HD-bracket for Probook 470 G4

Q: HD-bracket for Probook 470 G4

I am about to order a probook 470 G4 with 256GB SSD. I want to add the harddisk from my old laptop that recently died to add some diskspace in case I need it (I have the disk anyhow). Looking at the service manuals for the G3 and G4 versions of the Probook 470 I see 2 different numbers for the brackets:In the G3 manual I see 828147-001, in the G4 manual it says 906002-001. The part numbers for the hardisks are however the same for both revisions of the 470. That suggests that this is the same or similar part. I cannot find the number mentioned for the G4 online (except in Eastern Europe). the G3 version is however available here in the Netherlands. can somebody explain the difference? Will the 828147-001 fit in the G4?

Hello people, I have bought a HP ProBook 470 G3 and I am trying to insert a second hard disk into the notebook. The first drive is a SSD M2. I found out that there is no bracket inside the notebook, so I cannot secure the hard disk. I have found the HP 828147-001 HDD Hardware Kit, but then I get two different brackets. One with three screws and one with four screws. I need the one with four screws. I hope one of you can help me to find the right one what will fit in my notebook. BrokenWing PS: I am located in The Netherlands.

Can someone assist me in finding out which option is best?

Should I use this Amazon.com: Monoprice 107637 1 Port Internal SATA to eSATA Bracket (107637): Computers & Accessories

or something like this: PCI Express SATA III Card - PCIe SATA 6Gbps | StarTech.com

Will the latter perform as fast as the former? (Or will the former even work given the lengths of the cables I have to use?)

Also, I'm getting really confused when it comes to the maximum length of the sata to esata. The esata bracket comes with a 20 inch cable... and the esata cable that comes with my external drive is about 20 inches. That makes an even 40 inches. I know the maximum sata length is 40 inches... and I don't want this 40 inch chain causing corruption.....

What should I do?

P4 processor sockets have a plastic, rectangular bracket around them that the heat-sink and fan attach to. What do you call that bracket?

I need to buy some and I can't even search for it because I don't even know what to call it.
 

A:What's the name of this bracket?

I have one on my motherboard. But it's socket 754 but I guess it's the same thing.

"Push down the retention bracket lock on the retention mechanism to secure the heat-sink and fan to module base."

Hello all,

I am having a problem finding a heatsink fan bracket/retention bracket.
My description of this is a black plastic square that surrounds the CPU and is what the bracket's clip to hold down the Heatsink to the motherboard.
Motherboard is a Dublin, which is a micro ATX, 478 Socket, P-4 1.6ghz.

I have an emachine T4160, after speaking with the salesman at emachine they told me that I would have to purchase a new mobo for this item. $149.00 later and a few day's for delivery I got the mobo, opened it, and poof this item was not attached to the mobo. I called there tech support for this back and they said it does not ship with the mobo. Well here is the delimma, it does not ship with the heatsink fan either. Matter of fact they do not even carry this item at all. So as of now my whole pc is shot due to a $10 piece of plastic.

I don't mind spending money on a new heatsink if need be or whatever but I do need to know if this item is possible to get. The PC has been very good to me and don't want to loose it, can someone help me on locating where I may get this item because Emachine seem's like they would rather we purchase a new pc than pay $10 buck's for a piece of plastic.

Thanks for any help
Bobby

I got a SLK900U with a 92mm Tornado for my Epox 8RGA+ (and earplugs). One of the holes in the X-bracket is too large to hold the standoff. I looked at it under magnification and it appears it was just made with a tap that was too large.

I was wondering if anyone else got a bad X-bracket from them.

A word of advice to anyone who does RMA the unit immediately and dont mess with Thermalright. Support will tell you they cant help and pawn you off to sales. And sales will just ignore you until you get really aggressive. It has been a week and as far as Ive gotten is a message from sales that they will not use any type of expedited shipping when they finally get around to shipping it it hasnt been shipped.

They do seem to be aware of the problem but havent set up any reasonable customer help.

I was looking online for a 2.5 inch bracket for my SSD. I found this "Dual Bracket"
Newegg.com - BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure Are you able to put two drives in the one bracket and thus double your space? I have never heard of these.

From what i can tell looking at the pictures it seems like it should work with one or two SSD's. Some of the user comments seem to say it works with one SSD ok. The good news - it has free shipping. Very often on cheap items the shipping costs more than the item. And it comes with a free 18" SATA cable if you need one.

