Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB

Today I will be taking apart a Lenovo Yoga 720-13IKB laptop. I will explain how to remove all the major internal components.

Let me answer a couple of questions before you asked them:

  1. Is it possible to replace just the keyboard without replacing the entire top case? It’s possible but not easy. The keyboard is riveted to the top case. Take a look at the last picture.
  2. Is it possible to upgrade RAM? No, it’s not. The RAM is integrated into the motherboard. It’s shown in the step 11.

In this guide I explain how to replace failed cooling fan in a Lenovo ThinkPad T410.

In my case the fan stopped spinning properly and the laptop was displaying “Fan Error” on startup.

Cleaning the fan fixed this issue for a while but it started giving the same fan error again soon.
