How to disassemble HP Envy DV7-7000 (and fix the noisy fan)


My laptop is this one:

Model: HP Envy DV7-7202sl (SKU: C0T81EA#ABZ; EAN: 0887111517340) HP 181D (ver. 52.24)

BIOS firmware: Insyde (ver. F.2D)

but the following steps apply for all HP Envy DV7-7000 series laptops.

I have a huge bunch of photos, taken during the taking apart and fixing, and -sooner or later- I’ll upload and publish them here.

More to come.. soon(?).
