Found this laptop in a trash room a few days ago, all looks good and well so i'm thinking to turn it into a HTPC. One issue though, the power jack gives off a pretty nasty static sound every once in a while when plugging it in or out so i'm thinking it needs to be replaced/re-soldered. But for that to happen i need to reach it and it has me stumped. I followed this youtube vid which shows how to get to and remove basically everything else but no info on how to get to the power plug at the back.

Does anyone out there have any experience with this generation of Dell Vostros?

Many thanks in advance!
