How to clean cooling fan acer extensa 4630


Why do you want to clean the fan ? What is the problem with your laptop ?
First read this and follow the instructions
http://acer.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/418/
Second, try acer support, the chat facility is good, but you will your laptop serial number (22 digits usually)
Finally if you are determined to clean the actual fan thoroughly you will need disassemble your laptop. Instructions for carrying out this difficult process can be found in the service manual which you can find here:
http://www.manualslib.com/products/Acer-Extensa-4630-2178214.html
This video
http://www.laptopinventory.com/LaptopInventory.php/Acer/Extensa/4630/Fan
shows the general idea (the guy demonstrating is very practiced, and the video is speeded up in places, and it takes him 15 minutes).
You can try blowing compressed air (from a can) through the fan by applying it to the vents, but unless you can prevent the fan from turning, this can generate damaging voltages (fan acts as a generator). You can get away with this if you stop the fan from turning, or least only allow it to turn slowly.

After turning on my my acer 2300 its boots up fine but the fan only works for a few seconds then stops and then does not work at all


Normally if the fan is bad and failing the laptop will run hot (overheat) and shut down. If yours is not doing that, then you are fine. Sometimes the fans will turn on and off as needed.

My acer travelmate 4200 laptop keeps turning of


This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

Acer laptop disc drive not opening w/ btn or paperclip


Turn the computer off.

Gently push the paperclip in until you feel some resistance.

Then, with a more-firm pressure, push it another 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch -- the mechanism should "unlock" the tray, and it should open, just very slightly.

Then, the tray can be grabbed, and gently pulled open, to its full range of motion.

I have a travelmate 240 which as now burnt out two cpu's . the fan stops running after 6 seconds does this mean its the fan at fault or the motherboard thanks ****


the problem is probably with the motherboard. it may be passing too much power to the fan thus causing the fan motor to burn out. the cpu burn out is usually a result of cpu not cooling properly, either because the fan is not working or the white gel between the heat sink and cpu is finished.

Ticking problem on power up


The ticking noise is most likely the hard disk and the ticking noise indicates that the hard disk is faulty.
A normal functioning hard disk makes a spinning sound.
I suggest you get your money back or get a new hard disk and install Windows to get the laptop operating again.

Acer travelmate 4000 laptop Big problem


I guess I can assume that you have it plugged into the ac power, so you know its not a power problem. We also know its not a problem with the power switch since the light turns on. So that leaves, motherboard, cpu, and ram possible problems. Ram would unlikely cause such a hault. Even with no ram, I believe the computer would make horrible beeping noises. So if its a problem with the motherboard or cpu, its pretty much trash, unless you want to waste the money on ebay or some place for another cpu to try to swap.
