Tools needed to disassemble dell latitude 3340.
To begin disassembly of your laptop I would recommend you use two tools. Those two tools are a hex tipped screw, and a flat tip screw driver. Now you can use a flat tip plastic tool to pry the corners of your laptop, but I use metal flat tips because it's eco friendly, and I've learned to be careful with metal on plastic contact. The hex tip is for removing the screws at the bottom of the laptop, and for behind any screws holding the frame underneath the keyboard.
How to upgrade ram on dell latitude 3440.
Listed in the picture above, you well see red high lights on places where screws are located. Make sure to use your hex screw and remove the screws holding the cover. After you remove them you can pop the cover off.
When you pop your cover off you'll then notice that underneath you are able to remove/replace your hard drive and ram.
To remove the RAM all you have to do is pull away the ram holding branches and pull out the ram. And place a new ram in with first by placing the ram inside the ram slot then pushing down. If your computer makes beeps or doesn't power on when attempting to power on your laptop with the new ram stick in. Then try placing the old one in. If it works great, if it does not then you either have different Ram types, frequencies, or shot ram. This particular dell latitude 3440 uses a ram of DDR3L-1600 SODIMM. So make sure you have the exact ram type. Or it may not even power on.
How to upgrade hard drive on dell latitude 3340.
Make sure that you remove the screw that is holding the cover behind your laptop. You can reference the screw location, using the picture listed below.
When you remove that lid, you will notice a ram, and hard drive beneath your dell latitude laptop cover.
If your laptop does power on, but it displays the following message:
- Boot device not found.
Then you need to reinstall windows 10 on your dell latitude laptop. To do that you need a USB, with windows preinstalled on the USB. You then enter the bios, and boot using the USB. If you see that the hard drive isn't listed as a hard drive located within the laptop, that means you didn't connect the hard drive properly, or you have a bad hard drive. You can test this out by connecting your laptop's hard drive, and connecting it to an external hard drive to USB cable. And connect it to your laptop to see if it pops up. In some cases you may need to initialize it or change the format for your hard drive to a native windows file format partion.
How to replace keyboard on dell latitude 3340.
To replace a keyboard on your laptop, you must first use your flat tip on the following points to pop out your keyboard.
When you pop it out you should make sure to take it out slowly to not damage the keyboard to motherboard cable underneath the keyboard. The next step is to open your keyboard cable locker, and pull out the cable and then place your replacement keyboard back into that same position.
