Taking apart the M20Taking apart an Olivetti M20 is fairy simple and is described in this page. The drawings shown are taken from the original Olivetti Hardware Manual. If you plan to open the power supply, you should consider to leave the computer disconnected from mains for several hours in order to let the capacitors in the flyback switching power supply discharge. Opening this computer is very easy; the inside is well engineered in order to simplify access and repairing.
To open the M20, you only need a simple plate screwdriver.
Remove the keyboard. Note that it is not screwed to the base with screws, but it is hold in position by tabs and by the top cover. You should also disconnect the cable which connects the keyboard to the main board (connector J11).
