The top and bottom covers are also held together with plactic catches.
After you remove the battery, CD/DVD drive and hard drive etc.
start near an openning and gently pull apart the top and bottom cases, you should hear a click as a catch releases, then continue to work around the edge fron this point.

The machine (Aspire 5050) starts and works normally, but there is a sound (noise) coming out. It seems that it is a problem in the fans. It begins when the machine turn on and continues until shut down.


you cud remove the fan, and replace it or u cud try dusting it first without opening it up...and if that doesnt work dust it after opening it up and try fixing it...use replacement as the last option... and most fans make noises! trust me...

A few questions up ahead please:
a. Is the power button lighting up when you press it or power on your laptop?

b. Is the battery fully charged?

**If you answered YES to all the above...

2. next, connect this through an external usb casing to another system and backup all files on the hard drive.

3. if you don't have an acer recovery cd(s) for your laptop, try get someone who has and can help you burn the software for your model and make.

4. next, format the hard drive before you reinstall it back into your laptop.

5. power on your laptop and continously press F8 to enter the bios setup.

6. Select bootup sequence and select boot from cd drive.

7. first reinstall a lower version windows os by inserting a bootable system software.

8. after installation, keep the cd rom drive open and shut down your laptop.

9. insert the acer system recovery cd into the cd rom drive and close shut.

10. Restart your laptop then, Follow the instructions and prompts.
