The cooling fan in my Acer Aspire laptop (bought 1 year ago) stopped working. Can it be replaced or is it part of the motherboard?


As stated it can be replaced. Might be the pits in finding the replacement fan, though.

Let's take a look at an Acer Aspire 5520 series laptop, as an example,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-acer-aspire-5520-laptop/

Scroll down until you come to the third photo.

Getting to the Cooling Fan in the Acer Aspire 5050 series Notebook PC's, requires a lot more disassembly, however.

The Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook PC, in the category heading, is part of the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's.

This is the Service Manual for the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go to the second Aspire heading.
The one that begins with Aspire 1200.

Now go down to the 5th line, and scroll across to > 5050.
Left-click on 5050.

This is a PDF file.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

[ Although I would recommend upgrading to Adobe Reader 9, if it isn't on your computer ]

After you click on the file > 5050, you won't see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.

Most of the time the first page pops up within 10 seconds, and it requires additional time to fully download the file.

Suggest you let the file download all the way, before looking through it.
Watch the Download Progress bar.

You can save this file to your computer.
This way you can burn a copy to CD for safekeeping, and easy access anytime you wish.

You can also delete from your computer then, to save Harddrive space.
If you do not know how, and wish to, simply post in a Comment.

For further questions on this please post in a Comment.

Acer aspire 5050 can't turn it on


If you dont see any green lights and you dont hear any boot up sounds ( hd, fans, etc) try to take out battery and just plug in the AC adapter to a known good power outlet. Make sure your power plug is good too. If you hear boot-up sounds, see green lights but no display then toggle on the "fn" key and or try on an external monitor.

Acer Aspire 5050 drivers


Windows does not come with pc specific drivers, you need to download them from the Acer web site, but never heard of a Aspire 5050, so choose your model on the page link

Reboot to its factory settings


do you mean reload the operating system ?
if yes and if you didn't delete the recovery partition in your harddrive, you can press alt+f10 during boot, it will guide you to the reload operating system.

Problem in linux installation


Hi, I also have an acer aspire 5050 (AMD 64bit CPU).
It came preinstalled with Vista Home Basic which I decided to get rid of. I downloaded a copy of SUSE 10 Enterprise Desktop (5 CD iso's images from ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/x86_64/10.0/iso/ )and burn't them to CD, and installed it straigt off CD.
It installed fine with Gnome (havent tried KDE). There are certain problems that you need to tweak before it all works ok.

The 5 in 1 card reader wont work at all, but I have heard that it might in future kernel upgrades. 

The sound doesn't work untill you edit a file (follow the guide at http://nosrednaekim.wordpress.com/2007/05/28/linux-on-the-acer-aspire-5050/) after doing this and rebooting it works great.

The graphics was another issue, I have an ATI Radeon Xpress 1100. I couldn't get 3d accelleration to work for ages, but have managed to now. First off you have to download the ati driver for the "Mobility Radion X300" for linux (x86_64 for 64bit CPU) from http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html. When downloaded just run it in a terminal ("sh ./ati*%$%*%$*%"). Then after rebooting (the tricky part for non linux geeks!) open a terminal, "su" to root and run "init 3" then log in as root and run "aticonfig --initial -f" when complete run "aticonfig --app=maya --fsaa=on --fs=4 --ovt=opengl" then when complete run "aticonfig --effective=now" then "init 5". Now log on and you can enable 3d in display properties (in control center). The 3d desktop is so much better than Vista could ever be. I have only just got my graphics card working and I havent messed about with all the settings yet so you can probably get it working alot faster with some tweaking.

If you're interested in porgramming or compiling programs for your OS you will need to "build your Kernel" this takes a bit of time but a good guide is at http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_suse i skipped page one and some other bits)

Hope this helps, and you enjoy linux.
