In this guide I’ll explain how to disassemble an Asus A450.
Turn off the laptop first.
We’ll start from the bottom cover.
Remove 10 screws first.
Then we can pry up the gap on the side with curved hard wedge and remove the whole cover.
The design is not good because there’s no other place for air to get in except from the memory chips, which can influence the dissipation of the laptop.
Remove the screws on the right and we can remove the optical drive.
Then the hard drive.
Remove the screws securing the hard drive
Then the screen cable. Unplug it directly.
And the external power cable connector.
Double copper tube radiator
Ribbon wires around the fan. Remove them.
Then we can remove the screws securing the fan and take out the radiator.
Then remove the louder speaker.
And there’s only motherboard left.