SUBJECT: I need a better bracket for securing my new heatsink.

I just received a new heatsink in the mail.

Description of new heatsink:

Thermaltake heatsink.
model: Tower112 Heatpipe cooling CL-P0024.
This is a heavy chunk of copper.

Description of motherboard:
ABIT model VI7.
CPU Intel pentiun 4.

After opening the box containing the heatsink,
I realizied, "this is one heavy chunk of copper".
After looking through the manual which came with the unit.
I thought, maybe, the bracket/base plate
that comes with the heatsink may not be strong enough
to hold it up (In the ATX confitguation).
... Being supendid above my PCI cards and PCI devices ...

Question: Do you know of a company
that makes a more heavy-duty bracket/base plate?
The bracket which comes with the heatsink is rather weak.
I don't trust it.

Thank You.

Awaiting your response.

My mounting bracket is here:

The center of it seems to be glued to the Mobo as it is almost impossible to remove. My question is, is there any way to get it off without damaging the motherboard, or do I need to buy a new one?
 

A:Mounting Bracket is stuck

Try to get a screwdriver (non magnetic) with a straight bit to pry it off. Or try a floor tack remover if you have one. Just use something thin to put under it and pry it up. I don't know if that would damage your motherboard but I highly doubt it.

It probably means the ram that you have in it, however i am not to good with msi so you shoudl check your mobo manual. Try taking out the ram and putting it back in. See if you get any wierd beeps. Make sure your ram has the right frequencies and speed.
If you overclocked it undo it, if possible test the ram on another system. Double check your jumper settings to see that you havent messed up anythign and check your dip switches (if you have any).

Hope i helped.

I bought a heatsink and fan for my lga775 because I did not want to use the one it came with. The bracket it came with has a what looks like a peel off clear coating on the side that goes to the mobo. Where the opening is for the cpu it has a smaller white peel off that is sticky underneath. I am sure this comes off prior to the install. The clear one that covers the whole bracket is not sticky which leads me to believe it stays on. Is this a cover that helps so the metal is not touching the mobo or if I don't remove it will it heat up? I am putting it in today so tech support is closed if you were going to tell me to call. I made it sound harder than it should be . Here is the fan/ASUS P5M2-8SB4W 80mm SuperFlo CPU Cooler - Retail
 

A:Asus Lga 775 heatsink bracket?

You should be looking for a metal to metal contact with heat transfer paste between them. Most heatsinks have a pad of paste already in place, protected by a transit cover. There should be no plastic between the CPU and the heatsink. Looking at the images shows that you have to remove the existing backplate and fit the custom one. As this is metal there may be a cover to prevent shorts on the back of the motherboard.
Hope this helps

The Dell Dimension 3000 is a new computer so the Spare Parts department should have the brackets for the floppy drive. I have been working for Dell Sales until last year but I left before this computer came out. But usually Spare Parts have these parts for new computers and some old ones too.

If you bought the floppy drive at Dell and did not get the brackets, call customer service because they need to replace the whole drive or send you the brackets for free.

If you lost them or broke them then you will need to buy them. No idea about the price since I was not in Spare Parts.

I hope this can help you.

I do believe those are specific to that make and model card and not generic or interchangeable. At best all you will find on line are blanks to fill empty slots. If you are handy with a drill and a file you could make one from a blank. You might be able to get one from the original manufacturer, but the cost may not be worth it, even if you can get it.

Hi all,

I'm starting a new pc build, and would like to install an eSATA bracket that converts 2 SATA ports to eSATA.

What do I need to look for in a motherboard to ensure that it will support hot-swapping external HDD's?

Would any relatively recent motherboard that has an onboard RAID/AHCI controller allow this?

Thanks!

A:eSATA Bracket - Hot Swapping external HDD

Hi IniquiTrance and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

Most motherboards have on-board RAID controllers, however for eSATA capability your motherboard also needs to have one or more SATA sockets that are designated as being hot-swappable. These may or may not be RAID capable. Obviously, these can also be used internally, but if you wish to have eSATA capability, you need to ensure that the motherboard has the correct type of socket. Generally speaking, if it does it will also come with the bracket. Check the motherboard manual and what it says on the box. You could also see what it says on the manufacturers website prior to purchase.

