How can I fix the loose power jack?

\015 My laptop's power jack is loose and i have to take the power in and out to get it working. \015\012What's the best way to open the laptop (i can't get it open just under the lid!!) and fix this problem?\015

Answers :

The last 2 screws to separate top from bottom are located ynder the 3/8" wide clip on plastic piece above your function buttons. Center screw and right hand side. Be careful of ribbons, plug-ins and wires that attach to both sides. I strongley suggest not doing this if you are not mechanically inclined. You could very easily cause damage to your laptop.
