Question about Toshiba Satellite P35-S611 Notebook
I like to swap the P35-S611 FANS WITH NEW ONES, HOW CAN I OPEN THE BOX? THANKS
There is more to it than that, if you just remove the screws on the
bottom , youll crack the case... first remove the battery, ram and
hard disk., and wifi card. then just above the keyboard, theres a strip
of plastic about 1.25 inches wide that spans the whole bottom of the
screen... pry this up and put it to the side. then remove the screws
holding the keyboard down. remove the keyboard being careful not to
damage the cable. now remove the screws holding the screen down(top and
bottom of case). unplug the screen and put it in a safe place. now
remove all the screws on the bottom of the laptop, MAKE SURE YOU TAKE
THE 2 BOLT/NUT/SCREW THINGS OFF THE VGA OUT PORT ON THE BACK! it should
be fairly easy to get the top of the case off now. leaving you with the
mainboard sitting in the bottom of the case. Now flip over your board,
it may take a little maneuvering to get the board out of the case. be
careful not to bend the board too far. be careful not to damage the
buttons on your PCM CIA card slots. You may have to bend the case a bit
to get the VGA ot port out of the case. Now look at the screw locations
on the fans. the screws are on the opposite side of the board. unplug
fans, and swap them out. now put it all back together! NOTE: if you get
several beeps and or blank screen after trying to startup, you probably
didnt discharge the static from your body before touching the RAM and
it could be either burnt out or you may have to take one of the sticks
out and let it sit for awhile.
P.S. if youre replacing the fans because it overheats... its probably not the fans! its the heatsink which requires taking it apart anyhow, but where the fans blow through the heatsink lots of crud gets built up in there and blowing compressed air into it usually does not help. if you do all this, be careful taking the heatsink off the board! and dont damage your chip! if you take heatsink off and chip pulls out with it, youll have to remove chip from heatsink as it is a ZIF socket and dont forget to replace the silver heat compound on the chip! i found it was helpful to pull the heatsink off and run it under some hot water, then dry it with your wifes blowdryer, use some compressed air and q tips to clean your fans out really nice (dont take them apart, theyll never work again) and reassemble.. presto! like new!.. any questions?> give me a holler!

Remove all the screws underneath first then gently seperate.
