In this guide, I’ll disassemble an Asus K53
Make sure the laptop is turned off before you start taking it apart
Unlock the battery and push on the release latch
Remove the battery
Unscrew all the screws (marked with red circle) on the bottom cover and put them in order
Pry the cover marked with yellow oval with a little force
After open the memory cover, remove the screw below and then unplug the motherboard power connector and the antenna.
Remove the screw after open the hard drive cover and take out the hard drive.
Then remove the optical drive and screws under it
The memory chips, the hard drive and the optical drive have been removed
Then remove the keyboard. Watch out, do not unplug the black cover marked with yellow oval.
Just lift it up and that’s enough.
Keep removing screws and unplug the connector
Remove the screw securing the motherboard and unplug the cable
Finally we can remove screws securing the fan, remove the fan and do some cleaning
