Battery Installation

Slide the battery into the laptop until it clicks into place Move the locking clip into the locked position

Keyboard Installation

Place a cloth over the laptop's screen to prevent scratches then lay the keyboard on top of the screen face-up. Position the keyboard so that you can insert the ribbon cable into the slot. Make sure that the brown pin is pushed out before you insert the ribbon cable

Ensure that the ribbon cable is fully seated
Push the brown pins on either side in with either a small screw driver or your fingernail. Ensure that the cable does not back out while doing so Move the keyboard down into place, making sure that the tabs along the bottom of the keyboard are seated
Due to the tabs on either side of the keyboard, the easiest way to fully seat the keyboard is to lift up slightly at the middle of the keyboard, then press on the far-right edge until it clicks into place Do the same thing with the left side of the keyboard
Reinstall the five screws that hold the keyboard in place Position the bezel in place with the edge closest to the screen being installed first
Press down along the top of the bezel working from the middle out until it clicks into place Reinstall the two screws on the bottom of the laptop to secure the keyboard in place

At this point, simply install the battery and the laptop is ready for use.

Hard Drive Installation

Before installing a new hard drive, be sure to move both the thin plastic sheet from the old drive to the new one.

Insert the back of the hard drive into the laptop. It needs to slide under the panel slightly in order for the front of the drive to properly drop into place Drop the front end of the drive into the laptop and slide the drive up until it is fully seated into the SATA connector
Reinstall the cover plate by positioning the tabs along the bottom first then pivoting the cover down onto the laptop Reinstall the two screws that secure the cover in place

When this is completed, simply install the battery to complete the hard drive replacement.

RAM Installation

Insert the RAM into the slot at a 45° angle Gently press down on the RAM until it clicks into place
Repeat this process for the second stick  

When this is completed, install the back panel and battery to complete the RAM replacement.

WiFi Card Installation

Insert the WiFi card into the slot at a 45° angle Gently hold down the card and reinstall the single screw to secure the card in place
Reattach the antenna by simply pressing them into place Endure that the antenna are positioned so that they are not on top of the SD card slot which may cause a problem with the back panel

When this is completed, install the back panel and battery to complete the WiFi card replacement.

CPU Installation

Drop the CPU into place. If it does not fully seat, verify that the locking screw is in the unlocked position Turn the locking screw 90° while gently holding down the CPU to lock the CPU in place
Apply a thin line of thermal paste across the CPU die Only a small amount of thermal paste is necessary as the pressure of the heatsink will spread it across the CPU die
Drop the heatsink into place Reinstall the three screws labeled 1-3 in order

When this is completed, install the back panel and battery to complete the CPU replacement.

Back Panel Installation

First, plug the fan into the header on the motherboard This header is keyed so the plug can only go in one way
Drop the back panel into place starting with the side closest to the edge of the laptop Reinstall the four screws that hold the back panel in place

Optical Drive Installation

Remove the faceplate from the new drive by first depressing the clip shown and gently separating the faceplace from the drive Depress the clip on the other side of the drive to fully remove the faceplate
Install the faceplate that goes with the laptop by simply pressing it onto the drive until it clicks into place Install the mounting bracket onto the new drive
Slide the drive into the laptop Gently press it into place. The last quarter inch will have a bit more resistance as the drive makes the power/data connection to the laptop
