Question about Acer Aspire 3610 Notebook

1 Answer

Daismantle of 3610

I tried to take apart my laptop to get to the motherboard. The keyboard is off as are all visible screws. The top and bottom panels and the motherboard all seem to be connected to the same place just left of centre as you are looking at the screen around half way. I think it might be the connection of the wire going to the screen from the motherboard. Does anyone have any ideas of where I should go next?

    Hey,

    The LCD is off but the wires from the LCD is still connected to the motherboard. The motherboard seems to be connected at the same place to the top and bottom panels, can't see any visible screws left. Any ideas?

Computer was locked


Resetting the CMOS password on an Acer Aspire laptop is much more difficult than resetting the password on a desktop.
Disassembly steps vary from model to model, but on most models, you'll have to take apart the computer to access the CMOS battery.
Don't take apart the notebook if you don't have experience disassembling PCs.
After turning off the computer and disconnecting the AC adapter, take out the battery (different from the CMOS battery).
All visible screws must then be removed from the bottom of the notebook.
Remove all components stored to their separate compartments on the base of the notebook.
Turn over and open the PC. Lift up the switch cover and remove the screws securing the keyboard to the PC, if any are visible.
Remove the keyboard.
Remove the screws securing the monitor to the hinges, and then set the monitor aside.
Disconnect all visible cables connected to the motherboard; and then remove the screws from the top cover.
Remove the top cover to reveal the motherboard. Locate and then remove the CMOS battery. Leave it out of the notebook for 24 hours; then reinstall it and reassemble the Acer Aspire.
Other Options
If removing the CMOS battery fails to clear the password, or if you dont feel comfortable with the idea of opening your computer, you might be able to gain access to the computer using a backdoor password.
These special passwords were implemented to allow technicians to access locked computers. Not all models recognize backdoor passwords.
Most Acer Aspires use the Phoenix BIOS, and backdoor passwords for this BIOS include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix and PHOENIX.
All of these passwords are case-sensitive.

Taking Apart the Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000


There are two hidden screws under the two stickers on the back of the keyboard. Just feel around for slight indentations and stick your screwdriver bit down into it and unscrew. Keep in mind though, this may void your warranty.

I need to replace the power supply plug in my hp ze2000 laptop, i have all of the screws out of the bottom of the computer but can not get the case to open. How do I do so?


First of all remove all your components ie. RAM, hard drive, battery, CD/DVD drive etc. Sometimes there are screws located in the area where these components are located that secures the top and bottom halves of the case.
I suggest that as you remove the screws from the bottom of the case you take a note where the came from as some of the screws are different lengths.
There may be s strip panel between the top of the keyboard and the LCD screen, remove this first, it will be clipped in place and held with screws from the bottom of the laptop.
Next the keyboard should removed and keyboard cable.
Look closely for screws hidden behind plastic stick on covers, you need to use a sharp thin blade to lift off these covers to reveal the screws behind the covers.
The top and bottom halves of the case is usually held in place with plactic clips, start at an opening and carefully pull apart until a clip releases and the work along that edge to release more clips. Continue along each edge until you separate the case.
The LCD screen is usually secured with screws on the back edge of the laptop and possible with screws near the edge of the motherboard. Take care to disconnect the video connector.
The motherboard needs to be removed from the bottom half of the case so you can access the power connector.
Take careful note where you remove each screw as you need to put them back in reverse order.

Best of luck, have fun.

I need to replace the keyboard on an Acer Aspire 3680 series laptop


Hi there.
Remove the laptop battery and the AC power supply, open the lid as far back as you can take it.
Get a small flat headed screwdriver, now, you have to take off the keyboard bezel, this is the strip of plastic above the keyboard with the power button on it, the best way to remove it is to start by the on/off button by gently prying the bezel up from the lid hinge, once you have one side out gently pull it up using your fingers, it will unclip and lift away.
Next you have to remove 2 screws from the top of the keyboard, these should be visible to you, once the screws are out carefully lift the keyboard up, you will see a ribbon cable that is connected to the motherboard, gently pull the tab up on the connector that the ribbon cable sits in and it should release it and you can now remove the keyboard and replace it.
To re-assemble just follow my direction in reverse.
Please post back with the results and for any additional advice if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Opening a Gateway Solo 2150 laptop


I found the answer on another wed site. I tried it on my Gateway Solo 1500 and it works! The extra screws are hidden on top. You carefully remove the small face plate around the power button. I used a very small screw drive to lift it off.

Opening Gateway Solo 1400
by Aelanna - 2/3/05 11:04 AM In reply to: Gateway SOLO 1400 by hunjibunji
I'm also an A+ certified tech, but I've done notebook service for a lot of years. I just finished opening up a Gateway Solo 1400 and it was NOT easy! There are no screws holding the keyboard on the bottom of the machine. You can get the case open about 95% and there will be one area stuck, in the back near where the screen cable goes into the unit. There is a hidden screw on the top of the case next to the hinge. To get to it, you have to remove the two screws that hold the plastic hinge cover and pry off the cover. I only managed to find it after removing the keyboard, the display, and the panel with the LEDs and power button. (The screws holding the keyboard are on the top of the machine, underneath the cover with the power button on it.)

Flash bios crash


The only 2 way to fix it is to replace the motherboard or:

Take the computer apart by removing all visible screws. And slowly and carefully removing all parts. Start with screws under keyboard on bottom of chassis. After you remove the keyboard you will see more of a hint to get the laptop apart. Go to tomshardware.com and search the site for how-to on disassembling a laptop. After you get it open you should look for your bios chip , the picture is attached here. If it is socketed you can get the numbers 
and do an
 internet search or call acer and get one from the manufacturer.

Dismantle of Aspire 3610


A good first step is to remove the keyboard, as there are usually a few hidden screws underneath it that will go unnoticed most of the time. Remove all the panels from the bottom, along with any other screws, and then you may need a small flathead screwdriver to go around the edges and pry the top half off the bottom half, as there are usually some sort of clips to hold it together.

Are you sure you have all the screws out, there is a small plastic disc on the bottom of the laptop underneath the card slot, this needs to be removed to access a screw (obviously take out plastic blank in slot first).

And there is not much reason to dismantle LCD either.

What is it you are trying to do.
