Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Proper laptop disassembly, part of CompTIA A+ Exam Prep (220-901) Part 6: Laptops and Mobile Devices.
- Dismantling a laptop can be a pretty scary experience…and there's good reasons to be wary.…Laptops are very very dense in terms of their equipment.…They have very non-standardized screws.…It's easy to miss one or two little connections…and really mess the system up…so you need to be careful…but as long as you're careful,…it's a very very simple process…detailed in terms of making sure you do certain things…but the actual process of taking things out…is pretty simple.…
Now, there's always going to be some kind of cover…and I've already taken the one screw off…of my Dell laptop that allows me to get into this thing.…Now, you're not going to be going into here just for fun.…You're going to be going in for a reason.…You'd know that for example,…your wireless network card isn't working…or your monitor's gone out…or you're having problem with RAM.…There is something in there…that's motivating you to dig into this system…and that's fine.…One of the best things you can do…is that most manufacturers provide repair manuals…