I am replacing an old mobo due to constant running and bulging capacitors. But its my first time dinking with anything mobo related. Or really anything that isn't replacing a bad PSU.
The old one is an MSI P965 Neo-7.
The new one is a Biostar G41 DVI.
I have the CPU installed fine and went to put the heatsink on top (Ultra brand). The screw holes are too small. Of course, that's when I noticed that I didn't remove the mounting bracket for the heatsink from the back of the old mobo. But I can't get it off. It seems to be glued in using some kind of foam tape pad. The new mobo didn't come with a mounting bracket.
Is there some kind of way to remove the old mounting bracket and install it on the new mobo OR do I have to find myself a new mounting bracket (or heatsink) somewhere?
 

A:Heatsink mounting bracket - removal or replacement?

Usually some foam is placed between the mounting bracket and the back of the motherboard to prevent the board from getting short circuited. The foam has probably stuck to the two surfaces and hardened over time, which is why they seem glued together. If you aren't worried about damaging the old board (since you are replacing it), just pry off the old backplate with a screw driver.

I am trying to install an additional hard drive in my Compaq Presario 5000 and can figure out no way to attach it with the brackets that were included in the maxtor kit. The original hard drive (which I want to keep) is enclosed in a cage type metal bracket and there is not a second one for the new drive. Have contacted Compaq with no result. They keep giving me directions on how to configure which I'm sure will be helpful if I ever get it attached. They studiously ignore me when I say I think a part is missing, i.e. the bracket. Does anyone out there know the type of bracket or part # so I could find another one. I can see that it would be simple to put in if I had that particular bracket. Written on it is Mace Tech REV: 5 and p/n 66300006 but I can't find that anywhere and am thinking that Compaq must use another number. Is there some other way to attach using the brackets that came in the Maxtor kit? Or a way to jerry rig it without harm? The new hard drive is a Maxtor 60G, 7200 Rpm. I would really like to try this myself rather than have a tech install it but not even being able to connect to begin with is frustrating.

Hello all...

I have a D865PERL mobo and a P4 3.0E CPU (socket 478). I am looking to replace the stock heatsink/fan but I need to know if the *retaining bracket* for the heatsink is removable/replaceable *without* removing the mobo. I am looking to install a *Thermalright XP-90* along with a *Panaflo 92mm Fan High Speed (FBA09A12H-A)* that should work with the current retaining bracket. I figure if the retaining bracket is replaceable *without* removing the mobo, I will go ahead and order a metal version of the retaining bracket to replace the current plastic one. But if it's not replaceable without removing the mobo I will have to pass because I am not experienced enough to be messing with removing a mobo.

Thanks in advance for any help/insight anyone can offer. BTW, my system was built by a friend but I am unable to contact him at the moment. And researching this online and at Intel's web site etc., has been unsuccessful.
 

A:Heatsink retaining bracket removal/replacement

hi mdexter2,

I went on Intel's website to find some pics of that motherboard. they have a nice page on the D865PERL that lets you view the board from all angles. going by the pics i saw, you should be able to remove the bracket without removing the motherboard. it appears that it uses plastic pins & anchors to hold the bracket to the motherboard. (make sure there are no screws holding it as well)

1. the little white pins (they look like white circles from above) in each corner will need to be pulled (or pried) out.

2. once you have all four white pins removed, you can pull the bracket right off the motherboard. it will take a small amount of force to compress the anchors as you pull up on the bracket.

that's it!

if it the bracket uses another retention method that requires the removal of the motherboard, don't worry it's very simple. the only tool you need is a phillips screwdriver. if you're worried about all the wires... don't be. they only fit where they're supposed to go. if you're still worried, then take a picture before you unplug anything so you'll have an idea of where each wire goes.

hope this helps, cheers :wave:

I bought a new tower and when I replaced my mainboard etc., and tried to switch on my pc the monitor didn't show anything, and the d-bracket(msi) showed four red lights. Nothing works, and I don't know if it is the mainboard or the processor.
Could somebody please help me.

Does anyone know the part number for a set of hinge/display supports for the T110-121?

Mine broke last week and I can't seem to source a replacement or suitable alternative.
Thanks in advance.

A:Satellite T110-121 - broken hinge/support bracket

Huh... it is not easy to get such information but, in my opinion, you don't need it. all Satellite T110 have the same hinges and there is no difference.
Different can be only mainboard and some other hardware components like HDD, Ram WLAN card and so on.

Basic stuff like hinges is the same. I don't know where do you live but try to use Google for your country and check if you can find ?Hinge Bracket Set or Laptop Hinges for Toshiba Satellite T110?.

