Dell: Inspiron 14R-N4010 Hard Drive Replace / Dis-assembly – Part 2

[WPXperVideo id=68 ]all right so I know you couldn’t wait to get back to this I had a customer stop in he forgot his power supply yesterday and dropped it by and then you know a couple cause is that whatever blah blah blah so anyway look so I can ready take this apart all right at least take the motherboard out right here the Wi-Fi connects like a little slot chip thing and that’s what it’s hooked on right now so you have to try to gently pop that up let’s see there we go that’s out great you want to keep that in mind when you put it back together – and now we finally access the hard drive I know that’s what we are all impatient and waiting for well it’s a long enough and we really have to do to get this off of the motherboard there’s two screws to visit just to screws here on the side for the hard drive assembly stuff whatever and that’s really all there is to that part and that just slides right out of there now we just have to change the hard drive awesome this should be loose usually it’s like a tight fit but then you know you play with a little bit in there you guys good four of these two on each side of course and that’s uh-oh that those four screws keep them right there well whatever you want to place them that’s not right there hard drive up to the side that’s a that’s a good Drive it works it’s our test drive here we go to put the new Drive back take that out of its little plastic any stetic bag make sure this will go on in the right place how did this go again I forgot already of great memory like this if I do remember it correctly well to make sure to be folder go back on place I wonder are you here for my gaming videos or are you here from this video will you stick around for my gaming videos of me sucking at video games is it possible and I think that’s how it goes maybe yep that is exactly how it goes should I only not to move it anywhere from there but I mean I it you know whatever here we go now you can put it back together the fun part the most exciting part the part you tuned in for putting it back together okay so more [Music] on each side you know whatever it’ll be easier to work with cool that harddrive goes back into place why the did they create it like this in fact it would be great if there is designer commented on this why are you idiot and why did you design it this way not everybody is going to ship it back to Dao and why would you want to put your own technical people through this hassle it’s like you can possibly break many other things in the process of you know getting back to where you got to replace us at there should be a little panel here go look at other laptop designs there should be no reason have to take the entire motherboard out I might have damaged something in the process of this and I hope I did not I don’t think I did I don’t want to this goes back into place make sure it all lines up all that good stuff um I think that is good make sure this isn’t place down here let’s go yes let’s make sure this is all in here there we go now that should work let’s see there we go good it’s in place [Music] that should be in place let’s see about the rest of everything that doesn’t go in yet this nope this goes in next and putting it back together hopefully I can put it back together in a better record amount of time than I took it apart but also at the same time you do not want to rush this take your time take some patience take a chill pill whatever the works for you and put this together correctly so that it still works when you turn it back on I was glad it was working when I last put it together so let’s make sure it works again this time when I put it together this time as I said before all these screws are the same size so they should all be the same size that may or may not fool you I don’t think a screw goes there not screws don’t go everywhere on this board actually I think some of them actually caught from the bottom as well and that’s more than likely a case because they obviously have to hold on the top panel stuff that goes up here usually where it indicates stuff like these numbers be 8 9 7 B 4 B 3 B 6 B 5 B 1 B 2 B yeah that’s usually where the screws go I did actually find it kind of interesting that um when I was looking into how to work on this thing because you know before we work on a customer’s computer if it’s a model we have not played with before we want to make sure we’re taking it apart and putting it together correctly so this screwed right here the ground for the LCD screen I want to assume it actually wanted the person who made the forum the forum post about it documenting it working on it this screw was completely stripped it was stripped he really you know it was I mean he still worked on it afterward but that screw it was just a mess to deal with for that person but he got it working good for him his girlfriend’s happy but I don’t know that person personally myself it was just you know something that came up with Google and pointed me to a forum about it documented with pictures that hey buddy where’s your videos this will be my first video of doing something like this other videos I’ve taken apart stuff I’m going to do an unboxing video let me see that is all the screws for that I think I did not miss anything that’s he did i I do not think I did that’s awesome tricky part here the drive I trouble getting it out without pulling the panel stuff off this is ready to go back on so that’s what I’m going to do now like I said you want to watch how everything goes back together too

