U300s replacement parts

Q: U300s replacement parts

Hi all, I know am taking you guys back a bit but needs must. Got the u300s orange, trying to restore the thing. Boots up and runs pretty well but the owner tried to open it, ended messing the bottom chassis cover. All the plastic hook types broke off. Anyways looking to see if I can find replacement parts. Maybe lenovo got some forgotren about stock kicking about somewhere in a warehouse or maybe somebody's got a dead one just collecting dust, and willing to make a buck or 2 please let me know and we can discuss the logistics. Cheers

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My PC has been fine for 2 and a half years now, I've never had a part overheat or stop working, but I still don't have any replacement parts. So I'm not looking for duplicates (especially since my motherboard is now out of stock and/ or prohibitively expensive), but upgraded parts still compatible with my current gpu and RAM, primarily a motherboard, as these seem to be the parts I've heard of shorting out the most. I don't need SLI or RAID, I just need something reliable that isn't huge and expensive. Hopefully if one piece has a problem it doesn't short out any others.

I think the rest of the parts are fine.
 

A:Replacement parts

It's going to be hard to recommend anything without knowing what you currently have. Having an extra power supply on hand would be a good idea. I've only lost one motherboard in the last 15 years so mine tend to last until they're replaced.

Hello, I would like to know if there is a possibility to get spare parts, namely a cpu cooler (or fan) and a keyboard (azerty) for the HP Pavilion DV7 2020eb laptop. Now, this isn't one of the most recent laptops but it functions for browsing and watching movies which is all we need it for so i wouldn't like to spend too much on these parts. Does HP offer this kind of support? Thanks in advance!

Hi Folks,  I was a bit of dumbass over the summer and spilled a small amount of whiskey on my system and killed the keyboard; Not a huge deal as I usually leave the system hooked up to my tv and use a remote keyboard, and when I use it mobile, I can use the onscreen keyboard, although this last is a bit of a pain..  I've tried contacting encompass but they don't seem to sell replacement keyboards; does anyone happen to know where else actually sells replacement keyboards. Biggest problem seems to be that it's a standard Canadian/Bilingual keyboard. I'm able to find US keyboard replacements, but the layout is different so won't fit with the current top plate, and I'd much rather avoid have to replace the whole thing (20$ keyboard vs something like $160 for keyboard and top plate....)  Any help would be appreciated, but if I cant actually find something that should be a relatively easy part to replace, this will be my last Lenovo item unfortunately.Steph S.

I just upgraded my old Intel duo core 2.8GHz, ASUS mb, and ocz memory to an Intel 2500k, MSI mb, and G skill 8gb memory, and starting up it freezes after the bar goes across twice every time. Trying to boot in safe mode gets me a list of loaded drivers and then it just freezes, i've let it sit for 10 minutes waiting (supposed to take 30 seconds i hear) but nothing. I thought the memory might not be compatible with the board (which i forgot to check out before hand), and i found the specific model # doesnt appear on MSI's website, but there are identical part numbers except for the last two letters which are XL. I just thought about taking one of them out and trying to start up with just one but its to late for that. Anyone think that will work or have any other ideas? Oh and i am upgrading to windows 7 so i put the install disk in to try it as well and it froze on the loading screen as soon as the first red dot appeared. I also ran the memory test on the MSI boot menu and returned no errors, and i ran the memory test from the windows 7 boot disk but found no errors.

Hello there!
(I'm new to this forum, so I apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong place.)

With the holidays coming up and Cyber Monday coming within a few days, I was hoping to get some help figuring out which parts on my computer to upgrade for a new gaming tower that I purchased recently. After I purchased the tower, I realized upon receiving it that some of my current parts would not be compatible with it. I haven't been able to use it since I got it in the mail and I thought now would be a good time to look into getting new parts that are compatible with it, mainly a new motherboard and (if necessary) processor. I'm not totally new to the experience of installing new computer components, but I do have a difficult time finding the right parts that will work with all my existing parts for a good and affordable price.

Anyway, the tower I purchased recently is the Phantom 410 by NZXT (https://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/95-phantom-410-mid-tower-case.html)

Here are the tech specs for the tower (which are also available on the link I posted earlier):

A:Scanner motherboard and replacement parts.

You'd probably be better off buying a new (used) scanner (you'd probably have to get parts from HP - if there's nothing on ebay). Thats a pretty expensive scanner to be taking parts from. You might want to find a cheaper one off of ebay to take apart (im not sure what all you're doing with them, so it may or may not work).

But if anyone knows for sure, that would be great.

Hi Widget,

To be honest I doubt that somebody here can tell you the part number from this cable. It?s only an user to user forum where you can talk with normal people like you and me.

