How to Upgrade the Webcam in Your Asus Eee

Many Asus Eee PC models have a tiny video camera built into the display panel; it allows you to shoot video and take pictures directly from the laptop. Upgrading the webcam requires that you completely dismantle the computer's LCD panel, remove the screen and remove the old webcam device. Many replacement webcams can be purchased from online computer-part stores. While this isn't a difficult procedure, performing this task yourself may void your manufacturer's warranty.

Skill level:Moderate

Things you need

Flathead screwdriverPhillips-head screwdriverAntistatic wrist strap

Instructions

1 Power down your laptop. Unplug the power cable and all external devices. Close the display panel and place the laptop facedown on a flat surface with the front edge facing you. Remove the battery pack from its compartment along the top edge of the laptop's bottom side.

2 Place the laptop faceup and open the display panel as far as possible. Use a small flathead screwdriver to pry the rubber screw covers from the display panel's front bezel. (The front bezel is the main plastic piece on the front side of the LCD screen.) Remove the Phillips-head screws that are revealed by the screw covers. Carefully pry the front bezel from the display panel with your fingertips.

3 Locate the webcam device inside the top or bottom edge of the display panel. Disconnect the webcam's cables from the laptop. Remove any Phillips-head screws and adhesive tape that secures the webcam to the display panel. Remove the webcam from the laptop.

4 Place the new webcam into the empty slot. Replace its retaining Phillips-head screws and tape. Reconnect the camera's cables to its connectors on the laptop. Replace the front bezel, its retaining screws and the rubber screw covers.

5 Close the display panel and flip the laptop over. Replace the battery pack. Place the laptop faceup and reconnect all cables and devices to the computer.

Tips and warnings

Wear an antistatic wrist strap while working on any laptop to prevent electrical damage.
