Question about BenQ Joybook 8100 Notebook
Hey guys, As the subject says. All the screws that can be seen have been removed but I still cannot access the motherboard. There appears to be something still holding it together but I cannot find any other screws! I need to get in to the device because I need to check if the hard drive cable has become detatched somehow as when trying to boot up, it says device not found. Cheers!
If you look very carefully at the top of the keyboard in the recess there are 3 tabs that can be pushed back towards the screen with a knife blade and you can lift the top of the keyboard out and remove it. You will then find 3 silver screws that hold the top to the bottom. Three cables need to be removed from their sockets and the cables that connect to the network card (a black and a grey wire) the connectors just pull off. Use a small screwdriver to prise them up gently. Voila the laptop is now in two pieces.

If you can't access the device behind a bay on the underside, the chances of it working after you dissmantle is slim, it's a specialist job where notebooks are concerned, the board is easily damaged when twisting and pulling.
