To dismantle your laptop, shut down the laptop, turn it upside down and remove the battery. While its still up side down, remove the Cd drive, use a screw driver that will fit into the screws to unscrew every screw under the laptop. Make sure all the screws are removed, then remove the Ram.

After that, use a flat screw driver to open the laptop cover from the side. The laptop cover is clipped together, so you will need to apply some force in order to gain access to the internal part of the laptop.

You might not need to open the screen part. But if necessary, check the screen part, you will see some small rubbers around the screen area, remove these rubbers and you will find the screen screws.

Note that you will need to apply force using a flat screw driver to open the laptop. And at the same time, be careful.

Good luck.

How can i fix my lap top battery circuit after fixing new cells?

A very dangerous thing to do and possibly the pcboard and temperature sensor inside the battery is now damaged. Probably cheaper to buy a new battery through ebay than purchase new cells to attempt a repair.

I need to gain access to the ac adapter port because i dont have any power when i plug in thinking may just b needing some solder but cant get the dang thing apart any help would b greatly appreciated

On most screens there are rubber plugs that cover screws also underneath the lap top is screws which you have to undo in order to release the plates which are the power button plate as well as the keyboard plates be careful to remove components carefully and ground yourself before removing any parts. Always mark cables, fasteners so that you can remember where they go back to when assembling the parts back on the housing of the lap top.
You can now remove the board enough to get your component soldered in. I would also check and make sure that the power supply is not faulty as well before going to this extent of removing the board from the lap top. Also it would behoove you to just purchase a new board you can find those on EBay rather cheaper than factory boards will cost even know that the part is input plastic power port hole is almost the price of a refurbished board. If you go that route you will not have to solder or do the installation taking the chance of destroying the board anyway. That is what I would do personally at least research that option before going all out and soldering a component to the board. It is easy to ruin a board if you do not do it right. Also there are places with step by step video such as just use keywords to find your video.

I have a asus X70L laptop that has a damaged power socket, how do i dismantal the laptop to replace the socket

I answered this question for another brand of computer, but the solution is the same. This is a common problem, and the solution is not cheap or easy. The connector is soldered to the motherboard, or sometimes to a smaller auxiliary board. Either way, taking apart a laptop is not easy. This is a fix usually recommended for a computer shop. Sometimes it is not repairable, and a new circuit board is needed. Sorry for the bad news.

Have acer aspire 3690 - power socket is detached from board and some of the connecting tracks directly to the socket are damaged/missing - Have replacement socket but at a loss with regards to connecting...

Use epoxy glue to fasten the socket to the board. I assume that you have a proper soldering iron (small grounded tip, not a soldering gun), and know how to use it. After the epoxy has cured, trace the damaged tracks back to another solder connection, then solder an insulated (about #24 or #26) wire to that point and to the appropriate connection on the power jack. There should be a maximum of three wires to install. If you make the proper connections, it should work as before. Good luck!

Battery charger fine but lap top shows not charging

If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.
