Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
This is a job best left to a technician. The power connector runs through a motherboard with about 8 layers of PCB.
If you want to do it yourself, then you will need a temperature controlled soldering iron and some quality solder to reattach it.
Heat the area to be soldered, and add the solder as you go. Becareful not to leave any splatters of solder on the board or it will be game over the second you apply power to it.
The other thing you will need is patience..lots of patience.
There are screws, alot of screws, and they are all tiny. Did I mention patience?
Getting them apart is also a job in itself. Sometimes just when you think you have all the screws out, there are still a few not visible. The best method is to gently pull at each item you think should be free. If it catches anywhere, then look in that area for more screws.
Oh, and did I mention patience.
It's a good idea to get a snaplock bag to hold the screws in, or get a few magnets from the fridge to keep them together.
Good luck =)
