Inside Dell Vostro 16 7620 – disassembly and upgrade options

1. Remove the bottom plate

To get inside this notebook, you need to undo 9 Phillips-head screws. Two of them are captive, and lift the two top corners of the bottom panel. This allows you to easily open the panel with a plastic tool.


2. Battery

Our device came with the smaller 56Wh package. It lasts for 7 hours of Web browsing or 6 hours of video playback. To get the battery out, you have to undo 5 Phillips-head screws. Then, unplug the connector from the motherboard and lift it away.


3. Memory and storage

Here, you get 8GB of DDR5 RAM soldered, while a single SODIMM slot allows you to expand the memory to up to 40GB. Storage-wise, there is one M.2 PCIe x4 slot with Gen 4 SSD support.


4. Cooling system

The cooling comprises a total of three heat pipes, three heat sinks, and two fans. Thankfully, the VRMs and the graphics memory have heat spreaders on top.
