Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
I'm trying to open a Benq Joybook 8000 laptop, to replace the hard drive. There seems to be an extra screw inside holding the two halves together.
I've tried removing the keyboard, but it appears to be underneath the memory. Would you know how to open it in a way that it can be put back together again? :-) Thanks

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. I have a TravelMate 5620 which has a sticker on it saying 5625WSMi. It had 1Gb memory. I've purchased 2 x 2Gb RAM as found on internet it can handle up to 4Gb. I replaced the 1Gb RAM with one of the new 2Gb and that is great - I can see I now have 2Gb. My question is where do I slot in the other 2Gb RAM? I can't see anywhere to put this - I've opened all 4 sections underneath the laptop - one looks like an HHD, one the CPU?, the one I put the RAM in, and a smaller one that would not fi

My HP Pavilion zt1170 fails to boot 90% of the time. Once power was turned on, I could hear the fan run for one second and stopped. No video, yet the LED was on. It seems like it froze. Occasionally, it booted up successfully and it would work normally. However, it would freeze up if there's no activity for a few minutes. Any idea???
I also have a ZT 1170 and it began to do the same thing. It was a bad solder joint in the RAM slot connector in the bottom of the laptop. It would intermittently cause the laptop to hang on bootup, or to randomly lockup. \015\012This laptop has ... HP Pavilion zt1170 Notebook
