Can you remove the case of the Qosmio X500?

Hi,

 

Is it possible to remove the case of the Qosimo X500 without having to send it to Toshiba?

 

I have removed all the screws that I can see, but the top panel is still attached, there appears to be a screw underneath the plastic :smileyfrustrated:

 

I post this in a hope that someone has done this before, and noticed something I didnt.

 

I have looked for guides but I couldnt find any, if I missed one please link me.

 

Regards,

 

Joe

I wouldn't mess with it, unless you don't care about voiding the warranty.

 

There's a site out there with the dissasemble for the x500 (505).  Kind of afraid to post on here.  Goto http://forum.notebookreview.com/toshiba/ and there's a post there.

 

Good luck

Make sure that you get it back together perfectly.  If Toshiba repair techs can tell that it has been opened then it is possible that it could void the warranty.   So if you are opening it to upgrade it, you could be causing yourself more trouble than the upgrade is worth at this time.
