Introdução

The RAM and CD/DVD drive are very easy to replace. There is no need to suffer a damaged or unreliable keyboard as this is quite easy to replace too.

    • Note: if the laptop you are working on is a very slightly different model it is possible that it will have a different number of screws in slightly different positions. The important thing is to note where the shorter screws come from so as to avoid inserting a longer screw in its place on reassembly.

    • Remove a 5mm screw to the left of the RAM sockets, then pull out the CD/DVD drive. (Not necessary if you are only replacing the keyboard.)

    • Remove a 5mm screw to the right and the rear of the RAM sockets. If you just want to replace the keyboard, skip to the next step.

    • If you are going to remove the hard disk, motherboard or fan, remove 4 3mm screws.

    • Remove 7 5mm screws. (There are 6 more at the rear which should be left.)

    • With a thin metal spudger you should now be able to release 4 clips along the top of the keyboard in order to lift it out.

    • If you find one or more of the tabs refuse to release, do not force it. You probably missed one (or more) of the screws in the bottom.

    • Lift the keyboard slightly from the back, disengaging its tabs along the front panel at the front. Turn it over towards you, taking care not to strain the ribbon.

    • Gently lift the locking bar on the ribbon socket and withdraw the ribbon. Put the keyboard aside.
