Wher is wifi card located on Acer aspire 1355LC


Several models of the Acer Aspire One netbook are on the market, but each version is based on the same chassis. The method of replacing the Aspire One's wireless card is the same for each model. Though replacing the wireless card with a newer card is a simple process, opening the Aspire One and removing the original hardware may void the manufacturer or store warranty.

Place the Acer Aspire One face-down on a flat surface so that the bottom is facing upwards. Remove the six screws with a Philips screwdriver; three are located in the battery compartment, and the other three are located under the speakers. Place the screws in a cup to avoid losing them. Turn the Aspire One over so that the bottom is facing down. Open the lid so that the keyboard is exposed. Identify three small black tabs above the "F2," "F8" and "Print Screen" buttons. Depress each tab with a straight screwdriver. Lift the top of the keyboard with a straight screwdriver after the tabs have been depressed. Pull the keyboard forward towards the screen, then lift it free of the chassis. Disconnect the keyboard's ribbon connection by gently prying the plastic clip away from the ribbon with your fingernail or a straight screwdriver. Set the keyboard aside. Remove the six screws holding the top half of the Acer's chassis to the motherboard. Gently pry the chassis upwards; a series of plastic clips holds it to the bottom half of the chassis. Press each clip with a straight screwdriver until the top half of the chassis lifts free. Set it aside and place the screws in a cup to avoid losing them. Remove the metal plate covering the wireless card; it is located in the bottom right side of the motherboard and held in place with two screws. Set the plate aside and place the screws in a cup. Disconnect the wireless card by pulling the two wires holding it in place upwards. Slide the wireless card forward out of the slot it's in and set it aside. Slide the new wireless card into the slot, then plug the two wires into the new card, reversing the actions you used to remove the old card. Place the metal plate over the new wireless card and screw it in place. Place the chassis over the motherboard, carefully align it with the bottom half of the chassis, and then firmly press down onto it until the tabs snap back into place. Replace the screws into the six screw slots. Place the keyboard over the chassis. Lift the ribbon connector and slide the ribbon into the slot. Press the ribbon connector into the 'locked' position, then slide the keyboard into place and press firmly to snap the tabs into place. Turn the Acer Aspire One upside down and replace the screws that were removed from the bottom of the netbook.

I have a compaq presario CQ80 lap top. I am getting an error that the HDD needs to be replaced. It has a 160 gb hdd, and I would like to replace it with something bigger. I cant seem to find any ac


the only thing you need to know is if it is a sata or ide hard drive (if you look at the end of the drive if it has a lot of little holes it's an ide) then shop for whatever size drive you want i.e 250GB 2.5" hard drive. Because it's for a laptop it will have to be a 2.5" hard drive.

    Memory


    To get at some parts takes some doing, but the AVERATEC 4200 AV4265-EH1 is user upgradable. The 80GB hard drive and one of the 256MB memory slots sit under a large bottom panel held in place by seven small screws. Removing two additional screws frees the hard drive. To reach the second RAM slot, you have to loosen one additional screw (labeled "D" in the manual but not on the notebook) inside the bottom compartment, pop out keyboard's four top latches, and lift it off. The RAM slot, the only exposed component beneath the keyboard, is easy to find. Another 256mb run both will surfice.
