Removing the case from the laptop

I need to replace the power socket on my T10 laptop and to do this I have to take of the bottom of the case to be able to get at the thing. I can remove all of the necessary screws, including the ones underneath the keyboard, but cant find a way to get at the two screws that sit under the hinge of the screen. Does anyone know, do I have to remove the screen somehow, or is there a simple and easy way to get at them that I just cant see. Help please Allanh

    I have a toshiba laptop, the battery has run down and the power supply conection isn't charging the battery. The adapter is fine. Does anyone have any idea as to what the problem could be. If so, how can I resolve it. I've tried to remove the cover but have failed.

    Please help

Thanks TabT. You are so right, I am happy to say I managed it in the end, by dint of proding and pulling in various places. The most difficult bit was the desoldering, and at first the Mboard started to look as though it might not survive, but in the end, I clipped the power socket of at all of it attachments and then it was fairly easy to get out each of the 7 soldered tabs one at a time. So, for anyone brave or daft enough to try this, clip of the socket first, then tackle the solder.

I'm not familiar with this model, are there any stickers or covers you could pry up? And just a note - desoldering the old power socket from the mainboard can be quite a task unless you have the proper tools. Good luck to you!

How to remove the bottom of the gatwway lt2016u

Ok, on a laptop you need to get some cups and label them toput the screws in so you will know where they came from. Remove the PowerCord, Remove the Battery then start removing all thescrews from the bottom of the laptop. Then remove all the devices fromthe bottom of the laptop such as the hard drive, the memory, dvd/cd drive,wireless card, etc. Take note of how the wires are on the wireless card,those are the antennas.

Look inside the battery case, hard drive case, memory case and dvd drive slotfor screw. Some screws on the bottom case in inside of some of the devicecases might have the icon of a keyboard next to it. Those screws hold thekeyboard in place.

Turn the laptop over, remove the strip that is just above the keyboard but becareful because a cable might be attached to it. Then remove the screwsthat hold the keyboard in place that are under where the strip was and gentlylift the keyboard out because there is definitely a cable under it.

Next you can remove the screws from the lcd hinges at the corners and lift thelcd screen off, also note that you will have to pull the antennas cable and thelcd cable when you remove the lcd.

Next start removing any screws that hold the palmrest in place. Take note ofany cables that are attached to the palmrest and remove them then lift thepalmrest off.

Next start removing any screws you see that hold the motherboard to the bottomcase, then lift the motherboard out an start replacing the fan.

A digital camera to take pictures will be most helpful to refresh you memory ofwhere things were.

Alright so you need to pull all of the screws out on the bottom of the laptop. The casing will most likely require a little force due to any sealant that the company used if this is the first time opening it. you may also notice a little locktight on the screws that you have pulled out. You just need to run your fingernail or a flatheaded screwdriver around the edge of the panel and pry it off little by little.

Let me know if you need further directions or have other questions and I would be glad to do what I can.

Battery not charging !!!. replacement of new batter also has the same problem. and old batter suddenly started charging by meddling with the cable for once. and then again the same problem. would it be...

Looks like either the power jack of your adapter is experiencing a bad connection. Check if the power adapter's cable near the jack which plugs into the laptop is not severely bent.If this is the case, then you will need to replace the power adapter.

If this is not the case, check the DC socket where you plug the power jack into the laptop. This socket might be loose or broken. If this turns out to be the case, then your laptop needs to be disassembled in order to re-solder or replace this socket, depending on its condition.

Toshiba satellite a215 loses connection with power cord

The fault could be the adapter plug (a broken wire at the plug) that connects into the laptop or a faulty power socket on the laptop. In most cases it is the power socket on the laptop, it could be just a dry solder joint in the circuit board where the power socket is soldered on the motherboard or the power socket is faulty and therefore needs to be replaced.
Check power adapter’s DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.
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. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

The power port seems to be broke. the connector will not seat properly. Is it possible to switch out the case?

Most likely you would have to replace the port itself. On most laptops this is soldered to the board, however your model may be connected via cable, which is far more friendly to replace.

Removing the screws from the bottom of the laptop (Checking under any bumpers) and carefully removing and click-tabs holding the top and bottom of the case will allow for better inspection.

Let us know
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.

How to open the case of a compaq 1685

Sorry, I don't think you can replaced the socket by your self, it not just because you even don't know to open it, it also need soldering skills and find correct socket can be fit in the case( must same one used for your motherboard.)
Must take whole motherboard out of the case if you want to replaced the power socket. That's not DIY, that's my job.

It's probably the power socket on the laptop not the power jack on the AC adapter. You need to open the laptop by removing the casing screws. Then remove the motherboard from the base so a new socket can be soldered on.
