    im going to be tearing this laptop down completely to replace the faulty dc power jack, taking it apart is easy enough but i would like this manual to reference when i reassemble it. ive been through hp's website and many pages off google and all the sites i found want payment for a download, and i dont have a credit card for that...shouldnt this be available somewhere? if anyone can help me out i would be very grateful, thank you.

    edit: also if you know any guides or any info that could help me with the soldering of the replacement that would be awesome...

    edit2: oh and fyi the actual laptop is a zt1175

    The best advice i can give you is to get some paper, draw out a layout of what went were, and place the relevant screws on that section of the diagram. Just don't knock it over!

    just thought id let you guys know i found the service manual here,

    http://www.elhvb.com/mobokive/edwin/laptops/HP/Omnibook xt1500.pdf

    i have a quick question, figured id ask here instead of making a new thread, the heatsink has a pad on it, when i go to reinstall should i remove it and use compound or am i supposed to reuse this thermal pad? thanx for all the input.

    replace it as the pad will be damaged when heatsink is removed from cpu.

    edit: sorry its a cavity

    a nick...but i put everything together....but my temps are to high....when i start the pc temp is in high 30's....but after awhile it reaches high 50's, havent seen 60's yet....but i read so many guides and some said to apply the small half grain of rice and spread it evenly with a credit card...thats what i did...should i try the other route ala put the half grain in the middle of the chip and then just put the sink on and let it spread naturaly? because i did the best i could but i dont think i spread it on very evenly...anyways im gonna go back in and re apply the compound but what way is the best?
