The memory is under the laptop. Turn the back, remove the battery, you will see alot of small screws, loose them all one after the other. But if you want to loose the memory, you do not need to remove all the screws, look very well you a cover that has about one or two screws, there you will find the memory. Also you will see a screw under the DVD/CD Drive, you need to loose the screw first before you can remove the drive.

As for the keyboard, after loosing the screws from under, turn the laptop back up, open the flip, try removing the front cover, before you can reach the keyboard. After opening the cover, you need to remove the keyboard flex carefully.

After loosing the screws, you might find it a bit difficult to open the laptop cover, you will need force to open it, but becareful so the nothing will get spoilt or broken.

It's very simple, just make sure all screws are loosed before you try opening.

I wish you the best.

Operating system not found.

The hard drive has either been damaged and can't be read, or its connection was knocked loose from the motherboard. Open whatever cover necessary on your computer to get at the hard drive and make sure any connecting cables are properly seated. If the drive was damaged by the fall you will need to replace it and restore your system.

Screen falls back

Loose hinges or bad hinges. You can pop off the hinge cover (above the keyboard) and 'try' to tighten the hinges, but if that doesn't work, it's failing hinges and the only fix is to get them replaced mate.
Hope this hellps, be sure to rate!! :)
