Lenovo ThinkPad E14 has been released for a long time, and there is no guide on how to upgrade the memory and SSD on the Internet. Today we will show you how to upgrade the memory and M.2 SSD for your ThinkPad E14. This guide applies to all E14 models, including the Intel version and AMD version.
Before starting the upgrade work, you need to start and enter BIOS, and then disable the battery, this is also to ensure the safety of your laptop.
First, turn the laptop over and place it on the table with the back facing up. Then use a screwdriver to loosen all the visible screws, please note that the screws cannot be removed. They are fixed on the back cover.
After all the screws are loosened, use a plastic crowbar or an old card to slowly pry the back cover. The easier way is to pry it from the LCD hinge.
As you can see in this picture, there are many snaps on the back cover. There is a thermal pad on the pre-installed SSD position to assist in heat dissipation, but there is no thermal pad reserved on the extended SSD position.
From this picture, you can see most of the internal components, including fan, wireless network card, battery, speaker, memory, SSD, and motherboard
