Toshiba Tecra M2 laptop

How to disassemble Toshiba Tecra M2. Repair laptop yourself instructions.

Toshiba Tecra M2 laptop is very similar to Toshiba Tecra M3 and share the same disassembly steps. Here's the main difference. Tecra M3 doesn't have a memory slot that you access from the bottom of the laptop as it's shown on the step 2. Both memory slots in Tecra M3 are located under the keyboard, as it shown on the step 3. All Tecra M3 users can use this guide.

Today I received an email from Renn - one of the Tecra M3 laptop owners. I think this information will be useful for all Tecra M3 users:
"First of all, thank you for your website. It was an invaluable resource when I needed to replace the keyboard on my Toshiba Tecra M3.
However, you say on your page for the Tecra M2 that the main difference between the M3 and the M2 is the location of the memory slots, and that otherwise, the instructions are the same for both. You also show on your page for keyboard removal that the keyboard should be disconnected by opening two connector clips. This is not quite correct for the M3. Instead of connector clips, the top of the attachment envelope holds the ribbon cable in place. In order to remove the keyboard, therefore, users need to place one finger on each side of the top of the attachment envelope and gently lift it. From here, the ribbon cable can be pulled out. (If installing a new keyboard, just slide in the end of the ribbon cable and press the attachment envelope back down.)
It took me a good half an hour to figure this out (this was my first foray into the interior of a laptop) and I thought that the addition of this fact would be a useful update to your site.
Again, thank you again for your site's help."
