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 . If you have questions just ask! Good luck!

  1. The power adapter and cable to my HP431 (with the battery removed) delivers power to the laptop as there is a light next to the jack when plugged in. While plugged in, when I press the POWER ON button, the light on the POWER button itself and the light on the WIFI button came up for a split second, then went off. No fan, nothing, just dead. This laptop had thermal shut down problem before, but I bought a cooling fan to rectify this overheating problem. This problem persists for the last several months, for a couple of times, I managed to turn it on, worked for several months, then it unexpected shut down. Do you think this is a power cable issue similar to the one shown on your video?
    Appreciate your comments.
