In this thread you’ll learn how to disassemble and modify an Asus Eee PC. I’ll be posting new instructions and guides as soon as I find them. If you find a new guide not mentioned in this thread feel free to leave a link in comments.
Guide 1. Taking apart Asus 701 and modifying the motherboard.
This guide (link removed) will help you to take apart an older Asus Eee PC 701.
You’ll find instructions for:
1. Taking apart the laptop base and removing the motherboard.
2. Taking apart the display panel and accessing the LCD screen.
3. Modifying the motherboard by installing two extra USB ports in the area of unused MiniPCI slot.
In the same guide you’ll learn how to take apart the display panel assembly and access the LCD screen. You can use this guide if you want to replace the LCD screen or inverter board.
You may ask: “Can I install a new 8.9 inch LCD screen on a 7 inch model?” This guy attempted replacing the screen.
..so the screen works, but BIOS needs to be hacked for full screen image.
..and you would need to modify the housing quite a lot.
Do you know how to hack the BIOS? Can you modify the housing? I guess the answer it NO.
Guide 2. Installing internal Bluetooth module into an Asus Eee 701.
This guide will walk you through the motherboard modification and installing an internal Bluetooth module into an Asus Eee 701.
I’ve added internal USB Bluetooth to my Eee without interfering with the built-in wireless, using the empty mini PCIe card slot, or disabling any of the available USB ports.
Guide 3. How to make an internal Bluetooth adapter from an external USB adapter.
Let’s say your Asus Eee PC doesn’t have internal Bluethooth adapter. Does it mean that your are stuck with using an external USB adapter? Apparently not.
Frustrated by the ugliness of plugging a USB bluetooth adaptor into my Eee PC, I decided that the best thing I could do was gut a bluetooth adapter and install it internally.
Check out this tutorial for converting your external USB adapter into the internal adapter.
Guide 4. Asus Eee 901 disassembled.
Actually it’s not a disassembly guide, but some pictures from the inside of the laptop. Could be very useful if you need to take a quick look at the motherboard.
