    [Hints] Disassemble your laptop

    In case someone decide to disassemble own laptop (upgrade or fix
    something), but has no clue where to start or afraid to screw something up,
    it's always a good idea to follow a proper manual.

    What you could do is to look for a documentation at the website of Original
    design manufacturer/Original equipment manufacturer. Two major players are
    Quanta and Compal.

    If someone needs a clarification about what ODM is and such, check out these
    links:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Origina...n_Manufacturer

    http://tuxmobil.org/laptop_oem.html

    Last link, as well, provides means to find an information about the
    manufacturer of your laptop, in particular.

    One way to do it is to, carefully (read: close the lid, hold in both hands),
    put your laptop upside down, and look for a sticker with "Model Name:",
    "Rating:", etc. fields on it.

    Those of you who own panv3 may download the documentation from here:

    http://www.compal.com/asp/driver_dnd/index.htm

    Download Site - Drivers - IFL91,

    Folder Name: Manual - service manual - IFL91 INTEL -

    IFL91_ch5-Disassembly Guide-intel.pdf

    Good luck!

    Thanks, pauper.

    Also, you can call us up and we can walk you through most stuff.
    We've got all of the laptop models in the shop and know some little
    tricks-of-the-trade that might be helpful.
    To err is human, to forgive is very ... dog-like.

    Yeah, emailing system76 is a lot quicker and better. Tom gave excellent help when I was upgrading my CPU.
