Logic Board

Before you begin, remove the following:

  • Rear cover

  • Keyboard cover
  • Display assembly
  • Keyboard
  • Trackball/numeric keypad
  • All option cards

Caution: Review the ESD precautions in Bulletins/ Safety.

Outline of Logic Board —

1 Disconnect the following cable connectors from the logic board:

  • Input device cable from J1 3
  • Input device cable from J20
  • Battery cable from J1 7
  • Hard drive cable from J1 8
  • Lower floppy drive cable from J1 4

Take Apart

Caution: Do not lift the subframe too far. Lifting too far puts excess strain on the subframe and logic board and could damage both.

2 Using a flat-blade screwdriver, pull the latch from the subframe. When the latch is clear, lift the left side of the frame.







Hold the left side of the subframe up—far enough to keep it from being held by the clip—and press in the clip at the right front of the subframe. Lift the subframe a little further.

Using a flat-blade screwdriver, release the plastic latch at the right side of the subframe.

Subframe (Upside Down)

To remove the subframe from the bottom case, lift the front of the subframe and pull it toward you.

Place the subframe upside down.
