Answers :

Well if my first step would to make sure, once again that I removed every screw. Sometimes screws can be hiding in hard to reach places or underneath the stickers that say void if warrenty is removed just to prevent people from doing there own laptop repair. If you are certain that all screws are removed, then I would slowly begin to opening the case. Your problem maybe that most laptop cases snap together as well as screw together. I would take a small, then, plastic object (plastic because it doesnt conduct electricty and prevents from shocking the parts)and slowly try to move it along the seam of the case where it opens. If you feel too much resistance chances are that you missed a screw, however on a rare occasion it could just be the case snaps into place very securily. Make sure that when you have the laptop parts out that they are in a static free enviroment as to not damage them, and by the sounds of the charging port moving I hope your moms BF knows how to solder because that is what it sounds like that it will require.
