Introdução

This guide is relatively straight-forward as there are only few screws holding the speaker in place. The most difficult parts of this guide are the prerequisites; removing the keyboard, as well as separating the display from the motherboard.

  1. Turn the laptop over and locate the lock  and battery release switches. Unlock the battery by changing the switch on the right from locked to unlocked by sliding the switch outward.

    • Make sure to turn off the laptop, unplug the device and/or remove any batteries.

    • Open the laptop so the display screen is bent fully back with the display facing upward, parallel to the surface you are working on.

    • Wedge the Phillips 00 screwdriver above the F1 key, and separate the top piece of plastic from the body of the laptop. Don't worry about breaking it! You will need to forcefully wedge the screwdriver under the plastic, simultaneously pushing upward and forward.

    • Once that section has popped up, work on pulling the rest of the plastic piece up and out, alternating from left to right.

    • On the top half of the disassembled laptop (the part that is connected to the display) use the #1 Phillips Screw Driver to remove the four 5mm screws holding the speakers in place.

    • Once the screws have been removed, simply lift the two individual speakers out of their positions.

    • The wires that connect the speakers to the rest of the components should have been disconnected when taking the top case off.

    • Once the speaker wires have been disconnected, the screws unscrewed, and the speakers removed you should be left with these two components.

    • Reminder: Do not confuse the two speakers. The red wire of one speaker means it is the positive receiver and the black wire means it is the negative receiver.