Dell Inspiron N5110 Hard Drive Replacement (Full Disassembly and Reassembly)

[WPXperVideo id=31 ]well it looks like we have a problem and I’m going to have to fix this at home this is in my machine this is somebody else’s it’s got a bad harddrive but we have a replacement harddrive you will need some tools you will need a small Phillips and small flat screwdriver we’ll disconnect that unfortunately on this model Dell which happens to be an inspiration which is made in China of course Dell in their infinite wisdom decided that they’re going to bury the harddrive completely inside the system one might think that it’s going to be right under this cover over here but that’s not to be so in order to repair this machine here’s what we have to do first this can act all the peripherals this happens to be for mousey there’s no reason to stick that in a USB 3 port when you got a USB 2 on the other side where it doesn’t matter but it’s not mine there’s a card reader you’ve got to take a little blank out so you just push that and take that out flipper upside down so this is a disassembly and replacement of hard drive on a dell inspiron in 5110 move the clips and take out the battery now we have 13 screws to remove fortunately all of these are the same size so you really don’t have to be too particular about grouping them or putting them in any sort of fashion you just take them out there we are a little later there will be some smaller size screws but there’s only five them okay this is of course with your small Philips this is the thirteenth screw this one is captive and you just pop that cover off and take the side optical drive comes right out you just slide it out put that aside and now you flip it back over open it up and now we have to remove the keyboard you’ll need your flat blade for this there are a series of clips here on the keyboard you have for them one two three four on this model and basically what you’re going to do is push in on the clip do not slip with the screwdriver and scratch a little plastic chrome because then it’s all scratched and nobody likes that so you just kind of get in the groove there and just push it in and I like to put my fingernail in there to kind of help pop it up just a bit it doesn’t matter you sometimes you’ll miss the clip and the keyboard will pop back down when you just push in on those and then try to get in here with your fingernail sometimes you can go with the screwdriver and pop up your keyboard you pull it forward towards the screen it’s a little tight flip it up upside down now you’ve got to disconnect the cable you just flip up the little plastic thing and it pops out set the keyboard aside three more flat panel connector cables FPC’s whatever they’re cold disconnect that that’s where the power button this one is for the touchpad this one is for these buttons here that nobody ever uses and now it looks like we have about four screws you’ll need your phillips again for that so take out those these are the same size you can just put them in your same screw pile no line can buy very nice two three four screws okay that should be it I don’t see any other screws so now stick your fingers in the slot here for the DVD drive went stick your fingers in here and just rip off the top cover now we have to remove the LCD screen and I already see that we have a small issue if you notice right here that is disconnected it shouldn’t be that way this was sent to Dell previously and apparently Dell didn’t do a good job putting it back together because that should have been connected anyway here’s how you do it you disconnect your wireless connectors you’ll have to disconnect that and that and over here this is the cable that connects to the LCD you just get your thumbs in there using your thumb nails just kind of push on the connector and you can work it out like that alright and now you take out the screws for the screen these are all again the same size once again so you can just put these with the well we drop that one in there we’ll get it doesn’t matter because we’re taking a little part okay now that you have those four screws out make sure you have all the wires disconnected lift the LCD off and set that aside now you’re going to remove this trim piece it just kind of pops up and you just kind of work it out like that set that aside and now there are a couple of other things to disconnect one is I believe what’s the this is the Bluetooth module just put your fingernail under that and pick it up the cable for the speakers you just work that out with your index finger nails and take that out and now we have five screws to remove which are here these are the smaller screws to set them aside separately to three sometimes you don’t need to remove these two screws but I do as a matter of course if I don’t end up needing to remove them I just put them back later these boards are plugged together it’s just the press fit so you just kind of lift up while holding the underneath board down sometimes it’s tight there we go and you now lift up the mainboard and remove it while I have that out the screw I drop this right in there so