Though similar, these directions do not work for me. I had 2 additional screws on the bottom and step 9 doesn't look like mine at as my metal section under the keyboard is attached to the palmrest and something else is holding the palmrest and the back of the system together by where the DVD drive is…

Thank you for the guide!

I replaced the OEM mechanical hard drive with an SSD. Used Macrium Reflect free edition to clone the drive. The laptop works 10x better now. The CPU is still limited, but it does not take forever to boot up anymore. SSDs are cheap now, this a a worthwhile upgrade.

For the f233 model - there is one difference.

After you have removed the keyboard you will not be able to remove the handguard/plastic framing without this:

1. Slide the entire CD drive out, you can see where the frame mounts to the sata/connector block.

2. Once that is completed, there are 3 silver screws holding the frame for the CD drive insert to the top plastic. Pull those screws.

3. Remove the 4 (not 5) screws from the metal frame

4. Lift black tabs from 2 ribbon cables and slide out

4. Remove the plastic handguard and metal frame underneath as one entire unit.

Actually, for the f233 model, the lift tabs for the ribbon cables are as follows: keyboard ribbon cable you lift black tab that is on the left of the connection / the next two ribbon cables are each released by lifting the white tab portion closest to the cable. I am VERY cautious when doing ribbon related manuvers.
