Lenovo Yoga 710 (Remove Internal RAM Cover) - How Do I Remove It?

Hello,

 

I have a Lenovo Yoga 710 15 80V50000U laptop and I am trying to add memory. I have opened the back but there seems to be a metal box/cover around the ram that I can't figure out how to remove.

 

There are several groups (of 2) clips around each side of the metal cover and also many holes on the top/sides. Do I remove it by prying the clips and/or removing screws? If there are screws, I don't see them, could they be inside those little holes (and if so which holes)?

Thank you,

Looks like you'll need a wedge tool to pry open the cover. I suggest starting on one corner, then the next. If you don't have a wedge tool, try using a ruler carefully.

 

Here's a reference video that might help: https://www.lenovoservicetraining.com/showcase?sid=1170&key=TGVuZw==

 

Let me know that helped Smiley Happy

Those clips are somewhat flexible / bendable. Should I (VERY carefully) use something like a credit card to bend each one away from the box to lift it up?

Yep, try starting from one corner and wiggling it upwards. Once one clip is off, the rest should also fall off easily.

*UPDATE* I found THIS post and the person said they figured it out. Here is what they said:

 

"...Although, it did take me a few minutes to figure out how to remove the "DDR Shield" (Picture attached).  I ended up using the Torx screwdriver in the small holes on the sides of that metal shield to pry it up.  After that, it was a standard RAM upgrade.  That DDR shield then snapped back in place...."

 

They did not, however, say which holes, how many, etc. Smiley Sad

Seems like what he did was pry it up through the middle of the memory cover. That's a bit more risky though, since the memory module is right under the holes (the holes for for cooling). 

I would suggest prying from the corner slowly. If a credit card isn't rigid enough, try something like the plastic side of the SD card.

There's no screws under the holes, so it's just prying it up from the corner.
