Introduction

Hello all,

In my opinion it is not the best laptop from HP. actualy its a difficult laptop to work on.

a expensive laptop for (inside) parts that could be better parts.. certainly for a hp laptop

i made this guide during night so it is not my best guide that i've written so far.

I hope it helps you fixing your hp envy m6 ..

good luck

first of all we are going to remove the bottom plastic plates and the battery I apologize for the bad light ( and my Englisch , my native language is dutch), i made this guide during night..

  • I apologize for the bad light ( and my Englisch , my native language is dutch), i made this guide during night..

  • after removing the battery and plates you will see the HDD, wifi m-sata module and RAM. You will also see the bios battery ( next to the HDD).

  • like always i advise you to make a map/plan of the laptop. where the screws were attached , where connectors are attached.. etc. I tape my screws to the map i draw. You can also use the magnetic project map here on ifixit.

  • Be very carefull removing the HDD connector it is not that strong

  • after you removed the connector, lift the hdd to one side and pull ( gently) it out.

  • also remove the connector ( flex cable) attached to the mainboard. see green circle in second picture.

  • to loosen this connector use a spudger to lift the lid (lid of connector.) up. do it very gently.

turn the laptop arround so you can open the lid. use a screwdriver or a spudger to push the little black "fingers" from the keyboard away from the case. If you do it right you'll hear clicks.

now the mainboard is free.
  • now the mainboard is free.

  • in this case you can remove the CPU cooler. ( the copper tubes) In that case remove the screws simultaneous.

  • You can add ( after cleaning the cpu and the copper with isopropyl alcohol.) some new thermal paste at the cpu and graphic chip.

  • If you add some thermal paste for the first time : be carefull ,only put a very smal drop of paste at the cpu and graphic chip.
