I’ve got a brand new MSI Bravo 15 AMD Ryzen 7 4800H laptop A4DDR-212IN, Model MS-16WK. I want to open it up and upgrade the RAM and storage drives. I looked at the video and this laptop appears to be easy to upgrade. The video shows an EC (embedded controller) reset being done before removing the back cover.
Does the EC usually need to be reset before upgrading the RAM and storage drives on a laptop? I just want to make sure resetting the EC is normal procedure and won’t hurt anything.
