    I've been trying to get the bottom case off the subject laptop. Removed ALL the screws but something is still holding it in the area of the back panel. What am I missing?:eek:

    Have you removed all the plastic bump stops? There is usually one that runs along the top edge that has a few screws under it.

    There are non such. I removed the rubber bumpers (feet) from the bottom to look for hidden screws; there are none.

    Thanks, that would have been useful. As it happened, I got my head screwed on and figured it out myself. One must remove the keyboard from the topside to get at screws hidden underneath.

    And all that just to replace the power jack on the MB, which I now discover isn't for sale online.

    Thanks again! I didn't think of that. Just bought one there for $1,75 (total!)
