How to replace the magnetic lid switch

I have a X501X.

The magnetic switch which detect when you close and open the laptop has stopped working.

Because this switch fails the laptop does not turn on the display and it shutdown when I try to restart it.

The lid switch is placed on the PCB on the upper left corner where the power cord is connector is placed.

As I can see the part number of the switch is X31A.

But I am not able to find it anywhere.

If somebody knows where to find a spare part I can use or how to disable this switch function, this will help me a lot.

I have Ask ASUS but they just told me to go to a repair shop.

But as an Electronic Engineer I would feel a little stupid if I am not able to replace a simple component my self.

Thanks

The problem is that.

I can not turn on the screen any longer.

So I am not able even able to set the BIOS settings.

I believe that the switch is dead, because it does not react on a magnet.

Note. I the laptop is running Linux(Ubuntu).

Thanks

Hi,

Try connecting an external monitor to enable you to use the computer until you get it fixed

If you can't find a switch, then try altering the settings in Control Panel > Power Options > advanced > Power Buttons and Lid

hopefully this will be of some help.

p.s. presumably, you tested the switch function with a magnet, just in case the one positioned in the lid has shifted.
