Android: Find your Phone from Chrome – alternative to Android Device Manager

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/17

In addition to the 1.5 year old Android Device Manager option to find your phone as of yesterday you can now also perform aFind My Phone from Google Search.

Accessing the Dell Inspiron 17R-5737 HDD (via: NotebookCheck.net Reviews)

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/17

Though the Dell Inspiron 17R 5737 Owner’s Manual contains instructions on pages 24-26, it was easier to see how to access it on the photos at

Review Dell Inspiron 17R-5737 Notebook – NotebookCheck.net Reviews.

Steps (see also the pictures below):

– remove the battery
– remove the wide bottom plate
– remove the three screws of the hard drive (there are 4 holes, but only 3 screws, saves half a cent per laptop)
– pull the tab gets the metal bracket with the hard drive out of the laptop.

Now you can unscrew the hard drive from the bracket, and replace it with a new one or an SSD drive.
