    I need to get the cover off to repair/replace the power jack. Are there hidden screws or other tricks?

    Welcome to the Forum.

    This would be worth $10:


    and this might work out for free:


    I've had my HP ZT1170 apart a couple of times. Apparently for the same reason as you...broken power plug.

    The first time it was split and loose from the board but still intact electrically. I repaired it with JB Weld epoxy.

    The next time the solder joint broke. I repaired it with a needle point low wattage iron. I would call it a poor design for a potentially stressed connection...I use it on my Lap not on a desk.

    Each time it was like the first...where is that hidden screw? Their engineers have a warped sense of humor.

    Also, I noted that the machine was available used for about $700. The MOBO replacement part is $470. Capitalism Lives!!!
