From personal experience, I can tell you this will be a pain in the a$$. All laptops Ive dismantled have been exactly that. Dismantled to the literal core. After several attempts, I realized the top case is the most effective way to get to the inside. This means removing the keypad and monitor part. The key is to KEEP ALL SCREWS SAFE and either remembering or making a small diagram of where and how all wires and screws were originally. All models are different and that makes it harder to help. Where did you get the idea that your CPU fried? Just wondering if you can avoid opening it at all costs.

Dude, your CPU is NOT fried! In your other post you said it comes on for 30 seconds or so then shuts down. If anything, it's overheating & shutting down to protect itself. Try blasting some compressed air into the cooling vents. The CPU heatsink is probably all dust clogged.
