Fan replacement for laptop - does it have to be the same model?

Q: Fan replacement for laptop - does it have to be the same model?

I have a Toshiba laptop - a Satellite A -S model replacement to it the Fan laptop does model? same for be - have It s an older laptop so the fan I want to replace is hard to find and expensive Is there any way a different model fan could be used in its place Perhaps just an A without having to match teh S part Or even a non-Toshiba fan altogether Problem is that although the computer starts up fine after a few moments it shuts down My sources tell me that it s almost certainly a fan issue that to keep it from overheating it just shuts it down I ve seen the Youtube videos of what it takes to replace the thing and I m not confident enough in myself Fan replacement for laptop - does it have to be the same model? to take the entire computer apart to swap it out But I don t want to pay full retail for a fan either that a repairman will charge So I thought I see if I could just buy the fan myself at the cheapest rate then get a repair guy to swap it out with me only paying a labor charge Btw what kind of rate would I expect to pay for a laptop fan replacement I have no idea nbsp

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.

Hi..this is something I was wondering..It looks like I need a new replacement motherboard..I am going to replace it with the exact same model I have..Do I need to reinstall XP ?? any info is appreciated..

A:Do you have to reinstall Windows XP if you same model motherboard replacement ??

You should be fine, though XP will probably want to be reactivated (it will see different hardware Ids).

All drivers should work OK as long as all hardware remains identical.

I understand that Windows can get a bit...upset...if you change the motherboard without telling it, i.e. last time I upgraded my motherboard, I just whacked the new board in, and windows wouldn't boot because it thought it was a different computer...or something. If I am getting a replacement motherboard for a faulty one, which is the exact same make and model, but a different board, will I still need to do that "prep windows" thing which lets windows know you are going to be installing a new board?


A:Will Windows recognize a replacement motherboard of the same model?

I have done what you will do and surprisingly w7 booted right up with no issues. Some people have had to make the call to MS to reactivate after a board change.
If your installer is a full retail version and not OEM, you should be ok.

 Hi @Amir8, Welcome to the HP Forums! I understand from your posts that you are having an issue with your HP Spectre x360 - 13-4005dx Notebook and the cracked LCD screen.  The new Panel will come with a display panel cable, microphones, hinges, webcam, and wirelessantenna cables and transceivers if ordering from HP. Other companies should be including these parts. I can not confirm any thing other than what HP does. Here is a link to order HP Parts, if you need it.

A:(Laptop) Model number 6133 AJP laptop - new case/processor needed

Howdy and welcome to the Forum.

Have you contacted the Manufacturer regarding replacement parts? That's where I would start.

BUT to be honest, although you do not give all the specs of the PC, I'd be willing to bet that you could replace the whole thing with a new laptop cheaper than replacing parts like case, MOBO, Processor, RAM, and HD !!!

So unless there is some "sentimental value", like the case broke stopping a bullet shot at you by terrorists...I'd shop for a new unit.

Hi All,
I had a Hp Dv6 6c43cl laptop with windows 7 home premium.I had burned it recovery disks,but due to some problem i had to replace my laptop.Now i have got dv6 t-B00.....specifications are differerent,and it came with window 7 home basic,,,,i want to use that home premium which was in my previous laptop.can i use that recovery disks to my new laptop??will it work?

A:Use recovery disk to another laptop of same model?

Negative!! The recovery disk that you made makes no difference because the license number on your new setup is only set to activate Home Basic. Using the license number from the first laptop on this new machine is illegal, and I think there are certain members of this forums admins who point out that they don't tolerate anyone telling you how to get around this issue, anyhow...

I have a completely frozen machine. I resorted to taking out the thumb drive, pushing the off button and pulling out the power cord. The machine has  been completely unresponsive to any attempt for input and sits there with a blank screen and backlit keyboard.

I'm needing to reformat my laptop due to numerous software issues. Reinstalling Vista now, but I don't know my model number. I know the laptop is a Gateway, M series, and the model number is listed as 5A6. But that doesn't correspond to anything Gateway wants to pull up. I can't use the hardware tool from gateway as I don't have internet on it (it wasn't even booting anymore before).

