This chapter contains step-by-step procedures on how to disassemble the notebook computer for maintenance and troubleshooting.

Disassembly Requirements

To disassemble the computer, you need the following tools:

  • Wrist grounding strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge
  • Flat screwdriver
  • Philips screwdriver
  • Plastic flat screwdriver
  • Plastic 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.
