Question about Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook

Reversing the Acer Aspire One screen

I am trying to take off the screen from an Acer Aspire One laptop and reverse it so it is facing in the opposite direction. In short, I will have the laptop keyboard facing me and the screen facing in the opposite direction. That way I can type and someone else can see the results. Is this possible? If so, what are the steps I need to follow to make it happen? I am a novice so the steps have to be clear and easy to follow.

Hi there.
No you can't do that as you will wreck the laptop, to save any damage to the laptop you can use a external monitor and switch your graphics to that monitor only, it will be cheaper and more convenient doing it that way.
If you want to spend a bit of money there are laptops out there with swivel lids.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

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.

Acer Aspire 5602WLMI water in keyboard


Here is a great deal on a replacement keyboard:
http://www.sunvalleyus.com/AcerKeyboard/Acer-5601AWLMi-5602WLMi.html
To replace it, first of all, remove the power connector and the battery before you do anything on that laptop.

remove the 3 screws in the middle cover. remove that middle cover by putting a screwdriver in one of those holes which are covering the displaybrackets. pull it up slowly. same thing goes for the opposite side.

remove the 2 screws which are holding the keyboard and the cable to the mainboard.
Reassembly is the reverse of dissasembly, be careful with the ribbon cable as its fragile, and there is a little plastic piece that either pulls up or pulls out that releases the cable.
One of the easiest repairs to a laptop there is.

Unfortunately it sounds like bad memory. Depending on your memory configuration you can try swithing out memory sticks. Check with your manufacture about memory configuation requirment before trying this. If you're unsure how to do this it's best to take it to someone who does know how.
