Satellite C70D-B-30D: How to access back panel after ~16 screws removed

Question: Satellite C70D-B-30D: How to access back panel after ~16 screws removed

Would be grateful for any advice to remove the back panel.

I've removed battery, ~16 screws + 1 tiny screw at the optical drive and whilst it does 'unclick' everywhere else, there seems to be something stopping the panel being removed just above the battery compartment and don't want to force it.

Even our IT guys at work cannot work it out.

PLEASE HELP.....my new laptop is very slow so have purchased RAM but can't access the back.

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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Satellite C70D-B-30D: How to access back panel after ~16 screws removed

At first I must say that you should not remove bottom cover alone because it will cancel valid warranty. If there is no RAM cover, RAM should be exchanged or upgraded by authorized personal only.

I know every of us think it is easy to do and want to do this alone.
What I know is follow:
2 screws in the middle are fixing the keyboard. What must be removed are 14 screws and small flat screw at the optical drive. That’s all. There is no other hidden screw.

Of course there are also small plastic holders and bottom cover must be removed very gently.

Question: Back panel screws

Is there a way to get a new set of back panel screws. My maid service sucked them up. That's what I get for not putting them back in after my upgrade. Willing to pay whatever. Thanks!

hellohow do i get replacement screws which have fallen out of the back of the laptop after a few weeks (and lost). Bought online at HP store and cant seen to get through to HPthanks

Answer:fixing screws fallen out of back panel and lost

Of course we need the model number to get you the correct screw kit. The screw kit is usually a replacement part listed in the Manual or you can find them from 3rd party sellers online. Just buy a packet of all the screws in the system and then you will have replacements. Almost impossible to find the exactly correct individual screws.

Good evening,

I'm sorry to disturb,
but I find myself in a situation to which I find no solution,
that's why I come here asking for some help.

A friend has just purchased the following laptop:
- Satellite C70D-B-307

but the worry is that apparently it is impossible to have access to the HDD recovery to execute the factory restoration.
I try all possible solutions that I find on the web and none of it works.

what to do ?

does Toshiba sell the recovery DVDs that will restore the computer to its factory state?

Thank you very much .

I have a C70D-A-107 and want to speed up this notebook. Already placed 4gb extra memory so the notebook has now 8gb internal. I doubt whether it is usefull to put in 2x8gb. I think the processor is just to slow. It has a AMD E1-2100 inside. Is it possible to put in another (faster) processor?

Answer:Speed-up Satellite C70D-A-107

The Satellite C70D-A-107 was equipped with an AMD Essentials E1-2100 Accelerated CPU (1,00 GHz, 1 MB L2 Cache)
It’s not the fastest CPU therefore the notebook performance isn’t the best…

But CPU upgrade isn’t officially supported by notebook manufacturer... therefore I don’t think that you will be able to upgrade the CPU…

I read about successful Intel CPU upgrades but did not meet anyone who was able to perform an upgrade with an AMD CPU

Greetings

Marco

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-108 is very slow

Hi Marco

I don't have this notebook model and cannot confirm what you wrote but fact is that almost all new notebooks are pretty slow at the beginning. Many applications are set to start with Windows and this, of course, slows down boot time.
Windows updates are also set to automatic so in the background the machine will download and install many updates so this will slow down your machine rapidly.

In my opinion you should install original OS that you got with this machine and optimize it a bit.
Remove all useless stuff, change start-up option and disable automatic Windows updates.
In the past I have noticed that original preinstalled antivirus is also responsible for notebook?s performance so I don't use original preinstalled application but my own version of Avir Antivir and it runs perfectly.

Check all these options and I hope your machine will run much better than before.

Hi

The Satellite C70D-A-11K was equipped with the 17.3" LED color LCD panel with the supporting max resolution of 1600 x 900 px
You should be able to order such display panel from local Toshiba authorized service provider or you could check some 3rd part online dealers who provide compatible notebook parts…

As I mention above: you should look for the 17.3" panels.

Hello,
Just bought a Satellite C70D with Win 8.1. Everything works (as far as I know until know), except boot from DVD. I disabled in the bios the Secure Boot and changed the boot order to DVD first, then USB and then HDD. The DVD drive starts, but then it skips to the HDD and Windows is started. First time I tried there was a message like "DVD boot not supported" or something like that.
The DVD is bootable, so that is not the problem.
I would like to install Linux Mint alongside Windows.
Anyone solved this problem already?

