Basically, the sliding catch which releases the battery has came off. The screw which held it in place has obviously came loose over time. I stripped the laptop down to motherboard level and still cannot fathom an easy way to fix the slide catch back in place with removing the motherboard completely. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
It seems to be that the issue lies with the housing assembly. (If this is an m18x R1 or m18x R2)
If you want, I can take a look into your computer. (I will need the Service tag though). Can you please send me a PM with the Tag and a link to this post?
