This guide will walk you through removing and replacing your Dell Inspiron 17R-N7110 DC power jack. You will be handling delicate electronic components during this process, so be sure to wear the anti-static wrist strap for the entirety of the replacement. You should also be aware that the screen is very heavy on this device, so you need to be careful to support it in order to keep the laptop from falling over.

    • Flip over and open your device. Gently wedge the metal Jimmy into the rightmost hole at a 45-degree angle. Make sure that the Jimmy is between the silver metal portion of the keyboard and the silver plastic edge around the keyboard.

    • Tilt the metal jimmy away from you to pry up the edge of the keyboard.
