  2. Remove the Keyboard and disconnect the two flex cables: Keyboard flex cable Keyboard Light flex cable
  3. Remove 4x phillips screws and disconnect: Power On button flex cable Touch pad flex cable
    • Remove 4x phillips screws and disconnect:

    • Power On button flex cable

    • Touch pad flex cable

    • Remove 18x Phillips screws from the bottom cover.

    • Remove any memory SD Card from the Card reader.

    • Start opening with a plastic opening tool.

    After removing the 18x Phillips screws, the laptop is VERY fragile in the hinge area. The bottom cover will easily crack or break in the hinge area when opening the laptop with no screws, particularly the left side near the power button. Possibly this step should be revised to recommend opening the laptop 90 degrees before removing the 18x screws. Or, advise extreme caution when opening the laptop with no screws.

    Hi, do you know where buy screws that you mention in step 4? “Remove 18x Phillips screws from the bottom cover.”

    I am italian. Thank you anyway.

    The laptop I have included 6x screws from inside and 16x screws from the bottom. This seems to be a minor variation from model to model.

    In my unit, there was also a screw holding the DVD drive in place, just toward the center from the drive itself. This screw also had to be removed to be able to remove the upper cover

Good job! What a pain, though, to swap the HDD :)

I am currently working on this laptop and it doesn't open at all like this one. This is only one back... and 18 screws holding it on. I can partially snap the back off but i can't pry it apart by the dvd drive. I'm also guessing the same model is manufactured differently for different retailers. (This happens in the retail hardware world where a dewalt drill from home depot will be made cheaper than a dewalt from ace hardware) so now I"m stuck. any ideas would be helpful. thanks.

ok found the problem. i accidentally popped out the dvd drive (when I was just trying to open it lol) and up under the lip I found three 1/8" long very-flat head screws. unscrewed those and the back came right off.

I removed the screws on the back of the thing up by the screen thinking I’d have to pry the back off before finding this tutorial. I didn’t replace them when I had the keyboard off and went to move the lid and somehow the corner of the screen bezel caught on the hinge area and cracked like an egg. I don’t know if I’m even going to bother trying the swap the drive now but I thought I’d warn anyone who has one of these old junkers to not make my mistake.
