This article is not a guide to action! All responsibility for the collection and disassembly of your device lies with you.
Many manufacturers do not accept warranty obligations if the device has been disassembled by the user. If you do not want to void the warranty for your device, check the warranty conditions in the documentation or with the device manufacturer.
So, let’s start disassembling the Lenovo G570 laptop (model number: 4334).
Before starting disassembly, be sure to turn off the laptop.
Unscrew the 4 screws securing the bottom cover of the laptop (circled in the picture).
Remove the 2 screws securing the hard drive module (circled in the picture).
Slide the hard drive to the left to disconnect it from the motherboard.
Lift and remove the hard disk drive.
You will need to remove the hard drive holder and its aluminum shield and install them on the new hard drive.
NOTE: We do not think a shield is needed if you are replacing the drive with a solid state drive (SSD).
Now remove 2 screws from each side of the hard drive module and remove the holder.
Lenovo G570 laptop has a regular 2.5-inch SATA hard drive.
It can be swapped out for any other larger 2.5 “SATA hard drive or 2.5” SSD (solid state drive) drive, which is more expensive but faster and quieter. We prefer branded SSDs like Crucial, Kingston, OCZ.
After replacing the hard drive, you will have to reinstall the operating system.
Both memory modules can be accessed through the bottom of the laptop case.
To remove the memory modules, you need to pull in different directions on the latches on the sides of the memory module slot.
The memory modules will slide out at a 30 degree angle.
Gently grasp the memory module by the edges and pull it out of the slot in the direction of the arrow in the picture.
The Lenovo G570 laptop (model number: 4334) can accommodate up to 8GB of RAM. Each slot can accommodate memory modules with a capacity of up to 4 GB. We use the following memory modules: PC3-10600 DDR3 SDRAM SODIMM 204 pin.
NOTE: To use all 8GB of RAM, your laptop must have a 64-bit operating system.
Next, let’s look at replacing the cooler. If the cooler starts to make noise, it can be easily removed and replaced. To remove the fan, you will have to disconnect 1 cable from the motherboard (indicated by the red arrow in the picture) and unscrew 3 screws (circled).
Then lift and remove the fan. If the radiator is clogged with dust, it can be cleaned with compressed air.
Disassembly is complete! Reassemble in reverse order.

The laptop is equipped with a matrix with LED backlight with a diagonal of 15.6 inches. The screen resolution is 1366×768 pixels. The display has a cinematic 16: 9 aspect ratio, so HD video can be viewed without black bars at the top and bottom of the screen. Colors on a bright colorful matrix look natural and realistic, the picture seems to come to life. Contrast, saturation, sharpness. all these characteristics are “on top”. The main disadvantage of the screen is the glossy surface. In sunlight and in bright artificial light, the picture becomes unreadable and faded.
The viewing angles of the screen are close to standard. They are slightly larger horizontally, and less vertically. When the display lid is tilted, the colors are inverted quite a lot. However, this should not affect the quality and comfort of work.
The speaker system is represented by two speakers of 1.5 W each. They sound quite loud and clear, but there is no need to expect deep bass from the acoustics.
Review Lenovo G570 Notebook
Lenovo has recently updated the G line with several models. These laptops belong to the basic series, they are characterized by affordability, functionality and high build quality. Cheap doesn’t always mean bad. The Chinese brand confirms a simple truth. A striking proof of this is the Lenovo G570 laptop.
The Lenovo G570 is an affordable laptop with the performance of an expensive device. It is equipped with a second generation Intel Core processor and is Enhanced Experience Certified for the Windows 7 operating system. One of the key strengths of Lenovo Enhanced Experience Certified products is to fine-tune system performance to maximize efficiency. The laptop has an attractive design, well-thought-out ergonomics and is equipped with a huge set of useful features and technologies. Lenovo G570 is comfortable to work and relax.
Processor and performance
This laptop can be equipped with 2nd generation Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 processors, come with Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Home Basic, Windows 7 Home Premium and up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM. Information can be stored on hard drives with a capacity of 250 GB / 320 GB / 500 GB / 640 GB / 750 GB (spindle speed 5400 rpm) or 320 GB / 500 GB (spindle speed 7200 rpm).
So, the Lenovo G570 (59064763) is equipped with an Intel Core i3-2310M processor with a frequency of 2.1 GHz. It is a dual core CPU based on Sandy Bridge architecture. It supports multi-threading Hyperthreading technology, has 3 MB of L3 cache.
The new i3-2310M is equipped with an integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000. This adapter is faster than the Intel HD Graphics integrated in Arrandale chips. In addition, the processor has an improved dual channel DDR3 memory controller.
The graphics in the laptop are handled by a discrete AMD Radeon HD 6370M graphics card with 1 GB of video memory. The adapter supports DirectX 11, Shader 5.0 and is equipped with a UVD 2.2 video decoder.
This configuration provides 3072 MB of DDR3 RAM. However, as you may have guessed, this volume can be increased up to 8 GB. The information will be stored on a hard disk with a capacity of 320 GB (5400 rpm).
Keyboard and touchpad
The laptop is equipped with a full-size island-style keyboard (AccuType). All buttons are at a decent distance from each other, each has a rounded shape, reminiscent of a military shield. For greater comfort, the keys are made concave, they have excellent mechanical properties. It is a pleasure to work with such a keyboard. There was a place for a full-fledged digital block on the topcase. All keys are in place, there should be no complaints about the layout.
The touchpad has a dotted surface, so that the cursor is positioned clearly and easily. This is not to say that it is easy for your fingers to slide along the touch pad, so for more comfort it is better to connect the manipulator. There is a vertical scroll bar on the right, and two large, separate buttons are located under the touchpad.
Lenovo G570 combines style, restraint, grace and harmony. The body of the device is made of smooth glossy plastic. May be black or brown. An exquisite ebb is barely noticeable on the lid. This design solution has both aesthetic and functional components. Thanks to this coating, fingerprints and scratches will not be very conspicuous. However, whatever one may say, because of the mirroring of the case, the Lenovo G570 can hardly be called practical. At least outside.
The lid is beveled at the corners, which makes the laptop look more compact. The interior of the laptop is more practical than the exterior. The solid polished topcase will not leave traces of everyday use. As for the build quality, there should be no questions here. All components fit, no squeaks or sags.
Ports and communications
On the sides of this device, the user will find 4 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, RJ-45, VGA, a microphone jack, a headphone jack, a Kensington lock slot, a DVD-RW optical drive (DVDR Double Layer support) and a card reader. A 0.3 megapixel webcam is provided for Skype communication.
The laptop has quite a lot of useful functions. For example, Lenovo ReadyComm helps manage networks and Internet connections. Lenovo DirectShare lets you sync files from another laptop without an internet connection. Lenovo Energy Management employs advanced energy-saving technologies and OneKey Rescue System to simplify data backup and recovery. There is also a VeriFace security feature.
Bluetooth adapters (optional) and Wi-Fi 802.11g are responsible for access to wireless networks.
The package includes a 4100 mAh Li-Ion battery. With it, the laptop can work up to 5 hours.
