I'm trying to take my CD/DVD drive out of my Asus model x-54c. I've take out every screw I could see & I've popes the whole outer clips on the laptop. It seems there's either a screw I can't get to or a clip in the middle holding it from coming apart.
I have not disassembled that laptop specifically but on all asus laptops I have taken apart, the screw is under the keyboard. You will have to use a small precision screwdriver or even better a spudger to move the little spring tabs back that hold the keyboard down, then you can carefully move it to the side (or disconnect the ribbon cable) and then access the screw holding in the dvd drive.
