I had that same problem with the power pin falling out. I took a good few of the screws on the back to get the motherboard off but its still fairly stuck together. Does anyone know step by step which parts to clip off first to get it apart?

Re: Dismantle of Aspire 3610
A good first step is to remove the keyboard, as there are usually a few hidden screws underneath it that will go unnoticed most of the time. Remove all the panels from the bottom, along with any other screws, and then you may need a small flathead screwdriver to go around the edges and pry the top half off the bottom half, as there are usually some sort of clips to hold it together.

Hi there. Remove the laptop battery and the AC power supply, open the lid as far back as you can take it. Get a small flat headed screwdriver, now, you have to take off the keyboard bezel, this is the strip of plastic above the keyboard with the power button on it, the best way to remove it is to start by the on/off button by gently prying the bezel up from the lid hinge, once you have one side out gently pull it up using your fingers, it will unclip and lift away. Next you have to remove 2 screws from the top of the keyboard, these should be visible to you, once the screws are out carefully lift the keyboard up, you will see a ribbon cable that is connected to the motherboard, gently pull the tab up on the connector that the ribbon cable sits in and it should release it and you can now remove the keyboard and replace it. To re-assemble just follow my direction in reverse. Please post back with the results and for any additional advice if needed.
do you have power ? if no, check your power outlet and ac adapter first, if both of them are ok, it could be your motherboard.
if you have power but no display, this is called no post.
reseat your memory. if still not working, use 1 memory and try to put it in different ram slot. and if this is still not working, your motherboard is bad
The motherboard manufacturers are Phenoix, as it says on bootup. I'm not sure if you can recover the BIOS password by simple keystrokes/buffer overflows anymore, although I heard that some motherboards still have the password running in volatile memory, meaning that if you remove the battery it could reset the password (along with any custom settings and the clock).
The problem is that the power inlet jack has a bad connection on the motherboard. The way to resolve this is to remove the motherboard from the laptop and resolder the jack. This is not a repair I would suggest for the novice. If this is not repaired soon, further damage can be done to the motherboard that may not be easily fixable. Please have this repaired soon.
