Step Lines

[* black] With all of the before mentioned components removed, you can now start removing your motherboard. We recommend taking a picture of the back of the motherboard to keep track of which screws go where.
[* red] Use the same phillips head screw driver as previous steps to remove the highlighted eleven 4 mm red marked4mm screws from the motherboard.
[* orange] Remove the two 8 mm orange marked8mm screws and keep them separate. They are slightly longer than the rest of your screws and will need to be returned to their respective places.
[* yellow] The two 4 mm yellow marked4mm screws can be removed now, or in step 10. They are specific to the connection they are attached to and will need to be kept separate also.
