Disassembly and Unit ReplacementDisassembly and Unit Replacement4-1This chapter contains step-by-step procedures on how to disassemble the notebook computer for
maintenance and troubleshooting.
To disassemble the computer, you need the following tools:
· Wrist grounding strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge
· Flat-bladed screwdriver
· Phillips screwdriver
· Hexagonal screwdriver
· Plastic stickThe 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.
4.1 General Information
4.1.1 Before You Begin
Before proceeding with the disassembly procedure, make sure that you do the following:
1.Turn off the power to the system and all peripherals.
2.Unplug the AC adapter and all power and signal cables from the system.
3.Press the battery compartment cover release button and slide out the cover.
4.Pull out the battery pack using the pull loop at the end.

Disassembly and Unit Replacement4-3 4.1.2 Connector Types
There are two kinds of connectors on the main board:
· Connectors with no locks
Unplug the cable by simply pulling out the cable from the connector.
· Connectors with locks
You can use a plastic stick to lock and unlock connectors with locks.The cables used here are special FPC (flexible printed-circuit) cables, which are
more delicate than normal plastic-enclosed cables. Therefore, to prevent
damage, make sure that you unlock the connectors before pulling out the cables.
Do not force cables out of the connectors.
CONNECTORS WITH LOCKS· Unplugging the Cable
To unplug the cable, first unlock the connector by pulling up the two clasps on both sides of
the connector with a plastic stick. Then carefully pull out the cable from the connector.
· Plugging the Cable
To plug the cable back, first make sure that the connector is unlocked, then plug the cable into
the connector. With a plastic stick, press the two clasps on both sides of the connector to
secure the cables in place.Unplugging
Figure 4-2Using Connectors With LocksConnectors mentioned in the following procedures are assumed to be no-lock
connectors unless specified otherwise.

4-4Service Guide4.1.3 Disassembly Sequence
The disassembly procedure described in this manual is divided into four major sections:
· Section 4.2:Installing memory
· Section 4.3:Removing the modem board
· Section 4.4:Removing the hard disk drive
· Section 4.5:Removing the keyboard
· Section 4.6:Disassembling the inside frame assembly
· Section 4.7:Disassembling the display
The following table lists the components that need to be removed during servicing. For example, if
you want to remove the motherboard, you must first remove the keyboard, then disassemble the
inside assembly frame in that order.
