There are tools that help you pry into a laptop. It looks like a pencil a flat edge on it. Usually you just need to pop it out. But there is no problems with being cautious. There are also manuals to look at also.

How do i take my Acer Aspire 5532? i want to replace the processor, but the gut's are like a poorly designed obstacle course. :(


Usually the first thing on a laptop is the keyboard, then pry the plate above the keyboard (between lcd and keyboard), this will give access to the lcd hinges and connection. Remember to remove all screws, covers, drives, battery, memory and ethernet card BEFORE taking anything apart. Unplug the lcd, pull the wireless antenna wire through from the bottom of the laptop then remove the lcd. make sure there are no screws through the case from the top. then you simply pry the top off the bottom, be sure to start from the back as the front of the aspires are usually hinge style clips-meaning when you put it together tilt the top toward you, slide the front clips in place locking the front down then press down on th edges from the front to back to snap it together). After the top is off remove screws from the heatsink and fan, disconnect the fan and remove heatsink. There you go, install opposit of removal.

CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO INSTALL EXTRA MEMORY IN MY ACER ASPIRE 5315 LAPTOP HOW DO I REMOVE THE KEYBOARD ETC


The memory is under the laptop. Turn the back, remove the battery, you will see alot of small screws, loose them all one after the other. But if you want to loose the memory, you do not need to remove all the screws, look very well you a cover that has about one or two screws, there you will find the memory. Also you will see a screw under the DVD/CD Drive, you need to loose the screw first before you can remove the drive.

As for the keyboard, after loosing the screws from under, turn the laptop back up, open the flip, try removing the front cover, before you can reach the keyboard. After opening the cover, you need to remove the keyboard flex carefully.

After loosing the screws, you might find it a bit difficult to open the laptop cover, you will need force to open it, but becareful so the nothing will get spoilt or broken.

It's very simple, just make sure all screws are loosed before you try opening.

I wish you the best.

I am unable to remove the plate once undone screws to be able to add extra ram ( a further 1GB)


Acer bottom plastics can be a bear at times, but they will come off, they just need persuading. The screws don't come off the plastics because of a small nylon screw retainer, so have to make sure you have accounted for all the screws and that they are all backed off. Then look for the recessed area which is a pry area, use a flat hard plastic, wood tool and pry one side off and then the other.

I wish to add more RAM to my laptop but cannot get cover openbehi


The ram is under a base cover and the cover is usually indicated by small rectangles imprinted in the plastic. I will send you the link to the service manual that will show everything you need to know about your laptop.
The ram, wireless card, heat-sink and processor are all under the largest of the panels. The smaller panel is where the hard drive lives and then there is the battery.

Acer won't boot up


Hi,
when any computer posts/boots up.
it goes through a sequence of initialising things before booting.
i,ve been repairing computers for around 12-15 years.
1st i,d try removing the ram ( memory ) usually underneath the laptop, behind a screw cover. Or ocassionally under the keyboard.
if 2 sticks of ram are installed, remove the battery. and 1 stick of Ram. put battery on and try to boot. if no joy with that try the other stick of ram. and replace battery-Re-boot.
If this works you have 1 stick of faulty ram or faulty ram slot on motherboard. Failing this. I suspect that the CPU has overheated, and therefore a replacement Processor should solve the problem.

Thankyou for using fixya.

Mike @ compurepair.

Acer 5315-2713 add memory card


OK, In general for the 5315 series, the memory replacement should be roughly the same.
You seem to have an idea what you're doing, so here's a little specifics:

Here's what you see once you get the giant "thermal door" cover off. To remove the cover, first, remove the four screws. Now carefully slip a thin tool like a table knife under the edge of the cover where the indent is and work around towards the front and back of the laptop.
DON'T pry along the side towards the side of the laptop or you'll break those longer tabs. That's the edge which goes in first when you replace the cover.


The RAM pops out easily by spreading the clips on either side.

Acer 5720Z removing rear cover to access RAM


sure..be real careful with removing that..you may need to GENTLY pry that up, under the slot, that is on one side...make sure all screws are removed, or loosened..this may mean that your memory was NOT installed correctly in the first place(causing the door to jam)..

Or, you may have the magnetic memory(just kidding)

Installing RAM


Are you are sure you are removing the correct cover for the RAM? Most of the laptops I have seen have only one screw on the cover. There are usually tabs on the oppsite end of the cover from the screw, and sometimes tabs also on the sides I have seen some covers that you have to pop loose after removing the screw, on these covers you would think it is going to break.
