Every make and model of laptop I have worked on has been different.

Many require you remove the keyboard to access additional screws that are holding the body together.

You might find some helpful diagrams here.


However if you don't have experience doing notebook disassembly, you might want to take it to some who does.

If you still decide to disassemble your own notebook:
Be carefull!
Be patient!
Syudy the diagrams if they are available. Screws, tab, connectors, are often hidden and / or difficult to see or reach.

It is very easy to break something.

Replacement parts are hard to aquire.
