Step Lines

-[* black] Now. Before you want to use your common sense to dive in deep, disconnect the wires.
-[* black] At least the ribbon cable for the data board, the power socket, and the batteries.
-[* black] Don't forget about the keyboard's TWO wires-the "keys" and the backlight. I snagged my backlight cable (not due to unawareness of its presense).
-[* black] Use a tweezer/opener on the cable housing, but it's OKAY to use hand as long as you are gentle.
-[* black] Remove the screws as you go through, but KEEP THEM!
+[* black] The ribbon cable connects basically half of the machine to the other.
+[* black] Electricity from the plug is directly connected to the motherboard through a plug beneath it.
+[* black] Don't forget about the keyboard's TWO cables-the "keys" and the backlight. They are held down by unnecessary adhesive. (but keep them there, so you won't snag them)
+[* black] Use a tweezer/opener on the cable housing, but it's OKAY to use hand as long as you are gentle. I would recommend ... plastic spoons.
