Hmm. Are you sure that you want to go any further,
i.e., I recommend that you STOP and take it to a qualified technician.

The power-plug is soldered to the motherboard;
so, you'll need "good" skills at using a soldering-iron,
if you wish to reattach it.

Did you lift-off and remove the keyboard, taking care to not damage the "ribbon-cables" which connect it to the motherboard?
There could be additional screws under the keyboard.

What manufacturer? What model?
Have you looked at the manufacturer's web-site, for downloadable documents, such as a "Service Manual" for it? That manual would describe the necessary "disassembly" steps.

Broken internal power connection on gateway p-631-hsn


I recently repaired one of those with a radioshack plug and socket. If it got bumped somehow, it most likely broke the socket inside. You have to follow all the screw which are marked in length by milimeter. First is getting off the trim around the keyboard which snaps on. This is hard to get apart without breaking. Once you get that, the keyboard should have 2 screws and screws do release everything else, piece by piece. I think I have some pics of the one I did, if I can find them it may help you.

My averatec n3400 displays goes dark after 1-2 min the laptop works properly, i can use it with external monitor


Typically the most common problem with back lighting on laptops (especially when it works partially) is the power inverter for the LCD display.

It's a delicate operation but if you're comfortable with taking apart your laptop I would recommend taking apart the LCD cover and try to reseat the power connector to the inverter or simply replace it,
here's an example part I found on google shopping

I've had some success with just reseating the cables, other times I have to replace the inverter.. rarely I have to replace the actual LCD display.

How do i open my laptop,so i can tighten my power cord input


You will probebly find that it is not a matter of tightening up the dc jack, if it is loose, it is coming away from its housing and you may need to replace the jack.

I have removed all the screws from my Evesham W730-K8 laptop because i need to get to the power socket inside, but the laptop still won't come apart. What am I missing?


The best rule to remember is do not force it apart if it does not come apart easy then look for a hidden screw the case does have snap locks on the sides try starting at a point that you can get your fingernail into and slowly move the part that is not coming apart apply a little force but make sure that all screws have been removed you may have to remove some of the thin plastic covers and the battery to make sure all of the screws have been removed

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.

Will not power on wont charge it wont do anything


If the outlet is good and the cord is giving power out - It must be dead. That is all anyone can tell you with what you have stated.

Unless the power plug on the laptop has broken loose.

Sounds like your power plug has come desoldered. This is internal and will have to be taken apart to repair. If you are comfortable with taking it apart you can repair it yourself. If you have not ever soldered anything before or taken a laptop apart before you need to have someone else do it.
If you decide to do it yourself you will need the instruction manual to locate all of the screws. You will need a soldering iron and a camera along with a pencil and paper to draw a diagram and take notes. Laptops have a lot of fragile parts in them that will break. Do not do this if you do not know how. This is something that a qualified tech should do. You will see the plug and you will need to re-solder it back onto the board. One wrong move and you could damage the entire computer. If you try to do this yourself you are on your own and I am not responsible nor is anyone else.

Lap top computer power problem


Screws, if overtightened or replaced with the incorrect size (i.e., too long a screw), can somtimes cause a board to short. Try taking the screws out completely and then see what happens. It's also possible your laptop may have a bad power supply as a result of the case having been taken apart or put together incompletely. If the first step doesn't work have it diagnosed by a competent repair person . Also, you may consider trying one of eBay's "laptop power" repair services postings. Some offer to replace your power supply fitting (rear plug) for about $50 plus shipping.
