Of course you need to remove them you Dingbat! They are the main anchors of the screen hinges, Doh!

There are tiny numbers showing the lengths of the screws. 1-2-3-4 where 1 is the shortest.

The dark red circles are not very easy to see. How about white ones?

Carefully maneuver the palm rest away from the keyboard, as both the keyboard and palm rest/trackpad will come off together. Remember, both the keyboard and trackpad have connectors to the motherboard. Disconnect these before completely removing either component.

Just use the pic numbering left to right each of the 4 rows.

Start at the top and remove in sequence, placing each on a strip of heavy tape to keep the screws in sequence.

Place a second strip on top when finished to secure the sequence until it's time to re-assemble.

Very poor & sketchy guide! NO mention at all of how to handle the other wires involved in disconnecting the screen (lid) from the laptop base, eg: the wireless antenna connections and instructions like: "Unscrew the screws holding it down" are far too vague! holding WHAT down ffs!!!!
