How to dismantle a medion laptop

Updated February 21, 2017

Medion laptops are a line of German-made personal computers that have become much more popular in Europe than they have in the United States. This means that if you own a Medion laptop you may be having problems finding a service technician that knows how to work on it. So If you need to dismantle your Medion laptop to fix an internal problem or upgrade components, but don't know how to go about it, there's no need to worry. The process of taking apart your Medion shouldn't take more than a few minutes of your time.

Turn off your Medion laptop, remove it from any power sources, close it and then place it face down on a table. Remove the long plastic battery pack from the side of the laptop by gently popping it out of its compartment.

Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the three screws (nine total) from each of the three compartments on the bottom of the laptop. Remove the compartment covers to reveal the internal components.

Remove the hard drive from the middle compartment on the bottom of the Medion by gently sliding it out of its bay.

Turn your computer right-side-up and open the laptop. Remove the plastic palm rest under the keyboard by gently popping it out at the sides. Now lift up the keyboard and unplug the connector ribbon connecting the keyboard to the computer. The internal components of the laptop will now be exposed.

Remove the single screw holding the metal DDR cover in place. The DDR cover is located in the top left of where the keyboard used to be. Remove the cover.

Remove the six screws on the square CPU thermal module located on the right side of where the keyboard used to be. Then remove the long thin plastic cover just under the LCD screen. Remove the CPU thermal module from its compartment and set aside. Your Medion is now disassembled
