Ram upgrade laptop

Mauvaiz

Hello,

 

I would like to upgrade the memory of my laptop.

The laptop has a compartment which you can take off, and from that you have acces to the memory, Hard drive and a m2 SSD.

 

Normally i take the battery out first before i change the ram or ssd, but this laptop has a non removable battery.

Is it safe to put new memory or a SSD in the laptop without removing the battery?

 

My laptop:

No.

Remove the battery.

It is better than maybe getting electrocuted.

Generally speaking , you can. You just need to take the right precautions.

 

1. Make sure that you power down the laptop properly by holding down the power button for 5 seconds and this is like a hard shutdown for the laptop.

 

2. Make sure you either ; wear a antistatic wristband or at least work on a hard floor with a table . This is to stop you giving the components a static shock.

Thank you for your answer.

 

I have a wooden floor and table, so that's no problem.

 

The funny thing is, why does Asus make such a easy compartment to upgrade your components?

You should think it doesn't matter if the battery still sits in.

Haha that’s true. They do it on higher end laptops so that you can increase there longevity rather than just getting a new laptop. They also assume that if you paid a lot for a higher spec laptop, then you have some knowledge on computer components
