yes you can, might drop bit of performance if you have Hybrid power management on, buyed my laptop used its 4 years old now and was used 2 years, dont even checked used battery but removed it and using AC power, just after a while gonna need to replace vents…

also cooling is problem in summers, cut-off some plastics and using cooling pad (recommending with 3+ vents or good airflow)

Faut démonter TOUTES les vis ??? Je vais en perdre la moitié !

Bravo!! plus simple c’était pas possibles?

Dire qu’avant on avait une trappe coulissante d’acces (DELL) ..

Les PC portables MSI ne sont pas les pire à réparer, loin de là !

Par expérience, l’étape la plus délicate c’est d’arriver à enlever le capot car il est maintenu par des clips en plastique, après on a accès à pratiquement toutes les pièces sur ce modèle.

Aujourd’hui, les PC portables avec une trappe coulissante existent toujours, mais ils sont cher :)
