Use this guide to take off the back cover of the HP 15-da0002dx laptop. The back cover of a laptop is taken off in order to expose the components inside of a computer to replace or clean them.

Before using this guide, power off the computer and wait for the components to cool. Working over a non-carpeted surface will reduce the risk of ESD damage (electrostatic discharge). A non-carpeted surface should not be able to conduct electricity and is connected to a grounded surface. Another way to reduce the risk of ESD damage is by using a plastic tool when removing the battery as plastic does not conduct electricity.
