It is rather easy. There is a switch/latch on the bottom of the laptop which is used to remove the battery. It will be marked for battery on one side, and the panel on the other side. First slide it to remove the battery. After that, slide it in the opposite direction, and the back panel will pop-up from one side. You can then easily remove the panel by pulling it out, and later re-insert it when you are done. I can't post pictures now as I am in office. But I hope this will be helpful.

i just open the back cover of my 6121tx to see the components inside that.
will it void my warranty ? i open it using the switch.

u can try those recovery discs , i think so while doing recovery whole HDD is repartitioned & that if u were lucky ... recovery drive may create through the recovery discs while doing recovery.....

is it really works ?
now i cant access my recovery partition by pressing the F11 key on start up. what can i do ? :(:(:(

How to increase the computer speed from 2.0 ghz to turbo 2.9 ghz ???
:?

What I know, its automated. Once the system is in turbo boost, the processor automatically determines the maximum frequency it can operate at based on operating conditions.

Though this may not be the right thread to ask this question. Still I would like to go through with it which is clearing the query regarding PhysX.

I recently played Batman Arkham Asylum, got to learn about the PhysX technology the game supports. I know the Nvidia PhysX driver is pre-installed in this laptop, but does it actually work with the ATI graphics card for games supported?
(I did not get much of a noticeable difference regarding the Physics)

Although, from other forums I came to learn there are modded versions of PhysX compatible with ATI cards but the version pre-packed. Does it work, anyone atleast on the basis of your gameplay experience?

PhysX can be directly downloaded and installed from Nvidia's website, And I've played Mafia2 after enabling PhysX. Works well

There is no heating issue,when gaming it will reach max. 70 degrees.Left side of touch pad might get heated during gaming ,it is normal ,same happens with Dell Inspirons with graphics cards.

@gamefreak 6017tx, 6121tx and 6165tx have the same design and nearly same processor. None of them have any heating issues. If you are concerned with other replies that you've got refer to my siggy
