Performed on a 5479-6413, several screws that needed to be removed are not indicated in this picture - suffice it to say "remove all visible screws." The hint about the audio jacks was useful, but they are on the bottom right of the photo, the front of the machine not the back.

May need to expand the "apply heat paste to center" section. Need to remove old paste first, etc. etc. A good bird's eye view intro, though

Seemed like I was going to rip the motherboard up where the usb ports are by the audio connector, why isn't the %#*@ thing screwed down? Lol If I push down by the audio connector like you mention and pull it up from the other side will ot be fine, felt and looked like I might snap the board.