Check also eBay for your country.

I have an E5530 that shipped with an M.2 SATA drive.  I replaced it with a larger model, but i would also like to add a 2.5" SSD to it.

Because mine shipped with an M.2 drive, it doesn't have a bracket or what appears to be the needed cable to attach it to the motherboard.  There is a spot inside the case to put a 2.5" drive, but without the bracket and cable you can't do it.

Where/how can I buy a bracket and cable?  I can't find any part number for it.

Hello,

Does anyone have or know where I can purchase an ASUS S/PDIF-SA 4-1 Digital Audio Out Bracket? I've looked all over the internet, but can't find anyplace or anyone selling them anymore. I need it to compliment my ASUS motherboard. It allows for playback out of both Digital Out's simultaneously. Despite my motherboard only being 2 years old (and most other ASUS motherboards also including the 4-1 header for it), ASUS seemed to have discontinued it and now it's hard to come by.

There's an older revision before the ASUS S/PDIF-SA bracket though. There's the regular ASUS S/PDIF 4-1 Digital Audio Out Bracket, but this has the removable cap on the TOSLINK instead of the newer Flip up door design. They can be found on eBay, shipping from either America or China. I bought one from America for and it arrived two weeks later, but annoyingly, the TOSLINK doesn't hold in any cables. It just falls out. I much prefer the newer flip-up door design anyway. Much more convenient.

Thank you!

A:WANTED! ASUS S/PDIF-SA 4-1 Digital Audio Out Bracket

Maybe its your cable? I have a recording studio and have a TOS Link connection, without any "door" and I do not have any problems with it. I used to have a SoundBlaster interface panel with the S/PDIF TOS link and it too didn't have a "door" and no problems.

HI,

Background:
I have an Acer Aspire X1800 in a ridiculously small case. Everything gets way too hot and no room for cooling. Plus according to eXtreme Power supply calculator the supplied 220W PSU is well below recommended minimum (and making noises!). So I've nearly finished moving the hardware across to a Thermaltake V4 case with 450W PSU ($73 all up).
Hitch:
I want to keep the old Nvidia 9500GT graphics card but it has a low profile (~1/2 height) mounting bracket with DVI & hdmi holes. The card does really need to be secured. Any suggestions????
(I don't want to buy another graphics card as this is not my main PC)

Edit: I'm asking the question here because I'm guessing quite a few people may have thought about doing something similar. ie. OEM PCs from a crappy little case to a decent sized case.

A:Half height PCI mounting bracket BUT full height slot.

Did you check your box for your video card. I have a half height video card that had a short and long mounting bracket. If not, you may be able to find them online.

Install the AMD driver that is available at the HP Support portal. (If there is not one available, leave the driver installation as it is, unless you mind that it stops working.) It contains the AMD and Intel driver. Do not install the Intel driver seperately. If you do install it seperately, the switchable  grapgics function will no longer operate as expected.

Hey guys, I recently bought ProBook 450 G3 with i3 Skylake processor and 256GB SSD. Dont get me wrong, it is well crafted machine, but one thing gets on my nerves. Due tu specs, I did expect almost complete silence. However, when I am broswing, or even doinn simple things in Office, the fan countinously goes very loudly on and off, for a short period of time (5 sec.) without any reason. The notebooks temperature in that situation is around 40C, but I believe it is not the main factor, since not always when the laptop is over 40C fan kicks in. I mean, it is irregular and I am not able to pinpoint the cause, mainly because there may not be any. As the fan noise is very hearable, it makes working on this laptop in quiet enviroment kind of annoying. I have to add that all drivers and BIOS updated and no obstales are near the vent.  I also tried various power plans etc. Basically all to minimize that behaviour but it still occurs.  Any idea how to solve this is more than appreciated. Thanks in advance!

A:ProBook 450 G3 - Fan going on & off for no reason

I'm having the same problem, in fact I had to exchange a few Probook 450 G3s for various reasons including the weird and overactive fan noise, and all had the same fan issue, makes you doubt the build quality.

The strange thing is that the fan would kick in when the CPU usage was minimal, <5%, web browsing is the most taxing thing I do, no gaming or intense graphic applications.Never had an issue like this with any other laptop/computer, it's basically brand new so no possibility of dust, too hot environment etc. My 8 year old Dell laptop with much more inferior specs handles these activities easily with infrequent fan noise/activity.The laptop is not getting noticeably hot for the fan to turn on and off so often. Is the G3 so heat inefficient that the CPU gets too hot very easily, or is the fan's thermal sensor temp. range too low and the fan is kicking in unnecessarily? I've updated the BIOS and chipset and already contacted HP support who want me to send it to them, but I explained that this issue happened on all 3 units, revealing that the model design/components could be at fault.Would appreciate any insight/explanation for this.