let me just get that out there he is okay you can use the base of the machine as a nice little workspace and here’s the hard drive to replace so we have a couple screws here these are also small screws I tend to keep them separate from the other five but I believe they are actually the same size so it doesn’t really matter there’s two screws so you take those out and just wiggle the hard drive out you can put that aside now you have to transfer over the bracket so I’m just going to take the new drive out of the thing here save the silica gel for something else put the new drive next to the old one so you can match up the same orientation of the connectors in the same place and that so you don’t forget how how it goes and these four screws two on each side there are two separate brackets you just do them one at a time okay that slide that out of the way by the way you should be wearing an anti-static wrist strap and not do this on a tablecloth but because I’m a ninja I don’t need that we put these screws in turn it 180 degrees and take out the other side okay set the old drive aside you can put it in an anti-static bag but it’s bad anyway so fortunately this error was a more of a transient type thing where it told you in time rather than actually telling you oh there’s a harddrive problem after already failed so in this case we’re lucky and was able to save the data on that okay brackets are transferred so just pick that up come back here now you’ll notice the two connectors here that lines up with this here in case you forget you just slide it back in your two screws you had separate go back to secure the hard drive back to the main board so that’s in look there we go okay now at this point some people actually take this little board off it’s the same press fit connector as we had there I generally leave it on and just trying to kind of weasel it in there so you kind of have to hook it in the back first like that and lay it down you have to make sure you get the sound cable out of the way and then you just kind of work it down until you’ll kind of know when it sits in there right and when it does the two little standoffs are going to line up perfectly with the holes here and you just push down to secure that we’re now going to replace the five screws make sure that this small dotter board is connected to the main board still you can just see the standoffs right through the screw holes so we have two three for five we’re going to reconnect the speaker cable audio cable whatever you want to call it bluetooth module just press fits into that in this direction although it looks like it’ll stick out from the machine it doesn’t you just got to line it up these tend to be a little bit of a problem sometimes to get them lined up but that just kind of goes in like that and now we do everything basically in reverse order we’re going to take the trim piece take all the schmutz off of it because sometimes that happens and we’ll just get this in just kind of snap it in everything looks nice and lined up on the sides here so we’re good and now we’re going to put the LCD screen back on the unit the pins on the screen here these posts whatever fit into the holes here and here sometimes you’ll end up with these broken and you kind of have to have somebody hold the screen for you you just kind of wiggle it until it fits in there make sure these cables are not pinched under that and the screen will sit there provided your hinge standoffs are in good shape four screws will secure and these are the standard size screws from everything else four screws will secure the LCD back to the base assembly I recommend that you plug the LVDS cable the LCD cable back in LVDS in case it’s on jeopardy tonight by the way stands for low voltage differential signaling and you just kind of work it until it feels right and push it in with your fingers fingernails that’s in and now you retouch the wireless connectors these are marked that one’s not filled in that one is so that one’s the black wire so you just kind of put it over it these are a little fidgety as well and they have some trouble there’s one and two that’s that okay Thomas assembly put it in the back end in first like that push down everywhere along the perimeter the side and back here just kind of mush it down till it goes I recommend you next reconnect your cables before putting the screws in because if you put the screws in you may forget to reconnect these cables so do that first you just slide them in under the thing and push down little keeper these are a little fidgety as well so sometimes you have to just work with switch hands off and do that kind of stuff till you can get it in there just be careful with them they’ll go if you just go nice and easy with them so fit that in put that down there are four screws for this so we got these are all again the standard regular-sized screws two three four and your keyboard goes back in we’ll lift that back up because sometimes that can go back down this cable is a little tricky because it looks like it just goes in but on this model it goes this way you have to flip it upside down and upside down again sometimes these are a real pain to get in there but it looks like I just got it first try a lot of times you’ll have to play with it you know it’s right when the white line just lines up with that now once