Remove 4x phillips screws and disconnect: Power On button flex cable Touch pad flex cable
  • Remove 4x phillips screws and disconnect:

  • Power On button flex cable

  • Touch pad flex cable

  • Remove 18x Phillips screws from the bottom cover.

  • Remove any memory SD Card from the Card reader.

  • Start opening with a plastic opening tool.

After removing the 18x Phillips screws, the laptop is VERY fragile in the hinge area. The bottom cover will easily crack or break in the hinge area when opening the laptop with no screws, particularly the left side near the power button. Possibly this step should be revised to recommend opening the laptop 90 degrees before removing the 18x screws. Or, advise extreme caution when opening the laptop with no screws.
