STEP 7.

Pull the SSD out of the slot.

If you take a closer look, you’ll notice that SSD has two notches and this is “B+M key” edge connector.

The socket on the motherboard, on the other hand, has only one notch (5 pins from the notch to the right edge) and this is “M key” edge socket.

The B+M key SSD module can plug into a B or M key socket, but a B or M SSD module can only plug into a matching B or M socket.

    Hi, thank you so much for your post!

    Quick question, qould you happen to know where I can find the CMOS battery in the Lenovo Yoga 710? (this laptop)

    I had disassembled the computer but couldnt find it. Is it possible for the computer to not have one?

    thanks!

    Hello! Is there something like SMC reset? Mine doesn´t power on, when I push power button, it flashes three times, but does nothing. I disassembled it now, tried to reconnect battery, but still nothing. Thank you. 🙂

    Remove battery and hold power down for 30 s to reset
    Then reconnect and power on
    It should work

      If I want to remove the DC power jack, do I have to follow all of the steps listed above it?

      Sorry if this is an obvious answer question!

        Lauren, you don’t have to follow all the steps. Remove the base cover as it shown in the STEP 1 and after that just follow STEPs 11-14 to lift up the left hinge and remove the DC jack. That’s it.

    Are there any instructions anywhere on how to disassemble the top part of this laptop? I need to fix the connection to the webcam. Apparently the cables connecting the webcam are only held down by double-sided tape, which eventually starts to come unstuck, leading to the camera not working a lot of the time (sometimes I can get it working by squeezing the top somewhere near the webcam) and also to BSODs.

      Robert, here’s the official Lenovo service manual for Yoga 710 laptops.

      Display disassembly instructions start on the page 52.
      Good luck!
