The cooling fan in my Acer Aspire laptop (bought 1 year ago) stopped working. Can it be replaced or is it part of the motherboard?


As stated it can be replaced. Might be the pits in finding the replacement fan, though.

Let's take a look at an Acer Aspire 5520 series laptop, as an example,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-acer-aspire-5520-laptop/

Scroll down until you come to the third photo.

Getting to the Cooling Fan in the Acer Aspire 5050 series Notebook PC's, requires a lot more disassembly, however.

The Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook PC, in the category heading, is part of the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's.

This is the Service Manual for the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go to the second Aspire heading.
The one that begins with Aspire 1200.

Now go down to the 5th line, and scroll across to > 5050.
Left-click on 5050.

This is a PDF file.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

[ Although I would recommend upgrading to Adobe Reader 9, if it isn't on your computer ]

After you click on the file > 5050, you won't see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.

Most of the time the first page pops up within 10 seconds, and it requires additional time to fully download the file.

Suggest you let the file download all the way, before looking through it.
Watch the Download Progress bar.

You can save this file to your computer.
This way you can burn a copy to CD for safekeeping, and easy access anytime you wish.

You can also delete from your computer then, to save Harddrive space.
If you do not know how, and wish to, simply post in a Comment.

For further questions on this please post in a Comment.

Regards,

Acer Aspire One, Screen turns strip-y grey/white


hi there, my sisters dell laptop does the same thing. My best guess is that a hard knock on the graphics card and knocked a few pins out of it. This is something that a average person can not do. My suggestion is to bring it to a computer shop and tell them that you think it's the monitor connections.

Black screen / HD light steady and the fan keeps running


Ok, check your RAM, reseat or clean it with soft eraser, only its edge connector both side. Do this when unit is off and no other power source is connected to it even its battery.

Hope this help.

Can someone tell me how to reboot my Acer Aspire 5050?


"Can someone tell me how to reboot my Acer Aspire..."
"I use Windows Vista".

Right! Thankyou for providing more information than most users do here, but in this case, Windows Vista will look and run the same on any computer. =-D

Click on the start-menu button (it's the Windows logo at the bottom-left of your screen)

Then aim for an icon that is red, with a white circle and a line in it. Click that, and then you'll be prompted for restart, shutdown, take over the world etc.

Done! =-]
