E the black ZIF lever is visible when the drive is installed. I was trying to get a TZ apart to replace the dead MKGAH, and was stuck on pulling the hinge apart, and that one screw hidden under the rubber foot on the other side. Found that 4 micro screws 2 left, 2 right fixing screen to hinge were loose 1 had actually fallen out — this causes excessive load on screen hinge mounts casing break. Mika a m June 6, An alternative in an emergency is to boot with a USB pen drive which you need to have created earlier or can make elsewhere. On the SSD drive, the zif socket is on the underside, with socket lever completely hidden when the drive is installed. You gave me the hints. Also, for users who actual follow the guide I encourage a donation.

I would have preferred to buy a new keyboard but looks like I may have to settle for a used keyboard assembly. It looks like the CPU is soldered to the motherboard and cannot be replaced. Looking for something that does. Now running silently again and all back together.
