Introduction

Although there are several ways this task could be accomplished, this guide walks through the most appropriate steps to complete the task without damaging the fragile components. Read instructions carefully to reach success.

  1. The first step is to remove the battery from the laptop.
    • The first step is to remove the battery from the laptop.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to pull up the four metal latches in the battery cavity that is located on the bottom of the laptop.

    • Flip the laptop over, and open the display.

    • Use a plastic opening tool to lift the edge of the keyboard that is nearest to the screen.

een heel duidelijke uitleg. ik zal het zelf niet proberen. ben bang dat ik met ijn trillende vingers de boel kapot ga maken.
