Right Material For Plastic Part Repair??

Q: Right Material For Plastic Part Repair??

I am in serious need of the right material to repair a hairline crack in a laptop part…..just got this rare part from eBay vendor 4 as usual, 2 much money….he din see the crack. I did and must now decide between returning it or repairing it. Cause I Googled infinitely and get the polys these parts R apparently usually made of very hard to repair…..with anything conventional.

An adhesive vendor on ebay tells me this should work. I am not sure.


Has anyone had any experience with such things? This is another lappy I found in garbage way back….should have left this one, but now in FAR 2 deep re time invested over months…and money spent on parts to quit now.
Thanks much.

More Googling...I need to get this right and not waste more time/money on wut will not work. ("Measure twice, cut once." ) Just found this:

Edit 2;

Just saw this on that Canadian site:

6. Can Plastex be used on Polyethylene and Polypropylene?
While many customers have used Plastex with these materials, it was not specifically designed for that purpose

Blech. Took me long time to get to these parts R made of those...and the above from their FAQ section is vague. I hate vague.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Where can I get the inner white plastic part to fix a key on my Pavilion DV7 keyboard?

You can start here.  http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p5197.m570.l1313&_nkw=HP+dv7+key+replacement&_sacat...  If you plug in your specific model number on ebay you may get a closer match. There are a few different kinds, keep in mind it may be easier to buy a new keyboard, most are only around 15 to 20 bucks.  This guy seems to offer the best selection.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-DV7-BRONZE-COFFEE-Keyboard-Key-Replacement-Fix-/160473690639?pt=PCA_Mice_...

The warranty has ran out on my M6 laptop. A little over a year after it ran out, the left plastic hinge part of the frame began to crack and break due to the pressure caused by opening the laptop. While looking for replacement screen bezels online, I noticed that this was a common problem for this specific laptop. Is there a way around the expired warranty for this problem? I am having a hard time finding the replacement part, and I am afraid the same problem will just continue to happen again over time. Having the plastic part broken won't allow the screen to open without risking cracking the sceen. What are my options and who can I talk to? I'm a college student so this is sort of an inconvenience...My warranty ran out 9/10/2013 and it began breaking January 2015. Thanks

My HP Notebook - 15-r264dx TouchSmart (ENERGY STAR) - Will not power on. After dissasembling it, I found that the connection between the small board containing the power button and the 4 wire ribbon cable that leads back to the motherboard was broken. I tried to fix it by pressing the four wires onto their contacts, and pressing the power button then. That did not work, probably indicating that once the connection is broken, it cannot be put back. So I either need to find a fix for that, or purchase a replacement part. The part is: TMT YA-4A1  54V-0  E114139 (It would need to be both the power button chip and the ribbon cable, connected.) ps. The computer works aside from the power button malfunction, as I touched two of the contact wires in the ribbon cable together and it turned on. Also, I do not know whether it is a 64 bit or 32 bit, but I doubt that will have any weight on the solution.

A:Where can I purchase a replacement part/repair existing part...

Hi, Vendors now only sell the whole part. Please check the following list which shows all availabe parts for your machine:     http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?SearchText=L0T71UA If you only needed a small piece, you may have to buy whole part or working out part for that piece and search on eBay. Regards.

When I took my computer off my desk the other day in order to carry it to my work, I found out that the lid had cracked, just underneath the Lenovo brand name, so the front part of the lid comes off and I can see the screen between. I went into my local Lenovo ThinkCenter and asked them to repair this problem, but they said this kind of damage is not covered by the warranty. I stand by it that this is a case of material weakness and it ought to be covered. The product simply doesn't correspond to what is promised. Also, I'm afraid that the crack may have caused one of the WiFi antennas to break, besides further impacting the structural integrity of the computer. The computer had never fallen, been hit nor has any it been exposed to any kind of impact. It is also only 2 months old. Of course, this is hard to prove, but there are no other signs of damage on the exterior, which would be the case if it had indeed fallen. And this is a Thinkpad, they're supposed to be able to withstand a certain degree of impact anyway. My X200 went through some seriously rough jungle and never had any problem. The reason I had bought another Thinkpad after my X200 - despite a below-average screen resolution and an above-average price - was their superior customer support. If my issue is not dealt with properly, if it cannot be repaired for free and within a couple of working days, this will be my last ever Lenovo. These are business machines and when you pay for 3 years of internat... Read more