In my opinion you should contact nearest authorized service provider in your country. On the Toshiba website you can find a list of them:

Hello good fellas! I hope you will be able to help me out with my problem, because it drives me crazy!

The PC is mainly used by my parents (YouTube, Facebook, movies, etc.). The configuration was pretty slow (nothing was changed for 6 years or so), but was just fine for them. MSI motherboard with Intel? Pentium? Processor E2160 and 2GB of DDR2 RAM. Unfortunately, the motherboard has died (I guess so). So I thought it's time to build a quite-modern PC for them. I have left good parts (Samsung hard drive and Corsair power supply).

The "refreshed" PC configuartion is as follow ("+" indicates brand new part):
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H (+)
CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 (+)
CPU cooling: provided with CPU (+)
Memory: GoodRam 2 x 4GB DDR3-1600 Dual Channel CL9 (+)

Power Supply: Corsair VX450W
Hard Drive: Samsung HD501LJ

and last:
Thermal paste: Arctic MX-2 1g (+)

After assembly, I have installed necessary drivers from the DVD (witch came with motherboard) and everything seemed to be OK. Unfortunately, after leaving PC for some time on idle, I got blue screen with error code 124. I had completly no idea, what could cause this problem. First thought was low CPU Vcore, which may be getting to low for stable work. CPUID HWMonitor (screenshot below) confirmed very low CPU Vcore values.

Welcome to SevenFourums,

So i have had a look at the Intel report:


Code:
CPU Frequency Test Passed with Warning!!!

The processor frequency could be affected by power management features. In order
to ensure the processor frequency is not affected by a power management setting,
enter BIOS, load defaults, and disable any 'Over-Clocking' or power
management features that may affect processor frequency. Also, set any
software applications which control power management features to default.
Prime 95 will stress your CPU more then The Intel test would 85 - 90 deg is far too high!

The Highest Temperature you CPU is able to reach without causing damage is: 72.72?CARK | Intel? Core? i5-4460 Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.40 GHz)Lets try some troubleshooting: Can you Boot into the BIOS and set everything as default.
Can you look at RealTempGT and take a reading of the Temperature and post it on here Please

Unfortunately, some of the cheap Chinese made parts used in Lenovo laptops of late are of such low quality that they fail quite often, so even Lenovo cannot keep up with demand, and with the Thinkpad 460, its noisy defective fan issue is well known, so it will proably take some time to get it fixed.

However, I can afford to get a higher pixel count as long as I can resize things to make it readable on the screen.

So I spilled coffee on my laptop, over the keyboard. I turned it off immediately, took out the power, but stupidly left the battery in. I wiped it dry, left it a couple of hours, then tried turning it on. It started for a second then turned off again. Yes I now realise what a idiot I am for doing this.

So I opened it up, cleared out all the excess coffee. I had only spilled the coffee on the left hand side of the keyboard, and directly underneath this area is the the fan which didn't seem to have any residue on it, and the power board assembly. The motherboard was on the otherside of the laptop and free from harm.

So having cleaned it out as much as possible and let it dry out for days, I try turning it on and it won't even start up. I'm thinking that I may have messed up by turning it on after only a few hours, and with pic related being directly underneath and probably covered in coffee, it short circuited and ruined it.

My question is does this mean the entire motherboard and electrical components of the laptop are defective? Bearing in mind no coffee was spilled on the motherboard. Or might it mean only this particular component, the power board/switch assembly which connects the power button to the motherboard, is broken? Will replacing this part alone be enough to salvage my laptop?
 

A:Spilled coffee on laptop, question about replacement parts

1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy
2. As you say - easy to do but a rather expensive cup of coffee
3. Such a problem is I am sorry to say impossible to solve - in an online situation - the only advise that I can offer is
If you are not technically knowledgeable enough to dismantle the laptop and check circuits with a meter - not of course with power connected - then it is a lost cause until you evaluate the cost effectiveness of paying for a computer repair business to evaluate it.
Coffee - water is of course a conductor and will effectively short live to earth - anything could have gone.
SORRY but a real and effective analysis will require professional test equipment and IMHO depending on local rates - you are talking about something in the order of 30 just to tell you it is a lost cause.
Unless it is a valuable - newish laptop I would think your best is to take out the HDD and see if that is a run connected to another computer in an enclosure or docking station

Hi,

I was recently the victim of a power surge that fried my multi-adapter plug.

When I tried to boot my system lter and the LEDs in the case flashed for a second, and went dead. I then stripped the whole computer (even taking apart the PSU). Once I put everything together again, the system booted fine again. There was no indication that the system sustained damage and everything functioned as usual.

Later while playing BF4 I noticed that There was some type of lag, where the graphics would momentarily hang en then "rubberband" back...hardy noticeable. I contributed this to internet lag. Then I noticed that this also happened in offline games, however not always. I then made peace with the idea that some components might have taken damage from the power surge and ordered a new mobo, chip and ram.
The only parts I did not change out was the HDDs and the PSU and the GPU.

