Help

I am in the middle of dismantling a compaq NX6325 notebook but I am stuck.

I have all the visible screws out, I have the casing 90% split, but it is still attached at the hinge side.

I cant see anymore screws.
I cant find any more snap lugs on the plastic casing.

I am not a novice at this; come on I am a mechanical designer; I have taken loads of kit to pieces before.

Has anyone out there taken one of these apart before?
Are there some screws hidden under some trim somewhere?

Any quick help would be appreciated.

Some bonehead around here runs a web page called D-A-L.com (http://d-a-l.com)that doesn't suck too bad for this kind of thing. :D

cheers VCD.

laptop problem was power supply.

it is now reassembled, still not working and in the trash.

new laptops are dirt cheap over here, so it is cheaper to buy a new one than to pay for a repair.

yes - a major chain in the uk is selling laptops for 100 pounds (GB).

not top spec of course but enough for the kids school courses and surfing needs.

it will cost about that to get the old one repaired unlesss you do it yourself.

Wow! That price is amazing. Is it that goofy little green lap top with the "antenna" for wifi?

this in the Uk on national advertising and we all think it must be underspec but no one that I know has yet bit the bullet and gone and got one.
