I have an acer travelmate 517TE. I want to remove the cover plate of the monitor to check the inverter and fuse. I have removed the two top screws but the plate is still on firmly. Does anyone know where the other screws are or clamps?

There may be other screws hidden behind plastic concealing covers.
The front bezel can have retaining clips that clip that lock onto the lid and may also held in place with double sided tape.
Use a thin flat blade (careful not to scratch the LCD screen) and slip it between the bezel and the LCD screen and gently prize it away from the screen. Start at the bottom of the screen near the hinges and work along each edge.
The inverter will be located on the bottom edge of the screen between the hinges.

How reset bios password form a acer travelmate 240


You will need to turn your travelmate upside down and remove the ***** from the hard drive panel or Ram cover...try both.You will see a small battery(cmos battery). If you can see where it is plugged in and can reach it,unplug it for about 10 seconds and plug back in then put your covers back.That should reset your bios so you dont need a password.You can go back in your bios at a later time and set a new password if you wish :)

How do i remove the cover on my acer 2420 laptop to replace the cmos battery?Some one please help


You have to probably remove all the screws under the computer. remove the hdd memory and etc. The next part will be to check near the keyboard if there is something to pull out, underneath that there will be more screws to pull out and you will the cmos battery.

if your computer is the aaccer travelmate 2420 you can also check this website http://www.wiquestions.com/questions/les-instructions-de-demontage-pour-un-acer-travelmate-2420/

The hard disk on my TravelMate just died and I need to change it. Do you know someone who has one, because I think a new one is out of the question.


You need something like this

You won't find a new one cheaper so if it's too much just go to the local computer repair shop, they might have one, recovered from a dead laptop.

Acer 507DX Travelmate, need to remove cover/case to install new HD, apart from the dozen or so screws in the bottom, what else holds it?


The hard drive is usually located under a recess plate on the base of the laptop.
If you locate the battery on the underside, the hard drive cover is next to it and is held on with just two screws.
Hope this helps.

Good morning from Guinea BissaI want to know if


yes ...all 510 series have ...including the 517te ...if you do not find it in device manager ..go to bios and set it to optimal factory defaults ..and it will appear without driver (if it isnt installed yet) in device manager or will prompt you that it found new hardware ..
here you will find the driver for it ..
choose the operation system and download...there are 3 available wifi models for this laptop..probably the driver will be one of them ..

How do i get access to the RAM slots on an Acer Travelmate 420???


The memory is located under a small cover plate on the bottom of the unit. Remove the battery, and then take out the two screws of this cover plate, you will find your Ram located under this plate. Here is the user manual for your model notebook:

Acer Travel mate 517TE C MOS low battery warning msf at Power up


If you clear the cmos you are just loading the defalt bios settings but not solving the problem.
In this case you dont have to clear the cmos but instead replace the cmos battery.

White screen


This could be caused for a number of reasons. First thing to determine is if the computer is bad or just the screen. Hook up a external monitor to the laptop and turn it on and use the FN key to turn on the external monitor port. If the computer is running fine with the external monitor then you have a bad LCD or LCD inverter. which is replacable but expensive.. you would want to look at getting a new laptop or using it with the external monitor.
