Insert a small flathead screwdriver under the keyboard bezel and carefully lift it up. Continue releasing plastic latches and removing the keyboard bezel with your fingers

Be careful, on some models the bezel might be connected to the motherboard as it shown on the picture above. If you accidentally pulled the cable, connect it back. It is not necessary to disconnect the keyboard bezel from the motherboard in order to remove and replace the keyboard, just put it aside so you can access the keyboard screws.


Remove three (or more) screws from the top of the keyboard. Carefully lift up the keyboard from the laI need to frequently clean - 2e7bf96.jpgr />

Way to slow down the z5610 acer fan? it runs loud after 2 years.


http://computershopper.com/desktops/reviews/acer-aspire-z5610

A) Needs to be opened up. Needs to be cleaned out inside.

Two years? Bet it looks 'scary dirty' inside. After you have cleaned out the inside, donate the 'Gunk' to local mice. They can use it for a condo. (I would charge them rent)

B) Processor may need old Thermal Paste replaced. Clean top of Processor, and bottom of finned Heatsink, and PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Primer:
Air is used to cool the inside of that All-In-One desktop computer. The Processor and graphics chipset, are the two hardware components that give off the most heat.

The finned Heatsink, and Processor Fan, are the two cooling components for the Processor. When they get clogged with 'Gunk' over the years, the cooling capacity drops -> tremendously.

The Processor fan sensor, senses that the Processor is too hot, and speeds the Processor fan up. Also BIOS speeds the computer case fan/s up.

Could also be that the bearings for the fan/s are bad. Replacement fan, or fans are needed.

ONE THING HOWEVER Karl, to work on this All-In-One you need to wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip connected to a good ground source.
This is just like working on a LAPTOP computer, NOT a desktop.

Average example,

(And of course unplugged from power)

Need guidance in cleaning, and replacing the Thermal Paste, just post back in a Comment. I will guide you.

Hi, my Acer Aspire Z5600 is overheating. How do I clean the dust out of it? I need to get inside the case


You can usually clean the dust out by picking up a duster can at any electronics store (Office Depot, Staples, Radio Shack, etc.), then just blow it into the vents on your laptop to blow it out. That usually gives it a pretty good cleaning. If you wish to disassemble it to get even better, i wouldn't go to much further than removing the back cover. You can find instructions (with pictures) for how to do this here. Hope that helps!

My computer sounds like it will 'blow up' frequently now. It sounds like a fan in my 'tower' is racing then slowing (Acer). Any idea? Thank you so much.


Sounds like your pc is overheating due to dirt, clogged up fans.
I clean mine every couple of months.
Make sure you ground yourself on the case of your pc before you touch anything inside your pc
Open your case and using a small brush clean the fans ( case fans/ graphics cards fans/ CPU fan)
Or you can use an air duster ( a can of compressed air )

I use both, and i use my vaccume cleaner when i use the brush, but dont do this if you are not happy about it.

If you google cleaning my pc there is lots of help

My acer aspire M5100 getting into shudown mode


Check the temperature of the CPU in Bios. It is probably higher than the Safe temperature and it gets into shut down mode to protect itself.
Open it, detach the cooler from the CPU and clean it, detach the CPU from the socket, clean the paste from the top, put a new one, clean the socket and put everything back. It should work perfectly.
If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers

Acer Aspire AST690 won't boot, just beeps. Nothing on the LCD. Fan is spinning but that's it.


Hi..

This is an Hardware Failures: Doesn't Boot Up.
First of all, most of the hardware failures that are going to be presented in this article require you to disassemble the laptop and work on its internal components. Because of this, you need the required components to take the laptop apart (such as screwdrivers, etc.) and space, lots of space. If you don't have a workbench, then working on that large table in the living room should do it.

You need to check the memory stick this is the first to diagnose the problem of beeping. Remove the memory stick clean the dust, and reinsert the memory stick, try to use the other memory slot.

Thanks for using fixya

No Display- display is not lit


It is probably the inverter board. In most laptops this is a separate board, very small and probably pretty inexpensive if you can find it. I dont service acer's but several other brands and that is a typical problem. If you can find one, and you can see how to open the lcd case, you can probably replace it yourself. In most cases it is pretty simple. I am new to using this site and unsure if its possible, but if you can contact me through the website, I could probably walk you through it.

How to open case on acer 3050


The method I would use is as follows:

Plugged into a power strip that is turned off but plugged into an outlet ( to keep a good ground to discharge ESD to ground), remove all covers and screws from the bottom (keeping all covers and screws in an order that you'll remember to reverse on reassembly), then if the case doesn't separate look for screws on top and sides (may be hidden by rubber plugs, so look closely). Either use a grounding strap to your wrist (especially in cooler drier climates), and or touching the metal on the case frequently to discharge the static electricity accumulated in your body, Then you may be able to get to the fan from the bottom or may have to continue disassembly to get to the fan on the other side (usually called component and solder sides) of the MoBo?
I couldn't/didn't find any pictorials on your particular laptop, and this is just generic information I go by and just My humble opinion on how to go about it, so please keep that in mind. BTW I have opened dozens of laptops over the years with successfully opening repairing and closing all that were worth the effort/cost.
Good luck, and I hope this post helps you.

Try this disconnect laptop from power, remove latop battery. Wait ten mins and connect everything back.

If the problem is that dvd is stuck inside use a pin or a staple , stick it into the emergency opening hole until it opens the door on dvd drive on laptop.
