Introduction

This guide will step you through replacing the battery in the Asus X555LA.

  1. Use a #0 Phillips screw driver to remove the 90mm screws from the outer case (6 screws).
    • Use a #0 Phillips screw driver to remove the 90mm screws from the outer case (6 screws).

    • Use a #0 Phillips screw driver to remove the 1.1cm screws from the outer case (4 screws).

    Screws are 9mm instead of 90mm.

    Also the 2 screws in the back corner (screen attachement side) have a slighlty bigger diameter (9mm in length as well) so they are not to be mixed with others 9mm lenght screws.

    thank you, thank you for your comment. It's the only place on the entire www that makes that clarification.

  2. Use the plastic opening tool to separate the keyboard from the bottom cover.
    • Use the plastic opening tool to separate the keyboard from the bottom cover.

    • Start by prying on the front of the laptop.

    • Continue prying around the cover and end just under the screen to release the front cover.

    • The keyboard assembly is not fully released until steps three and four are complete.

    On my X555LA there seems to be a center snap or two that won't release. Edges are all free on all sides, but somewhere in the middle it's tied down with no give.

    It finally came loose, after one of two center snaps broke. It seems you are supposed to push the bezel slightly back towards screen as you start to lift it. Lift it too much at first, and they catch vigorously.

    Yes I encountered this problem as well, there are 2 very annoying clips at the center of the keyboard, a little force will be required to release them.

    And how do you replace the actual keyboard - that's the key point missing here!

    The keyboard and palm rest seem to need to be replaced as a single item. What about the mouse pad - this is a separate item, held on by three screws, which may well need to be swapped from the old keyboard and palm rest combination. However no mention is made of that here - why not? I thought IFixit was normally meant to be good with this sort of thing.

    P.S. I bought a combined item (don’t even think about trying to do the keyboard alone). The mousepad does potentially need to be separated from the old keyboard rest and transferred to the new item. There are 3 screws to be undone - though these can be fiddly and stiff. Anyhow, mine was successfully replaced using this approach, including swapping the mousepad over as described.

If the Asus f555la battery is buying at Chennai,if any availability?? Response to ashokkumara24@gmail.com.

Hmmm. A couple of the screw lengths look a bit suspect. At step 1, the six 90mm screws? That’s nearly four inches long!! And at step 6, three 50mm screws? I haven’t started this yet, but my guess is that the respective lengths should be 9mm and 5mm respectively. But apart from that, the article reads very well; just what I was looking for. Thanks!

how many hours will this battery last? I bought a new laptop Asus x455L and the fully charged battery only lasts 3 hours. I’ve already adjusted my screen brightness to 40% and turned off WIFI & Bluetooth

I have a ‘hand-me-down’ from my partners replacement dream fulfillment. Replaced the battery and removed the small flat strap. I figure it is for the touch mouse pad. Since I never use the touch pad, I removed the small frat strap and all appears to be working (less the touch pad of course.)
