I need to replace or repair power supply connector

How do I remove the back of my laptop. I removed all the screws and

so not to break something.

    this is tricky..what you call the back, may in fact be the bottom.

Keyboard replacement


Unplug the laptop's power cord from the wall outlet and remove the internal battery pack. To remove the internal battery pack, simply locate the release button on the bottom of the laptop. This button needs to be held in while the battery pack is slid free from the computer. This button locks the battery in place, so if it is not held in the battery pack will not be able to be removed. Unscrew all of the screws from the bottom of the laptop. All laptops have different amounts of screws holding the external case together; however, there is usually one screw at each corner, and then one or two screws in the center of the laptop. Once all the screws are removed, slide the laptop's hard drive from the computer. The computer's hard drive will generally be located on the left or right side of the laptop; there will be a small symbol engraved into the laptop to denote its location. Remove the screen from the body of the laptop. To do this, remove the two screws from the back of the computer that hold the screen's hinges in place. Once the screws are removed, pull up gently on the screen until the two pegs that held the screen up have cleared the holes in the laptop's body from which they rested. There will be two wires that lead away from the laptop screen so make sure not to pull up so far that they become disconnected. Step 4 Separate the two plastic halves of the laptop's external case to expose the computer's internal components. Lift up on the keyboard pad and flip it on its face. You will notice a film-like strip that leads away from the keyboard and into the heart of the laptop. Before you can remove the keyboard, you must unscrew the metal piece that covers the computer's motherboard. This piece takes up the majority of the inside of the computer, so it will be very obvious to you when you are looking inside the laptop. Disconnect the keyboard connection after the metal covering from Step 4 has been removed. To remove the keyboard, follow the film-like strip back to where it connects to the computer's motherboard. The end of the connection will be held down by a small plastic tab. Pull up on this tab to release the keyboard connector and simply lift the old keyboard out of the laptop. Connect the new keyboard to the laptop. To do this, simply stick the end of the new keyboard's film-like connector inside the plastic tab that you released to remove the old keyboard. Push the tab back down so that it holds the end of the new keyboard's connector in place. Reassemble the computer by putting the components back in the exact spot you removed them from.

How to remove the keyboard of a HP Mini 110 3130sv


Removing the Damaged Keyboard
1. Enusre the laptop is fully powered off, unplugged laptop ac adapter from the wall, and the battery taken out.
2. Turn the laptop over. On some models icons indicating which screws are attached to the keyboard for HP Mini 110-3130sv displayed. If not, you may have to "eyeball" it if you can't find a breakdown for your model online.
3. Remove those screws with a T-8 or Phillips screwdriver.
4. Turn the laptop back over and open it up. Check and see if the HP laptop keyboard is tucked under any plastic pieces. If so, find if those plastic pieces are screwed into anything, and unfasten them as well. If not, it probably uses clamps that can easily be removed.

HP Compaq NC6220/6230 BIOS password reset procedure:
  1. disconnect the power supply and remove the battery
  2. remove the three screws that hold in the keyboard on the bottom
  3. up top slide the four tabs on the keyboard closest to the screen towards the touch pad
  4. fold the keyboard over (no need to disconnect it from the mainboard)
  5. using a tiny flat head pry up the power button panel along the edge of the screen
  6. bow the power button panel in the middle of the laptop and gently ease one side up
  7. unplug the connector for the power button panel and remove
  8. locate the CMOS battery in the upper right corner, follow the wire to the left and locate the connector at the upper left corner of the dvd drive
  9. remove the two screws located in the immediate vicinity of the CMOS battery connector
  10. detach the CMOS battery connector
  11. have a beer, sip slow and take at least five minutes
  12. DO NOT reconnect the CMOS battery or the laptop battery
  13. connect the power supply and power on
  14. hit F10 to enter setup
  15. if you did it right you should get right into the BIOS setup; change whatever settings you fancy, save and exit
  16. let the laptop finish POST then power off and disconnect the power supply
  17. reassembly is the reverse of above
when you power back on and right before the OS boots you'll get a message about the date and time not being set, this will go away after the first full boot into the OS

All the best

I opened my computer and it was on, but the screen was frozen so I shut it down and tried to reboot it, but it wouldn't turn on. I thought it was something to do with the battery being dead, so I plugged...


It has something to do with the power supply of your unit or the motherboard itself, especially when you isolate the battery and plug only the power cable and i wont turn on. In this case, you can reseat the power supply by removing the cables and battery when the unit is off, remove the screws below it, remove the hard drive, remove the optical drive then remove the power supply and reseat it. Then perform the steps in descending order (insert optical, hard drive, screws, battery, cables). Turn it on and observe if there are lights lit on the keyboard. If you don't know how to do this or if symptom persists, consult HP tech support for repair of your laptop..

Hi i have a laptop advent 8109 i need to open it


Remove panel at the back, remove keyboard from prongs at the top, remove HDD, remove screws holding down the laptop, remove heatsink, remove fan, remove ODD connector, lift out motherboard at an angle. Its really something that needs to be shown, but thats the order in which you need to do it. If you can figure out the "in-betweens", you will be on your way to a cheap repair!

My laptop won't charge or run on ac power.. none of the lights light up so I know it is not getting any power.. is it power cord? connector? and how would I fix it?


If you know how to use a multimeter check your power supply; plug it in and,check for about 19 volts at the computer side of the plug if that is ok; check the motherboard power socket; plug in the power supply and, wiggle the computer side of the plug while it is in the socket while you press and, hold down the power button. If that does not work the motherboard will need professional repair or, replacement.

PSU connector on the mainboard


Not sure about that brand but the normal process for removing the back on a lappy is:
Remove all screws on the bottom.
Remove all covers and cards and put them safe
Remove battery rom and hard disk
Remove panel above keyboard and screen hinge bracket cover if any
Remove keyboard
Remove any screws from under keyboard that hold chassis
Remove screen bracket screws and connectors from screen.
Remove screen off chassis.
Remove any visible connectors that will get in the way when case is separated.
Separate case making sure no cables are caught.
Remove screws holding in motherboard
Remove motherboard
Turn over and resolder joints on the bottom of connector if plastic is in order.
Reverse the procedure for assembly.
Its not a very easy repair an experienced tech will take about an hour maybe a little longer to do it.
If your memory isnt great take photos along the way, makes for easier assembly.
Good luck

Faulty DC power connector


First pulling a machine apart takes time and careful disassembly - it is easy to snap off fragile plastic panels or rip cables and replacement parts can easily cost as much as paying someone to disassemble it for you. Usually a jack repair is $100-$150 depending on the shop.

Toshiba's are a multilayered setup - You have to remove all the screws from the bottom (note that they are labeled by screw length next to each hole - do NOT put the wrong length in when reassembling!!) Make sure to remove the hard drive and ram cover and check for screws there are well.

After all the screws are out of the bottom, remove the panel above the keyboard. Remove the keyboard and all the screws under the keyboard. Then you can get at the motherboard and power jack.

You will probably have to remove the motherboard to replace the jack - Usually the mounting screws for the motherboard are not so clearly labeled - i mark the holes with a sharpie when pulling a mainboard.

Good luck!
