I don't see any retention modules anywhere. If you can picture this it might help: Flip the notebook over and directly front and center is the cover for the ram. To the left on the outside of the notebook is the battery bay and to the right is the NIC card cover. The hard drive plate and hd are located directly beneath the ram, but no retention modules or anything are present.
EDIT:This is proving to be a big pain!
