This manual provides instructions for removing and replacing field-replaceable components, assemblies, and subassemblies in your Dell Latitude portable computer. Unless otherwise noted, each procedure in this manual assumes that a part can be replaced by performing the removal procedure in reverse order. It is recommended that you use a book or something similar to support the display assembly when it is open nearly 180 degrees. The angle of the display assembly with respect to the bottom case should never be allowed to exceed 180 degrees. Also, when performing the procedures in this manual, the locations or directions relative to the computer are as shown in Figure 1 unless otherwise specified.

9. Remove the secondary battery assembly (if present) from the modular bay. 10. Ground yourself by touching the unpainted metal surface of the I/O panel on the back of the computer. While you work, periodically touch the I/O panel to dissipate any static electricity that might harm components.


The illustrations in the following removal procedures provide the correct screw length as part of the screw's label. A graphic for that length screw is also included in the illustration. Examples are shown in Figure 3. Match the actual screw to the graphic in the illustration to check for correct length.

1. If you only have one memory module, install it in the DIMM A socket. NOTES: 192-MB memory modules are designed for either the socket labeled DIMM A or the socket labeled DIMM B; they are not interchangeable. Be sure that the memory module is inserted with the double-stacked memory chips facing you. A 192-MB memory module inserted with the double-stacked memory chips facing down does not fit properly in the socket. Memory modules are keyed, or designed to fit into their sockets, in only one direction. The slots on the system board are notched so that the memory module can be firmly seated only one way.
