How to open a Sony Vaio Laptop case?

  1. Hello,

    I've tried searching for help on opening up a Sony Vaio PCG-GRV670 laptop
    case without any success. I'm hoping that someone here may have some
    pointers or a link that may be of help.

    The reason that I need to open up the case is that the power connector
    socket has apparently broken away from the motherboard. This is evidenced by
    wiggling the connector with the power cord plugged into it. Doing so, will,
    on occasion, allow the laptop to boot. Once it is up and running it will
    work for a while, however, it eventually loses AC power, which, I suspect is
    due to heat building up at the bad connection, unless you wiggle the
    connector again.

    I've had almost the whole thing apart before, but couldn't get to the
    underside of the motherboard where I need to solder the connector. I didn't
    want to break anything, so I put it back together and started searching

    Hopefully, if I can get the case open, I'll be able to solder the connector
    and fix it permanently.

    Thanks in advance to those who post a reply to the group.

    There are some instructions for various models here:

    It seems like lots of the models, but not any GRV's sadly, just GRT
    and GRX...
