Introduction

This installment requires removing a few screws and separating the plastic cover of the laptop allowing you to access the CD/DVD drive. Removing the cover will take a little bit of prying, but make sure to not force anything as you don't want to crack it.

  • Use the plastic opening tool to separate the top faceplate.

    • The faceplate consists of the entire shiny plastic surface and the holed metal center where the keyboard would normally be.

  • Carefully pry the faceplate away from the laptop's base by sliding the plastic opening tool around the perimeter of the entire device. You'll hear the sound of several clicks as you do this.

    • Prying apart the faceplate will take a little convincing, but be sure to not bend it too much. It would be a shame to put a crack in its glossy shine.
