• Remove the wafer and hinge screws. Remove all other screws on the bottom of the laptop.

• Turn over the laptop and lift the power button cover to expose the ribbon.

• Loosen the keyboard screws and lift the keyboard up, and then unplug the ribbon cable.

• Disconnect the Bluetooth, Display, Camera and Antenna wires.

• Remove the hinge screws and lift the display away from the base.
