Construction: Upgrading and Maintenance
A Look Inside...

Removing the bottom access panels gives way to reveal the first populated DDR2 SODIMM memory bank, WiFi card, and hard drive. The D810 sample we have here came populated with 2 x Samsung 512MB PC4300. The hard drive can be accessed by removing the two screw holding the hard drive enclosure in place and just sliding the module out.


Like the previous Dell Latitude designs, you can easily access the keyboard by first popping out the bezel above the keyboard from the right divot and unscrewing the two keyboard screws. After that all you need to do is slide the keyboard up and out.



Under the keyboard, you can access the second DDR2 SODIMM slot. While you can see portions of the CPU cooler atop CPU (left side) and the larger GPU cooler atop GPU module (right side), you cannot access them. You won't be able to remove the CPU cooler for cleaning unless you disassemble the entire top casing of the notebook. In that scenario, you will have to detach the display from the rest of the notebook.