Any help on how I can find the model number to get the necessary drivers would be hugely appreciated. I will answer any question I can to get this fixed.

Edit: Through the Gateway warranty lookup and the SNID, I was able to determine that the laptop is a M73. Wish it would say that ANYWHERE on the laptop itself, though...

Hi, I'm trying to find out just how much memory I can add to my laptop, it's Inspiron 17 model 3737, it has Kingston PC3L 12800S, 1600 MHz, 204 Pin, 4 GB install from dell and I was wanting to add 8 more GB to laptop to make it 12 GB, in reading thru some things on the computer it says it can support up to 16 GB of memory. But after reading in some of the forums people are saying that you can only add 4 more GB of memory.
I would hope some one out there can help me and tell me that yes 16GB is right, and just adding 8BG to have 12GB is fine,


Hello, well I did some checking and to me it seemed I could add more than up to just have a total of 8GB of memory, so I ordered 1 stick of Kingston PC3L 12800, 1600 of memory the same brand of the 4GB memory the Dell 17r model 3737 came with, I wanted to stick with the same brand,So for the heck of it ordered and installed and well low and behold when I went in and checked system it is showing that I have 12GB of memory. So what it says of what I read on the computer was right, I can go up to 16GB if need be. But I think 12GB is more than enough memory for what I'm using my computer for, most web, and 2010 Office loaded like a champ with no problems. And is Duel Channel DDR3L SODIMM. So if anyone else is looking to up grade their memory look into your system and it will tell you.
But 30YEAREXPERT Thank you anyway for trying to help me and I do appreciate you time and help.

 Hi @JayLyn5476,  Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome.  I have looked into your issue about your HP ENVY m7-k111dx and issues with it just shutting down. Honestly, if you were not having any issues with the previous operating system doing this, I would think that it was Windows 10 and something not happy about the install. Now, if this was happening before, I would try:Control Panel  Power Options, Change plan settings, Restore default settings for this plan.Control Panel  Power Options,  Change plan settings, Change advanced power settings, Processor power management, System cooling policy.On Battery: set to ActivePlugged in: set to Active You could  try using the Windows Update Troubleshooting tool to fix any updates that have not come through for Windows.  Please restart the Notebook twice to make sure all update have been completed! Please let me know how it goes. Click the Thumbs up to give me a Kudos high five, just to say thanks for trying. Thanks.

A:windows 10 refurbished laptop model 15-f272wm

If the laptop / notebook is refurbished, can I assume you have no user data or user profile on this system yet?If the answer is no, then try the following: On powering on the laptop, as the blue HP POST screen pops up, press the "F11" key on the keyboard a few times. (You may have to power the system off by holding the power button for 5 seconds and trying again if you don't get the screen the first time). This should take you to the HP System Recovery Screen. If this doesn't work some systems us the "ESC" key in the top left corner of the keyboard instead. Once you enter HP System Recovery you should be able to follow the prompts to do a full factory restore of the system. Please note: This will erase all data and user profiles from the laptop, including the user profile that you can't login to, as you don't seem to have the correct username and password available. This process will take about 1 to 2 hours, so be patient.Here is a link to a HP site that explains exactly how to run Factory Restore: Once the system restore is done, and it powers back on, it should take you back to the "Out of Box Experience" or OOBE for short.  This will take you through setting up the system with your own user profile and installing factory software and drivers for the first time.The OOBE usually takes about 20 ~ 30 mins in windows 10. When you get to the screen asking you to create a Microsoft Account to login with, you can either create a new Microsoft Account if you wish, or use an existing one. If you currently have no internet connection and are doing this "offline" then I'd suggest that you choose the "Next" option without filling in a username and password. The next screen will then ask you if you want to create an "Offline User Account" this is a great idea if the system isn't going to be connected to the internet constantly, such as if you use a mobile broadband device like your mobile phone to provide internet, instead of an always on system like ADSL over wifi. If you get stuck, message back with specifics and I'll answer where I can.

