Machine Disassembly and Replacement
This chapter contains step-by-step procedures on how to disassemble the notebook for maintenance and troubleshooting. To disassemble the computer, you need the tools below: • • • • • Wrist ground strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge Small Philips screw driver Flat head screw driver Hexagonal driver Tweezers

Note: The screws for the different components vary in size. During the disassembly process, group the screws with the corresponding components to avoid mismatch when putting back the components. When you remove the stripe cover, please be careful not to scrape the cover.

General Information
Before You Begin
Before proceeding with the disassembly procedure, you have to make sure that: 1. The system and all peripherals are powered off. 2. The AC adaptor and all power and signal cables from the system are unplugged. 3. The battery pack is removed. Note: There are several types of screws used to secure the main unit. The screws vary in length. Please refer to the screws table after the flowchart. Group the same type of screws together during service disassembling. Please also remember the screw location for each screw type. If you fasten the screws on the wrong location, the long screws may cause irrecoverable damage to the main board.
