Acer Travelmate 529TXV needs serial port connector repair

I have an Acer Travelmate 529TXV that has an intermittent serial port connector. I would like to take it apart and fix the connector (probably needs pins resoldered).
I have removed everything that seems to come out, and all of the screws that are obvious. There is still something in the middle back that is holding the keyboard and the back together - I do not see any more screws. Is there some screws hiding under keycaps on the keyboard or is there some other hidden screws, or is it just double-back sticky taped together at this point?

Thanks, JB

    Sorry, I do not find anything at that site relating to my problem..

    I got it figured out now, you have to remove the switch panel above the keyboard by sliding the hinge cover to the right, then slide the switch panel to the right and remove the left hinge cover by sliding it to the left. This allows the keyboard to slide forward and up and away which exposes 4 new screws that were the problem.

SOURCE: Damaged keycap - aspire 3690

If you look very carefully - you should see 'something like' an H shaped piece of plastic that holds the key in place - this controls the position.
You need to prize the legs that meet with the key away from the centre (carefully) using 2off small jewel screw drivers (maybe 2 off paper clips)

CMOS battery is bad


Hi there,
Replacing CMOS battery in Acer TravelMate 529TXV step by step: 1. remove all power sources (unplug cable, remove battery) 2. remove keyboard (carefully!!) by unsnapping it at the snaps upper and lower edge 3. in central part you see a metal cover mounted with 2 screws - unscrew those and slide the cower slightly downward (in the direction of the touchpad) to remove it. 4. You can now see a small battery, that is now very easy to remove. Take it to a nearest battery shop, buy one with EXACTLY THE SAME PARAMETERS! and reverse the whole process.

Dear Sir/Madam, I have a notebook TM8572T-484G50 which I put into EZ Port IV port replicator to use it as a desktop. However, when I connected the network cable to the port replicator, it doesn't...


It appears that the ethernet connection from the laptop to the replicator is bad.
This will likely need to be serviced by a qualified Acer repair facility.
Your other option (likely cheaper too) is to simply get a USB ethernet connector to use when it's docked.

When I plug a wireless cable into a USB port, the computer tells me that there are High speed USB ports available but does not inform where to find them.


Right-Click on My Computer, Properties, Device Manager, then Click on Universal Serial Bus Controllers, u will see the USB port available on your computer there. Also, at the same time you are doing this, try checking all the USB ports on your computer...most times, the HIGH-Speed USB Ports (USB 2.0) are always seperated from the other USB ports...so try the USB port seperated from others.
In your own case, Acer TravelMate 2303LCi has just 3 USB slots, a PC card slot, modem and network slot. No floppy drive, no TV-out, no IR, no Wi-Fi. So check-out USB Ports, the USB port infront of the Laptop beside the Audio Port and and the Speaker, on the extreme-right is your USB 2.0 High-Speed Port.
