    Good catch. I made the assumption all machines in the P series come apart the same way since multiple chassis in the same line are rare. What model machine do you have?

    Now that I’ve looked at my picture, I think I know what you’re talking about. I think you’re taking about the square areas that were never used on my machine?

    I added a marker to account for this. I meant to do it sooner, but it slipped past me. Let me know if I put the markers in the wrong location. I have not seen one of these, so I don’t know with 100% certainty.

    Try a Phillps #000 screwdriver. It worked for me with a #00, but #000 is a better fit when I revisited this.

  8. Do not remove the palmrest. The power button is still connected to the motherboard. If you are having trouble removing the palmrest, try using a guitar pick. Use a plastic tool to remove the palmrest. Once all 3 sides are loose, disconnect the keyboard and trackpad. Flip the black plastic tabs on the connectors up to remove the cables.

    Not sure if you’re being serious or sarcastic. If you’re serious, it says it in the line you quoted that from why it has to wait.

    This is very difficult to remove. I managed to get the hard drive removed without removing it completely. The corners would not come loose and I didn’t want to risk cracking the palmrest.

    The trick I’ve used on this HP chaissis is I will go over the back tabs with more attention then the rest, and then go over it again just to be sure.

    The alternative is to buy anything else that isn’t awful to service, but sadly if you own it you can’t do much about it.