you have that the little things sticking out here you just kind of slide it back in there make sure it’s pushed back all the way snap snap snap snap and push down on the sides because sometimes a little catches for that flip her back over and start replacing screws you will sometimes have to hold that little back trim piece in order to get the corner screws in occasionally it doesn’t want to stay and you just got to hold it it doesn’t matter really how you put them together some people like to do an X pattern and it really doesn’t matter with something like this the screws generally all line up 12th screw these pieces back your optical drive slides in there is no screw for that but rather there’s a protrusion on the cover holds it in place last screw reinstall your battery lock it always lock it don’t leave it unlocked we’re now going to reinstall the SD card blank it just pops in there and just push it in to click and this is going to go back in there and we have successfully replaced the hard drive we’ll just go into the BIOS I believe it’ll show you see different powers on I’m just that good and let us see fixed hard drive Western Digital 750 gig have a nice day okay I have created a USB flash drive of the recovery media prior to replacing the hard drive as you just seen as all the stuff there still and we’re all set so we’re going to do a factory recovery it says the lead SATA and resets all partitions will click on next this will recover your extra space drive to the factory condition Thank You China do you confirm yes I do click on next your computer is about to be restored all data currently on your computer will be deleted and replaced with your selected full system backup only the C partition that should be capitalized but let that one slide will be affected other partitions will not be impacted may be affected if an emergency file and folder backup was created it will still be saved in the location you selected so basically it just told you a whole bunch of now you’re not sure yeah continue just do what I want next formatting and it’s going to go through that and reinstall and we will come back once I have the system at the ubi out of box experience screen well it’s a little bit later now and here we are at the out of box experience I’m going to run through this we’ll hit next I’m going to look you away while I put the name in because you’re not to see that kind I’ll hit next now password the user whoopsies the user can set that up later I’m using the mouse with my left hand so a little jiggly with it recommend it is fine we are in the Eastern time zone and I’m not worried about the time and date right now the date is correct the time is quite off so we’ll just bump that up oh there’s all kinds of networks all kinds of networks look at that full signal strength unsecured Network oh next home network and that’s pretty much the deal this is going to connect it to my network and apply the settings and we’re just going to skip the homegroup things we don’t need that and windows is going to finalize the settings and welcome us to windows preparing the desktop and that is pretty much all there was to it as you saw in the video before about how to replace the hard drive as long as you have your recovery media ready or a copy of Windows to install and your appropriate drivers it isn’t typically that big of a deal and fortunately like I explained the hard drive in this unit did not fail before giving that error or something like that it gave the error rather it gave the error but still a lot of to function this step always takes a long time especially on the first boot up instead of just creating a new user account it is still loading and I know this is super exciting don’t buy a machine without a harddrive indicator light because then you have no idea if it’s actually stalled or what the deal is and I got to restart to apply these changes we’re going to do that later and this is all fine we’ll just hit finish it’s going to sit there forever and keep loading it’s going to personalize these settings it just switched into the arrow theme and it’s the personalizing settings loading away we have a storm brewing outside another big snowstorm something else we need this is terribly exciting while we’re still loading just got to hang on and wait and we have a desktop we have sound and I wants to set up this crap so what I’m going to do is just tell it goodbye next thing you do is check device manager you can just right click on my computer and hit properties and device Mangler just to ensure that it’s updates and all kinds of stuff there’s no bangs so we’re good now I’ll just apply all the windows updates

If you plan on working on your laptop, please take notes and take your time. This video makes things look very easy. Some connectors will fall apart easier than they will disconnect and can take several minutes to slowly work apart. It is VERY easy to break small components that are expensive to replace. Depending on your individual skill level you may have more of a chance of breaking something than fixing something so if your laptop is important to you, please let an experienced technician handle it. I have over 10 years experience working with computers. I will try my best to answer questions but please keep them related to the video and the work being done. Thank you for watching!

