After determining the problem on the Troubleshooting guide, the Back Panel guide will show you how to remove the back of the laptop. This guide will be used as a precursor to the hard drive, keyboard, and RAM removal.
No parts required.
Power down the computer and unplug the power adapter.
Flip the laptop upside down. Locate the two latches on both sides of the battery.
Slide the latch on the right outwards, releasing the lock. The latch stays unlocked once moved.
Simultaneously slide the latch on the left outwards while pulling the battery towards you.
Remove the single captive screw on the back panel with your Phillips #1 screwdriver.
Pry the removal tab up. You will feel and hear the first clip release, popping up slightly.
Work your way around the border of the panel, releasing the rest of the clips.
Once all clips are released, lift the cover up and pull towards you.
