Why does my cover not have a screw? Same laptop, ASUS X555LA.

Are you seeing just a plastic circle? That has to be pried off... the screw is underneath.

Hi! The battery have not be removed before this?

Ariel, the battery should be removed but this creates very unnecessary strain and stress on you. This is just an expansion bay, the actual ram is soldered on the motherboard, not serviceable by the end-user. Again, this is an expansion bay so what that means is if no RAM is in the to begin with, the laptop will be fine because there is still RAM directly on the motherboard. This is just so the end-user can add more RAM if they so choose.

What if it comes with 2GB RAM already in the bay? Is it okay to proceed as long as the PC is shutdown? Will I lose any information by removing the 2GB RAM stick? Thanks. (My X555LAB has 6GB RAM total but I wish to replace the 2GB with an 8GB, 12GB total, even though this PC has the i7 CPU which I heard can handle more than 12GB of RAM, something like 32GB but apparently this PC can handle only 12GB even though it has an i7 8th gen processor) Any advice?
