10ZiG 58xx: Hardware disassembly 


 


 

 



This is how I got into the 10ZiG 58xx.

Removing the 10ZiG 58xx stand
Start by removing the stand. This is held by a single screw.

Removing the 10ZiG 58xx top cover
Open up the hidden USB compartment on the top of the 58xx. This will reveal a single screw close to the back panel. Remove this screw. You will then be able to slide the top cover to the rear and lift it clear.

Note: I subsequently got a 58xxq. With this one the compartment lid was held shut by a small crosshead screw for which you'll need a suitably sized screwdriver. I guess this is probably the norm and the screw had long since been lost from the 58xx example of mine.

Gaining access to the 10ZiG 58xx memory
Looking down you need to remove the screw circled in red. This will let you remove the side cover.

The two screws circled in blue hold a small metal bridge in place that prevents the SATA DOM being removed. You only need to undo these if you want to remove the DOM.

Gaining access to the 10ZiG 58xx memory
Having removed the screw you will be able to slide the side panel back a a few mm and then lift it clear.

Gaining access to the 10ZiG 58xx memory
With the side panel out of the way you'll see a metal panel that covers about half the area of the circuit board. Remove the two screws after which you can remove the panel.

Gaining access to the 10ZiG 58xx memory
With the cover removed you have access to the socketed memory and also another SATA socket.
