Hello from steamy southeast Louisiana! I found you guys today while I was ensuring I properly removed a good 430+ infections my son managed to install on my old laptop I loaned him. I was pleased to see that ESET and Malwarebytes (the two I was working with) were recommended as effective on all of the program names I searched (i.e.- playbryte and stuff like that - he tried downloading too many "free" games). SO now I'm still trying to get this laptop in full working order, and the last few things I have to do are replace the keyboard, audio jacks, and internal speakers. The question I have is this: Do I really have to pull out all of the cards and rip it apart to access the speakers, as I saw in the disassemble vid I saw on youtube? I have a Dell Inspiron 1720. I did order a usb soundcard with audio jacks so I can run external speakers, but I'd really like to get the internal speakers up and running as well. Thanks in advance!

Hi PARidge,

You will need to remove the Optical Drive, Hard Drive, Hinge Cover, Keyboard, Display Assembly, Bluetooth Card and Palm Rest to access the speakers. You may download service manual from the following link for instructions:

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thanks and Regards,
Rajath N

Thanks for the reply. That's pretty much in line with what's shown on the disassemble video. I just wanted to make sure they weren't taking extra steps for the full disassemble that need not be taken for what I'm looking to change. I printed out a copy of the manual earlier this morning, so when my parts come in, I should be set to go. I appreciate the help.
