Question about Gateway 4530GZ Notebook
My laptop's power jack is loose and i have to take the power in and out to get it working. What's the best way to open the laptop (i can't get it open just under the lid!!) and fix this problem?
The last 2 screws to separate top from bottom are located ynder the 3/8" wide clip on plastic piece above your function buttons. Center screw and right hand side. Be careful of ribbons, plug-ins and wires that attach to both sides. I strongley suggest not doing this if you are not mechanically inclined. You could very easily cause damage to your laptop.

You need a service manual, most likely you can download it from the manufacturer's website. open the laptop and inspect the power jack to see if the solder points have come loose, or if the jack is broken. if the solder has come loose, you can resolder it. if the jack is broken, you have to replace it look on ebay for a replacement jack. look for a qualified repair technician to do the work if you are not experienced or comportable doing it yourself.
