Step Lines

[* black] Close the screen and turn the closed laptop over.
[* black] Remove all 17 screws on the bottom of the computer.
[* icon_note] The multiple colors (turquoise, red, blue, orange, yellow, and purple) are for organizational purposes, indicating different screws.
-[* yellow] Your computer may have more if it still has its optical device, HDD, or battery. The yellow markers are the location of at least two extra screws that we don't have.
+[* yellow] The yellow marker at the rear denotes the UltraBay device retaining screw. This screw is optional as the UltraBay mechanism will hold the drive or battery in place anyway. The yellow marker at the front denotes the hard disk caddy retaining screw.
