Ordering Notebook part - LCD cover

Q: Ordering Notebook part - LCD cover

Hello to all,

I have a HP pavilion dv5 laptop 15.4" and my plastic LCD frame from front side is broken. Please, have a look in the attachment. I want to order this part and since I'm not English native speaker, I'm not sure how this "frame" is called.

Can you help me and explain what is the correct term and the name (if this frame is even possible to order)???

Cracks are on the right hand side as shown with an arrow in the pic. LCD display is not damaged, only plastic part.

Thank you

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.)

The correct term would be Bezel, but HP may call it a Frame. Contacting HP would really be the only way to find out if the part is still available from the manufacturer. You could also see if you can find parts for your laptop on eBay.

Trying to figure out how I can go about ordering this since mine has become damaged. I found the part here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-... Guess I can use 5CB0V79343, or 01YU722 as an alternative. Can't figure out how to order it though through the website and not finding much online when I Google the part number. How can I go about ordering one?

My lovely 3 year old knocked my R630 on to the floor and the plastic LCD casing/lid is now broken. Hinges are fine, screen is fine - I just need to replace the plastic lid. How do I find the part number or get a new one?

Thanks.

A:Re: Satellite R630-155 - Part number for LCD cover/lid

Hey,

Here you can?t get part numbers because it?s a forum for Toshiba notebook owners only. So you can talk with normal people like you and me here.

If you need such technical details like part numbers you have to contact an authorized service provider in your country. The guys have access to Toshiba databases and can give you the exact part number and order this part too.

Good luck! :)

So I have an issue with my t460s that turned out to be a broken LCD rear cover. I posted about it and got a good answer pointing me to very thorough instructions on how to fix it:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-T400-T500-and-newer-T/T460s-loose-left-hinge-losse-from-screen... I found the part I need, it's part number 00JT994 LCD,Rear,Cover,WQHD. Now the problem is that the Lenovo shop assumes I am in the Unites States for shipping. And I am not, I am in Madrid, Spain. I am not sure what I did wrong, I started from the Spanish site with my registered user account. Then clicked on part finding and there all was in English, not a problem for me, but I think the shop assumes you are in the US from there. Is it possible to get support from Lenovo in Spain to buy this replacement part?How?

I am looking for help to solve the problem of the ENVY.The lower case is destroyed now and the upper case doesn?t hold the screws of the hinge in it anymore.By the way, I had Pavilon dv6 and I lost because of bad engineering as well.

A:Solved: How to cover a fixed part of a video or crop it

VidCoder or Handbrake can crop the image.

I use VidCoder (gui for handbrake). Simply open the video, goto settings, on the picture tab - to the right, change cropping to "custom" and adjust the bottom (or whatever edge you want to crop) and adjust the amount (number given is the number of pixels). Press the preview button to verify. Then encode. Quality will vary based on the config.

A setup guide is here: http://www.digital-digest.com/articles/VidCoder_Tutorial_page1.html

I'm modding an Optiplex 380 that someone gave me. I am missing two parts.
I am missing the side cover and the front drive cover.
Dell assigns a 5 or 6-character string to each part, for example a GTX 460SE from Alienware Aurora R4 is "GR23P".
This makes looking for specific parts easy.
I looked in the online manual and could not find the info I was looking for.
I don't necessarily need the side panel as I can make one myself but I need the plastic front cover that goes over the front drive cage.
It is similar to Part Number 0MJ126 but for the 380. Will this particular one work? It looks as if it will but you can never be too sure.
Here is an image:

Recently, the lcd of the laptop got damaged so I looked into the lcd and found out that if the board at bottom is touched the screen will go back to normal.

I have this product with 3 months left in the warranty, and I wanted a replacement part shipped back to me.My laptop took a nasty hit in a fall, and as a result, my back cover has had a piece fall off of it, along with a fracture on the bottom cover.  I went to PartSurfer and found the part I was looking for, but there's no area I can input my warranty info into.Why is this? Is self-repair not allowed under warranty?

Hi,Self repair is not allowed under warranty.You've to contact HP technical support and they would source the parts needed after assessing the damages.But accidental damages are not covered within warranty and it automatically has voided warranty. So it is chargeable.You've to search the HP part number through online stores or HP part store in your region and buy them.If you're doing the replacement yourself, whole responsibility of any further damage lies upon you.RegardsVisruth

My daughter's HP Pavilion 15-p051us notebood developed pretty severe cracking around one of the hinge locations. In looking at this, the cover doesn't seem strong enough to transfer the load of repeated opening and closing to the hinges over the life of the product. Also, the hinges seem as though they may be somewhat 'tight' as far as force needed to open the cover. Have there been other reported problems like this and/or any kind of recall that deals with beefing up the cover in the hinge areas ? Thank you

I didn't really notice this problem until a few months after having this computer. I have been making bi-weekly payments on this wonderful laptop since fall of last year through a local Circuit World. I soon started to notice that even if I opened the laptop slowly or gently, there was this awful cracking noise coming from the computer. I had gotten used to it and assumed it was a minor thing, as I have experienced with other laptops in the past. It wasn't until I had run my hand over the left corner of the laptop that I noticed that the bottom cover had been starting to "pop out" or at least not connect itself correctly to the top cover as the right side did.  I have never once damaged this laptop via tossing, dropping or rough handling. This computer is very expensive and takes a lot from my budget, so I have made sure to take the most absolute delicate care of this computer, including handling and virus protection. Unfortunately, with this computer now being excessively harder to open than it should, and the damage that I'm afraid this left hinge is causing, it has become more than just a "little" problem to me, and I fear that it will only worsen over time. I've noticed that in another forum, a customer had their HP ENVY replaced, but I'm wary that I cannot recieve the same treatment because of my purchase throught Circuit World. I will talk to the employees at Circuit World about getting it fixed or getting a replacement if that applies to me, but for...

Unfortunately it is more than the screw. Screws do not just fall out. First something has to strip the screwhole. That is usually a hinge problem. In any event if we had the full model number of the laptop we could link you to the manual which does show the dimensions of all chassis screws, and the correct hinge part numbers.

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.

It's annoying, because 10 or 15 years ago I knew how to do this, but now I can't remember. I tried searching office.com help, but without obvious search terms, it's frustrating. Can someone help?
 

A:Part text, part variable in a cell

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

Hello folks,
At the risk of sounding thick.
I have a LaCie 500gb formatted with Fat32, this was for use with my PC AND PS3. I have about 150gb used. I now want to back up my pc to make some hardware changes but i cant back this up to my EHD because its formated to fat32. I don't have enough room on my HD to save the data from my EHD, format the EHD to ntfs and save it back.
Is it possible to format an EHD to part fat32 and part ntfs?
Or is my only alternative another EHD?
Thanks for any help
Paul
