Dissamble asus ulcpc to access power supply
LOL, You need detailed instructions on how to disassemble a laptop? You do of course know that every model is different, right? Instructions would have to be high level or it would take a book to give you details. If you don't know what you're doing I suggest you take it to a computer repair shop. Actually taking the laptop apart is the easy part for the task you want to do. The hard part is desoldering the dc jack that is already on the motherboard and then soldering a new one in it's place. Desoldering and getting the old dc jack out is a task and if you put too much pressure on the motherboard you could crack it or break something off.
So to take it apart you take all the screws off the bottom of the laptop, remove the hard drive, remove the cd drive, remove the battery, remove the wireless card, remove memory. Some of the things we just removed might be secured with screws and some of them once they are removed will surely have screws that were under them that attaches to the motherboard. Then you have to turn the laptop over, remove the piece that is right above the keyboard that normally has the power button on it. Be careful, sometimes there is a cable attached to it. Then you remove the screws that hold the keyboard and carefully pull the keyboard out because it most definitely has a cable under it. Then you remove the lcd by removing screws from it's hinges, and remove the cable that plugs into the motherboard and carefully pull the wifi cable that runs from the lcd, then down under where the keyboard sat, and through a slot that gets it to the bottom of the motherboard. Once you remove the lcd, you start removing screws that hold the palmrest to the motherboard and when you lift the palmrest be careful because there are cables such as the mouse and touchpad under it. Then you start removing screws that have the motherboard attached to the bottom case. Once they are removed you can lift the motherboard out but be careful because there will be other cables attached to it that you'll have to take off such as the cpu fan cable, etc. One you have the motherboard out you might have to remove the heat sink and fan that is secured by screws and the head sink has a coat of Thermal Paste on it that you'll most likely want to replace otherwise you have the risk of overheating. Once all that is done, now you have to start desoldering to pull the old prongs out that was holding the dc power jack to the motherboard (this part alone will take well over an hour), Then pop the new jack in it's place and start soldering it. Then pray to God, Allah, Buddha, Jehovah or whoever it is you serve that you can put it all back together and that it works!!!!!
