I want to clean my cooling fan on acer aspire 5050 but i can't open the cover despite removing all the screws. Please show me on video how to open it, TQ.


Hi mjikunan...
Clean your exaust fan for your laptop the easy way.
Go to Staples,Home Depot,Office depot and purchase a can of compressed air...or a friend that has an air compressor.
Insert the nozzle into the exaust vent of laptop...blow the air for about 3 seconds...DO NOT
OVER-REV the fan...then go to the intake of the air duct and blow the air again for 3 seconds...do this procedure 4 times and the dust should be out of your laptop.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I am trying to access the fan on my son's acer aspire 5050, to replace the fan and heat sinc, can you help me with this?


Remove the base cover.
Disconnect the heatsink fan connector from the main board.
Remove the screw securing the heatsink fan module in place (most probably there will be only one screw).
Now carefully lift up the heatsink fan module.

The cooling fan in my Acer Aspire laptop (bought 1 year ago) stopped working. Can it be replaced or is it part of the motherboard?


As stated it can be replaced. Might be the pits in finding the replacement fan, though.

Let's take a look at an Acer Aspire 5520 series laptop, as an example,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/take-apart-acer-aspire-5520-laptop/

Scroll down until you come to the third photo.

Getting to the Cooling Fan in the Acer Aspire 5050 series Notebook PC's, requires a lot more disassembly, however.

The Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook PC, in the category heading, is part of the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's.

This is the Service Manual for the Acer Aspire 5050 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go to the second Aspire heading.
The one that begins with Aspire 1200.

Now go down to the 5th line, and scroll across to > 5050.
Left-click on 5050.

This is a PDF file.
The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

[ Although I would recommend upgrading to Adobe Reader 9, if it isn't on your computer ]

After you click on the file > 5050, you won't see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.

Most of the time the first page pops up within 10 seconds, and it requires additional time to fully download the file.

Suggest you let the file download all the way, before looking through it.
Watch the Download Progress bar.

You can save this file to your computer.
This way you can burn a copy to CD for safekeeping, and easy access anytime you wish.

You can also delete from your computer then, to save Harddrive space.
If you do not know how, and wish to, simply post in a Comment.

For further questions on this please post in a Comment.

Laptop shuts down


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give your computer a "blow-job", to remove the dust, because the dust is acting as a layer of insulation, trapping heat inside your computer.

Reload the battery.
Connect the AC power.
Start your laptop, and check that the fans inside the notebook computer are pushing air out of the exhaust-vents. If not, the fan(s) have failed, and you need a professional computer technician to disassemble your computer, and fix the fans.

I have only had my aspire 5536 for a month and the fan is much more noisy than it was when new help


I have also had this problem. What I did was remove the bottom plate and then the screws from around the fan case. This may sound like it takes the fan plate off but it is held on by two things embedded into the case. You then out the bottom plate back on and it should sound fine . Just make sure you don't void the warranty although if it is still in warranty I would advise sending it back.

After you remove the battery, CD/DVD drive and hard drive etc.
start near an openning and gently pull apart the top and bottom cases, you should hear a click as a catch releases, then continue to work around the edge fron this point.