Granted the I upgraded from an old phenom II 955 the NEW MSI Z87-G43 GAMING LGA 1150 Intel mobo required both the 4Pin "CPU" connectors from the power supply. That being the only notable difference between old and new configurations, I assembled the new components and tried to boot the PC.

As soon as I hit the power button, the mobo LEDs, the Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 8GB LED's and Corsair 800 GS lights up and the system fans spin to life, however there is no image on the screen. Nothing.

I've had this machine about about a week, so far I really like it.  Can't say yet that I love it yet, but it does what I need it to and the price is better than a tablet with the same functions and already has a keyboard.  This machine is kept in a padded case when not used in my desk drawer it does not bounce around in my briefcase etc.  
This morning the left button on the touch pad does not work.  At first glance it sort of looks like it is caught on something or stuck, the right button works great a broken switch under the button is also possible but this thing doesn't move at all I'd think a switch would still move just not contact properly inside.  I need my machine and I've made a couple of upgrades like a SSD for the stock hard drive and a 8 gig ram chip, I am not thrilled about pulling those components in order to return for warranty replacement etc. as I'm pretty sure you won't be returning the same machine I sent in.  I'm considering pulling it apart to see if it is indeed stuck so it can be pushed back out from the inside but if this is a common issue with this machine I'd like to know that...  
Can I be sent a new touch pad component, I believe I saw this is a separate board that attaches to the motherboard with a ribbon cable?  I'm not afraid of this procedure myself as I've been building desktops since the 90's and this is a really simple hardware to work on from the looks o...

A:New week old Inspiron 11 3000 3558 (touch) stuck or broken button on touch pad--warranty parts replacement?

This is an fyi about the final resolution of this issue.  After a lot of arguing dell sent me what was supposed to be the touchpad but what I got was only the plastic palmrest no touchpad. Then because it's a "daughter card" I got more argument about the touchpad.  I got hot enough that I opened up the back, lifted out the battery, took out the two funky looking screws and the whole pad just fell right out of the machine.  The buttons seemed fine so I screwed it back down, put the battery back in and closed it up.  It's now great, the button was indeed hung up on the edge of the plastic palmrest.  This is a very well designed inside machine, it all screws down and all connections are with plugs or ribbon cables.  I wrote back to dell and told them they need to fire their tech manual writers because they're idiots, a monkey could have done this.  Apparently it is not easy to find only the mouse pad it's generally sold with the palmrest from what I can tell.  This whole machine is so well designed I scratch my head why the cpu isn't socketed unless they decided there was no room for a socket etc, which I can see that argument.  So if your mouse pad quits try popping it out first it may just be hung up.

Not guaranteed to be working at your SSD, but worth to try.Please do this method on your own risk.  A few weeks ago my U300S ssd was half dead.Started with constant 100% disk usage and slow performance, then suddenly Windows fell into BSOD. I tried to restore and clean install Windows several time without any success; unable to format the ssd (somehow it was hard-locked).I came into conclusion that this poor thing was gone completely, so i should build a custom made M.2 ssd adapter. Look here: Custom U300S SSD adapterBefore this ssd is completely dismantled, i tried to BAKE it first. Nothing to lose anyway.(I had several good experiences with dead VGA and it worked nicely after i baked it.)The idea is similar with reflow, without any special tools. Do this simple steps.1. Take the ssd out from the laptop. 2. Unwrap the aluminium foil completely.3. Clean the ssd with isopropyl alcohol thoroughly. Make sure no glue or dirt or impurities on the ssd chip/pcb.4. Prepare the OVEN, pre-heat with temperature around 220 Celcius. Electric or Gas oven just the same.5. Use aluminium balls  or cup as support. Do not put SSD directly on the pan !! (see picture below)6. Put SSD into hot oven, let it baked for 8-9 minutes. And then turn the oven off.7. Open the oven door a little bit, let it cool down slowly for around 30 minutes.8. Re-wrap the SSD with aluminium foil and try it on your U300S. Done.Here the results. No more 100% Disk Usage.&n... Read more

Hi there, Llewh -
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
I think these steps might work.
 

Go to the upper right side (corner) of the screen to bring out the charms menu and go into PC Settings.
Click on PC and Devices.
You should see something related to mouse or TouchPad.
If there is an option, you can disable it.

You can also try these,

Go to Control Panel.
Click on Device Manager.
Find and Click on Mice and other pointing devices.
Select the MousePad and right click on it.
If there is an option then DISABLE it or click on PROPERTIES.
Go to the Driver tab and click Disable.

Update us how it goes.

