I have a Toshiba Satellite L855 - S5372. I was using it when it suddenly started making a wack-wack-wack noise; I'm certain that something got stuck in the CPU fan. Nothing had come in from the outside, and rocking it failed to change anything. I thought it would be a simple matter to take the cover off of the back and remove whatever is in the fan, but after removing 20-something screws and getting the cover loose, the cover seems to be caught near the battery compartment (the battery is removed).
Can anyone tell me if:
- There's a secret latch or something where the cover goes around the battery compartment.
- There are any actual service manuals, diagrams, etc. on the Internet. Google searches have only found "user manuals" with really basic software stuff.
I have some experience working on the inside of desktop computers, but laptop repair is new to me.
