Introdução

This guide will show how to remove the keyboard from the computer. By removing the keyboard, users will be able to access the inner workings of the computer. This guide is an important prerequisite for a few of the other guides. Remember to always power down the computer before attempting any installation/removal of any hardware components. Be sure to remove the AC adapter and all cables from the computer. If the computer has been on, wait several minutes before beginning the procedure to ensure all parts have cooled down.

    • Slightly lift the palm rest away from the computer.

      • The touchpad's data cable connects the palm rest to the base unit. BE CAREUL!

    • Detach the connector by pulling upwards on the white tab.

    Putting it back on should be covered too, as it’s really hard to get everything lined up. Would be nice for some tips on that. Took me and other experienced guy 45 minutes to get the thing back on, and have all the screws seat!