Answer:Satellite C70D - How to boot from DVD

I thank you in advance for your answer.

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-317 - Ram upgrade

1. yes you can upgrade your RAM, This laptop has 2 slots with one 4GB standard so if you would you can put one more 4GB. With 2x4 you have Dual-channel and that works much faster than single

I don't know if your HDD can e upgraded. When it's not possible you can always buy a external HDD

I have a Satellite C70D-A-114...

i hardly used it because it was slow

so i wanted to sell it

first i wanted to set it back to factory settings

doing that, in that process i seem to have deleted all files

so now i get message no bootable disc etc.

Tried everything, there is simply no recovery file

So where can i find such a file for free? It's just not normal that it is not on the site.

Answer:Need recovery files for my Satellite C70D-A-114

All you can find for free are all drivers, tools and utilities. Original recovery image (software package) is not for free and if you need it you must order recovery disc directly by Toshiba.

You can order it on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

By the way: in user’s manuals document is clearly described how you can create recovery installation disc. I’m wondering you didn’t make it in the past.

Hello,

I picked up a brand new c70d-b-10u today from a well known retailer.
I turned it on, set the language, gave a computer name, hooked up to a wi fi and then it asked for Other User Password!

I never entered a password to start with so why is it asking for one?

I cannot get to the shop again until next week and urgently need to get up and running.

Any ideas greatly received.

Answer:Brand new Satellite C70D-B-10U wants a password?

Try to recover the notebook once again using the HDD recovery option.
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD1303440001R02.htm

The recovery procedure would reset the notebook back to factory settings… usually after that no passwords should be set…

My question is in the subject line. If anyone has done this I would appreciate some tips.

Answer:Can I replace the HDD in my Satellite C70D-B -00P model with an SSD?

Generally speaking yes, you can do this but problem is that your notebook model doesn't have HDD cover at the bottom side.
To have full access to the HDD the bottom cover must be removed completely but it should be done by authorized service only.

Of course you can try to do it alone but I?m afraid you may lose the warranty.
If possible contact nearest Toshiba service provider in your country, explain the situation and ask for help.

So I bought this laptop a few months ago.
For the past few weeks the Laptop stopped playing sound.
I watched a stream in Chrome.

So actually I should be able to see the sound playing in the mixer.
But I wasn't able to play any sound or get any deflection in the mixer.

Then I installed Speccy and as this administration window popped up a sound was played and it worked.

I have no idea why the sound stopped working and why it started again.
Is someone able to help me?

I am using Windows 8.1

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-11D - no sound, random

The main thing is that you have sound again. It is not easy to say what was wrong there.

Hi All,

I have an Satellite C70D-A-11D ... when I use once the FN Key to do a Print Screen or use the Screen-Zoom on the Space Key...

I am not able to use the Keynumbers 1 to 4 neither the space Key to enter a space between two words...it always change between the bigger screen solution or the normal solution...

I only can change the FN Key again after change the settings in Display settings and after a reboot...
So I cant use FN without a reset with the F1 to F12 Key use and a reboot...

Normaly the FN Key works only if it is pressed...if not the normal Function of the Keys 1 to 4 or F1 to F12 will work if configured in the settings, or not?

What to do?

Kind regards
J?rgen

Answer:Satellite C70D-A-11D Function Key deactivate after use

First of all you can change between the special function key mode (without pressing FN key) or normal (standard) mode (Hold Fn first to use standard F1-F12 functions.)

This function can be changed in BIOS.
In BIOS go to Advanced -> System configuration

Check this option.

Hi There,

I have had a Satellite C70D for about 18 months now, but have not used it in the past year as I have been disputing with customer services about the windows licence for the machine as I lost it when I formatted the original hard drive before installing an SSD and they wouldnt send me a copy of it. I have now bitten the bullet and bought a windows 10 licence again. However since building the machine a few days ago, I have been having a couple of issues and as it is now out of warranty, I cannot contact customer support (Who I found unhelpful even when it was in warranty!)

The first issue is when I boot up the machine, occasionally the keyboard will not work, I cannot type the BitLocker pin and I have to remove the battery and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, this then fixes the issue for a few reboots before it goes again.

