Introduction

This guide will show how to remove the back panel of the ASUS Portable AiO PT2001. Removing this panel is required to access the internal components.

  1. Remove the grey scuff guard at the bottom of the PC by pressing down on it, and pulling it away. Lift the hinge and remove the grey rubber tabs on either side of the PC’s model information. Remove the two 7.62mm Phillips #1 screws beneath the rubber tabs under the hinge and the four 7.62mm Phillips #1 screws where the scuff guard was removed.

    • Remove the two 4.74mm Phillips #1 screws under the hinge (near the hinge joints) and a 4.74mm Phillips #1 screw under the handle.

  2. Use 1-2 plastic opening tools or nylon spudgers to firmly pry open the back panel. We recommend that you start prying the panel where the scuff guard was removed. Prying the back panel will cause loud popping noises. This is just the sound of the clips that hold the back panel to the PC popping off.

  3. Disconnect the three cables connecting the back panel ports to the motherboard. Flip up the locking latch holding the two ribbon cables with a plastic opening tool and pull the cables out. Gently wiggle the third connector out of its socket.
