    Arrgh! I have a Gateway Solo 1450 which works great EXCEPT the power connection on the back is loose, so I can't use the AC adapter. Can I replace this?? How do I open the back?? I have taken out all the screws, but there is something holding the back on at the power supply.

    Thanks

    Hi and welcome. Check the manual on Gateway's website. Hopefully it isn't under warranty, otherwise you may void it by tinkering.

    Had a similar thing happen on an HP. If I could get the plug in just so so, it would work. You may need some soldering skills once you break into it.
