Hello.

Disconnect the power adapter.

Remove battery

Remove Monitor screws in hinges.

Remove Strip with Power-On button - feels sticky

Remove keyboard screws

Remove keyboard - may need gentle side to side movement

I don't have the diagram but i can give you direction.
1. remove the power cover first (where power button is), it might have 3 screw that hold, if there is 3 screw on the power cover, remove it first.
2. after your removed the power cover, you can see the screw that hold keyboard. remove that screw and you can remove the keyboard.

To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

How can i boot my acer 1640 laptop from usb drive (external dvd), the bios have no option. Thanks


Do you still have the problem?
In BIOS setup go to the Boot section and move the cursor down to the harddisk line.
If you started your PC with the USB device connected, the Harddisk line should have a "+" to the left.
Press enter on the Harddisk line and move to the USB.. line.
Press F6 to move it upward.
Do the same to move the Harddisk line to the top before the CD/DVD line.
Save the settings and rebootReboot, and it should boot on the USB device.

Burning


It maybe because the drive is a +R burner and you are putting a -R disc in. That is the usual case. The media type can be found on the inner circle of the disc.

Hope that helps.