The second is that occasionally it will boot up with a red x next to the WiFi symbol, but it detects the WiFi card, usually a reboot fixes this but not always. I have reseated the card and still no avail.

Can anyone shed any light on what may be causing this? The BIOS is up-to-date as are all of the drivers.

Thanks in advance for your help

I have 2 issues with my new Satellite C70D-B-32U.
When I put it in sleep mode, it does. But after about 5 minutes, it goes automatically to hibernate. This I don't want. And I don't want to disable hibernate, because I do use it when the laptop is not in use for longer periods. The power settings in control panel do not reflect this behaviour. In the settings, I specified that the laptop should never go to hibernate. Hybrid state is disabled.

And secondly, more importantly. Whenever it goes to hibernate, I can only wake it up with the power button. Not with the (internal) keyboard, not with the usb mouse. I would like an option to wake it from hibernate by pressing any key on the keyboard. In bios power on keyboard is set to on. Is there anything else I can change to have this available?
Actually if issue 1 is solved and the laptop stays in sleep mode, this issue is also solved since from sleep I can wake on a mouseclick which is also fine.

The OS is windows 8.1

Answer:Bad Speakers on Satellite C70D-B-10UM

I think your notebook has only small stereo speakers and the sound is not the best. I have Satellite S50-B with Harman/kardon speakers and sound is really good.

You can try to change sound options but if you want to have better sound I’m afraid you need external speakers, Maybe BT speakers.

Hi, My mom opened up her x240 and removed all 8 screws from the back in order to replace the M.2 SSD. Now she realizes that the screws weren't meant to be removed and the problem is that there are 4 different types of screws used. I am in California and she is in Maryland so I can't be of much help here. Can someone tell me which screws go in which holes? Using this count (and assuming screw 6 is above the fan), can someone please help? Also, some of the screws are held in using a plastic piece (this is what drove my mother so crazy, she thought she had to remove the screws). Which ones had the plastic pieces holding the screw in? 1      62  4  73  5  8 Thanks!Nachum

Answer:x240 - removed base cover and screws! which of 8 go where?

The X240's I have disassembled had plastic covers on all the screws. None of them are meant to be removed.You should always consult the HMM before doing anything to your machine: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/x240_hmm_en_sp40a26001.pdfHowever, the HMM does not state the different screw lengths. (obvious, they are supposed to be non-removable) I don't have any X240 present to check so you will need to ask your mother to try to remember which screws were located where in the chassis. Please do not use the "trial and error method", using a screw that is too long can cause damage to the unit.Next time, apart from consulting the HMM, the screws should be sorted so you know where they came from and where to screw them back in.

To be honest I’ve never heard about such touchpad behaviour.
Have you tested all touchpad settings?

Answer:ODD on my Satellite C70D-A-11E wont read DVDs anymore

Hi

If optical disc drive is installed properly maybe is reading lens dirty. Try to clean it up.

Other way, if your ODD can read CDs but not DVDs it can also be hardware malfunction. The reading lens cannot be calibrated properly and cannot find the right position to read DVD media.

In such case ODD must be exchanged.

Try to clean lens up and check if the problem persists. If yes contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.

Hi,

I have a toshiba C70D-B-306 (psclee) laptop and I reinstalled windows 8.1 from a seperate DVD because i exchange the default harddrive for a fast ssd disk.

Everything works but in my device manager I have 2 unknown devices listed (with exclamation mark), as far as I know I downloaded all available drivers from toshiba support website for this laptop and installed them but the 2 unknown devices simply will not disappear.

Can someone tell me which driver I exactly need for these 2 devices?

The 2 devices are:
ACPI\ASD0001\2&DABA3FF&1
and
ACPI\SMB0001\4&FE73487&0

As mentioned, i allready downloaded all drivers for this laptop and installed them, windows is ofcourse up-to-date. Also I let windows search for drivers on the Internet and on the whole drive, but no drivers where found.

Who can give me the golden tip?

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-306 - 2 unknown devices in device list

There is a good method in order to find out what drivers are missing.
First of all you should check the DEV (device) and VEN (vendor) IDs

Here is an short instruction how to find this details:
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/HTD0302U00000R01.htm

Knowing the device and vendor ID, it should not be a big deal to get the right drivers.

