SOURCE: Replacing RAM chip in a acer aspire 3000

I found the user manual at Page 63 of the acer user manual listed these steps for changing the memory: "1 Turn off the computer, unplug the AC adaptor (if connected) and remove the battery pack. Then turn the computer over to access its base. 2 Remove the screws from the memory cover; then lift up and remove the memory cover. 3 (a) Insert the memory module diagonally into the slot, then (b) gently press it down until it clicks into place. 4 Replace the memory cover and secure it with the screw. 5 Reinstall the battery pack, and reconnect the AC adaptor. 6 Turn on the computer. The computer automatically detects and reconfigures the total memory"

SOURCE: remove cd/dvd drive acer travelmate 2310

The standard drive in the 2310 seems to be a Matshita U3-840D, which is a basically a piece of rubbish. I did what paella recommended, and the drive pulled out without much trouble, but has a small plastic flap attachment at the back which is evidentally a panel for the screw which holds the drive in place (this was split when I pulled out the drive... which makes me wonder whether a replacement will be all that easy to push in without opening up the entire unit and removing, then replacing, the existing screw. I'd recommend opening the laptop first if possible, and removing the screw at the back of the drive which keeps it in place before pulling it out.

SOURCE: Acer travelmate 4650, after bios flashing, no display.thanks.

HI there
Sounds like the bios flash has failed, the only thing you can do now is try to flash again, make sure you have the right bios update for that model machine, suggest you get a USB floppy drive so you are able to re-flash the bios, if it still doesn't work then the machine is rendered useless.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

SOURCE: acer travelmate 2410 hinges broke on cover how to

Very carefully, 1-push the screen right back holing the hinges where tey should be, 2-you have to unclip the black panel (over the power button) using an old credit card so yo dont damage the plastic, as this panel loops over the hinges & can only be removed with the screen right back, BUT remember to be carefull as the cables run through the blak covers & you don't want to snag them!
I've done this before so don't be afraid to pull hard start at the edges & make sure when aclip releases not to carry on pulling (use your thumb on the base of the comuter whilst pulling, dont just rip em off as you'll crack the panel quite easy.
but first I'd see if you can get replacements they're only aluminium angle plates with 2 screws holding them to the base.
Hope tis helps!

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.

Where is the cmos battery situated on my acer travelmate 202T . Thanks

acer laptops differ with every model but it will be in one of two places. first place to look is under all the removable covers on the bottom of the laptop. if you can't see it after doing this then you will have to take the keyboard off and it will be under there. the screws for removing the keyboard are marked on the under side of the laptop. hope you get it replaced and every thing will be ok. please let me knoe how you get on.

Removing the back cover

I think you have to remove the screen assembly first - I will check and let you know.

Removing middle cover

If you are positive that there are not any screws holding it down then look for tiny plastic tabs holding in place. I usually use a very small flat head screw driver and find an area to safely insert the tip between the cover and the rest of the laptop and very gently and slowly separate the two. If you come across an area that just won't move then look for something that is securing it.
PATIENCE is the biggest key. I learned this the hard way on my own laptop, lol!

Good luck, n hope this helps!
