Question about Acer Aspire 5600 Series 5630-6951 Laptop

1 Answer

Follow up castatroy, how does someone open up their laptop "in such a way not to void warranty"? - i have no experience at this, but common sense tells me that something is loose vs broken. i'm not terribly concerned about the 1 yr warranty, mainly because it's a hassel to package it and send it in on my dime and wait who knows how long... i would rather get someone who knows what their doing take care of the problem locally than go the Acer route. - the first place i took it to wouldn't even touch it because they can't get acer parts if they need them... what other options does an acer owner have? i live in the Vancouver / Lower Mainland Area.

How do I fix loose ac jack on acer extensa 5620z?


Hi,

If your laptop is under warranty or has a service contract, I would send it in for service according to the terms of sale. If your ac jack is loose you should check the cord in case the end is damaged and if your power cord isn't damaged you need to check the screws and connection and that's going to require removing the battery and the bottom cover of your laptop. It isn't difficult to replace most of the hardware in the Acer laptop, but you'll be exposing circuit boards and wires and there are all kinds of things that can be damaged if you're not careful, so I don't recommend taking apart your laptop unless you are certain you can replace the hardware without damaging other sensitive components. I really suggest that you have someone qualified in computer repair take a look at your laptop.
Also, once you open the back cover or take apart anything on your laptop you will void your warranty. most laptops have stickers and tabs placed on your laptop and once you remove the sticker it causes damage to the sticker and it lets the manufacturer know that you've attempted to repair it and that voids the warranty.

Once you check those see if the battery works, it may need replacing. Good luck!

I want clear bios password of IBM Thinkpad R52.


the password is stored in your CMOs which is powered by a very small battery on the motherboard. Theres only 3 ways to remove that password...

Send it to the manufacture to have them remove it as the following two step call for you voiding your warranty.

Open up the laptop by removing the 15-20 screws off the bottom of the unit, then find this small watch like battery and remove it, keep it removed for about 10 seconds then place it back in the unit.

If the battery cannot be found then it would be best to contact someone who is familiar with motherboard jumper settings or if neither of the previous answers I gave work for you then re-post asking for the specifics of your make and models motherboard jumper settings...

I recently sanitise my hd and installing ubuntu as my operating system. everything went on fine untill i receive the power on password during boot up which i don't remember enabling it. i'm unable to...


I had to fix this problem a couple years ago, it's common on Compaq's. The only way to fix it is to short out the CMOS battery on the motherboard. Doing this voids your warranty, so if you wish to follow that course I cannot tell you exactly where to go, but google's your friend. The other option you have is to call Compaq and open a ticket with tech support. If your laptop is still under warranty, you may even get a new computer.

My touchpad in my toshiba computer is not working. i purchased my computer two months ago. what should i do


You are still in warrenty, go to Toshiba website and get to customer services. Also - as its under 3 months you could take it to where you purchased it from and they should sort it, dont let them tell you to go to the manufacturer as in the legal sense they have a duty to you as you purchased from them and it's been under 3 months.
DONT open it up or let any technician open it up while its in warrenty, that will void the warrenty.

The audio output for the external speakers is loose--acer aspire 3680 laptop-


Hey there.

The only solution I am able to give us that because it is a Hard Ware problem, it cannot be fixed without getting hands on. It sounds like it just needs repositioning - because with laptops, after wear and tear and all the bumps and bruises things get loose - so..

I do not recommend you open up your laptop if you have no experience what so ever with doing so. You also void any warranty you have if you do. If you ain't worried about that, then it's a good time to get some self teaching experience. Get the manual for your Laptop, open it up and play around... but.. that's if you don't really care, and want to take some risks. Which most people don't.

I only thing I can suggest is to get a qualified technician - go to your local PC shop, and get them to open it up and reposition it.
But mainly, with something like that, it's not worth the time or money to repair. If you have lots of both, then that's all you can do to fix that.

Hopefully I have been of some assistance!

Plugged in not charging


Is the laptop still under warranty, if so get it repaired under warranty. If you try and fix it yourself you most likely would void your warranty. Power problem are quite common with laptops especially with the power socket on the laptop and the power plug which plugs into the power socket. These problems can be fixed, but I suggest you try to get yours fixed under warranty.

Adapter plug,for battery which is on the back is loose how do i fix it


Do you mean the socket on the laptop where the plug from the adaptor plugs into? If that is damaged it can be replaced by a repair shop and sometimes by a skilled user. The repair typically involves a fairly in depth disassembly of the laptop so the user would need to have fairly decent mechanical aptitude, a good assortment of small screwdrivers and experience handling electronics. If the laptop is still in warranty I would strongly recommend sending it to the manufacturer for repair. It may not be a warranty repair; however, if anyone else takes it apart you will void your warranty on anything else that may go wrong in the future.
