- I'm sure it will, but it will run at SATA II speeds
- You will need to get the whole top scanner assembly since it's sold as a single component
- It sounds like it's a CCD issue, and you will need to replace your CCD in this camera
- You can use any old USB card reader in this computer since it uses a standard MicroATX motherboard and standard internal USB headers I like this card reader, but any standard card reader will work that fits the 3.5" expansion bay http://www.amazon.com/Rosewill-Internal-Reader-Ports-RCR-IM5001/dp/B003WLZNH4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&...-3&keywords=internal+card+reader the 3.5" expansion bay caddy part number is DU558, and you can buy those on eBay as with many other Dell parts, or you can contact Dell, but I'd say check eBay since the part will be cheaper there This is a work in progress, but I think it should make sense as it is, and this is how to install it(it has Floppy Drive removal steps, but these can be skipped) For drive screws, they're the same as the black HP DVD drive mounting screws, and should work if you have those on hand or can get those Dell Inspiron 530s DVD drive/3.5" component
- PCI-e X16, PCI-e X1, 2 PCI slots
- It sounds like the battery is starting to fail, or there is a short circuit in the camera somewhere to me First, change the battery on the camera, and see if the fault goes away(but do be weary of this using a nonstandard battery, since Sony loves them so much) If that's no help, I'd see about a short circuit on the motherboard, or a failing flash capacitor in the camera A motherboard short will be hard to repair, so be ready for a challenge if that's the case, but the flash capacitor usually means a flash board is required to fix it since you cannot get the capacitor separately easily
- You will need a 2012 MBA, MBA or Mac Pro SSD to perform the upgrade because it's a nonstandard pinout if you wanted to do this, so it might get expensive
- If it runs Android 4.0 or newer, you can try and "freeze" any apps and components related to the cellular and see if that works If you don't have buttons on the digitizer, it should have Android 4.0 at the least Android 4.0 has soft buttons in the operating system, so capacitive buttons don't do much the original Galaxy Tab has capacitive buttons because Android 2.2 and 2.3 required them You want to freeze all Sprint apps, SIM Toolkit and anything else that looks like it has to do with the cellular Here's what I found on a HTC Inspire 4G if this is of any use 1) SIM Toolkit 2) Data Dashboard 3) Dialer 4) Dialer Storagfe 5) Messages 6) Phone 7) WiFi Hotspot *If anything is not on your tablet, or unlisted it's because I got that off a HTC Smartphone 1) freeze apps one at a time and test it To do this, go under settings, Applications and locate the Sprint apps, SIM Toolkit and anything else relating to the cellular part Another option is to remove the SIM card and prevent the cellular antenna from running, if it...
- Take the video card out of the machine and use the integrated video and see if that solves the problem If you neighbor uses the onboard video, use a cheap PCI-e card and see if that works If not, it's his video cable or monitor
- Try this fix since you have nothing to lose, but know there is a very real risk of doing further damage to the motherboard, but at this point, what is there to lose by trying? What you are doing is reflowing your motherboard and seeing if you can make it work without buying a motherboard, and if this doesn't work, decide what you want to do then This reflow isn't recommended on a computer you care about since there's a chance you can do further damage, but being the board is shot I see nothing wrong trying this Technicians do not suggest this because it's not up to their standard in reliability, but I sure don't see a issue on dead parts if you can't buy a new motherboard, or justify it, but this case is fine with me to tell you how Here is your service manual to remove the motherboard: http://archive.org/details/dell-manual-inspiron-14service-manual I could not find anything closer then this, but the general idea should be the same since the 14z is a slim Inspiron 14 Disassemble the laptop down to the mother...

It shreds as you remove it from the tablet itself
Good guide, but I would just like you to know all you have to do is remove the battery, screws for the bezel, hinge screws, drop the back of the LCD housing, and remove the LCD data cable and screws, and reverse that
There is no need to remove the display assembly
I have tested the warranty seal on my out of warranty Nexus 7; it's not tamper evident, but it does shred when you remove it
I used to have a small desk at the time, and my laptop is 17". I had no other choice at the time. My new desk is larger, so it's not as much of a issue.
Would the hard drive not get damaged from doing that? Magnets hear hard drives is bad news, so be VERY careful doing that
That's why you don't modify the official HD and just get an enclosure designed for the 360 S
It's a way to avoid modifying official hardware and try not to violate the TOS, because it sounds like that applies to Microsoft hardware
Blur out the product key on this picture
Because I got another old system in that was given to me because I needed to replace the power supply, it's an AMD system and handles Linux pretty well(I still get the Dell Dimension 5150..... this one is just dual core, unlike the Dell)
integrated ATI Xpress 200 graphics(64MB VRAM pulled from system RAM)
40GB HDD(they wanted the HD pulled)
WiFi(worked right away)
DVD-ROM and burner
It handles Linux well...... don't fret VIA, it will probably work... if not, I'd like to know, and I will need your system you used to find out the chipset too to add it to the bad AMD chipset list
doesn't look like it to me
Yes, you technically will, but the same goes if you install a custom SSD when they come out
