Step 5 is about removing the cover which protects the processor from any outside damage
The cover is attached to four pins. In order to remove the cover, it has to be pulled towards the left.
: There may be a plastic (rubber) pin (see Image 2), which was put in place for guarantee purposes, therefore before sliding the panel, you should locate and remove this pin
It can also be pushed from the inside (by lifting the bottom of the cover first) (see image 3)
Remove Red and Yellow marked screws
The Red are small black screws shown on the second image
The processor holding screws are marked as yellow and have to be removed
Green- pins which hold the motherboard in place
In order to remove the motherboard, pull it (as shown on the third image) It should now slide on the pins which are marked as green.
