I recently started to disassemble my laptop to clean the heatsink from dusts and other particles. I was almost done disassembling it until I reached the point where I need to unplug the cables that are attached to the motherboard so my case would separate. This is where I am stuck, how do I unplug those cables?

Laptop: Asus U35JC

Hello Xtreme930

The blue tabs that are attached are for you to use to draw the connection out of the socket, keep the tab almost level and gently ease the connection out of the socket, a little bit of left and right wiggling of the connection as you go often helps :)
