In this post I explain how to disassemble Asus K-series notebook and get access to main internal parts. I believe disassembly steps will be same or very similar for all models in Asus K line. Now you can separate the HDD from the caddy and replace it with a new one if needed. Spread latches on both sides of the memory module and after the module pops up at a 30 degree angle, carefully pull it from the slot by the edges. In this particular notebook I found only one memory slot.

In this post I explain how to disassemble Asus K-series notebook and get access to main internal parts. I believe disassembly steps will be same or very similar for all models in Asus K line.
Now you can separate the HDD from the caddy and replace it with a new one if needed. Spread latches on both sides of the memory module and after the module pops up at a 30 degree angle, carefully pull it from the slot by the edges.
In this particular notebook I found only one memory slot. It looks like some memory was integrated into the motherboard. On the following picture the connector is shown in unlocked position. Now you can pull the cable from the connector. Do you have any idea how to reset de bios password?
I spotted the battery and i removed it but no success so far, i cannot access the bios. If you have any idea if there is any place to short two pins or something please let me know. Also do you have any idea where to find a service manual? I was wondering that in such a manual a bios rest procedure should be mentioned… as it is the case with some Toshiba laptops. When I pressed ON button, only fan sound on.
Other part such as LED and Hardisk are not on. What is the problem? How to unplug CMOS battery? Do I need to unplug other parts also?? Could be memory module failure. If you have memory module installed into the external slot, try removing it and test the laptop. I was just wondering whether you could please provide instruction on how to replace the LCD screen on this model laptop.
Hi mate…. I urgently need to replace the touchpad on this model laptop…I have disassembled up until the end of your tutorial but something is still catching and I am at a bit of a loss and do not want to break anything??
Yor help would be greatly appreciated!! I have a K50IJ and when it attempts to power on, the power button light and the power light on the front of the laptop turn on for about 1. Then it shuts off. This happens on battery or AC. I get no display at all. I remove the hard drive, memory, and disconnected the wireless network card, and it still does the same thing.
Do you have any suggestions replace cooling fan, replace MB? And possibly a suggestion on where to buy parts? You should get video on the screen even with bad fan. If you have two memory modules installed, try removing them one by one not both at the same time. Test your laptop with each module separately, try different slots. This could be memory failure.
As a last resort, you can try taking it apart completely and test just barebone system: motherboard, memory, CPU with heatsink. Test it with an external monitor. If it starts in basic configuration, start adding parts.
Hi, could you help me how can I repair the touch pad? How can I remove the all bottom cover? Thanks in advance! Remove keyboard as it shown in this guide. Remove all screws on the bottom of the laptop. Remove all screws under the keyboard if there are any. Disconnect all cables under the keyboard.
Separate top cover from the bottom cover. Hello, What is the best way to clear the fan on my laptop with some households material, like vacuum cleaner? What is the best way to clear the fan on my laptop with some households material, like vacuum cleaner? Some people say that vacuum cleaners create static and you can damage the motherboard if you use a vacuum for cleaning the fan. Instead, I would suggest using compressed air for computers.
You can try cleaning the cooling module without opening the laptop case. Just blow air into the fan grill on the bottom and then into the grill on the side. If you have an easy access to the fan as shown in this tutorial , simply remove the cover and blow air directly into the fan. It has all those 5 screws you have mentioned. I remove them and tried to slide the bottom cover but it wont slide. I tried to lift it up a little and slide it, but it seems it is stuck somewhere near the battery compartment, to the very left side of the picture.
Are there any more screws or attachments that I need to open, or I just need to use more force. I am suspecting a loose video cable and just want to reattach it firmly. Am I even looking at the right place in the latptop? I really cannot tell because your cover is a little bit different. In my case I had to apply some force to slide the cover but not sure if this will apply to your laptop. Just use common sense. Take a closer look at the cover and look for any hidden screws.
You can find a very small adapter. Thanks so much — I was trawling the net for ages about to give up when I found this page. I have asus k40IN. I just want to ask you: 1. Is the tutorial applicable to my k40in? Compare your laptop with one in my tutorial. If it looks similar, most likely you can use the guide. The cooling fan is located under the bottom cover and can be easily removed.
Are you taking it apart just to clean the cooling fan? Just remove the fan and blow it off with compressed air. Sir, can you make a tutorial on how to replace the lcd bezel on Asus K series notebook? I wish to upgrade the processor to an i7 M and increase the memory to 8GB. My question is can the K disassembly instructions work on the X52F series? Thanks for your great site.
I have taken the back cover off, but it seems as though I need to remove the entire top cover and probably the keyboard. Any advice? Thanks in advance, and excellent write-up! You are correct. Removing the back cover is not enough. Remove screws from the bottom, remove keyboard, remove screws located under the keyboard and separate the top cover from the base. Take a look at other guides to get the idea. Most laptops share same disassembly steps.
Great tutorial , thank you for sharing it. Do I need to open it from beneath and do all the steps you previously showed or is there a way to open it from the front. Thank you in advance. I want to clean cooler of my ASUS. My ASUS is a little different than your. My cooler remove heat from processor and graphics card. Here is link to pictures of my ASUS so please look, and if you have any idea let me know.
Sorry for my bad english. Grim, to answer your question, you need to remove the half round hinge covers first then remove the screw on each hinge.
Another satisfied customer! Fortunately, some of the steps are very identical and everything went fine. Thanks for the post! Helped me in restarting my CMOS battery. May I ask.

How to Reformat an Asus Laptop
Asus laptops include recovery software, installed to a hidden partition on the hard drive, that you can use to reinstall Windows in case of system failure. You can also use the software to wipe all of the data off the drive and restore the laptop to its factory default condition. If your computer performs slower than normal, contains viruses or displays numerous errors, you can reformat, or erase, the contents of the drive and start over fresh. Transfer any important business-related files to an alternate storage device before proceeding, as the process removes all old files from the drive. Turn on or reboot the computer and press "F9" when the boot screen appears. If you wait too long and the Windows logo appears, repeat the process. Ruri Ranbe has been working as a writer since
