Disassemble and clean acer aspire 1800 wsci - PC Desktops

    Sorry, still finding my way around the site. I just need to be able to get full access to the inside of Acer to give it a good clean. So far only managed to get to parts of it as I cannot find all the screws. Also not sure how to remove screen. There are some screws beneath it which may need removing but cannot find a way in.
    I think also I need to upgrade the video card but cannot find that either. Any help appreciated, and apologies for earlier unclear post.

    Yeah, but the dust gets inside and it caused problems which I fixed, but still need to get access to fans, and also replace video card - if I can find it! Have seen several utube items on opening and cleaning laptops, but nothing on this model unfortunately. Thanks anyway for your help.

Way to slow down the z5610 acer fan? it runs loud after 2 years.


http://computershopper.com/desktops/reviews/acer-aspire-z5610

A) Needs to be opened up. Needs to be cleaned out inside.

Two years? Bet it looks 'scary dirty' inside. After you have cleaned out the inside, donate the 'Gunk' to local mice. They can use it for a condo. (I would charge them rent)

B) Processor may need old Thermal Paste replaced. Clean top of Processor, and bottom of finned Heatsink, and PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Primer:
Air is used to cool the inside of that All-In-One desktop computer. The Processor and graphics chipset, are the two hardware components that give off the most heat.

The finned Heatsink, and Processor Fan, are the two cooling components for the Processor. When they get clogged with 'Gunk' over the years, the cooling capacity drops -> tremendously.

The Processor fan sensor, senses that the Processor is too hot, and speeds the Processor fan up. Also BIOS speeds the computer case fan/s up.

Could also be that the bearings for the fan/s are bad. Replacement fan, or fans are needed.

ONE THING HOWEVER Karl, to work on this All-In-One you need to wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip connected to a good ground source.
This is just like working on a LAPTOP computer, NOT a desktop.

Average example,

(And of course unplugged from power)

Need guidance in cleaning, and replacing the Thermal Paste, just post back in a Comment. I will guide you.

My acer aspire M5100 getting into shudown mode


Check the temperature of the CPU in Bios. It is probably higher than the Safe temperature and it gets into shut down mode to protect itself.
Open it, detach the cooler from the CPU and clean it, detach the CPU from the socket, clean the paste from the top, put a new one, clean the socket and put everything back. It should work perfectly.
If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers
