Replacement of the SSD.

  • METHOD 1: Use a plastic pry tool to pop the back of the tablet off. Be careful the aluminum back is attached via plastic hooks.

  • METHOD 2: Access by removing the screen (suggested by Quantum Byte)

  • If like me you are unable to find a gap to detach the aluminium back from the frame so instead I tried accessing by removing the screen using a sharp tool (a metal blade such as a Stanley knife or a flat-ended spudger) as in the video (not my work).

  • Unfortunately, this is not as easy as in the video as the entire outer edge seems to be glued. Furthermore, the screen cracks v. easily. Since my screen was already damaged, I ended up breaking up and tearing the screen off. I am perhaps not best to advise on this method.

  • I suggest using a hair dryer/ heat gun to melt the glue sufficiently to make the screen detach.

Hello, can you add some pictures of the operation for opening the cover ?

thanks

To open the Cover of TransformerBook T300LA start at the hinge on the bottom-side of your Tablet, and open the 2 screws first. Then use a plastic spatula from a Smartphone-Repair-Kit. Be very carefully, the cover should open easily.

  • The SSD is a M.2 NGFF style with a size of 80mm. The label states 3.3v 2A. If replaced with a lower power drive battery life might increase.

  • Unscrew the single screw on the end of the drive. Undo the tabs on the ribbon cable above it and take the ribbon out.

  • Remove the drive and replace with a larger new one.

Note that this guide does not work for the Asus T300 Chi which has an eMMC solid state drive soldered directly to the motherboard - you will need an eMMC reader and skill in removing soldered components to do this. Recommend taking to a data recovery professional in this case
