How open Acer L310 case

My computer is locking up. I suspect overheating as I don't think I hear the fan running. Exactly how do I open up the computer case? Anybody know where I can buy a replacement fan(s). I understand Acer doesn't sell parts.

On newer computers... especially desktops, the cooling fans are using a new brand of a.b.e.c. bearings.the bearings make it run faster and super silent! OH!, and one question before you VOID YOUR WARRANTY...... do you sit the case on the floor or back to the wall?

I have an acer aspire ax5900. The video card fan vibrates loudly for the first 10 minutes after start up. I am told I need a new video card. Is this correct and where is the best place to get one?


Your Acer Aspire, like any other desktop computer system, contains fans inside the case to help vent the heat generated by the internal components.
These fans generally operate quietly and reliably, working in the background to prevent your computer from overheating.
A fan that sounds excessively loud could indicate a problem such as overheating or loose internal components, or it could simply be a normally loud fan.
The key to differentiating between the two involves looking for additional clues from your computer.
Normal Operation
Due to computer configuration and build quality, the fans in some desktops sound louder than others.
Depending on what other brands of computers you've owned or have had experience with, the fan in the Acer may sound louder, when it's actually functioning perfectly.
The fan will run to keep the inside of the computer from overheating, so periodic runs are normal. If the fan runs for long periods or very often, you may have a deeper problem.
Fan Damage and Overheating
A fan can sound loud due to damage, such as broken blades or to a build-up of dirt that impedes normal operation.
This dirt, as well as normal wear and usage, can wear away the lubricant coating on the fan's internal shaft, causing the blades to make excessive noise as they turn. In many cases, a loud fan indicates that the computer is overheating, causing the fan to run more often than usual to try and cool the system.
Depending on the types of components and upgrades within your Acer computer, your current fan may be too small and weak to handle the heat output, and require upgrading to a larger, more powerful fan.
Troubleshooting
Take note of when the fan turns on and how long it runs to determine any distinct patterns, whether if it occurs only during certain processes or programs.
Your computer's CPU generates a large amount of heat while in operation, so programs that require large amounts of CPU usage may trigger the fan more often.
Watch for additional signs of overheating, such as sudden shutdowns or computer crashes. Check inside the case for signs of other components touching the fan and causing vibration noise.
Solution
Do not overtax the CPU by opening numerous processor-intensive programs at once.
Check that all screws, cards and wires are securely fastened and away from the fan.
Keep your computer clean inside and out, to prevent the build-up of dirt on the fan blades or air vents and minimize the threat of overheating.
Apply a drop of oil to your fan's shaft to give it proper lubrication and smooth, quiet rotation of the blades.

Acer Aspire AST180-ED380M was working very slow and locking up; did a system restore; then had to reinstall operating system (computer error message); now it seems to time out and reboot automatically,...


Sounds like the CPU is overheating. The usual cause is the CPU heatsink and fan need cleaning. Take the side cover off and have a look see. Also, it's possible that the heatsink may have come loose and isn't making good contact with the CPU. In either case you may need some CPU paste. Also check any case fans to make sure they are working.
After checking those things, suspect the power supply, memory, and possibly the hard drive.

Just want to now what is the biggest duo 2 cpu can you put in the acer aspire l310 desktop


This is the standard equipment for your model.
Problem is, your system is already maxed out for heat.
If you add a faster CPU, you will most likely suffer from overheating, but yes you can add up to a 3 gig+ duo with no problem fitting it in the socket. Expect your power supply fan to run constantly though.

Processor: 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo E6300
Memory: 1GB DDR2
Storage: 320GB hard drive
Optical Drives: Double-layer DVD±RW
Monitor: None
Graphics: Integrated Intel GMA 3000
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium

Hi

I'm not sure, please open the computer case and see if there is a free pci slot.

Note that opening the computer might void warranty.

Also, you would do fine with a USB Wifi adapter. cost around the same if not cheaper.

Thanks and good luck,
let me know if you need anything else.

System will not boot


Any output on the screen at all? If no, probably the processor.

Do you hear fans running in the back, where the power plug comes out? If no, probably the power supply.

It's really hard to tell on thing like this. It could be the power supply, motherboard, processor, or any combination of those things.
