You don't. Nobody touched it.
What I know of hardware would go in a gnat's eye. But when the
tech unscrewed the two little screws and took the back plate off (NB :
voiding the warranty), the memory stick slipped out and the new one in,
just like in any other computer.
With a slight push at the exposed corner, the card comes far
enough out to pull the rest of the way, and the new one slips in.
No soldering iron need apply.

checking out umpteen distros; some of them might be able to use those --
