Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I need to replace dc jack on my Acer extensa 4420 laptop, but the bottom cover won't pry off (I removed all the visible screws). Am I missing a step? Most computer covers pop right out once you removed the screws on the bottom, but this one is different....Help!

Answers :

If it has 'rubber' non-slip pads, try prying them off- may have screws under them- hope you're really good with a soldering iron!! may just need to re-solder loose connection! good hands, good eyes, good iron!! use 'organic-core' solder!!
good luck! may have screws under battery slot, ram cover, hd cover! can be a royal pain! may check their web-site for 'exploded' maintainance' diagrams showing how to dis-assemble laptop! don't forget, they're small and light for a reason, and not as forgiving as desk-tops!! whatever you do-remove power supply cord & battery, before you continuing to dis-assemble it! no- i'm not considering you stupid!!
you obviously have diagnosed the problem, and are trying to access the the problem area! i've seen several laptops with the same 'weakness'- it's like- 'DUH'- couldn,t you find a better place to save a few cents?? a major stress point! bet it keeps the 'official' repair centers in the 'bucks'!
ah, well! enough grousing- again- good luck!
