In one frozen day of february 2010 I bought brand new laptop. It was Packard Bell LJ75 modification LJ75-JN-101RU based on, new for that time, Intel Core i3 processor and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5400 GPU. The first think that struck me in new laptop — it’s almost not heated, in comparison with my old Samsung R40. Packard Bell stay cold even on two hour of HD filming on sofa. It was really cool! But as time passed, I began to notice that temperature of my laptop is growing. It’s time to disassembly and clean my laptop.
For disassembly we need philips screwdriver PH.1 and PH.000 sizes. Also we need flathead screwdriver 2 or 3 size. Better to use magnetic screwdrivers. All screws in this laptop for philips screwdriver. Most of them are unscrewed by PH.1 size screwdriver. PH.000 is only for 3 fan screws. Flathead screwdriver is only for opening latches.
There are few different types of screws used in this laptop. They can be divided by two groups — with big cap and with small cap. Small cap screws used in bottom of laptop and holds lcd screen. Big cap screws used in other places. There are two lengths of big cap screws — 5 mm and 3 mm. 3 mm big cap screws is only 3 — 2 of them in hdd 1 bay, and one under the keyboard.
