As the subject says. All the screws that can be seen have been removed but I still cannot access the motherboard. There appears to be something still holding it together but I cannot find any other screws! I need to get in to the device because I need to check if the hard drive cable has become detatched somehow as when trying to boot up, it says device not found.
If you look very carefully at the top of the keyboard in the recess there are 3 tabs that can be pushed back towards the screen with a knife blade and you can lift the top of the keyboard out and remove it. You will then find 3 silver screws that hold the top to the bottom. Three cables need to be removed from their sockets and the cables that connect to the network card (a black and a grey wire) the connectors just pull off. Use a small screwdriver to prise them up gently. Voila the laptop is now in two pieces.

Re: Trying to open up joybook 8100
If you can't access the device behind a bay on the underside, the chances of it working after you dissmantle is slim, it's a specialist job where notebooks are concerned, the board is easily damaged when twisting and pulling.

Hey There,I would check the battery terminal connections real good.If they check out I have seen some inside fuse box issues where a terminal gets hot & burns at the front 68way connector.The wiring con be accessed by removing the left side console trim panel next to drivers right foot area.You can wiggle the wiring the next time it doesn't start & see if it takes off.If so you should back that connector out (7mm) screw in center & inspect male terminals with flashlight.If you see a terminal that looks like the plastice is malted around it you fould it.It will be in the first row.Used fuse box if so.Hope this helps
Moisture has caused a little short in between the contact under th keyboard.
I would recommend to open your phone and gently wipe any moisture under the keyboard..
1) Remove Battery 2) Remove 2 #6 torque screw from rear top of phone 3) Using a prying tool remove base of phone ( where the log of the phone company is 4) Remove 2 more #6 torque screws 5) Remove side chrome cover ( Snaps on) 6) Lever in between front and rear case and pry open gently 7) Wipe gently and re-mount in reverse order.. It should work
