How To Replace Hard Drive on ASUS F555LA

Many of Asus f555la reviewers do mention that one of the con of this laptop is the hard drive, which is a 500 GB 5400 RPM HDD, check out this post, if you want to get the similar model with a 1tb HDD.

Another affordable model, which is the k501lx, has even SSD already installed.

There was also someone who commented in the Asus x550za review post, asking if he could missed something in order to open the laptop panel.

So I recently found a good video tutorial on how to do this, and here are a few things you will need.

Things to prepare before replacing HDD

1. Small screw drivers

USB External Hard Drive Not Showing on Finder But on Disk Utility

Select the external drive, and click Repair Disk

Almost losing my files on my USB external HD last week, thankfully it worked after long time looking for a solution on Google.

Here is my situation. I had my external hard drive disconnected from my Mac many times (with Mavericks OS), and finally my external hard drive was not showing on finder, including the partitions (I have two of them). So I tried to disconnect the HDD and reconnected it again, also waited for a period of time, and still could not see them.

However, I could see it on Disk Utility. You can hit “CMD + Space” keys, and will display spotlight, type, “Disk Utility” to open it. In case you need a new external HDD check out Amazon for the affordable best seller.
