptop back together again.

Take Good Care of Your Laptop Computer

Keep liquids away from your laptop. As tempting as it might be to drink coffee, soda, water or any other liquid near your laptop, accidents can happen all too easily. Alternatively, use a cup with a cover on it, so even if it does spill, the liquid doesn’t go anywhere. Spilled liquids may damage the internal micro electronic components or cause electrical injury to the laptop. Short circuits can corrupt data or even permanently destroy some parts. The solution is very simple: Keep your drinks away from your computer. Even if you’re careful, someone else might bump into your desk or you.

Having an available antivirus software would help. toshiba satellite c855 keyboard Even if you know what you download, it may contain a virus that can lead to a circuit error or software problem in your system hardware or software. It may also slow down the system operations and performance.

Keep food away from your laptop. Don’t eat over your laptop, the crumbs can go down between the keys in the keyboard and provide an invitation to small bugs. The crumbs can also damage the circuitry. toshiba satellite c870 keyboard Worse, it makes the laptop look dirty if there are crumbs and food stains on it.

Always have clean hands when using your laptop. Clean hands make it easier to use your laptop touchpad and there will be less risk of leaving dirt and other stains on the computer. In addition, if you clean your hands before use, you will help reduce wear and tear on the coating of the laptop caused by contact with sweat and small particles that can act upon the laptop’s exterior underneath your wrists and fingers.

Protect the LCD display monitor. When you shut your laptop, make sure there are no small items, such as a pencil or small ear-phones, on the keyboard. toshiba satellite c875 keyboard These can damage the display screen when shut; the screen will scratch if the item is rough. Close the lid gently and holding from the middle. Closing the lid using only one side causes pressure on that hinge, and over time can cause it to bend and snap.

Hold and lift the computer by its base, not by its LCD asus ul30 keyboard display (the screen). If you lift it by the screen part alone, you could damage the display or the hinges attaching it to the base. The display is also easily scratched or damaged by direct pressure – avoid placing pressure on it.

Don’t pull on the power cord. Tugging your power cord out from the power socket rather than putting your hand directly on the plug in the socket and pulling can break off the plug or damage the power socket. toshiba satellite l850 keyboard Also, if you have the power point near your feet, avoid constantly bumping into the plug or you could loosen it and eventually break it.

Don’t roll your chair over the computer cord. Stick the cord onto your desk with tape or a special computer cord tie which can be easily undone when you’ve finished using the laptop. Always try to keep most of the cord asus x43 keyboard away from the floor or your legs; sometimes you can be so engrossed in what you’re doing that you move your legs and forget the cord is there.

Plug in accessory devices into their proper slots. Always look at the symbols on the laptop carefully before inserting devices. Jamming a phone line into an Ethernet port or vice versa could damage the sockets, making it impossible to use them again. It is very important to observe this step.

Handle any removable drives with care. toshiba satellite l855 keyboard Floppy drives or CD drives that have been removed from your laptop can easily get crushed, dropped or pressed if you are careless. Put them straight into a bag or a storage box/case for safe keeping if you are not putting them back into the laptop.

Insert drives into their slots carefully asus k43 keyboard and at the correct angle. Pushing the wrong drive into a socket, or at an angle, or even upside down can jam it.

Check to see if labels are affixed securely before inserting media into your laptop computer. Media such as CDs, DVDs or floppy disks should not have any loose label parts that might jam inside the laptop drive. Never insert undersized CDs, as these can damage the disk player permanently.

Don’t expose your laptop to rapid temperature changes. When bringing your laptop indoors during winter, don’t turn it on immediately. Instead, toshiba satellite l875 keyboard let it warm to room temperature first. This will avoid any potential for damage to the disk drive from condensation forming inside the machine. Avoid heat from sunlight as well.

Don’t leave your laptop in a car. Not only do the insides of cars experience large temperature swings that could damage a laptop, but a laptop (or laptop bag) is an inviting target for a smash and grab thief.

Have the unit cleaned annually to remove internal dust. asus a42 keyboard Get this done by a computer professional, or do it yourself if you can. If dust accumulates, the system cannot cool itself correctly. Heat can destroy the motherboard.

Avoid placing heavy materials, such as books, on top of your laptop and keyboard. This can push the LCD screen into the keyboard, and will eventually damage it. Also, the CD-ROM insert will also be squished and, eventually, will break.

Use a properly-sized laptop case. Whatever you use to carry your laptop around in, be it a case, a bag or something you have made yourself, asus k42 keyboard make sure that it it large enough to contain the laptop. This will avoid scratching, squeezing or even potentially dropping it.

Look into getting a laptop bag. Many breaks happen because of laptops being dropped or bumped. A bag greatly reduces the risk of damage.

Use and store in a well-ventilated area. When you are using your laptop, do so in a place that has a constant air-circulation. asus x42 keyboard Lots of people ruin their laptop by using it in an enclosed area and thus making the laptop overheat.

Use an old toothbrush to clean the area around the exhaust fan screen. If that gets plugged up, air flow is diminished and overheating can occur.