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad U300s which has died, and of course I don't have current backups. I figure the SSD still has my data, and thought I'd just pull the SSD and read it on another computer, but I don't know what kind of adaptor I need to use. The SSD isn't in a typical hard drive case, it looks more like a memory card with a series of chips, but instead of edge connectors that go into a bus slot, it has a connector to a ribbon cable on one end. You can see a picture on page 58 of the hardware manual: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad_%20u300_u300s_u400_hmm_1st_edition_oct_2011... Does anyone have any hints on how I could read this data? Feel free to chastize me for not making backups :-)

A:How to read the SSD pulled from a Lenovo U300s?

Hi there. Your computer uses a Mini PCIe SSD. If you want to retrieve your data, you will need to buy a Mini PCIe SSD adapter to USB. There are many options for such on Amazon, eBay, etc.

Hello!I recieved (very) used Lenovo U300s from a collegue for 'repair and restore'. Apparently she wanted to try out Linux, and in the process she wiped out the hard drive. After realizing, that Linux does not suit her taste, she asked me to return it to (ioriginal) Windows 7 or 10. And now comes the hard part. The laptop does not come with COA sticker - neither on the underside, not inside (I checked the inside of cover and under the battery). Of course the laptop came without any recovery media, and the owner absolutely ignored making backups. Is the key lost, or is there still a way to retrieve it? I talked with her, and she seems ok with possibly updating to Windows 10, but I still need (I think) to install even for a while genuine Windows 7 to reserve Windows 10 key. Is there any other way to install directly Windows 10 that's genuine? What can I do now?

A:Getting Windows 7 back on U300s after complete wipe

hi Vatharian,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If the U300s came preloaded with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit as listed in this datasheet then you will need to do the following:
 
1. Download a Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit ISO (you can get this on the net) or if you can't find a Home Premium version, any Windows 7 64-bit ISo should do and just create a universal Windows 7 installation disc (see this guide).
 
2. After getting the ISO, follow this guide on how to create a bootable Win7 flashdrive and use it to install Win7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit on the U300s. If successful, Windows will automatically read the product key in the motherboard and will activate your copy of Windows.
 
Tip:
Once Windows is installed, you can view the product key using this guide (see Options 2 to 6)
 
3. After Win7 is installed and activated, follow this guide on how to upgrade to Windows 10 (see Step 3) then activate it.
 
Note:
You will need to the procedure above to get an activated copy of Windows 10. If you perform a clean install of Windows 10 on first attempt. you will need to start over from the top (unless you have a retail key to activate Windows 10).
 
More info:
How to Activate and resolve common Product key issues in Windows 10
 
 
Hope this helps you out.
 
Regards

I have read that the normal drive erase is not a good idea for SSD's. I have also read that most SSD manufacturers should have a utility that will allow you to force it to flush deleted data. Does anyone know if this is available thru Lenovo. The SSD controller is a Jmicron but I did not see any utilities on their website.

I was dual booting Windows 8.1 Update and Ubnutu 14.04 From the windows disk manager I deleted all Ubuntu partitions and rebooted my notebook. I was immediatlly present with the grub rescue promt. Normally this is a quick and easy fix, by booting a windows USB/CD and repairing the windows MBR.  My problem is I can't access the bios or the boot menu to change the boot order. Nothing I've tried has let me get into the bios to set my USB stick as the first boot option.  Using the small recovery key button on the side of the notebook which normally boots the notebook to the screen where you can choose which drive to boot does the same as the power button. There is no bios flash screen or abililty to press any keys before getting to the grub screen.  I've drained the battery and left over night hoping this would reset the state it seems to be stuck in but that also did nothing.  Here is a short video showing what happens when I boot the notebook http://youtu.be/2FpC2Deuawk

I have two issues that I hope you can assist me with.  The first paragraph below is for the first issue.  The second paragraph below is for the second issue.  I appreciate any assistance you could provide.
 
On 4/2/2016, I placed an order for a new display back cover and a set of hinges in the HP Parts Store.  My HP [personal information removed].  Total order cost = $233.91 in US dollars.  I paid for the parts already via credit card and the parts were delivered to me.  A friend of mine repairs laptops as a full time occupation.  She was planning to help me repair the broken laptop hinge and replace the back cover so part of the replacement hinge would be protected when I transport the computer.  Unfortunately, my friend found out that her sister was diagnosed with terminal cancer after I received the parts from the HP Parts Store.  My friend has been spending lots of time caring for her ill sister and her elderly parents in their 80s.  She is unable to help me repair the right hinge and back cover of my laptop.  The parts have not been touched and they are still in the boxes.  I would like to return the parts and receive a credit applied to my charge account; however the HP return policy states that parts must be returned in 14 days.  The HP Parts Store also charges a restocking fee.  Can you assist with this return transaction?  I would prefer to not pay the restocking fee.
