Samsung NP355V5C


Dec 5, 2012
First of all, I apologize if this thread is in the wrong place, I wasn't sure where exactly to put it.

Anyway, my problem is that I want to disassemble my Samsung NP355V5C to get at the cooling fan so I can manually clean it - but the chassis does not come off even when I've unscrewed everything I can see or get at - I've removed the battery, RAM, ODD and the hard drive, but as I've stated the chassis refuses to come off. I've managed to open up the bezel in the front and get a side view into my laptop, but that's about it.

So has anyone actually taken apart this model or one that's similar enough to know what I'm missing here?

Before anyone brings this up: yes I have decided I want to do this on my own, not get someone else to do it.
