Question about Averatec 5110HX Notebook
I have solved the problem! The key to disassembly seems to be prying the keyboard off, as underneath are several screws that need to be removed in order to fully open the case.
I searched diligently online and found <a rel='nofollow' href="http://fatpenguinblog.com/scott-rippee/averatec-6200-laptop-deconstruction/"target=_blank>http://fatpenguinblog.com/scott-rippee/averatec-6200-laptop-deconstruction/</a> which shows the steps to taking apart an Averatec 6200, which has a substantially similar keyboard.
From the pictures there, I ascertained that the keyboard can be pried up from either side, where it is snapped into place with plastic tabs. Obviously, this needs to be done with care, so as not to damage delicate and irreparable plastic, and other, parts!
Good Luck! My computer is booting again, after I used a minute bit of tinfoil to reconnect the desoldered DC input jack, although it's a very temporary and fragile fix. I just don't have tools small enough to resolder the connection.
