Thanks for the guide however i think you missed the most important section (how to actually remove the cover to expose the ram etc. After removing the screws, how do i remove the back or the top?
you should separate the back cover with a crowbar, start from lcd hinge
I want only add RAM. and i dont want get down lcd hinge. It going without it ?
to add RAM, you do not need to get down lcd hinge, just remove the bottom case is ok
Okay thanks. But in some videos of HP pavilions . There first get down screws and upper case-where the keyboard is
can i change the core i5 to a core i7?
i have one and due to power problems it needs an IC marked MS5LE needs replacement … where can i buy it …. can’t find in online 🙁
