View Full Version : Snapped piece off of bottom cover, now it's floating around...

As I took the bottom cover off to throw in a new HyperX 3k SSD into my G75, I noticed one of the small little hook-like pieces that you pop into the back snapped off. It is by my back left fan, and I am SUPER worried that it's gonna get caught up back there and either a.) mess with the filter. b.) get in the way of the air flow. or c.) putt pressure on a precious part of the computer.

I have tried getting it out for almost 2 hours, and I don't know an effective way of doing so. I don't want to hurt the laptop, but I gotta get this thing out...any suggestions?

Use a vacuum cleaner to suck it out.

ah Ive had almost all of mine broken, it arrived with 3 of them broken. no idea where to buy a new one since I would like a new buttom cover xD
but shake the laptop around if you cant see the bits, they should come out fairly easy. and dont worry they wont short circut anything in there.
