If you are talking about the shock sensor warning it is a hard drive protection that retracts the heads when the laptop is bumped and that will reset.

    The usb thumbdrive has a small lock/unlock switch on the side. One of mine broke and will not unlock so I had to just buy another one.

    Yes, there is a tiny switch on the side of two of the flash drives that I have, one has an icon of a lock showing it open in one position and closed in the other. It is tiny but I am not sure which one you have so I can't stake my word on it but if yours says it is locked or write-protected and does not have a switch I would suggest that you 'make a wish' with it at the local wishing well :) your friend, Steve Medley

    Please restate your problem. The hard drive protection is only temporary after a shock sensor detects a bump or drop. That program can be uninstalled but is not a good idea. What error messages or problems are you now experiencing?

How do I connect my Nexbook 8 to the internet on my laptop

You connect your Nextbook to YOUR WiFI HOME NETWORK (not the Internet) FROM THE NEXTBOOK, not from the laptop. On your Nextbook, go to Settings then Wi-Fi. If your Nextbook is already connected to your WiFi home network you will see the network's name there and you are done. If it is not connected, a list of available WiFi networks appears. Tap on the name of your home network and it will connect to it. If your network is password-protected, you will be asked to enter it.

How/where do I insert the SIM card? Thanks in advance

It is on the right hand side of the laptop above the dvd drive. There will most likely be a blank piece of plastic that protects the opening, if you press on this blank it will release and can be pulled out of the way, this blank and the memory card only fit one way and when you put the card in, it will click in place and lock, to unlock simply push in on the card and will unlock and can be pulled out. Below is the service manual, look on page 249, chapter 4.3.2

Dismantelling Averatec 3500 series tablet PC

I have this same laptop. It is pretty simple to tear apart. Is there any specific areas you wish to access or did you want to just take it completely apart? If you are going ofr the keyboard ribbon or the touchpad ribbon, just undo the two screws out that are located behind the pivot point of the screen, then open the laptop and remove the small plate. This reveals access to two more screws (2 silver, 2 black). Remove the silver ones not the black ones. The black screws remove the lower shell assembly. Once the silver screws are removed the accessory bezel can be removed. ( the one with the power button and lights)

There are yet two more screws that lock down the keyboard. Remove them and pivot the keyboard toward the touchpad. You can now safely remove the keyboard.

Click on hp laptop dv6000

Could be a bad driver or a damaged palmrest.
Try to reinstall the touchpad driver.
Go here and click 'synaptics touchpad'. Go through the process and restart when prompted.
If it still doesn't work, it could be a damaged palmrest. Call HP at 800-474-6836 to see if your warranty covers the replacement. Otherwise, they can further diagnose the issue and refer you to service centers for parts replacement.

Display crack

Honestly it may cost less just buying a new laptop. Screens can cost more than a new laptop =[

You can use an external monitor if you do not plan on moving the laptop around too much.
