    i know K is for keyboard, if you unscrew it, you can take it out

    what about P?

    Processor? Power Supply? Pointer?

    I don't know really what you are talking about though, take a pic.

    Are you referring "back" of your laptop as the bottom? Or the back where your serial port is? If it's on the bottom of your laptop it's more than likley your RAM Modules, since those are removable too. If it's on the back, it might be your battery, since those are removable also.

    Dude, you've got a Dell. (Sorry, but it's been sooo long since I've said it)

    AFAIK, they're just references. In the service manual it tells the technician which screws he needs to remove to accomplish different tasks.

    Do yourself a favour and DON'T take it apart. I've been servicing Dells for a couple years now. You don't want to go screwing around with it. Just in case. ;)
