Hi All,

I need to replace the BIOS battery in an Asus X50R laptop. Does anyone have the Asus X50R laptop service manual or can anyone describe the specific procedure to replace the BIOS battery, preferably with diagrams or photos.

Thanks,
Simon

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the pointers and the link to the photo.

The photo is useful because I've now got a better idea of where the BIOS battery is, but I couldn't find what I was looking for at the site you mentioned. Specifically I'm seeking disassembly instructions for the Asus x50r laptop - I couldn't find any reference to the x50r. Does this site use some alternative method for identification?

Cheers,
Simon

What you need is a service manual for your machine.

Have a look at this site http://repair4laptop.org/disassembly_asus.html
There is a description on how to remove the keyboard for your model. That could give you a kick start point to disassemble your machine.

Dissassembly is straightforward and you need to remove all visible screws. There is one hidden screw that is not obviously visible and it is underneath the fan and this was the one that was stumping me. You need to remove the fan to get access to this hidden screw and once the fan is removed dissassembly can be completed easily.

There is no need to remove the decorative strip above the keyboard. The hidden screw underneath the fan appeared as though it might actually be located underneath this decorative strip and I received advice on other forums actually confirming incorrectly that this was the case. But there were in fact no screws underneath this strip and there is a risk of damage to the strip if you attempt to remove it.

It was a pain that virtually complete dissassembly of the laptop was required to gain access the BIOS battery.
