Introduction

If you have a battery that is no longer in working order then you will need to replace the battery. It is not as simple as removing it after taking off the cover. You will need a couple removal tools for reaching the battery. There are no hazards for this particular repair.

    • Slide one of the plastic opening tools in the crack on the side of the device with the windows button.

    • Slide the other plastic opening tool facing the opposite way in the crack next to the first one and pry the back cover off a little bit at a time or slide them around the edge as necessary.

    • Finally, slide the two plastic opening tools all around the case until it is open.

  2. Unscrew the three black, 4mm screws with a phillips screwdriver size PH 0 (one of which is under the gold colored ribbon cable.)

    • Unscrew the three gray, 3mm screws with the same screwdriver (phillips screwdriver size PH 0.)

    • Unplug the connector the connects the battery to the mother board.

      • Make sure to use a plastic opening tool instead of a metal spudger to avoid any unnecessary accidental shorting out of components.
