SOURCE: compaq presario 1200

there are plastic covers over the hinges, which may be part of the faceplate. being a compaq the hinge screws are most likely torx head screws. compaq used to make a special tool for removing the plastic covers on their laptops. the tool was a bar with a piece of fiberglas circuit board embedded in it. you insert the circuit board into the groove between the top and bottom covers and twist. this is, of course after removing all of the cover screws. some of the cover screws on the display may be hidden under rubber bumpers.

Dear Windwalker,
Not too many screens are interchangeable, be CAREFULL ! if you are good with your hands and are willing to take it apart, the best thing to do is first rmove the battery, press and hold the start button for 1 minute,,,, this discharges the electricity stored by the capacitors in the comp. as your looking at the screen,you'll see the rubber cushions on the bezel,,,, the trim you could say around the screen,remove them and you should see small screws,FYI you may want to buy a small screw driver set if you don't have one, remove the screws.then you remove the bezel this might be tricky as the bezel is clipped around the outer sides so be CAREFULL, you may even need a butter knife to do this,but BE CAREFULL!.once you've don that you can access the screen screws. You may even want to take pictures as your going along so if you get confused when you put it back together it wont be so bad. Once you've got the screen out ,now you can get all the information on the back and do a check on a new screen. FYI if you see any liquid oozing out you must not be in contact with that, it is hazardous to health if consumed so BE CAREFULL! also shard glass is a hazard, it is manufactured micro thin so once again BE....... ok i guess you've heard it enough! if you cant find a supplier for the screen, leave a message here and i can check with my suppliers. but get all the numbers you can find on it as some suppliers will need most of them. Good luck! JLS

My passenger side tie rod is loose and able to twist back n forth but doesn't come undone from the relay rod. Can this cause power steering to become stiff?

It is not likely if car has power steering the fluid may be low or if you have electric power steering it may of gone out it has happened a lot. Tie rods just fall off and your wheel will flop to left or right. If it is loose that will need to be addressed too. Good luck

Car wont idel and revs some times for no apparent reason its a hyundai xl 1995 duz it sound like the iac valve

If it has a carberator check to make sure that the throttle linkage is in a relaxed position when the car should be idoling in other words if the linkage is too tight then while your gas pedal may not be pressed the linkage is so tight that it is still pully on the throttle linkage and causing it to rev. The only reason i can think of it revving on its own though is maybe a tension spring on this linkage is broken and the linkage is loose and flopping back and forth from idel to throttle with bumps and other distrubances.
