Re: Dismantling notebook.

Hi bud to replace the fan you will ned to remove all the screws underneath including the three holding your keyboard, the turn over your laptop with a very small glasses screw driver remove the keyboard which is held by three clips running along the bottom inside edge of keyboard. then you will find a further two screws holding the casing. then unplug the two conectors you can see holding the casing one runs from the mouse pad the other is instrument panel now lift off casing being mindful of the pcmcia card holder then unplug fan and remove the two holding screws either side. When putting back together the keyboard connector on the motherboard pulls down and then you lift it slightly about 30 degrees which is so you can slide the connector in place then push it back into positionthe rest should be easy all my best ric

My screen is black even can't do anything and can't go in to safe mode or anything to restore it

You may try to plug in an external monitor to the rear aux monitor connector on the laptop. Be sure to depress the key that switches the monitor to external while is powering up. If you get an image/picture on the external monitor it is probably the connector that has come loose from the mother board. WARNING!!! You have to take out alot of screws and sub components to get at it if you can attempt to lift the keyboard up and remove it first. You may be able to access the connector from there. If you attempt any major dismantling, video tape yourself doing it. That tape may prove invaluable when it comes to putting it back together.

Your heatsink is probably blocked.

Many older laptops run HOT and will shut down very quickly if there is no ventilation.

You can check this by shining a flashlight into the fan vent and checking it's visible when looking in the heatsink vent (or vice versa)

You can dismantle the laptop to get the dust out.


Or use a can of compressed air to blow through the heatsink grilles and dislodge the dust, followed by a vacuum cleaner nozzle over the fan intake to **** as much dust as possible back out of the machine.

It may take several blow/**** cycles to clear it entirely - don't be surprised to see enormous quantities of dust erupting from the fan vent when you first use the compressed air.

if you take the second option, don't dismantle the case and it's best to do this with the machine running.

Plastic vaccum cleaner nozzles carry a hefty static charge, but as long as it remains outside the case the components will remain protected and the area where the air runs through the case is entirely shielded from the rest of the machine.

If the vent isn't freely flowing air when you've tried a couple of cycles (check with a flashlight for airflow) then the machine will have to be dismantled and the dust removed manually (I've seen accumulated dust turn into 1/4 inch thick felt blocks in some laptops and have had to write off many laptops used by smokers as they had become a toxic health hazard.).

Dismantling a laptop is not a job for a novice as it is easy to damage electronic components with stray static electricity charges and plastic case components while pulling things apart It's also possible to wreck cases by overtightening or using wrong length screws when reassembling.

Dismantling acer aspire 1300 laptop to repait power supply inlet removed all screws from underneath but appears to be still connected somewhere at the back inside centrally ?

Have you removed the panels from the bottom of the computer? There could be a screw or two accessible only from within the space occupied by the memory or hard drive or modem. I have also seen machines that have a screw under the keyboard.
If it appears to be fastened at the back, remove the studs that hold the SVGA port to the case.

Lcd screen cracked

You can get a new screen from
You can get dismantling info from them.

Basically you need to remove screws from the lid and bezel to reveal the LCD screen mounting screws. You also need to remove part of the plastic case next to the bottom of the screen, this will reveal the video cable conector etc.
If the top plastic case is in one piece, you need to remove this and possibly the keyboard to reveal the video cable connector.

Dismantle instructions

you will find it hard to obtain dismantle instuctions for any laptop, dismantling laptops is mostly trial and error and takes carefull planning.
the best way to dismantle a laptop is draw a diagram as you take it appart, this is beacuse the amount of screws so you have to take notes pertaining to where they came from aswell as other hardware like mini-pci cards etc.

good luck with your project
