    • Once the covers are off, remove two more screws from underneath the covers.

    • All of the screws are the same as the ones already removed.

    the model I had had screws underneath the rubber feet on those two black pieces. I had to pry off the rubber feet and remove the screws underneath so that I could pry up these two black corner pieces.

  5. Turn the laptop back upright and open the lid
    • Turn the laptop back upright and open the lid

    • Using a guitar pick, release the plastic retaining clips that hold the bottom of the case on.

    • Release the areas marked with green first, then the yellow and last the orange.

    • Close the lid and turn the unit upside down again.

    • The bottom cover should now be free, lift the front part first and push the cover toward the hinges.

    • If the cover resists make sure you have removed all the bottom screws including the two hidden under stickers.

    my model had two screws that became visible after removing the CD drive - they were silver and had a much larger head than the other screws. I had to remove those to be able to lift the keyboard up.

    • With the bottom cover removed the hard drive and RAM are easily accessible.

    • The hard drive is held in only by friction,

    • To remove the hard drive from its mount lift the drive a bit from the end near the data and power cables

    • Disconnect the power and data cables, the cable is a delicate ribbon cable so be gentle, don't pull it out or the way too far.

    • Lift the cable end a bit more and slide the drive towards the ram a bit to release the clips holding down the other end.

    • the mounting frame can just be pulled free from the drive, it is also only attached by friction.

    my model had a ribbon cable that went across the length of the Harddrive requiring its removal to access the harddrive. Removing the cable from the motherboard was a problem - I was unable to successfully unplug it. The cable attached to a small circuit board containing a usb port and microphone connection - I was able to remove two screws holding down that circuit board and then lift it out of the way, enabling me to remove the HDD

  7. When reassembling, keep the unit upside down and slide the bottom cover back into place hinges first.
    • When reassembling, keep the unit upside down and slide the bottom cover back into place hinges first.

    • It is a little fiddly getting the clips near the hinges and battery compartment seated.

    • Once the hinge area is close to being tight enough to push the clips back together, run your fingers down the sides by the keyboard to clip the sides and front.

    • Turn the unit upright open the lid and slide your fingers along the edge under the display and all the way around the edge to be sure all of the clips are back in place.

    • Reinstall the optical drive.

    • Turn the unit upside down again.

    • Replace the screws that will be hidden under the black covers by the hinges.

    • Replace the black covers by the hinges and then all of the rest of the screws. Don't forget the cover stickers for the two hidden screws.

Very good tutorial. The cover is a pain to open but with your input, it worked great.. thanks!

Now, I must ask, how do I replace the keyboard??? Can it be done?

dgolson45 - 回复

I don't have access to one of these right now, the one used for the guide was in for an upgrade, but looking at my photos it looks like there is a metal plate under the mainboard that holds the keyboard in place and it looks like it is held in place by melted plastic.

It that is the case, the official method would be a replacement assembly that includes the keyboard the retaining plate and the cover plate that the keyboard mounts through, moving all the electronic bits over.

The MacGyver method, (if you can get a replacement keyboard alone) would be to remove all the parts that block the keyboard retaining plate, break it loose to remove the dead keyboard and use glue to reattach the retaining plate.

If you have a heat gun (SMC rework station) you may be able to use it to soften the plastic retainers during removal and smash them back down later with a soldering iron but that basically never works.

Great tutorial. I got water on my laptop and had to get inside to dry it out. Worked just like you said!! Thanks!

Usually on a troubleshooting forum, the common sense is to EXPLAIN the situation... not just drop your frustration and leave!

Thanks! The only problem I had is with the ssd, the cover would not close with both rubber spacers installed, I took one out and used tape, then it snapped back on great!

Excelent tutorial. It is compatible with the 17-x121-dx model as well. Thanks.

Martin Gleria - 回复

Exactly what I needed to get the job done. Also, I hadn't thought of using a guitar pick before, but that was perfect for the job. Thanks!

Simply superb. Thank you.

Outstanding. Worked as written on Pavilion Notebook 17 g077cl

The only difference was the clips by the hinges - no clips fell out, none present (made no difference).

Regarding the rubber spacers on the HD - When I replaced the HD, I must have put them backwards because I had the same issue as Alex. Once I reversed them, the cover closed fine.

Again, kudos for a well written and photographed guide.

What type of memory does this model use?

Gary McCoy - 回复

The HP Pavilion - 17 g173ca uses DDR3. Mine has two 8gb modules totaling 16gb

Allan - 回复

Great job! Two differences with my HP: screws were under the two rubber feet near the hinges and two small screws were holding the CD to the top of the case. Those were a pain to access; the CD tray has small access holes. So open the tray and slide it till the holes line up for a very small diameter Philips screwdriver.

Thanks so much for providing this excellent tutorial. I successfully upgraded my hard drive to a SSD. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Really struggling to get the case off. The clips under the battery click back into place as soon as you lift the front and there seems to be resistance from the centre of the inside. Any help?

Ryan Merrick - 回复

That resistance from the center usually means a screw has been missed, double check that all of the screws have been removed. If you are working on a different model than the one pictured there could be additional screws hiding somewhere.
