    Take out screws till all the correct ones are out.


    DO
    NOT
    PLACE
    IT
    ON
    CARPET!


    Unless you want it dead?

    (If you need a work space lay down a cardboard box or something, carpet = almost guaranteed fried mobo.)

    Do you have soldering experience? Aanyway, the type of laptop would be usefull too, but you should be able to figure it out. Probably you will need to remove CPU/GPU heatsinks and etc.. Could be some things are clicked in there rather then held in there with a screw so be mindfull of that. Also it's a multilayered PCB, don't put too much stress on there as that will kill it.

    I can't believe some people will still try to do that... Yeah, carpet + any open electronic = dead electronic.

    carpet+rubbing = static
    static + exposed electronics = dead electronics

    It also goes for person + carpet = staticly charged person
    staticly charged person + exposed electronics = dead electronics

    Make sure you are grounded and whatever you are working with is placed on an anti-static surface.