I recently bought a refurbished HP laptop a to laptop system slightly model? from a one Transfer different dv - cl Overall I thought the laptop was great However it had a problem it periodically shut down suddenly as if it had lost power and I contacted HP I was quite surprised that this refurbished laptop had a -month support contract Unfortunately things did not go well with the repair process I had to send it in three times and every time they sent it back something new was broken Some of Transfer system from one laptop to a slightly different model? these things I figured out and fixed but others required sending it in again Plus every time I moved all my files amp work back amp forth from the cl to an older laptop it ate up way too much of my time Eventually I told HP quot This is nuts I'm not sending it in again quot To my astonishment they just contacted me and offered me a NEW laptop to replace the faulty refurbished one Wow Major kudos to HP It's a higher-end model dv - -- Core i instead of i TB drive instead of GB GB RAM instead of So this seems like a fabulous deal My question I've spent way too much time setting up this laptop -- installing software customizing etc I would really rather not have to do that again If they sent me another dv - cl I would just take an image backup of my laptop and transfer the image to the new one Can I do that from the cl to the I suspect most OS settings will work OK and Win will probably figure out and fix any drivers etc that are different For example the has a Radeon graphics processor vs ATI in the cl The bigger disk is my biggest concern What happens if I restore a GB image to a TB drive Can I extend that partition or would it be better possible to create a second GB partition Will I run into licensing issues Anything else to worry about Thanks Gary

A:Transfer system from one laptop to a slightly different model?

People on this forum have restored images to new hardware and had it work out OK, although the standard recommendation is to do a fresh install.

I don't think the larger drive will be a factor--you should still be able to extend or manipulate your partitions as needed. You may have to use a third party tool to do it.

Licensing is another issue. I assume you have 2 OEM product keys, one for each laptop? Each of those is supposedly tied to one machine and I don't know if you could use the "new" product key to activate the transferred image from the old laptop.

I have a burnt up motherboard in my laptop. My question is do I have to match the exact model to the one that is in there already inside? Or can I get one alittle cheaper? The one that is inside is around $200, and I was hoping to spend a bit less.

Me and hubby can replace and change out anything on a desktop, and even build one from scratch. But laptops aren't our thing

This one is an ASUS K52F REV 2.0. Any suggestions, or do I have to match it up with what is factory?

A:Replacing motherboard in laptop, does it have to be exact model #?

The key word here is "have". No, you don't "have" to - theoretically. As long as you plan to clean install windows then there should be no reason why the parts (display, HDD, DVD, and - assuming compatibility - RAM) will not all work in a new motherboard.

The issue is configuration. Because of the design of the laptop shell, the hard drive and RAM need to go in one particular location to be accessible, the USB ports, sound, and card reader must all align with the openings in the shell or you are into some serious modifications. For these reasons alone the idea becomes unreasonable.

But if you found a motherboard from a similar Asus laptop that has the same layout then sure. It could work.

But at some point the time you spend getting it to work will exceed the value of the $50 or so you are saving. If you are doing it for fun and adventure that is one thing. If you are doing a repair for need it could be a time sink.

Guys, I have a problem with my Acer laptop Aspire 1640 and request help. The problem is the m/c hangs when i put on the battery. I cannot boot. It works fine on AC mains with the battery removed ! So I've removed the battery and just work on AC mains supply.

Few weeks ago I had formatted the HDD and lost all original drivers that were preinstalled by the company. However, I now have a CD copy of all the original drivers with me. On AC mains, when I install them, they do but on a reboot they all disappear. The Wireless wont work etc. The display settings go back to default.

What could the problem be and how to solve it? Can anyone help me? My OS is XP.

Appreciate any feedback on the above

Hi, Try the following. Download and reinstall the Chipset driver on the following link. When this has completed, do not restart as prompted, instead download and reinstall the AMD/Intel Switchable Graphics driver on the link below. When this has completed, shutdown the notebook. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to launch the Start-up Menu and then select f10 to enter the bios menu.  Press f9 to load the defaults ( this is sometimes f5, but the menu at the bottom will show the correct key ), use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter.  Press f10 to save the setting and again use the arrow keys to select 'Yes' and hit enter. Let windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K

If you wanted to play newer games, you'd have to get a new video card....but if you're running a PCI video card right now, then it may not be worth it...check if you have an AGP slot, is should be above the PCI slots on the motherboard, and slightly offset from them...if you have an AGP slot, then that's good, because you could get a good video card...but if you don't, you'll probably be better off getting a whole new system rather than just upgrading the video.

