HP NX9010 power socket

  1. Hi all, The DC power socket has fractured solder connections to the main board. I have the knowledge and means to correct the problem once I can gain access. All underside case and compartment screws have been removed, including two rear facing. the chassis still seem's to be held somewhere.. don't want to cause any problems if this is reasonably straight forward task, so would appreciate some help please.
    Many thanks.

    When I was a PC at Firedog I came across a laptop in that series that needed the case removed, After the screws are removed the case is held together by very strong plastic clamps inside that snap together. Be very very VERY careful and use a small flat head screw drive and pop each clamp apart until it eventually falls apart.
