How to open and fix an Azus laptop – no power

This laptop would not turn on. Often total electronic failures like a completely dead unit are easier to fix than if the computer only partially worked. The problem with this laptop was the broken connection behind the plug jack. It must have been yanked. To fix it I had to take it totally apart. It took just under 2 hours for me to complete it but I had no video guide to follow and I had never seen it done. So you should be able to do it much faster. If your laptop has no signs of power be sure that it is not just your AC adapter that is bad. I have a video on fixing that too. You should get a multimeter if you are going to work on electronics. Even walmart sells them for under $10. If you have questions just ask! Good luck!

Thanks for this video. I have probably same problem like in this video. Dissasembled it right now. But I have just a tiny tiny split. Need to push the charger cable with my finger
against laptop to have power. If I just forget it , all of a sudden it shuts off. Especially when gaming.

Is there a specific type of tape that needs to be used for the ribbon cable that is connected to the motherboard?

This is a good video, though I don't think I can come close to doing this with my ASUS. It pisses me off that they apparently design and manufacture these to have problems with the power port. Mine is only a couple of years old, has been gently used (no accidents, or anything to cause problems), but it will only intermittently acknowledge that it's plugged in, and won't charge the battery much of the time. This all started about a month ago, and I discovered that it's a widespread problem with ASUS computers in general. It's really annoying.