I recieved my new T460 laptop the last week of August and had to send it away to be repaired after only a week due to a presumably defective motherboard. It has been almost three weeks since I sent my laptop away and was told that it would be sent back to me within 5 business days. I have been told my laptop is on hold for parts, twice now. The first time, Sept 16, I recieved an email about it and when I asked the support agent, they gave me an update that the parts had arrived at around 5 in the morning but it had been on hold for a few days prior. Last week, when I haven't heard anything more about my laptop, I contacted a support agent. They told me my laptop was on hold for parts for an LCD. I'm not sure why it needs that part when it was the motherboard that would supposedly be replaced, but there was also no estimate for when that part would arrive. Since then, I've talked to another support agent who told me they would escalate my case. That was on September 21. They said a resolution officier would take over my case, but I haven't been contacted by anyone about it. I tried to talk to a support agent today and after waiting for at least 45 minutes, someone entered the chat, but abruptly left it, which confused me.   I am trying to be patient, but it is slightly frustrating waiting for my laptop to be fixed when it was brand new, and that was after waiting longer than normal to originally recieve it due to another delay of pa...

Either that or does anyone know who does MB refurbishment cheap enough to get a new power button connected onto this one? Other than this one problem its in pristine shape and I can't see spending the 400-700$ I am finding this MB part online for a simple power button being snapped off.

Wow, so I just recently got great help from Catbyte for the google re-direct virus and my computer was running great since that fix. I've been so much more careful with what I click on and for the most part have been using my Macbook to browse the internet while I either play online poker or create music on my PC. Earlier tonight I contracted the "Windows Repair" rogue virus, which looks exactly like this hxxp://2.bp.blogspot.com/-6LUmuuiKQE8/TY-v5lvqqVI/AAAAAAAAAPQ/_YWVa3FHDv8/s1600/Windows%2BRepair%2Bvirus.jpg

I searched google on my macbook for this rogue and only found results on this thing as recent as March 26th. The removal guides on them were all from 3rd party blogs so I was skeptical and didn't want to follow any of the instructions. Unfortunately I couldn't find a removal guide on it from a reputable source such as bleepingcomputer.com , probably because this rogue just came out.

What happened was I clicked on a link from google that was marked as Green by Firefox WOT. Not too long after I clicked on this link I kept getting a user account control ("Do you want the following program to make changes to your computer?") pop up for Internetexplorerupdate or something along those lines. I knew I probably contracted a virus when I kept clicking no on the user account control box and it kept popping up. When I tried to start task manager it kept popping up and wouldn't go away.

i have a windows xp home o/s on a dell dimension 8200
last week i casually deleted my video driver instead of a similarly named program which i did not want. for several days i could not see anything on my monitor. while i was out getting the startup discs from my brother in law who has the same computer (system and all) because my house ate my set, my sister was trying to "help" fix it by putting in the emergency boot and repair disks i made for a different computer... a dell 4300 with ME o/s... and when i got back... well, lets just say i was unhappy.

the computer refused to acknowledge that i had a hard drive so i popped in the o/s cd from dell and added another partition so now i can see and use my computer.

now, is there any way i can get my other information back? when i open computer management, and click on disk management i see two partitions on Disk 0 :

( )
37.27 GB FAT
Healthy (EISA Configuration)

(C: )
37.25 GB NTFS
Healthy (System)

if i make the ( ) the active partition it goes back to being unable to load (but still there)

any thoughts on this situation (besides what i can do to my sister) would be very much appreciated.

A:cannot access part of my harddrive (the part with all my files)

try Partition magic or Disk magic. You may be able to re-activate your partition with those. Otherwise you'll need a program to recover your files. I just used File Scavanger ($40) to recover files from a hard drive that got trashed from a major system failure. I regained 80% of my files, fortunately about 95% of my most important ones. Most of the other programs are $90 & up. Good luck and make your sister pay for these programs

When I restarted it, my computer couldn't find any wireless connection (although my phone or my friend's laptop could).

Even when i'm searching the word Wi-Fi in the Start menu my system can't find anything.Just to mention I don't have an Internet cable cause the only internet connection I have is the wirless modem in my apartment (this message is written from my work).Is there an option maybe, that you will send me link to download a file or something that would give me the optioon to install a new adapter or something? the only option i can think of is to download something like that to my friend's laptop and than to transfer it to my computer with a cable or a usb stick (don't have this stuff but guess i will have to but it thanks to HP great updates and the great pavillion 15!!)plz help me, im abroad  and i really need conenction to internet, and this computer is geeting on my nerves.sorry for my bad english.thank you.

Good day everyone,

I am trying to find what are the materials used in making the components of a membrane switch keyboard ( specifically a genius series KB110 keyboard).

I have looked it up myself, however, what I found is a broad answer of plastic, instead of the specific material.

The key matrix and the PCB materials are my main points of interest, I would like your help on the matter.

Sorry if this is not the place for this type of topic.

All the best

I was wondering if anyone has any good websites with good articles on pretty much anything computer/networking related. I am interested in learning more about general programming and office networking setups and troubleshooting.


