posted in: 4. Dell | 57

In this guide I will show how to disassemble a Dell Inspiron 15 M5040 or Inspiron 15 N5040 laptop.

There are no service covers on the bottom of this model.

In a Dell Inspiron M5040/N5040 all major internal components (such as memory, hard drive, DVD drive, wireless card) are mounted INSIDE the case.

Also, this guide will work for Inspiron 15-N5050/3520.

In order to access them it’s necessary to remove the top cover assembly.

I will go through the following disassembly steps:
STEP1-7: Disconnecting and removing the keyboard. Accessing both RAM modules.
STEP 8-13: Removing the top cover assembly. Removing the DVD drive. Accessing other internal components.
STEP 14: Disconnecting and removing the hard drive.
