For this project I used:
- Laptop screwdriver set
- Plastic spudgers (find 'em here). These come in handy for opening various electronics
I started by removing the battery and the cd rom. There are some silver screws under the battery and that are visible once you remove the cd/dvd rom as well.
<There are a couple of other screws to remove.
<Now flipping the laptop over, we have to release the tabs to remove the keyboard.
Once you release the keyboard tabs and gently pry up the keyboard, you should see the attached keyboard and touchpad ribbon cables. Carefully disconnect these as follows:
<The metal hinge screws
Plastic hinge covers>
<VGA camera cable.