A:Good Reference Material

Well, this site is the best place to start at There are some ...For Dummies books that could be helpful. Wikipedia is another one. Most of the information is correct.

I guess it will depend on what you want to do.

Cogeco sent me an email saying that i am using a large amount of bandwidth quickly and that I may have a virus on my computer. I didnt really do anything to use up my bandwidth. i hardly downloaded anything and mostly i just watch streaming video. So I wasnt worried. a couple days later cogeco sent me another email saying the same thing. Then I got worried. So i did an online Panda active scan and so far it says that I have over 230 infected files. I am worried about the safety of my computer now. My Nortan 360 cant pick up anything but i have the feeling that my computer is getting a little slow. I would appreciate it if anyone can help me diagnose my computer and clean it up from all the problems. I will try to submit the results of the panda antivirus online scan. Please HELP!

A:harmful material may be on computer

Panda active scan is pretty good. I rely on it for a second opinion and do a monthly scan with it.

Dear Tech Guy(s):

I am running an HP Pavillion 6630, with WIN 98, Celeron Processor 500MHZ. CD-ROM 40X, CD-Burner HP8250I

I have been accessing a reference CD-ROM, which I own, that contains time sensitive technical data. Recently I have been LOCKED OUT, from accessing the data, and I would like to continue using it. I get a window telling me "The CD-ROM is dated May 2001 and you need to install an updated version."(Which I Don't Have)

I have tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling, the software, but this hasn't helped. I was also able to edit a couple of notepad files, on board the CD, entitled "Version" and "Volume", but that still didn't allow me access.

My Questions:
How can I continue to access this information? What files on board a CD of this nature, are usually responsible for allowing a computer, to identify its date? (The CD"s Date)

Any suggestions, or information on which files I need to access and edit will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hello Lenovo Community, I recently purchased a ThinkPad P40 Yoga, and plan to repaste it to eliminate thermal throttling.  I was planning on using Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut, which cannot work with aluminum heatsinks due to the fact that the gallium in the liquid metal will react with the aluminum and damage the heatsink.  Opening my P40 Yoga, the heatsink seems to be a mix of copper and aluminum.  The baseplate seems to be copper on the top layer (scratching the top-layer off reveals an aluminum-colored material), and the fins seem to be aluminum.  Would anybody be able to inform me as to the acutal materials used in the heatsink and where?  More specifically, I need to know the baseplate's material so I can judge whether or not it is safe to apply the Conductanout. Thanks very much to anyone who can lead me in the right direction!Chris

Hi, I have been searching around for this material for ages.
-It has a reflective look to it but when observed closley is see-through.
-I has a liney texture to it(Like on 3D cards and posters).
-If looked through causes a distortion and causes a rainbow effect.
-It can be both Thin or thick.

I found a youtube video "" Start watching at 5 minutes in and he talks about it. He however dosn't give a name (which is what I am needing). When he looks through it with the camera it dosn't cause the true effect, only your eyes can pick up the hallusinogenic effect. Please help me solve this problem I have struggled so much to find.

Back again for your help. Today I tried to print out copies of some forms but when the print screen came up it was dark gray, not the usual white, and I could not check any of the needed copies, etc. The only thing different was that the forms required Acrobat Reader, whereas other copies I made did not require the Reader. Is this something usual when using Reader? If so, is there someway I can print copies when needed? My thanks, to you as usual.

I'm taking a course which needs Angular2, and the website is not possible to reach. I have a ZTE F668 ONT router, DIGI Hungary network provider. The router is able to ping the website with built in tool. Android devices on the local WiFi network can open the website. Windows devices cannot. Which are my PC with Windows 10 and a Samsung Series 9 on WiFi.

DNS servers are already set to google.com. NSLOOKUP returns the correct IP address. I can ping that IP address. The domain resolve does not work, and I have to use a webproxy to see the site. There are no known restrictions on my internet access, except that I don't have an IPv6 WAN address.

I have tried flushing DNS cache and other basic "quick fixes", they don't work. Hosts is empty. Windows firewall is empty, plus it doesn't work on other PC either. Antivirus is ESET NOD32, without firewall.

Hope you can help!

SpyBot S&D 1.3 http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their

they say.

In SpywareBlaster - Always enable all protection after updates
In SpyBot - After an update run immunize

Do these and reboot before the next step.

Then get HiJack This http://thespykiller.co.uk/files/hijackthis_sfx.exe
And let it extract to its default folder , run it , DO NOT fix anything, post the
log here.
All are free, but it will take some time as there is some manual work to do!!!!!!

I accidentally touched the blue thermal stuff on the center with my thumb as the clamp went down. I only touched the dead center, so only a real little bit was touched... but should I go get some of that alluminum stuff to put on or should it be ok? I want to get this put together now and nobody that I know of sells it in town, so I may need to order it online.
