I've just purchased a new set of RAM for my Samsung series 5 laptop (NP550P7C) however (embarrassingly) cannot figure out how to get the laptop apart! I've taken plenty of other models apart in the past however am struggling with this one. I've removed all screws etc, however it seems that most of the cover is help in place by plastic clips which feel very flimsy and I don't want to force them without knowing what I am doing. Has anyone replaced the RAM or HDD in one of these and have any pointers?

You don't need to take the laptop apart. There is access on the bottom of the unit.

Page 82 of the User Manual shows how to upgrade your memory.

I had read that manual however it doesn't seem to match my laptop - the screw is there, as is the cover however it is a different shape (an inverted T rather than an L. I can unclip the edges of this cover however it feels then as if it is being help with a screw from the other side which is the part I am unsure about forcing –  Macros Nov 27 '12 at 15:43
