I just tore one of these down, I think this guide is missing many steps …

(part 1) My advice to anyone who is tearing one of these down, take a picture of each step with your cell phone as if you are making a guide for yourself. Use a mat with a screw organizer, or some method of organizing screws, and organize them by each group. Don’t be afraid to take notes on the laptop using masking tape and a fine point sharpie. Take your time, if something won’t budge, remove more screws. (for example) On the left hinge, before you can remove the LCD assembly, you need to remove a small board that is hiding two screws underneath.

(part 2) If you take your time, and take a lot of pictures, and take notes, you’ll get ‘er done :) Follow your own guide backwards for reassembly. The “I fix it” guide at the top is really just a vague overview, lacking so many steps. It’s kinda helpful, but also kind of a joke. Tearing down this laptop may take as much as one hour your first time. When I tore mine down, the thermal paste was 8 years old and needed to be replaced. There was a warranty sticker on one screw for the heatsink / fan assembly, indicating that this 2012 laptop had probably never been torn down. OK, it’s Q4 2020 and I’m going to fix this 2012 gaming laptop, LOL. Will it play Fallout 4 ? w00t :)
