How do I remove base cover from X61 lenovo Thinkpad laptop

Q: How do I remove base cover from X61 lenovo Thinkpad laptop

I received a laptop from my father and the fan needs to be replaced. But I cannot figure out how to remove the cover. There are no screws at all on the base, even under the rubber feet. There appears to be some kind of security lock on the right side but I have no key. Or it is a slot for a lock cable. I have a picture of the bottom of the laptop if somebody needs it, as well as other pics.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Trying to figure out how I can go about ordering this since mine has become damaged. I found the part here: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-... Guess I can use 5CB0V79343, or 01YU722 as an alternative. Can't figure out how to order it though through the website and not finding much online when I Google the part number. How can I go about ordering one?

Hello, I have a Lenovo Yoga 710 15 80V50000U laptop and I am trying to add memory. I have opened the back but there seems to be a metal box/cover around the ram that I can't figure out how to remove. There are several groups (of 2) clips around each side of the metal cover and also many holes on the top/sides. Do I remove it by prying the clips and/or removing screws? If there are screws, I don't see them, could they be inside those little holes (and if so which holes)?  Thank you, Jan

A:Lenovo Yoga 710 (Remove Internal RAM Cover) - How Do I Remove It?

Looks like you'll need a wedge tool to pry open the cover. I suggest starting on one corner, then the next. If you don't have a wedge tool, try using a ruler carefully.

Hey,

Lately I've been experiencing unexpected shutdowns, so I figured the best thing to do was to clear the layer of dust from my heat sink. Unfortunately for me, my computer model (see below) requires that I disassemble the entire laptop to reach the heat sink and fan. Currently, I need to remove the laptop top cover assembly, but it simply won't budge. If I try to lift it up from the edges, it feels like something is holding it in place in the middle, even though I've unscrewed everything from top to bottom.

How do I get it off? Has anyone ever experienced this before??

Hello, I have a HP Omen 17 Laptop (HP - 17-w151nr).  I am trying to figure out how to remove the six rubber screw covers to expose the screws to unscrew them and open my laptop to add a hard drive.  The difficulty that I am having is that the screw covers are flushed with the back of the laptop case and also tiny.  The screw covers are talked about on page 36 and diagrammed on page 37 in Laptop's Maintenance and Service Guide.  Is there a way to remove the screw covers without damaging them, like maybe using particular tool or method?  Or do I need to stab something pokie into the rubber screw covers and try to pull or dig them out (...not sure how big the rubber screw covers are going down within the case and how much digging out I would have to do)?  If I have to destroy screw covers to get to the screws, are there replacements sold by HP Store? -Charles

Use a jewelers screwdriver to gently remove the plugs. Yes, HP does sell the plugs, but not via the online store. Use HP PartSurfer to get the part number then search online for a vendor.

I volunteered to help a friend upgrade the memory and SSD in their Yoga 460. I've worked on a lot of older ThinkPads, and the HMM made it look pretty easy. But when it says "pry" off the bottom cover, they are not kidding! Unfortunately I'd misplaced my spudgers, so I used an old credit card to help pry the cover off. In the process I broke one of the clips near the power connector. I think I pushed the credit card inward a little too hard. The machine went back together OK, but of course there is now a tiny gap where that clip isn't holding it. My friend treats computers fairly roughly and may not care, but it's bugging me a bit. I should have looked more closely before putting the machine back together, but now I don't remember whether the clip I broke off is part of the base cover or part of the piece it snaps onto (the keyboard bezel?). Would anyone happen to know? If the clip was part of the base cover it would be pretty easy to get a new one and replace it. Thanks!

Hello, I am a certified repair technician for a large company. I am also Lenovo certified through my company for warranty repairs. We have ran into an issue with a T450 laptop we have not seen before.  The system came in with a no POST issue. We unplugged the internal and external battery and did the reset by pressing and holding the power button and the small micro switch on the system board for 30 seconds. System would not POST so we ordered a new system board. The new board will NOT work with the bottom base cover installed. It will work with the base off, but as soon as it is put on again, the system does not POST. We then have to unplug both batteries and reset the board in order to even get it POST again (with or without batteries). It does work, with base installed, and no batteries plugged in. However, it also works with batteries installed, and no base cover.  What is causing this problem? We have tried other batteries and bases with no resolution.

Hello everyone, hope we're all well! I'm hoping someone can help me! I recently got a HP Pavilion 15-aw065sa and I love it. I decided to upgrade the SSD, and sadly in doing so, have slightly cracked the underside plastic (about an inch along from the middle of the rear towards the centre of the case). It's not a biggie, but I'd really know if there is anywhere (be it HP or someone else) where I can PAY MONEY (to a limit, lets not go silly, it's just a piece of plastic) to get a replacement. I'm also looking at getting an optical HDD caddy, so a DVD drive front replacement would be useful too! If anyone can help please let me know, it's a great laptop! EDIT: Should mention I checked the part surfer, as well as ebay, and sadly can't find anything

I send them the photos of uninstalled parts (1 & 2) 
I asked Dell to have the price for these two parts.
I wanted to purchase these two "Display BackCover & base assembly " (with some attachments on them)

The Display BackCovly was easily uninstalled , with the guide of the user-manual doc.

As is common on hybrid systems, the entire top assembly is fused together with adhesive.  It's all but impossible to disassemble the upper assembly without destroying the glass, LCD and/or defacing the back plastic - as Dell informed you, the entire upper half of the system must be replaced as a single unit.
You'll find this design very common these days on all systems of this type.

I've been trying to contact Taiwan Lenovo's warranty registration team that sometime in the second week of June, someone suddenly placed a "Loaner Machine" warranty upgrade on my Thinkpad T460s (Upgrade type P2L) without my authorization. The description of the P2L upgrade is"This product is entitled to loaner machine support for up to 1 year in which actual support duration follows machine's base warranty. Loaner machine is available for customer with repair service exceed 3 business days turnaround time. This service is limited to in-warranty service claim and exclude out of warranty, customer induced damage or machine DOA. Any damage to the loaner machine will be charged to the customer." The laptop was purchased in March, so I was not happy about this mysterious upgrade that suddenly appears 2.5 months later. In fact, I can isolate its sudden appearance to be between 6/3 to 6/9.Additionally, this upgrade has been preventing my ability to purchase a warranty extension on Taiwan Lenovo's website.I contacted Lenovo Taiwan about this, and they said that this is a special favor for all Lenovo Taiwan customers starting from the beginning of the year. However, a friend of mine has a Thinkpad purchased from Lenovo Taiwan in February, and it doesn't have this mysterious upgrade that appears out of no where.In any case, Taiwan Lenovo refuses to remove this upgrade, saying that I could call them if I want to purchase warranty extensions.
