This is actually simple to do. Take the battery out. Turn the laptop upside down. Look where the drive is located and then look for a single screw about 6 inches towards the mddle. You take this one screw out and the the drive will slide out. You push the new one in and put the screw back in and thats it.

The drive is about the size of a slice of toast. So if you look at where the drive is on the side imagine this "toast" and then look on the middle end of it. That one screw will be on that middle side but towards the front or back. This is one case where its harder to explain then it is to do. ;-] Now if nothing else you can take out one screw at a time near that middle edge and gently pull on the drive. If it doesn't come out then put it back in and try another. Once you have it out you will see how simple this is to do. There are no cable or connectors to attach so once it comes out as long as the new one is in the right place and the screw goes back in then you are good.

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.

I want to boot from DVD for Notebook Acer extensa 4230


Before Windows boots, determine which keyboard command you need to type to enter the "setup" or BIOS. Hit that key and it should get you into the BIOS. Once in the BIOS, go to the boot priority settings and set the DVD to boot first. Normally the harddrive is first.

Fix it yourself heres how: purchase a replacment dvd drive heres an example of one you could purchase that will fit your model http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ACER-EXTENSA-6602-DVR-K15RA-DVD-RW-LAPTOP-DRIVE-7865_W0QQitemZ330344511659QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_LaptopAccessories_LaptopDrives?hash=item4cea1138ab#ht_1313wt_732
Most dvd drives from any acer extensa will fit your model with the relevent bracket, which you will already have connected to your broken one.
ok now veiw the service manual here Service Manual and go to page 57 chapter 3 (67/142) here you will find the section called removing the optical drive module. its really simple just follow the instructions and pictures carefully.
Hope this Helps! Please Rate!

I want to install windows xp on my acer 4230


Hi shaikh_shaha

Can you get it to boot using any of the options it gives other than boot normally? If the blue screen is caused by hardware then installing xp will still present the problem. If the blue screen is an operating system crash then using the recovery disk or doing a repair install will solve the boot problem.

If you still rather install xp then you need to go into BIOS and set 1st boot device as CD. To go into BIOS you will need to press F10 or F2 (usually) as displayed on the splash screen when you power on

Does this help?
