Of course you need to remove them you Dingbat! They are the main anchors of the screen hinges, Doh!

There are tiny numbers showing the lengths of the screws. 1-2-3-4 where 1 is the shortest.

The dark red circles are not very easy to see. How about white ones?

  • Carefully maneuver the palm rest away from the keyboard, as both the keyboard and palm rest/trackpad will come off together.

    • Remember, both the keyboard and trackpad have connectors to the motherboard. Disconnect these before completely removing either component.

Just use the pic numbering left to right each of the 4 rows.

Start at the top and remove in sequence, placing each on a strip of heavy tape to keep the screws in sequence.

Place a second strip on top when finished to secure the sequence until it's time to re-assemble.

Very poor & sketchy guide! NO mention at all of how to handle the other wires involved in disconnecting the screen (lid) from the laptop base, eg: the wireless antenna connections and instructions like: "Unscrew the screws holding it down" are far too vague! holding WHAT down ffs!!!!
