    Hi. I have a Compaq Presario 2103 laptop that won't charge. I think
    the problem is in the power jack. I have tried taking it apart to
    solder the jack, but apparently there are two screws in the middle of
    the computer that can't be accessed from the bottom or top. I think I
    see the bottom (not the head) of one screw beneath the plastic around
    where the memory plugs in. I think the heads of these two screws must
    be under the spacebar or under something else that is under the
    spacebar. Do you have any suggestions?

    See if the keyboard can be unclipped from the top. My Toshiba has a
    decorative section at the base of the keyboard that unclips to allow the
    keyboard to be lifted out.

    You need the factory service manual, which has step by step instructions.

    Thank you very much, Jim. This looks very helpful. It may convince me
    that I shouldn't try it, but even if I don't use the manual for this
    repair I'll probably find it useful in the future.
