    Wow, that is ridiculous. Might tackle it for myself but anyone else can take it back to the agent!!
    I surely wouldn't tackle it for anyone else, that's for sure. Lose just one teeny tiny screw and you've just bought yourself an inoperable laptop!

    Ohhhhhh, it's more than just the whole bottom cover! First, about 15 screws from the bottom, then the DVD drive. Turn it over and gently lift up the top cover. Gently remove three cables and then finish removing the top.

    Once all that's done, somehow get to the hard drive and RAM. I have read how to do that, but it's been awhile.

    IIRC, you have to remove around 75 screws and keep them all ID'd and labelled so you can put things all back together the right way.

    Thankfully, the instructions/schematics are well written. Because I already know I'm gonna do it, just not exactly when.
    That's what I had to do on my wife's Acer. The hard drive is on the top side of the motherboard. That's why there was no access cover. I had to remove the keyboard and undo the ribbon cables for the trackpad etc. It's one of those slim designs. Just keep track of what screw comes out of what hole, in case they are different lengths.

    My ASUS laptop is just the opposite, but it's a big monster with a 17.3 inch screen. It has the one access cover for the dual drive bays and RAM slots. Just 3 screws. It was a dozen or more for the Acer.
