Y500 Disassembled (Pictures)

Recommended Posts

They have fixed the issue of the touch-pad from the IC section of the board, so the general physical appearance should be the same and it does not affect the disassembling process!

In general the new version vs old version makes no difference in the assembly! I hope it helps!

Does it support intel wireless AC 7620 ? I need to change mine.

Yes, with modded BIOS

This is fantastic! I'm assuming the 510 isn't "that" much different from the 500 correct? I've been terrified to break my laptop down past taking out the RAM, hard drive, etc.

The build is identical

I dissassembled my y500 to find that there is tape all over the place. Will my warranty be void if I remove these pieces of tape?

It is possible that Lenovo detects that you opened it.

I don't know if it's a policy in your country.

Mine (and more Y500's) dont have this tape so I dont know if Lenovo did that to prevent DIY.

After opening my laptop I broke 1 pin at the ultrabay because it was stuck.

For your information: this does not prevent the back of the Y500 from closing.

just make sure you remove the broken pin, dont let it get into the Ultrabay because it may damage something inside.

Mine doesnt have tape as well, so I'm assuming there is no way for them to tell you opened it. However since your has a broken pin only on the ultra bay, I dont think they could tell how it happened as long as it is on the connector to the ultra bay.

I don't believe it has an inverter. I didn't see anything in the y500 that had an inverter, nor any new laptops for that matter. flickering could be board, I would try to find another screen to test with before I would order one. Or you can order one from someone who has a return policy to be safe.

No, you just have to be careful not to bend the pin. Easiest way for me to remove it was use a small spatula or flat head under the round ring and it pops off. Then you just line it up on the new card and it should pop on. I don't know if switching the black and white make a difference though.

Drill out the top part of the screw and then use pliers to grab the rest. Be careful not to let metal pieces remain anywhere near your motherboard and other components.

This is awesome. I'm in the middle of some minor upgrades and appreciate the guidance.

This will be useful in the near future. My laptopscreen flickers when opening/closing.. The laptop itself is almost as fast as when I bought it 3 years ago, so it would be a shame if I had to buy a new one.

Thanks for the pictures n1smo, For what ever reason I always thought disassembling a laptop would be hard, but as you have shown its actually really easy. My hard drive is starting to die and I also want to change out my WiFi card. So I'll be needing to change both of them out, which is such a easy process.

Remove all other screws, and pop the bottom cover off all except for that corner. Then pull up on the corner firmly, and try unscrewing it. The damn sockets for the screws on the rear of the laptop are not properly secured and will break loose. I've tried regluing it several times and it keeps snapping loose.

      Hello !
      I tried a tutorial on the forum to remove the supervisor password on a X260 thinkpad but the winbond 25Q128FVPQ chip is not recognized with the programmer CH341A and ASprogramer (does not detect automatically and not manually). Plugged into the motherboard with a soic8.

      Can you help me with detection?
      Can I find the password with the software or do I have to write it?
       
      Thank you so much !!!

      To install the unlocked bios, I prepared and booted a freedos usb. I start the installation by typing flash.bat but every time I get the following error: Error 28: Protected Range Registers are currently set by BIOS, preventing flash Access. Please contact the target System BIOS vendor for an option to disable Protected Range Registers.
      How can i solve this problem ?

      Hi!

      I would love to have my BIOS modded to disable the wireless whitelist.
      I tried to do it myself (dump BIOS from chip, disassemble, locate the reference to the error message "Unauthorized Wireless network card is plugged in..." memory address and modify the condition in the binary file so not to "land" in the infinite loop) but I couldn't dig to anything meaningful I could easily change.

      Laptop: Lenovo ThinkPad S440 (TYPE 20BB-S00400)
      BIOS version: 73ET71WW (1.71)
      Original WiFi/BT card: Intel Wireless-N 7260 (7260HMW BN) (vendor: 0x8086, device: 0x08B2, subdevice: 0x4262)
      Target WiFi/BT card: Broadcom BCM94352HMB (I haven't received it yet, waiting for delivery)

      Manufacturer BIOS download: bootable ISO, updater for Windows
      My BIOS dump (using CH341A SPI Programmer under Linux): http://www.mediafire.com/file/mn0gfr9ext7yqrn/S440_73ET71WW.bin/file
       
      Thanks!
