简介

If your computer is starting to slow down, freeze frequently, or display the blue screen of death then your hard drive may be failing. If your hard drive hasn't completely crashed yet then be sure to backup your precious data BEFORE replacing your hard drive.

  1. Remove the following Phillips #0 screws from the lower case:
    • Remove the following Phillips #0 screws from the lower case:

    • Six 9 mm screws

    • Four 11 mm screws

    Screws are 9mm instead of 90mm.

    Also the 2 screws in the back corner (screen attachement side) have a slighlty bigger diameter (9mm in length as well) so they are not to be mixed with others 9mm lenght screws.

    thank you, thank you for your comment. It's the only place on the entire www that makes that clarification.

  2. Use the plastic opening tool to separate the top cover from the laptop.
    • Use the plastic opening tool to separate the top cover from the laptop.

    • Start by prying on the front of the laptop.

    • Continue prying around the cover and end just under the screen to release the front cover.

    • Do not fully remove the top cover, it is attached by two ribbon cables that will be disconnected in the following steps.

    On my X555LA there seems to be a center snap or two that won't release. Edges are all free on all sides, but somewhere in the middle it's tied down with no give.

    It finally came loose, after one of two center snaps broke. It seems you are supposed to push the bezel slightly back towards screen as you start to lift it. Lift it too much at first, and they catch vigorously.

    Yes I encountered this problem as well, there are 2 very annoying clips at the center of the keyboard, a little force will be required to release them.

    Actually, after this step there’s a shortcut: go to step 7 (skip 3-6), don’t disconnect the ribbon cable, just peel it off the HDD carefully, move the board aside. Go to step 8, instead of “lifting” slide HDD out. Skip step 9.

    Saves at least 10 minutes and avoids disconnecting cables that don’t need to be disconnected.

    And how do you replace the actual keyboard - that's the key point missing here!

    Darren Wogan - 回复

    The keyboard and palm rest seem to need to be replaced as a single item. What about the mouse pad - this is a separate item, held on by three screws, which may well need to be swapped from the old keyboard and palm rest combination. However no mention is made of that here - why not? I thought IFixit was normally meant to be good with this sort of thing.

    Darren Wogan - 回复

    P.S. I bought a combined item (don’t even think about trying to do the keyboard alone). The mousepad does potentially need to be separated from the old keyboard rest and transferred to the new item. There are 3 screws to be undone - though these can be fiddly and stiff. Anyhow, mine was successfully replaced using this approach, including swapping the mousepad over as described.

    Nice that you posted a few pics, but you need at least a dozen more to really show people how to open this laptop. Getting outthe motherboard is not recommended for rookies!

    Why is it necessary to remove the HDD controller? this step seems useless to me when exchanging only the HDD.

    Laurent Potterat - 回复

    can the hard drive controller be changed someway?? without using salvage parts from the same model??? the laptop im fixing seems to be having an issue with this particular part (the laptop bsod something like dlfs.sys ). so, the hdd has been changed with a brand new seagate sshd. the problem still persist. what to do now????? the warranty is over now so that not even an option, although this has been brought to an authorized asus service center(bcoz there are no asus centers in my country wtf), they told me that the problem is really on the hdd. but i doubt it

    Did you ever figure this out? I have an X555LN that won’t recognize the hard drive and boots right to the BIOS, but the hard drive is fine in a USB enclosure. Friend said the laptop blue screened and then wouldn’t turn on. Thinking we might have similar problems!

    I also have a problem with the hard drive controller. My laptop only boots up when the power connector(shown above in the 1st step) is unplugged, odd.

hi. i have the same laptop. the laptop bsod on me after i used it for a good 6 months. suddenly, when i start the laptop, it always boots me to the bios, the hard drive is change because i thought it is the problem (i just followed the solutions online which is a lot regarding the issue). my suspection is the hard drive connector to the motherboard pcb. is there any way i can replace with or where can i buy replacements for this same part? please help i really need the laptop for my school needs, and sorry for the bad english

Cheej Guitarte - 回复

I had the same problem. Sorry but its also too expensive to repair and the repair doesnt solve problem %100

AYG -

Im having the same issue. My HDD fails to start when my hand is over the hdd connector (just slight pressure). Any solutions?

ieg -

This is caused by the connection socket on the PCB between the little PCB that plugs into the HDD and the motherboard. Turns out that the great amount of flex in the (crappy) plastic body of these laptops causes too much strain on the socket (opening and closing the screen) and eventually the connector breaks. I had to order a replacement PCB on Ali-express.

Great guide, thanks a lot. One thing to note, I found it wasn't necessary to remove the whole hard drive controller just to replace the HD. I was able to just remove the audio port board and then slide the drive away from the controller.

Thanks again!

This was a great guide, thanks! However being an experienced technician, it didn’t take but about 5-7 min. to get the hard drive out to where I could test, and verify that it had crashed.

Stanley Smith - 回复

I just wanted to ask how will this help? Not to be rude but this just seems to take the hard drive out leaving the computer completely useless. How does this repair the computer?

Reverse the steps, but replace the old hard drive with the new hard drive.
