Have you noticed that your laptop gives off an excessive amount of heat? Would you like to try a clean fan to see if it improves but you don’t know how to do this? Have you decided to upgrade the RAM or the hard disk of your laptop but, before you buy the components you need for the upgrade, you want to be sure that you know how to open the laptop? Well, it’s not that simple. If you don’t have a laptop, you can read this article to choose one.
The problem is that each PC has a different structure and, therefore, has its own way of being opened and reaching the various internal components. If you don’t know how to disassemble a laptop however, you can consult some internet sites that include guides on how to open all the most popular notebook / laptop models and advice on how to repair / replace the various hardware components. I’ll point you to some.
If you want to know how to disassemble a laptop, the first site I recommend you visit is iFixIt . It’s only available in English but don’t be scared, every guide is in fact full of photos and diagrams that illustrate, step by step, all the operations you must do in a simple way. Look, there’s no need to even explain how it works.
All you need to do is go to the main page and select the brand first and then the model of laptop you want. You can then choose from all the tutorials available for the selected computer, each of which relate to a different hardware component (e.g. Fan for the fan, Hard drive for hard drive, RAM and so on), and view all the information you need to carry out the task.
Another site that I recommend you visit if you’re about to take apart a laptop is Future Proof , which contains hundreds of manuals on maintenance and repair of various models of laptops / notebooks. Again, it’s an English site but their contents are also useful for those who don’t understand the language very well.
Don’t forget to take a quick tour of the manufacturer’s website for the computer you want to disassemble (e.g. HP , Dell , ASUS, etc.) to download the official manual. Although it’s difficult to find detailed instructions on how to disassemble the computer, it may contain technical information and information about the laptop components which you might find useful.
Finally, I recommend the timeless YouTube. Where the official guides and manuals don’t help, someone may have already dismantled their laptop and they may have published a video on the net to explain how it’s done. Search for [model of your laptop] disassemble or [model of your laptop] upgrade RAM, [model of your laptop] repair, etc. in the video search and you’ll almost certainly find something interesting.