Try and keep the laptop on a flat, clean surface. asus a43 keyboard This prevents damage to the laptop. This step can be hard, particularly if you are going out with your laptop, but if there is a flat surface available to put your laptop on then do so.

Don’t use your laptop on the bed. Repeated use of the laptop on the bed will cause the fans to suck up the dust and debris which lies in the bed, ultimately blocking the fan. Refrain from this by using the laptop somewhere else than the bed.

How to Repairing Gateway NV53A24u LCD Screen

Here is your arsenal of tools. Credit Card, Small flat heat screwdriver, small phillips screwdriver, and a magnet bowl for keep track of screws (you can use the stick side of duct tape or sticky notes).

gateway-nv53a24u-001

gateway-nv53a24u-001

Behold our culprit. Do not try to keep your bumb warm with your laptop at the cold football game; You will crack it all to pieces.

gateway-nv53a24u-002

gateway-nv53a24u-002

Remove the gateway nv53a24u battery by sliding the clips to “unlocked.”

gateway-nv53a24u-003

gateway-nv53a24u-003

Remove the plastic covers that are on top of the screws you’re after.

gateway-nv53a24u-004

gateway-nv53a24u-004

These plastic covers are NOT like anything I’ve seen. You will need to carefully apply a LOT of force to get these to finally “bend” off the hole. Be careful not to scratch anything. This is the shortcut way to perform this screen replacement operation, and by far the easiest. Other tutorials will have you disassemble the entire unit. Once the plastics are off, remove the two screws (one in the bottom left, one in the bottom right).

gateway-nv53a24u-005

gateway-nv53a24u-005

As my tutorials will always instruct, keep track of your screws with a dry erase marker on your magnet bowl.

gateway-nv53a24u-006

gateway-nv53a24u-006

Slide a credit card along the edges of the bezel to lift the bezel away from the LCD.

gateway-nv53a24u-007

gateway-nv53a24u-007

Lean the screen all the way into the open position, and get your small flatheat screwdriver into the circular opening that is the hinge. Pry upwards gently until the hinge portion of the bezel comes off, allowing you to remove the bezel completely.

gateway-nv53a24u-008

gateway-nv53a24u-008

Remove the front bezel. (I’ll leave it there as long as I can throughout the rest of the tutorial to demonstrate where it used to be).

gateway-nv53a24u-009

gateway-nv53a24u-009

Remove the corner screws at the top of the LCD. These screws secure the LCD metal-brackets.

gateway-nv53a24u-010

gateway-nv53a24u-010

Because we’re not removing the top half of the computer from the bottom half, you’ll need some temporary fancy-footwork here:

Pull back on the LCD enough to the point that you can unscrew all 3 screws from the right side, as well as the 3 screws from the left side.

gateway-nv53a24u-011

gateway-nv53a24u-011

Once you have enough leverage to remove the bottom screw from the LCD bracket, you have pulled far enough. It has some give, but try not to stress it beyond this point.

gateway-nv53a24u-012

gateway-nv53a24u-012

Before lying the LCD flat on it’s face, we must disconnect the webcam cable located in the dead-center of this photo. A gentle tug will do.

gateway-nv53a24u-013

gateway-nv53a24u-013

Now that the LCD is free from the webcam, lie it down on its face. DO NOT attempt to remove it yet. The LCD ribbon cable is still connected.

gateway-nv53a24u-014

gateway-nv53a24u-014

Gently pull the tape off the LCD back.

gateway-nv53a24u-015

gateway-nv53a24u-015

Once enough tape has been removed, you’ll be able to pull backwards on the ribbon cable to release it. Nothing holds this in place but tape, so be sure to suture it back up with your new LCD using the same tape.

gateway-nv53a24u-016

gateway-nv53a24u-016

Finally, remove the webcam cable from the back of the old LCD. It’s held on by ‘spot-tape,’ where some points are sticky and others aren’t.

gateway-nv53a24u-017

gateway-nv53a24u-017

Place your new LCD face-down where your old one used to be, and go backwards through the guide from here. Only lie the new screen down if it has protective plastic on the front (as it SHOULD when it arrives). Remove the plastic LAST.

gateway-nv53a24u-018

Acer Aspire V5-571P-6407 keyboard not working

Question:

I have an Acer Aspire V5-571P-6407 laptop which i bought 5 months ago. I don’t know what happened but my keyboard and clickpad aren’t working completely. It lights up but I am unable to type anything or use the clickpad. I didn’t do anything to my laptop before it stopped working. Please let me know what I can do to fix this.

 

Answer:

I tried researching your laptop model, but the only review site I can find for it is down right now. According to e-bay, your laptop is about a year old. I’m assuming that the screen turns on and that your mouse and touchscreen still work.

In the unlikely event that your laptop keyboard has indicator lights over Numlock and Capslock, see if they turn on. If so, your keyboard is receiving power. If so, the most likely cause is that a part wore out or is clogged with debris. Try some compressed air, but that probably won’t help.

You may have to remove your acer aspire v5 keyboard and check the connectors. please try to clear the connector of the keyboard and fix it correctly, it may solve the problem.

if you can’t solve the problem, you have to replace the keyboard. We supply high quality and low price acer aspire v5 series keyboard replacement.
