  1. Curious, what kind of connector does the display use if I need to source a replacement? Is it a 40-pin? Will a similar lcd be compatible if I can’t find an exact model screen from the manufacturer?

    • Please use a thin plastic tool insert between the cover and laptop body, and slide the tool to release these snaps.

  5. Hi. What SATA HDD connector for Matebook D [mrc-w50]? What number of pin [10 or 12]?
    I’ve found DD0H95HD010 [jse 18/11/19] on aliexpress. Is it fit for my laptop?

  6. Hi Paweł and others.
    I ordered DD0H95HD010 on eBay for $3.99 + shipment and it works perfectly fine with 1TB SSD drive.
    Easy to connect, easy to set up in W10.

    Cheers guys!!!

  7. Can the laptop work with the battery removed (but plugged into a socket of course)? I am asking because after a few years its common for laptop batteries to die and not be replaced. Instead the laptop is plugged in and used as a desktop.

  8. Hello! I have Matebook D (2018). Can you please tell me, what is the rated limit for Ram upgrade. As I am wondering to install 16 GB Ram in the second slot which is empty. The laptop had already 8 gb installed ram at first slot.

    • Mine had 2 4gb sticks in it from factory. I took one out & added a 16gb stick. My laptop is showing 20gb total now. I’m certain you could even add 2 32gb sticks for 64gb total if you wanted to. The laptop should have no issues using it.
