    My G53SX-XN1 makes continuous noise compare to my previous HP Pavillion DV6-2106EA. i have tried to put my hand next to the vent but didn't really feel that air is coming through. so why is this sound for? is it hard drive making sound or continuous fan running. has anyone got this machine with continuous sound? I have checked the windows task manager and found lots of process running. i have uploaded the image in three photos. someone please advice me as this sound is giving me headache.

    That doesn't really help, continuous sound? Describe the sound? Is it a buzzing sound or clicking sound or any other? Perhaps a video would help better?

    Does anyone have a schematic on this model. I just got mine and want to put in a SSD and a new Blu-Ray. The only thing I have found is on YouTube and it's a complete disassemble, where he just removes everything at once. It would really help if I knew which screw I was after. Why would they supplu the extra HDD screws if they didn't want you to get one in there?

    On the ASUS DVD and also preinstalled comes a PDF called eManual. There it is described in details how to install/remove HDDs. However I warn you it's pretty tough to get to. There are give or take 25 screws On my last laptop there were 2 screws and you were there!

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Even when the fan is seemingly off it still makes a little noise. I've come to believe that it's actually never off, and that it is still blowing very subtly.
    Still it is very quiet. Especially in games it is nowhere near as loud as my previous lappy.

    Hey everyone, just got my G53SX-NH71 a week back and have had no complaints about the performance. Just wanted to ask 2 question regarding this NB.
    1. Are the speakers in the laptop changeable cause ASUS hasn't put a good sounding speaker system in their g53 range??

    2. When the computer comes out from sleep or hibernation, i see a green screen for a split second and then the log-in screen comes on. Its not an annoying issue but I would like to get it resolved. I just updated to the nvidia 295.73 drivers. Any suggestions? (SOLVED!! Just install 295.73 drivers and its resolved. I hope it dosent occur again)

    Hope someone can help me. Haffun all and enjoy ur G53's!

    On this particular laptop, we affectionately call it a "Chinese puzzle box" as the first time I ever got into one, it wasn't plainly obvious how to remove the bottom panel.

    In order to remove the bottom panel to get to your HDD bays, you will have to gently remove the keyboard, and then the palm rest/touchpad before you can get to the screws to remove the bottom of the laptop. I know the video you found shows a total dis-assembly and that is almost what you will need to do. Just watch the first part until they remove the bottom cover, that should be all you will need to do.

    Just be careful with keyboard and touchpad ribbon removal. Also, the little slide latch at the bottom right, after keyboard removal does take a little bit of pressure after the screw is out to get that lock to slide over.

    Let us know how it goes if you decide to go through with it. It really isn't bad if you have the know how and the right tools.

    Unfortunately, I believe you are stuck with the speakers that came built into your laptop. You could connect a pair of external speakers to it if that helps.

    Have you tried going to Control Panel > Sound > select your output devices > Enhancements tab and checked the boxes next to Equalizer and Loudness Equalization? It does help to improve the volume level a bit.
