Help with taking laptop apart

I have removed all of the screws from the bottom of the computer. I try to pull it apart but something in the center of the computer is holding it together. It is being held from up under the keypad. I was wondering if you could help me with this problem please.

I have a toshiba satellite p105-s6024, and have had to take it apart multiple times. I have also taken apart the a105 series, and they both presented me with this problem. i finally found the solution when i took off the top panel that houses the power button (P105), or the panel with the speakers (A105). It can be snapped off with a small flat screwdriver at about 4-5 snap points along the border of the F-keys and the black trim of the top panel. under there you will find 3 screws for the keyboard, and four screws for the monitor hinges (2 per hinge). I hope this helps! if you need pics, i'll be taking it apart again soon, just e-mail me at

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!!!!!

How to take apart hp ze5570us to see what is wrong with the plug socket for the charger? I have taken all screws out but the computer does not seem to be coming apart easily.

First of all remove all your components ie. RAM, hard drive, battery, CD/DVD drive etc. Sometimes there are screws located in the area where these components are located that secures the top and bottom halves of the case.
I suggest that as you remove the screws from the bottom of the case you take a note where the came from as some of the screws are different lengths.
There may be s strip panel between the top of the keyboard and the LCD screen, remove this first, it will be clipped in place and held with screws from the bottom of the laptop.
Next the keyboard should removed and keyboard cable.
Look closely for screws hidden behind plastic stick on covers, you need to use a sharp thin blade to lift off these covers to reveal the screws behind the covers.
The top and bottom halves of the case is usually held in place with plactic clips, start at an opening and carefully pull apart until a clip releases and the work along that edge to release more clips. Continue along each edge until you separate the case.
The LCD screen is usually secured with screws on the back edge of the laptop and possible with screws near the edge of the motherboard. Take care to disconnect the video connector.
The motherboard needs to be removed from the bottom half of the case so you can access the power connector.
Take careful note where you remove each screw as you need to put them back in reverse order.

Best of luck, have fun.

I have a toshiba A135-S4656. The fan needs replaced or a cleaning

Getting to the fan on your laptop is VERY DIFFICULT. There's a lot more screws, wires and snaps holding the computer together than you'd imagine. It's best to get a professional to do it, however less and less people these days are willing to pry open someone's laptop because a lot can go wrong.
If you've backed up your laptop and are willing to risk not being able to put it back together, then go ahead. To get to the fan you actually need to get through the top. Unscrew every screw you can find on the back and the bottom. You'll need to open up the hard drive and motherboard because there's screws there too. Pry off the piece covering your speakers, then the keyboard, then unplug the ribbon wires by moving the little plastic things, all the while unscrewing everything you see. Good luck.

I need to get into the case of a Samson V25 laptop.

The case comes apart at the seam that runs all the way around it. The bottom part has little projections in it that little tabs in the top part fit into. You can use a small screwdriver to pry the case apart (acutally something plastic will ensure you don't leave marks).
But--be careful. You actually have to press in a little on the top half (or possibly the bottom half--depending on the computer) as you are prying apart so you don't break the tabs. Take your time!
Also, you probably will have to remove the posts holding the video and printer plugs.

The connection where you plug in the power on my compact presario R3000 laptop is broken. The female part that you plug into is loose and probably broken away from the solder on the mother board it self. I...

Before you pull apart your laptop, check the male connector and power cord of the adapter, check it with a multimeter and or plug it into another Compaq. You could have a broken wire in the power cord, it could save you a lot of work.

To pull apart the laptop, remove the battery, hard drive and CD drive first.
Then remove all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, plus the screws on the back that holds the LCD's hinge to the laptop base.
Take a note of where the screws come from, some may be shorter that others.
The remove the keyboard (the screws should already been removed from the bottom of the laptop).
Carefully remove the plastic cover next to the base of the LCD screen, This may also cover the hinges, if necessary fold the screen flat to enable you to carefully pry this cover up and off.
The plastic top cover is clip fastened to the bottom of the case, carefully prize apart from one side and gradually work around the other sides.
You can now remove the LCD, there are two connects attached to the motherboard, unclip these.
The motherboard is under the keyboard and plastic top cover, there are screws securing it to the plastic base, remove these and you should be able to free it from the base.
Now you can solder/fix the power connector.
I suggest you use a temperature controlled soldering iron.

Don't use too much force, you might crack the plastic parts.
Best of luck and have fun.

HP Compaq nx9010 CD drive replacement

You are correct.
The screws for the dvd drive is under the keyboard.
there should be 2 tabs one above the f4 and the other above f12 take a regular head screw driver put it where those tabs are and gently pull down towards the touchpad and the keyboard should come up easily.
Now under that keyboard in the center you will see a opening and inside that opening you will see 1 philip head screw remove that by turning counter clockwise.
Right below where you removed that screw you will see another opening which has another philps head screw in it.
Remove that screw counter clockwise and the dvd rom should pull straight out with ease.
To put it back together just reverse the steps.
If you need further assistance do not hesitate to ask.

Twinhead 12D Laptop

Are you sure you have all the screws out, there is a small plastic disc on the bottom of the laptop underneath the card slot, this needs to be removed to access a screw (obviously take out plastic blank in slot first).

And there is not much reason to dismantle LCD either.

What is it you are trying to do.
