Introduction

To start, you will need to remove the bottom case of the lapdock. Then you will need to unscrew the left speaker of the lapdock in order to unfasten the motherboard in later steps. Then there will be two screws that you will need to remove in order to free the motherboard from the lapdock. Be sure that all connections to the lapdock components are unplugged before removing the motherboard.
