10ZiG 58xxq: Hardware disassembly 


 


 

 



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

Removing the 10ZiG 58xxq stand
If your 58xxq is fitted with a stand start by removing it. This is held by a single screw.

10ZiG 58xxq USB compartment
The cover to the USB compartment on the top of the 58xxq may be held shut by a screw. Remove it to gain access to the compartment. It is a small cross-head screw so you'll need a suitable screwdriver such as those that come in the sets marketed as Watchmaker Maker's or Jeweller's Screwdrivers set.

Removing the 10ZiG 58xxq top cover
Open up the hidden USB compartment on the top of the 58xxq. 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.

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