Just to be clear, 32-bit is actually 16,777,216 colors, so its much more then 256 which is just 256 colors. So for 256 you need to lower the color depth not increase it.

A:how to fix black screen gateway laptop model w350a t-series

If you never ever see anything whatsoever on the screen it is a hardware fault.Assuming the above and if the computer sounds as if it is booting up normally then it could be:The connectors at either end of the cable between the mother board and the screen, the cable, or even the screen itself.With the computer booted up try moving the lid back and forth slowly. If you suddenly get a glimpse of a picture then it is most likely cable failure at the hinge, or maybe connectors loose.If you see anything but black on the screen during bootup then this could be a different matter.EDIT: Tidied up wording.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and install the program.
You will now need to take a screen shot and copy that back to the working PC and attach the screen shot in a reply on the forum here.

On windows 8 - (i do not have windows 8) but, it would appear that, When you first try to run, you may get a message that .net framework is needed, and included in that message is a link to download/install.

Run the program

post which SSID name is yours, its located in the list, under network "Adapter Name" (1st column)
For a reliable (or robust as the Xirrus user guide says) wireless connection you need a signal of about -70 dBm or better. "A desirable signal level for a robust Wi-Fi connection will be green".
note: the signal level is a negative number, so for example -88 is worst and -40 is better

I'm about to buy the HP Star Wars? Special Edition (15-an050ca) Notebook. It's running Win10 home edition.

My question is: Is there a way for me to remove the Star Wars content safely while it's new. I just don't want the SW stuff to clutter up my computer.

When I help friends that buy PCs with "bloatware" loaded on them I do the following:
1. Remove all applications that are obviously unecessary from the Control Panel>Programs and Feature>Uninstall or change a program list.
2. Check the startup items Task Manager>Startup list and disable anything left.
3. Check the registry for any items left in the HKEY_Current_User\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and RunOnce locations for things loading at startup/signin and delete them.
4. Check the Startup folder in both the user profiles and the all users area for items and delete them.
5. Check Task Manager for running processes that should not be running, track down the program their associated with, and delete them.
6. Check the computer services to see what processes are there, track down those that look like bloatware, and disable and track them down and delete them.
7. Look in the Program Files and and Program Files (X86) folder for bloatware program folders, check to see if they've been emptied, and delete them. If programs remain, I look inside their program folders for unistall programs that might be there.
8. Run through all the steps to make sure I didn't miss something.
I've done this with several HP laptops. HP is notorious for loading "management" programs that add no utility and slow things down a lot. These often check for updates at startup and slow down machines terribly. Lenovo does the same thing.

I am looking for the actual part number for the bottom outside cover of a HP Envy m7 17" Notebook. The product number is M1W07UA#ABA and a search of that product reveals that it is an m7-n101dx. Howver I cannot find a link on HP site to locate the actual part number of the bottom cover. It is aluminum molded around plastic. I accidently laid my elbow on it and dented and cracked it. Can anyone point me in the right direction. I have seen some used ones on ebay but I want to make sure I get the right part before buying or bidding on one since i will be stuck with it once I buy it. Thanks in advance for any help.

This scanner ran with Pagis 3.0 without any problems at one time. Since my system crashed and HDD was repartitioned and formatted, i can't boot up with scanner on. The driver that came with cd works for a while but it will hang up when i reboot. I tried the newest driver for scanner which does not work at all.
There are no conflicts in device manager and it does recognized scanner by name and model when using driver version " MiraScan V3.20". Anyone have any ideas how to deal with this problem.

You have three options.
(1) Send the motherboard in to be repaired (poor choice) I have used this option several times. Fast fail again rate is very high. You can easily find people on ebay that fix boards.
(2) Get a new motherboard if you love the laptop and it is very good condition other wise
(3) Junk it and get a new laptop (best option)
