In this guide I disassemble a Dell Inspiron 15 7569 or 7579 2-in-1 (model P58F) laptop. These two models are identical. It’s likely this disassembly guide will fit some other Inspiron 15 7000 2-in1 series computers.
Here are some of the Dell Inspiron 15 7569 7579 design features that make this model easily serviceable:
– The cooling fan can be removed and replaced without heatsink removal.
– The motherboard has two memory slots.
– The DC power jack is not soldered to the motherboard and can be easily replaced if necessary.
– The keyboard is not permanently attached to the top case and can be replaced separately.
