Removing the top cover is a mandatory step before to access the keyboard screw and go deeper inside the Eee PC 1215N.

  1. Turn the power off and turn the netbook upside down.
    • Turn the power off and turn the netbook upside down.

    • Slide both battery catches together to release the battery.

    • Slide the battery out.

    While there is a fairly long list of tools listed here, I was able to complete the entire guide using only a 3/64" flathead mini screwdriver (the kind you get for $0.99). I replaced the stock 500GB 5400RPM drive with the updated 7200RPM slim drive of the same line with no issues. The BIOS picked it up immediately, and I need only reinstall an OS.

    Missing step: remove the two screws under the battery, otherwise the keyboard won’t come off

      • For top cover removing, only remove the 2 bottom screws.

      • For Keyboard removing, remove all 4 screws.

      • The one short screw paterns to uper left screw hole directly on the PCB.

Unrelated. My Asus VX-6 recently had the blue USB 3.0 ports stop working. Now the Ethernet connection is intermittent, goes away, come back, over and over again. Are those 3 ports on the right hand side part of the main board or separate boards?
