STEP 1

I'll stat laptop disassembly with removing the keyboard.

Using a small flat head screwdriver carefully lift up the right side of the keyboard bezel.
Continue removing the bezel with your fingers.

   

STEP 2

After the bezel is removed you can access four screws securing the keyboard.
Remove all four screws.

   

STEP 3

Lift up the keyboard so you can access the cable connector underneath.

   

STEP 4

Unlock the connector by moving the white clip about 1-2 millimeters up.
DO NOT SEPARATE the white clip from the connector base. It must stay attached to the base.

 

   

STEP 5

Release the cable and remove the keyboard.

Now you can replace the keyboard with a new keyboard if needed.

   

STEP 6

Turn the laptop upside down and remove the hard drive and memory (RAM) covers.

   

STEP 7

Remove both memory modules.

   

STEP 8

There are two hard drives installed into my Qosmio X305 laptop.

Disconnect and remove the first hard drive.

   

STEP 9

Disconnect and remove the second hard drive.