At the other hand you should install also additional Toshiba software (Toshiba System Driver) released for Win 8.1
Please note also that there are two Win 8.1 driver areas: ?Win 8.1 update? and ?Win 8.1 32bit/64bit? categories
In case you would not find all drivers within the Win 8.1 update check also the Win 8.1 32bit/64bit categories.

Hi all,

excuse the new thread but I haven't found any answers anywhere online, just speculation and it's for different models.

So I have a C70D-B-10U, running windows 7 64bit pro. When I formatted it and updated everything, it just kept crashing when trying to play back videos on Windows Media Player. I cleaned the inside and replaced thermal paste, updated to even newer drivers, and started using VLC as my default media player. It rarely crashed BUT it always does when I try to start playing games (nothing heavy - League of Legends). Laptop seems to be doing well with memory tests, no faults detected.

I've read that this could be caused by:
Faulty GPUFaulty BatteryFaulty PSUBad Capacitors on the MOBO

Has anyone had any similar experience? I've reinstalled Windows and it's the same story. If it's a motherboard issue, I guess it would be better to just get a new one?

Thanks

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-10U no warning crash (power, GPU or capacitors)

Update: I decided to test the RAM and it seems like it can't handle 8GB. Both 4GB sticks work on any slot, but when I have all of it on the machine it crashes. Do you think it is a motherboard issue?

Hi there,

I was bought the above model of laptop for an early Christmas present which usually sits down in the living room, my old Satellite Pro sat down there with no issues however with this device the wireless signal is very low and I appear to be having it sitting right next to the wireless router (which is located upstairs in my sons bedroom), I wondered if there's any steps I could take to improve the signal?

It baffles me how a new system has such a poor wireless signal when my old Satellite Pro which was 6 years old had no wireless issues whatsoever.

My other issue is from the moment I switched the laptop on (yesterday when it was delivered) the updates on Windows Update are slow or don't start at all, is this an issue or just normal?

I'd appreciate any help or input at all, thank you.

Hello,

I have buy a Satellite C70D-A-11T and pass it on Windows 7 64 bits Home Premium.
I install all the drivers and I haven't any problems.

When I want to connect it to my TV for first time, I discover there is no sound on the TV.
I try to go on the speaker (near the clock of windows), right click, sound, first tab (I think it is "Playback" in english... I have a french Windows) and my device (TV) doesn't appear.

I come back on Toshiba Support website to download the last driver "HDMI Audio driver" for my laptop, I connect the cable, and it appear in the sound properties. I select it as my default device and the sound come right from my TV.

Great !

But when I restart my laptop (with or without the HDMI cable), the TV disappear from the list in the sound properties, the only one solution to recover the sound is to reinstall the HDMI Audio Driver.
If I start the driver installation with the "advanced" option, I have the list of drivers to install and I see all drivers are already installed, but the HDMI Audio Driver will be upgraded... I install it and it work until the next restart.

Could you explain me why the version of the driver don't stay on the system, and how to make it work without reinstall it everyday ?

Thanks a lot for your help.

The notebook supports the AMD Radeon HD 8400 graphics which is part of AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 CPU.
Such GPU is similar to Intel HD GPU which is also part of Intel CPUs.

Such internal graphic cards are not really designed for gaming? of course you would be able to run and to play a game but don?t expect too much?

I bought this laptop used in December. It seems to be in outstanding cosmetic condition and working condition. I replaced the hard disk drive with a much larger one. I bought 8 GB of RAM, to replace the 4 GB it has now.  When I went to loosed the Captive Screw on the Access Panel, I had no luck. Possibly/Probably when I began trying, the head was already stripped.  My wife (she's very mechanical) also tried this. We  both agree that the head is stripped and the Captive Screw is not moving.  This is an issue I'd never run into before (we have 6 Dell laptops and a Dell Micro Tower in the house).  I am going to pray that someone here (Customer or Dell Employee) can tell me what we need to do to get the Access Panel off the laptop. Thank  you in advance, for your time and your help, which we greatly appreciate!

Answer:Latitude E6410 - Captive Screw on Access Panel - head is stripped - how to remove Access Panel?

Try the rubber band trick first - use a screwdriver with a large handle on it and wedge a wide rubber band between the tip of the driver and the screw head.  That may give you enough leverage to remove the screw.  If it does, be sure to discard the screw and replace it with a new one - do NOT re-use it.

