I am replacing the keyboard, and by that I have to take the ENTIRE thing apart. Why not do it?

  1. Dell XPS L321X was considered one of the great laptops of its time, with lightweight, performance, and comfort all together in one. IN YEAR 2012.
    • Dell XPS L321X was considered one of the great laptops of its time, with lightweight, performance, and comfort all together in one.

    • IN YEAR 2012.

    • The Intel i7-2636 processor and the Intel Graphics 3000 was certainly off the shelf today, but this thing still can put up a fight ...

    • When it had a external fan.

    • A decent laptop cooler can lower the CPU temperature by roughly 20 degrees (farenheit) under almost all conditions. A must-have.

  2. The left was the power, the PRIMARY USB, and the headphone jack.
    • The left was the power, the PRIMARY USB, and the headphone jack.

    • The right sported a MINI DisplayPort and another USB. Someone says that you can connect a EXTERNAL GRAPHICS CARD!!!

    • The two different USB port use two very different driver. PRIMARY one is a USB 2.0 with PowerShare, the SECONDARY ONE was a USB 3.0 without Powershare and requires external drivers (Fresco Logic, yes.)

    • The keyboard is metal, the palm rest is metal, and the touchpad is metal.

    • Full-metal top. A must-have for a "ultranook" for its time.

    • But do you notice the holes and the small button on the right?

    • It let you check how much battery there are. One light means 20%.

    • One of the rarer designs, even today.

  3. TORX!
    • TORX!

    • I am properly armed, and I unscrewed them (as seen in pic), but ...

    • I LOST THE BIT!

    • I might get myself new ones.

    • But that means I can do whatever I want to it when necessary, until new bit came so I can put the rear cover up

    • KEEP THE SCREWS!!!

  4. So NOW that we get those screws out of the way, shall we continue? (Yes, let's go!)
    • So NOW that we get those screws out of the way, shall we continue? (Yes, let's go!)

    • Before lifting up the back cover, though, check the regulatory if you wanted to.

    • Then just boldly lift the back cover up (make sure to disconnect the charger and earphones, as they get into the way)

    • It's so straightaway, that I can find no better word to describe it.

    • Convenient. Almost.

    • Now, perhaps, you may realize that this back cover is NOT ordinary plastic--ir's so strong, yet light...

    • Real carbon fiber?

  5. That's everything inside a very neat package! You got the speakers, the motherboard, the databoard and the fan in between...and under that was the power outlet. 47Wh should be a reasonable size for a laptop... Mine was still in 82% health. (Consider what it had been through prior, that's a very good figure already)

    • DELL is pretty neat in packing those down, but the overlapping was a bit of a issue over here.

  7. Now. Before you want to use your common sense to dive in deep, disconnect the wires. At least the ribbon cable for the data board, the power socket, and the batteries. Don't forget about the keyboard's TWO wires-the "keys" and the backlight. I snagged my backlight cable (not due to unawareness of its presense).

    • Use a tweezer/opener on the cable housing, but it's OKAY to use hand as long as you are gentle.

    • Remove the screws as you go through, but KEEP THEM!

  8. That's what I am talking about here.
    • That's what I am talking about here.

    • Do you have all of them?

    • Left to right: tiny black one (philips, for keyboard and the lining), small black ones (torx, for the back cover), small white ones (small philips, for touchpad), medium white ones (small philips, for SINGLE-LAYER items like speaker, battery), medium black one (medium philips, for the hinges), and long white ones (medium philips, for the board)

    • You should use appropriate screwdrivers for them (tiny black ones especially prone to stripping, I screw up one of mine already). Use a philips #000 only if philips #00 don't fit, and philips #0 for the largest of the screws (big black ones only)

  9. Now, lift that big slab of battery off. (basically taking everything you can out of the thing.) Then the fan. The screw in this picture is a big white one (it may be not), because you end up with one extra big white one after using up all the multi-layer holes. Now it's a good time to wash the fan. (it's okay to do it with water, I did it that way.) Just make sure they are 200% dry before connecting them to power.

    • Take out those speakers--those are going to get into your way when you try to lift off the motherboard.

    • Pictured are the proper wiring of the left and right speakers. (ESPECIALLY the right sided one -- the one on the motherboard)

  10. Your device ...
    • Your device ...

    • Oh nooooo.... what did you do to your laptop?

    • I cleaned it.

    • should now look like this, after the removal of speakers, battery and daoguterboard and the fan.

    • Ignore that SAMSUNG 860 EVO mSATA 250 GB SSD on the board...

  11. REVEALING SOME 40 HOLES FOR THE SCREWS! Immediate headache. Take off ALL the screws you encounter. I think it is 27. I lost count.
    • REVEALING SOME 40 HOLES FOR THE SCREWS!

    • Immediate headache.

    • Take off ALL the screws you encounter. I think it is 27. I lost count.

    • Which means that there are more holes then there are for screws!

    • OH NO. WHAT SHOULD WE DO???

    • Well, the screw holes with letter "K" NEARBY (within 3mm radius) are for keyboard screws. The other ones are not. (and are for, for example, the motherboard.)

    • Now, this one right above the touchpad IS a keyboard screw, despite the fact that it don't have letter 'K' on it. (they can't print it on the ribbon cable, duh)

    • Don't forget this ... what should I call it? Bracket thing for the half-height WLAN card.

  12. NOW the hinge....?
    • NOW the hinge....?

    • TOUGH screws. Use Philips #0 for the sake of your screwdriver ( and the screws!)

    • One side is the display thing. the other is the antenna coord...

    • There are three holes, but only two holes for the screws to go to (on the "palm rest")

    • Ah, and DELL had a cute little screw here to keep the power button in place! Lovely.

  13. Now that, is a wrap.
    • Now that, is a wrap.

    • Just look at the amount of screws in that white box.

    • I SWEAR I take the keyboard off...

    • The black thing keyboard is on is the SCREEN, not the "palmrest". palmrest is over to the left (of the picture)

  14. To put everything together, just follow the guide in reverse...
    • To put everything together, just follow the guide in reverse...

    • CLEAN YOUR KEYBOARD! Now's a real good chance to do so.

    • I might get more pics, but all I want to do now is to set up my new system, and play some Terraria ...