I would like to upgrade the Probook 440 G3 with a secondary storage a  2,5 500 GB SSD.In this notebook primary storage is a 256 GB SSD M.2.Is it possible the installation of both without removing the first  256 GB SSD M.2  (SSD M.2 Primary storage + SSD 2,5 Secondary storage)? If yes is it necessary to buy the Hard drive Hardware Kit (includes bracket and screws)? Thank you

A:Probook 440 G3 SSD Upgrade

See p. 35 of the Manual here: Service Manual There is a SATA hard drive bay and it looks like the SATA connectors on the drive plug directly into the motherboard. The M.2 slot is at right angles and above the hard drive bay so yes, you can have both a 2.5 inch SATA SSD and also the M.2 mSSD. You can just add in the 2.5 inch SATA SSD (or hard drive) and you really do need the hard drive mounting kit otherwise the hard drive will rattle around in the bay and that is not good for the laptop or the drive.  Hard Drive Hardware Kit, includes: 826382-001 http://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?type=PROD&SearchText=T8Y22US When you install the SSD or HDD storage drive you will have to initialize and mount it (assign a drive letter) in disk management.

Hello

Please help me with a problem :
I have conected my laptop with tv and home cinema by hdmi but is working only 2.1
If i go on control panel -sound - ati hdmi output -configure the only option is stereo.
How i can configure to go 5.1 ?

thanks

A:5.1 on hp probook 4720s

On many systems, two channel stereo is all that is available. It can be hardware limitations and with a laptop there isn't much you can do.

I can't find anything on HP or other sites to confirm just stereo, but if that is all you are getting I suspect that is it. This is sold as a "business" laptop so it may not have all the Media features a "non business" or "consumer" model may have.

Hello everyone, So i have a problem with my HP ProBook 4320s, it won't turn on. Here's whats happening when i try to turn it on. When i have the battery in without the recharger and i try to turn it on, the orange LED light for the recharger blinks 8 times and same when i have battery in with recharger plugged in. Note, the orange LED light should stay on when recharger is plugged in and it's recharging the laptop. Now, when i have the battery out and the recharge plugged. The orange LED light doesn't even turn on at all.  Now here's what i have done. I did a hard reset, which i unplugged the recharger and removed the battery from the laptop. I then held down the power button for 60 seconds and after that i plugged in the recharger without the battery and attempted to turn on the laptop. Nothing happens and the oranged LED light doesn't turn on. I then left the recharger plugged in and this time inserted the battery. The laptop still won't turn on but the orange LED light blinks 8 times. Now i've tried this with 2 different recharger and same result above. I can confirm that the 2 recharger is working because the 2 recharger works with my other HP laptop, meaning it was able to recharge my other HP laptop.  My other HP laptop also shares the same recharger as the HP ProBook 4320s by the way.  What i've also done is, i've opened the HP ProBook laptop, took out the RAM and reinserted the RAM and tried the above and same result. I did this... Read more

So yesterday I opened my Probook 4540s, and it was at 0% charge (The OS literaly displayed that), which was weird. I tried playing with it a little, I've connected it to a charger, and it did not detect it - and eventually the probook shut down.At this moment the laptop won't turn on, and my guess is it's either the power brick, or the motherboard. I tried replacing the power cable connected to the brick but it didn't quite help.When the power cord is connected to the laptop, the LED blinks each second, but its a weird blink, like not on\off, it's turning on, blinking, turning on, blinking etc, but the laptop isn't charged, it wont start with either the battery connected or without it. Tried hard resetting, didnt work either.Does that sound like more of a motherboard issue? If so, what could I do to fix it? Should it be expensive?

When I say it did not detect the charger I mean it was simply not charging

My employer and I are seeking a computer skin for the HP Probook 450 G3 that has large print labeling for the keyboard.  We know that most skins of this nature are designed for independent keyboards; but this is a case where the staff person  has a laptop and is also sight impaired.  We're not seeking large print stickers as others may use this laptop during and after the internship period. We're wondering if anyone might be able to help us.Peter KelleySt. Paul, MN USA
