Remove All Screws On Bottom Side Of Aspire... Flip Over Remove Keyboard.. Be Careful the Kayboard Is Attached to the board using a ribbon cable.. you need to lift the slider tab on the ribbon cable port to release the keyboard cable..... Once Keyboard Is Removed.. There are Screws Holding The TopSide Cover to the Bottom... usually 2 or 3... Remove them (label)..
Pull your WiFi cables through and unplug your Display cable,,, Unscrew the LCd Display From the Hinges and Set Aside...

THen You Can Pull The Top Case Bezel Away From The Motherboard and You Should Now Have Access To THe Fan and Heatsink.....
WHen Cleaning The Fan make sure to as well clean the Heatsink Fins... (use a toothbrush as it works the best...)

    Keyboards Are Held Down By Screws at the top of the keyboard... Which means you have to remove the plastic power strip as well.... If You've Done This And It Will Still Not Come Off, There Are Tabs On The Sides Of THe Keyboard .. all you do is pull up on the keyboard and it will release the keyboard..

    Look On The Underside Of Your Laptop... The Keyboard (if Attached From The Underside) Screws Will Be Marked With A little Keyboard Icon Next To Where THe Keyboard Screws Are...

    Usually They Are ... 1 in the middle and 1 near the cdrom area .... and 1 when you remove the WiFi cover .....
