Introducción

This laptop has a strange engineering design. To change the Hard Disk drive you must fully disassemble it. There is not an HDD cover like on other laptops. In this manual we will show you how to do this.

    • Be careful with these two connectors:

    • between motherboard and the additional charging port board,

    • between motherboard and the additional WiFi card slot, USB connectors board.

    • Start removing the motherboard from right side, near to the DVD drive connector.

  6. Finally you can find the hard disk drive on the back side of the motherboard. Remove the last two screws securing the hard drive. There are two strips of foam to prevent shock under the hard drive, which may stick to the drive due to heat—so, pull slowly away from the SATA connector so you don't damage any components.

Thank You for labeling what each of the flex cables is for. If there is an issue with the laptop after reassembly it will make finding the lose cable easier.

Truly this laptop was designed by a madman with no regard for easy of disassembly/reassembly.

My model seemed to be slightly different and I couldn't get the upper case off from the side. I started from the top left near the power button.

My model was also just a little different. There were two screws holding a bracket to the MB located on the upper edge of the hard drive in your final picture. I had to remove these two screws and then there were 4 screws mounting this bracket to the HD. Also there was some adhesive strips on the under side of the hard drive that stuck the HD to the MB. I had to slowly pull the hard drive from the SATA connector.
