Step 1: Taking laptop apart..

once he took it apart he took a soldering iron to the power connector because it was slightly loose but ended up burning a hole and messing up solder com pleasely.

I apologies now i did not take enough pictures it was all bit of an afterthought to write this up.

So now getting down to step one.

So take apart your laptop, this will consist of taking all screw that you can find out of laptop and making some form of map out of the screw structure so its easy to put tougher again. My friend however did not do this and thought would throw everything out. silly boy.

in this case the screen comes away with keyboard from the main body. This is the case with most machines well at least i have taken apart 3 machines and thats what they have all been designed like.

so once you have machine in little pleases you go to next step.

I'd suggest changing the title to "How to fix a laptop power connector." A bit more descriptive of the project.

I, too, have a Gateway and have already had the power connector replaced once. I'm almost ready for it to get replaced AGAIN. I'll keep this bookmarked for when the day happens. Thanks.
