Question about Computers & Internet
I have to get into to this laptop to replace the USB socket. Any data on opening it up??
There are no manuals on how to dismantle just about any laptop, this is trial and error and you would have to work this out yourself. If you do attempt this take care to make notes to where the screws came from, draw a diagram of the laptop and mark up where this go as you go along. When you do get to the laptop motherboard you may find that you might not be able to replace the USB socket, if this is the case and you have a spare working socket, re-assemble the laptop following the guide you did and buy a USB hub

If your laptop works fine while plugged in but stops working while unplugged it's likely that either your laptop battery is bad or your laptop is not charging the battery properly.
Below are steps that can be taken to help identify the cause of this issue.
Leave power plugged in
Make sure the computer has been charging from the power plug for at least two hours before attempting to unplug it.
Remove and reconnect battery
In some situations the battery can become loose.
Removing it and then put it back into the laptop.
Use a third-party battery utility to determine the total capacity of the battery. For example, BatteryCare is a free software utility capable of doing this.
Replace battery or AC adapter
If your computer is still in warranty we suggest skipping to the next step.
If the above steps have been completed, we suggest replacing the battery in the computer or AC adapter.
In most situations it's a bad battery. some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
check all power and data leads from motherboard to hard drive and all of your cd/dvd drives make sure connections are secure dust free and not faulty
computers need all power and data to travel through every working device and to finish its cycle
so any faulty lead will end in computer error or shutdown or fail to boot
make sure your computers RAM modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge and seated with no dust in the sockets
hope this helps
some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