I've only noticed today that when I turn up my laptop's volume up to about 28 (even with headphones in), there's this high pitch noise that comes from the speakers. And I'm sure it's the speakers and not anything else.
But the sound is sort of that real ear-killing noise so I can't listen to it for long. It even sometimes sounds like thousands of crickets - a complete nightmare

But with my volume at any level below 28 I can listen to whatever through headphones without the sound bothering me.

Does anyone have any ideas for a solution? I do know a thing or two about computers but nothing about anything extremely technical and I'm not sure if I want to take it apart, unless I really have to.

If you could help me it would be appreciated!

This possibly should go in the hardware forum since it involves the motherboard as well but being a sound issue I assume here would be better.
I have an Asus Xonar DG sound card on an Asus P7P55D-E LX motherboard (and AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series video card) running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
I asked ASUS tech if I can use both the front panel & back panel at the same time for use of my headset (headphones and mic therefore headphone jack and mic jack.) They said NO that I had to choose one or the other, not both, and, that this has nothing to do with the sound card or MB but rather is a Windows thing. I assume this info is correct. Is it? If not please advise me as how to be able to use both.
On the assumption that it is correct, that I must make a choice an idea popped up.
My speakers are 'Cyber Acoustics CA-5402'. They have a control pod whereby on this control pod I could add my headphones whereby all speaker sounds are cut off automatically. Unfortunately this control pod which also controls the volume of the speakers no longer has control of the volume when the headphones are on and therefore volume must be controlled via Windows.
My idea. Can the Xonar, or rather Windows along with it, be set up so as to use only the front panel for the mic but NOT for the headphones?
OR
Since the control pod also has and 'aux in' (unfortunately not 'aux out') maybe this could be hacked somehow.

Answer:Using both front panel audio and back panel: solutions

Whether you can use both, depends on the sound card software, not Windows. You should be able to use the front for mic and the GREEN speaker jack on the back for the headphones. However, why would you want to do that? If you plug the headphones into the rear speaker jack, you have to unplug the speakers from the PC to do this.

Normal operation is to use the front panel for the headphones (and mic) and when you plug in the headphones it mutes the output to the speakers. On some sound card control software (for example RealTek) there are options to either mute the speakers when the headset is connected or not mute the speakers and have both headset and speaker sound.

You have to use the designated Mic input, as a PC mic requires 5VDC for operation. Other than the mic input, others do not have 5VDC.

On the front panel connections. Your front panel audio connection must be to the ASUS Xonar and not to the motherboard sound connection. Since you have a separate sound card, your motherboard sound should be disabled in the BIOS so it does not conflict with the Xonar. In addition, you can only have one default audio playback device (e.g. Xonar OR motherboard sound but not both).

 On the bottom of the laptop I removed most of the screws including the screws that allow you to remove the keyboard and most of the other screws too on the bottom. Why you may ask, no reason, just did it. I never had this problem ever until removed the screws and putting them back. The computer only shuts down when the power cord is plugged in. Running off of the battery only I never have this problem. Please note I have verified the following:The computer only shuts down at random times only when the Power Cord is plugged into the computer and this never happened before until I removed the screws and put them back in.I have tested with more than one thinkpad power cord to make sureTested with battery in the computer and removed from computer My thought is maybe I missed putting in a screw on the bottom or maybe there is a ground screw I did not put in. Could my machine have an issue with not being grounded? I am not an electrician but who knows. Could there be something in the motherboard that a screw is missing in therer and not allowing grounding or other? thanks

Answer:Computer Shuts Down After Removing All Screws and Putting Them Back

More likely you put in a long screw where a short screw belonged and it pushed through and shorted something out. It is very difficult to tell without knowing more about what happened.

The schools have purchased a large number of Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-12P Laptops over the last 12/18 months from various suppliers. It has been brought to my attention that a large number of laptops are missing screwsfrom the bottom of the case.

As there are so many missing and loose I thoughthat one of the children may be doing it. I have however started to see thesame thing happening at other schools with both student and teacher?s laptops.

I estimate that we have over 50 laptops and all have at least one screwmissing, most have a lot more. I have started to see laptops with over 10 screwsmissing and the case starting to come apart. As I am seeing so many this canonly be due to a manufacturing issue.

