How to disassemble Lenovo ideapad 110-15ISK model 80UD

In this guide I show how to disassemble Lenovo ideapad 110-15ISK (model 80UD) manufactured in the year 2017.

In the first part of the guide I will show how disassemble the laptop base and in the second part I will take apart the display panel and remove the LCD screen.

Both parts are independent form each other and if you need to replace the screen, you can jump to the second part.

By the way, if your Lenovo ideapad 110 series laptop looks different than one shown in this guide, take a look at my previous guide for model 80T7 manufactured in 2016.

    Thanks a lot. Really.
    I wanted to release some flea power from my laptop and that’s how I came here.

    I was confused about how to remove the power cable too, as it was my first time. But alhamdulillah i found a youtube vid which showed it, abd the issue was settled. Thanks again.

    It is very useful for my customers to remove their old battery. Usually, we need the old battery to double-check if their orders are correct as some of the people always make mistake on the battery L15S4A02 for Ideapad 110-15ISK, but some of the customers told us they don’t know how to open the laptop.
    Thanks for your post, it helps us so much.

    Thank you very much for the helpful, correct and professional description! Without it I couldn’t have disassembled it
    safely. I got stuck especially at the screw under the keyboard.

    Thanks, Ottó Boldizsár from Hungary

    Hi i wonder where is the other 4GB of ram is it solidated with motherboard ? And where are the other slots of ram task manager talks about ? Thnx

    • IML Tech

      The other 4GB RAM module integrated into the logic board. You can see 4 chips under the removable module in the step 4. That’s built-in memory.

  5. Tarek

    Very detailed and in the right sequence.
    Thank you soo much !
    Was very helpful to open my laptop and fix my video flicker issue which was due to the cable strained where it goes along the home to the screen.
    again thank you a lot!

    Hi am kiplangat I had my Lenovo laptop ideapad 110_15a that’s power on and after some seconds it’s goes off and no display in screen

    • IML Tech

      Nobert, test the AC adapter. Make sure the AC adapter outputs correct voltage. It’s possible the AC adapter is dead and the laptop battery doesn’t have enough charge to turn the laptop on.
      Also, you can try removing the memory module and see if the laptop turns on this way.

    • IML Tech

      No, you cannot. The motherboard doesn’t have m.2 slot.
      The only option is upgrading to a 2.5″ SATA SSD (SATA 3 – 6Gb/s).

  7. Robert.

    There developed a crack at the bottom left of my Lenovo pc and it is becoming hard to flip open as there is some resistance at that bottom part. I wonder what could be the problem.
    I decided to disassemble and; that is how I landed in this page.
    I could use your assistance

    • IML Tech

      Robert, I think your problem could be related to the display hinge. The hinge is either broken or separated from the base cover. It’s necessary to open up the laptop and take a closer look to determine what is causing the problem. You problem could be similar to this one:

  8. John Herrera

    My ideapad is this exact model but it doesn’t include the DVD drive, it’s literally empty space, you think it’s possible to install a Solid State Drive in that space?

    • IML Tech

      John, I think so. You can install an SSD into a DVD SSD caddy. It should work. I’m not sure if you can get full 6GB/s speed through the optical drive connector but it should work.
      Here’s the DVD SSD caddy example:

  9. William Pitcher

    Thanks for this. My laptop completely died while plugged in and using complete with no power lights. Wasn’t able to fix it — even tried taking out the memory and unplugging the battery. Ah well. At least, your instructions let me know it wasn’t something simple.
