Thank you for posting this battery replacement guide! I’m not huge on computer tech stuff and because of the holidays a lot of repair shops were closed. So, I found this, the tools I needed and bought a battery off ebay and I did it myself. I saved so much time and money(i’m sure) because of these simple instructions. Although I have the 710-15IKB, everything was basically identical. Thank you !