Dell: Inspiron 14R-N4010 Hard Drive Replace / Dis-assembly – Part 1

[WPXperVideo id=24 ]hello and how is it going at this time instead of destroying a power supply I have to swap the hard drive on this Dell something something I remember the model off the top of my head Inspiron n4 0 1 0 the fun part about this one is well all done let me get back to it the hard drive on this come to customers computer was going bad it didn’t completely go bad but it was on its way it was slow you know really didn’t want to cooperate whatever so it it’s not completely dead but it will be dead soon enough so skip it let’s just save the hassle swap the hard drive so cool let’s get started um yes remove the battery now the fun one about this one is already unlocked front one about this one is ah it’s not like traditional computer stuff it’s uh let me see there’s only one back panel back here and that only has the RAM yeah only the RAM in that slot and oh that’s it now normally I wouldn’t even care about recording this I guess but there’s no disassembly videos doing this out there so I might as well be that one cool guy that does that and helps out other technicians potential technicians do-it-yourselfers whatever the yeah you don’t have to worry just take all these screws out of the bottom they are all the same size so mixing them up don’t worry about it the only ones that are different back here are the ones for the battery but those are much smaller you won’t mix those up if you whatever so just remove all the screws shoot this thing squeaky that’s what you get with these things though come on grab it there we go I didn’t quite want to break the bad news of the customer but I had to but for how much it it gave a hassle of taking it apart I’m just trying to say it’s more than 50 books although we’re going to stick with 50 books because hopefully it works afterward because it does work now we put in a test drive to test it to make sure that’s it before we go ahead and be like okay we have to replace the drive but yeah we do have to replace the drive there’s however many screws back here I’ve not counted them you just got to take them all out don’t worry about anything else just take them all out let’s see yes there was one two or three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen maybe I’m bad maybe I’m wrong maybe it’s more than 14 maybe it’s less 15 I cannot yet take the drive out now okay it seems them on to the fun part that’s mate that’s not four step the fun part now I got a pop all this out I’m trying to remember whether I pop I think I took the keyboard out first it’s been a good few days since I last did this but the fun part is okay make sure it’s safe or remove that I like this this is convenient it has a little tab that holds the ribbon cable in pop that out ever so gently set that off to the side where you can forget about it in fact let’s forget about that drive okay there’s no screws immediately in this vicinity well let’s go ahead and get all this out and taken care of there’s this little plastic piece let’s set that off right there it’s not going anywhere and take out these more ribbons they are there’s three here in this little spot right here lift the tabs up ever so gently you can easily and effortlessly break those out of their little slot thingies and you can lose them and you do not want to do that especially if it’s a customer which of course this is this case I already disassembled this once because there is a drive in here it was it just a test drive we advised them you know what if you want to you can have it with a small little 40 gig Drive I think it was 40 gig and you know be done with it but these days you want the drive size so ever so gently there’s tabs around here just gently pry them out don’t force anything you do not want to break anything and you know just try to gently right out which I’m going to now I am in the process of doing want me to concentrate for a moment there we go almost there are we almost there I sure hope so this should all come out ever so there’s tabs up here now we have to pop out I have to pop out we all can do this together I almost feel oh yes I almost forgot about that one here we go screws right here make sure to remove all of these screws not some of them all of them there’s these ones back here in the battery area I almost forgot about those what you want to do do not lose your screws you know try to organize them and try to remember how they all go back in place you don’t wanna you know botch it up and those screws and says I don’t really know if I have to remove these or not but I really don’t think so but you know what I just want to be on the safe side while I’m down here I want to make sure that you know it’s all good okay there we go and cool that should be good the front top pad bezel whatever should come out with no issue it on that let’s ensure that and there we go awesome and it looks like one of the screw things here I have to find out where it was came out so you always do want to watch for that as well I’ll find it when we put it back together set that off to the side you don’t need to dabble with that for the moment and here we’re at the coming to the last portion kind of not really there’s always more to go there was something holding this in place but there should nut but not be anything seems it was just that top panel so that’s off to you also want to watch for the screws that are here because after I got it all back together I realized hey I have extra screws three right here make sure they go back there when you put it back together because I forgot