This page describes the disassembly of the XO laptop. For older versions of these instructions, see [[Disassembly/Archive]].

Before you disassemble your [[Hardware|XO laptop]], there are some things you should know about staying safe around electricity and small parts. In brief:
-
: '''Arianne''': ''Look at all these cautionsShouldn't we add a "'''Warning: this may break your system!'''" label to disassembly instructions?
+
* '''Protect your eyes.''' Watch out for small pieces of plastic or metal. If you have glasses or safety goggles, wear them.
-
: '''Bernie''': ''Everyone should try disassembling their XO - it was designed for this to be easy for any child. Plus, it's fun and a good learning experienceMaybe we should add a "Warranty void if this seal is '''NOT''' broken" label to encourage people to try it.''
+
* Watch out for electric shock.  '''Always unplug''' your XO and '''take out the battery''' before you disassemble.
 +
* '''Be careful.''' Use a clear workspace so you can see what you are doing, and keep small parts in bowls so they don't fall off the table.  Use common sense - if you find yourself yanking really hard on a part, it's probably not supposed to come off that way!
 +
* Follow the [[Motherboard Handling Procedures]]
 +
 
 +
Read the [[Disassembly safety]] section for more information on how to stay safe. The laptop is [[Disassembly design|designed]] to be easy and safe to take apart, but caution is always a good idea.

  • Watch out for electric shock. Always unplug your XO and take out the battery before you disassemble.
  • Be careful. Use a clear workspace so you can see what you are doing, and keep small parts in bowls so they don't fall off the table. Use common sense - if you find yourself yanking really hard on a part, it's probably not supposed to come off that way!
