    I used this guide to upgrade the memory on an HP 15-r011dx, and found that the keyboard ribbon is very finicky. In fact, the first time I put the PC back together, many of the keys on the keyboard didn’t work! Two more tries did the trick. I finally realized that the teeny, tiny teeth on the ribbon must be carefully threaded into the connector (i.e., lined up exactly in each tiny track) in order for the keyboard to work. I usually work on Macs and have never encountered this issue before now, but next time I take apart this, or any other PC laptop, I’ll know this is a quirk.

    It would be nice if you added how to unplug and plug back in the wires. I used two small flat head screwdrivers on each side of the white ‘plugs’ to gently apply equal pressure to remove them. However, since the wire is not attached to the white plug, which is not mentioned, and the white plug is quite small, it is difficult to figure out how to reassemble it, or which side of the plug was front/back, up/down. It looks like the wire strip lays on top of the wire teeth/posts that stick out and then you slide the plug on top of that to secure it. So far, no luck with this attempt.

    After struggling to attach the two wires that had been unplugged, I would suggest using the blue plastic tabs that are attached to the wire to unplug them, instead of doing what I did above, which is pulling out the white plastic piece that holds the wires down. I have not tried it, and you might need to still remove the white plastic pieces that secure the wires, but it’s worth a shot. If you do end up removing the white plastic pieces, be warned that the metal prongs that they fit into and stay attached to the computer, can be easily bent when trying to place the plastic piece on to secure the wire, so if you are having a problem, check that. Also, pay attention to how the plastic piece looks when you take them off- which side is up and facing out.

Two things to add:

1. The two screws hidden under the DVD drive on the edge of the case must be removed.

2. It's easier to unlatch the ribbons for the keyboard, trackpad, and power button than it is to try and work around them. There are holes in the laptop base right over the ribbon connectors, so it's easy to re-connect them.

I don't have the screws that hold the hard drive in place. Is there any way to get them seperatly?