to do it when I last put it together this time I should remember correctly I sure hope I was out to take it back part so don’t let me forget now let’s see how to organize the rest of this and here we go I try to keep it all organized all nice neat whatever now the dreadful part about this just be really careful I mean I can’t emphasize that enough because you know it’s easy because this is whoever designed this model Dell the what is it I want to try to recall 2/10 at 1:04 can’t emphasize that enough idiot designer he’ll eat to swap a hard drive you have to make it this complicated sir that’s that’s retarded as hell I can’t emphasize that enough okay so anyway we got 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 screws we have to take out of this portion of beat board so let’s set those aside in a place that we won’t forget them these are all the same sizes I recalled only one that’s different is this one up here that is a ground for this LCD screen but really I think that stays with the little thing that it comes with so you really won’t you you have I keep track of that one because it’s going to stay all together you right this these screws right here maybe a little different maybe not completely certain about that one but hey all these get removed because you cannot you have to take this heatsink out here because otherwise it holds the board and a like overlaps the board so to remove the board you have to remove that not heatsink the the cooling fan and it helps keep the board in place I suppose but really still I should not have to remove the motherboard just to replace a hard drive it should be no ok here we go again remove the the cooling fan set that off to the side to forget about it for the moment um I don’t think anything else is holding this board in place so

[WPXperVideo id=15 ]hello everybody this is Abraham with no shirt Computer Services and today I’d like to show you a hard drive that I think has heads stock on a platter the reason I know that is from the noise that it makes if we plug it in you can hear the beeping noise that’s basically the motor is trying to start the platters and it can’t and it’s most likely because the heads are stuck on a platter it does happen occasionally I have seen it it could also be that the bearing is stuck or seized and platters are not turning you’d get the same noise so for this one we would need to open this hard drive now this hard drive does not have much of anything that’s important on it so we don’t have to use any cleanroom or anything and I’m sure it’s going to work once we get the heads unstuck so we’ll just take the screws out there’s one more screw hidden somewhere beneath the label just kind of feel it and get under it okay um skips here pry it open alright so as we can see the heads are stuck on a platter I’m not sure why this would happen but I have seen this happen several times so how do we get the heads off the platter and into the park position okay the best thing to do is turn the platter so let’s see we can use our trusty screwdriver and it’s not going to like it Bubba all right so the heads are off most likely this hard drive will start and it will most likely work there is some dust particles on drive on the platters I’m not too concerned about those because once the hard drive starts spinning it’ll centrifugal force will get rid of those particles and before the head actually starts moving on to the hard drive now heads do seem to be stuck on a hard drive as if they’re glued reason for that is because the head surface is polished extremely smooth hard drive surface is polished extremely smooth it’s we have two surfaces that are very smooth they get stuck on each other all right check on our computer we’ll plug in our adapter SATA to USB and as you can see the hard drive is mounting I don’t hear the beeping noises there it is scanning we’ll just cancel that folder yeah there you go the hard drive is working okay do not be afraid to open a hard drive if it’s if it’s not critical I’d say if if you have a million dollar business that’s on a hard drive and it’s probably best to leave it to people who can give you some kind of insurance I’ve done this so many times it seems to be working just fine but if you only have personal stuff and if it’s while you’re opening it or while you’re moving the heads off the platter you accidentally damage them you’re not going to hit your head over with whatever and say why did I do this you probably want to take it to a lab but if you have a hard drive that’s making that noise you haven’t used it for god knows how long and it’s just something on there that you might want to use I’ll go ahead and open it you’re not going to damage it I’ve seen some people on YouTube saying that you have to have these screws to specific torque I think it’s baloney as long as you get them tight the hard drive will work so as you can see the hard drive is working in fact I can put it back into a computer and it’ll work just fine I do not trust open hard drives if I have opened it I would never use it as a primary hard drive I could use it as a backup hard drive basically if it if it contains a second copy of something that I have I’m okay you know I can use this hard drive but overall maybe for test purposes the hard drive is okay maybe for playing purposes but never ever as a primary hard drive that runs your computer so once you open the hard drive be sure it will not work the same as it did when it was assembled at the factory or you know brand new hard drive so I hope this was informative and helpful and as always have a good day
