    Hi,
    I have this Advent 7079 laptop (aka ECS G600). It's dead to the world.
    I suspect that the power socket has been strained to breaking point.
    I'm completely new to laptop repair and while I can see the learning
    potential for taking the whole thing apart, I'm trying to minimize the
    extent of the strip down for component safety sake.
    I managed to locate an exploded diagram but no sequential instructions
    for disassembly.
    power socket by removing components starting from the bottom. But
    having removed the screws from this part of the case, it's still
    firmly held in place. This is not so surprising as there are many
    sockets of various kinds protruding, at least partially, through both
    sides of the lower case moulding. There doesn't seem to be much chance
    of the case flexing enough to clear the sockets but I thought I'd ask
    here for tips on proceeding further. I put a picture at the following
    link, if anyone would be kind enough to look and offer some advice.
