Asus G55 ang G75 disassembly / teardown

Maybe these links will help some of you.

http://computerupgradeking.com/wiki/index.php?title=ASUS_G75VW_Disassembly_Manual and some info here as well http://forum.notebookreview.com/asus-gaming-notebook-forum/667905-g75vw-5ghz-wireless-2.html

And there is a video for G55 here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWqDjAQgMaY&feature=g-like

Take things easy and you should be fine. Remember that this will void warranty!

So I did this for the G75. I do not understand why it will void warranty. It's in fact extremly simple. Much simple than one might think at first sight. I was a little bit worried. There should be some void warranty stickers for important stuff (for example removing the MB itself maybe, even it's the only way to repaste. But just to change RAM and WiFi card, it should be fine. Even those ribbons snap into pace quite easy.

Asus also did a great job with the A-B-C screws marks. There is no way not to know where every single screw goes.

As a down side, there is little room to take out the fans for cleaning without removings the screen. In on laptop after only one month, there is quite a bit of dust. In my country damage done by dust over component falls outside warranty. I've said it before, there is no way to clean G55 and even with G75, a proper cleaning means taking the fans out.

The video for the g55 is not working from 2:30-4.05...
Would be nice if you could upload a tutorial like the one for the g75.
Thanks!

There is also this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9KHrJKInmA. I love this girl, she makes tearing down the G75 feel almost like surgery.;)

Nice topic for a sticky.

I think that re-pasting CPU and GPU should be considered as procedure that does not void warranty. Also change of the default RAM sticks.

I do not have official service in my country I think, but also why do I need to reply on services if there is something that I can do on my own.

Mayeb something to be considered in the future models of the G series.

A good reason for opening one's computer consists in changing the fans, which are often cheap and noisy crap. Replacing them with high-end fans produced by epmPapst or Noctua results in both better cooling and lower noise.

It is a pity that manufacturers do not do this right away, because heat and noise are two major annoyances with mobile computers, but at least they should it make as easy as possible to upgrade the fans, instead of insisting on absurd policies that void the warranty in case of such a reasonable upgrade that fosters both performance and longevity of the device.

the fans in the g55 are quiet. it's louder when they are spinning at top speed; however, it's still quiet to me, compared to other brands.

I inquired about how to go about changing all RAM from ASUS tech support and received this reply, which I thought I'd share: it seem we can do the tear-down as long as we're confident we know what we're doing. Any damage we do in the process would void the warranty, but not the actual fact of replacing the RAM if we do no damage. Good to know.

Dear Mr. Weiner,

Thank you for your email,

First of all, if you know how to upgrade the RAM yourself, this can be done without violation of our warranty terms.
Just make sure you do not induce any damage, replacement of RAM is no violation on its own.

If you are not sure on how you can do this, we can be of your assistance.
In this case, you can apply for RMA on our website:

https://eu-rma.asus.com/pick_eu/nl/

When you want this replacement done by us, you need to send the RAM that needs to be fitted in to system along with your notebook.
With such a replacement you will be charged for handling fee, at a maximum of 75,-.

Als u verder nog vragen heeft, dan horen wij dat graag.
If anything is unclear, please let us know.

Met vriendelijke groet/ Kind regards,

Bertrand Juffer,
