Einleitung

The hard drive is where a computer permanently stores information, making it very important. A broken or damaged hard drive must be replaced to restore proper functioning.

Ersatzteile

Kein Ersatzteil erforderlich.

Power off and unplug your laptop before you begin.
  • Power off and unplug your laptop before you begin.

  • Turn the laptop upside-down and remove the following screws using a Phillips #0 driver:

    • Two 9.5 mm screws in the middle of the back edge, and one 9.5 mm screw in the right edge

    • Two 4.3 mm screws in the back corners

    • One 17.5 mm screw at the left edge near the optical drive

    • Three 4.3 mm screws in the front edge

screw assignments are definitely wrong. I swapped the red and the green, as per comment above, and kept the blue as-is.

Thanks everyone. It does seem like someone got their screws mixed up when they wrote this guide. I’ve made some changes as you all suggested, so the screw placements should be more accurate now. If anyone with this laptop could verify the screw measurements with a digital caliper, that’d also be very helpful.

Use the plastic opening tool to separate the keyboard plate cover from the bottom cover. In order to do this, insert the plastic opening tool in between the keyboard plate cover and the bottom cover, then slide along edges to pry open.

Don't remove the ribbons, just move the keyboard slightly forward to remove the old battery and insert the new one (just make sure they are all connected when you put it back)

Now that the ribbons have been detached from the bottom cover, carefully remove the keyboard plate cover. Once it has been removed, place it in a safe and moisture free area so it does not get damaged.

Is painting your nails crucial for step 5?

Now, that is a stupid question! Of course! As I am working on 551M, I naturally have to have nails painted orange, with blue accents!

You mixed up the red and green screws, sizes are wrong.

The red screws are 9.5 not 14.3!

the yellow screws are 4.3 (mixed up with 14.3 ?) not 9.5 !

You do NOT need to remove the ribbons, just use a small screwdriver.

Excellent work !

Same issue as Tony on 09/03/2014

The screw sizings are mixed up. The red screws are 9.5, not 14.3

The yellow screws are 14.3 not 9.5. Please fix the repair guide text

Mevlan Coma - Antwort

It should be fixed now! Thanks to both of you for the tip. By the way, you can always edit the text yourself. ;)