Is it possible we can be supplied with alarge number (100+) screws so the missing ones can be replaced.

Hello,

I recently purchased (4 weeks ago) a P50W and found one screw had fallen out and some of the other screws on the bottom of the device have become loose, has anyone else found they had this issue?

I just tightened them for now, but I'm intrigued to see if this is normal as I take my device to work and back each day and use it throughout the home bed/office and lounge.

I think you are the first one who reported about such issue. I hope some other P50W owners will post own experiences with this notebook model.

Anyway, if you will notice some similar or any other issues I recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba service and ask for help or opinion. I hope they can help you with this and even give you missing screw.

Usually if the screws are fixed properly there should not be any problem in the future. I had several notebooks in last 15 years and I?ve never noticed something like this.

I first noticed this when the casing started parting around the hinges.

The screws in the back case automatically untighten themselves in ordinary operations. I saved some of them by retightening them and putting a piece of tape over the hole, so the screws don't get lost. However, I do believe that it is an error in construction and this auto-untightening should not happen.

It does multiple screws so far and my laptop is missing 6 screws so far, with others retightening or saved by tape.

Just noticed that the replacement Click Mini I recieved from Amazon has stripped screws on the keyboard dock. I did wonder why there were two Toshiba seals, looks like it's been opened at the factory (possibly related to the battery issues with this model) and they have used the wrong size screwdriver. Can anyone from Toshiba confirm my unit will still be covered by warranty? Otherwise it will be going back to Amazon... again....

Answer:Stripped screws - Toshiba Satellite Click Mini L9W-B

Problem is that nobody from Toshiba will confirm anything. It is user to user forum only.
If you got non original boxed device and discovered that something may be modifies my advice is to send the machine back.

Buy original boxed products only.

Sorry but that’s all I can say about that.

Working on an unrelated problem, I noticed that last year, my trusty PC tech mounted a new SSD using a screw on the left _and_ right side of the drive bay.
If I need to remove this drive later on, how on Earth do I access the screws on the right side? Thanks.

Answer:XPS 9100: how to access right-side drive bay mounting screws?

You don't  for the upper bays they are shoulder screws.  You remove the bezel then press slider down and slide the drive out.  For the drive cage it also has slots for shoulder screws.

Answer:FAX program has been removed from Control Panel

Using FaxFax provides you with complete fax facilities from your computer. You can configure fax settings, send and receive faxes, track and monitor fax activity, and access archived faxes. Using Fax, you can choose to send and receive faxes with a local fax device attached to your computer, or with a remote fax device connected to fax resources located on a network.

Fax is not installed by default during Windows Setup.

To install the Fax component
Open Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.
Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
In the Windows Components Wizard, select the Fax Services check box, and then follow the instructions on your screen.
Notes

To open Fax after installation, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to Communications, and then click Fax Console.
For more information on using Fax, click Help in Fax Console.

Hi,

The underside of my P870 has lost some screws which fasten it so the laptop lid now opens with a bit of a crunch.

Can you please tell me what size these screws are so I can order some? Are they, for example, M2.5 x 2.5mm?
I've looked for this information and can't find it.
Thanks for your help.
Graeme

Answer:Satellite P870 - underside screws - what is their size/part number?

Hi

I found info that on bottom side of your P870 are placed follow screws:
-Eleven M2.5x6 black flat head screws
-Two M2.x3 black flat head screws.

This two M2.x3 black flat head screws you will see when you remove optical disc drive.
Unfortunately the part number is not known to me.

To be honest I cannot understand how some screws from the bottom side can be lost. Have you disassembled your machine in the past?

Hello,
I am having a number of problems with my computer. First the control panel has been removed and when I try and make certain actions it says: This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.

Also, my desktop picture has been removed. Now it only shows a blue screen and I cannot change this.

And finally, I was trying to fix the above problem. I have Windows XP, but now it looks like I am running Windows 95 or something.

Any help with these problems would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I was having a problem with a number of viruses and a worm which I think I fixed with the help of Combofix, SmitfraudFix and super anti spyware. Unfortunately I'm still not able to access the control panel and update the time due to a access restriction pop up. I have scanned the computer with Avast! and there are not any viruses found at this time. I can still access the control panel from the main user account but not from the account which acquired the virus. Here is my HiJack this log and Mwav log. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
