    There are screws right under the screen - perhaps those are it.

    Does that mean I'll have to remove the screen? Is that hard/scary?

Hi,
Undo the three screws on the screen hinges.
The plastic plate with the power button and battery light can then be removed by opening the screen flat.

Remove the 2 grub screws and unclip.

The keyboard comes out but other than removing dust it is not servicable.

I just done it following a small liquid spill and some keys not working!!

Hope this is clear.

if you find them unscrew the keyboard.

I have Acer Aspire 1640Z notebook and I tryed to update the bios but it was not succesfully updated and power off . when I power on its give me 1 long and 2 short beeps and blank screen . How do i reset...


The only thing you can do that I am aware of, is attempt to remove the battery and unplug the system. Then remove your CMOS battery which is usually located under the keyboard.

If you do not feel comfortable disassembeling your PC then dont do it!

But, if removing the CMOS BAttery does not work, you might be out of luck. Improper installation or updating of your BIOS in many cases will render your PC inoperable, I hate to say that, but they warn you of this before the installation starts!

Let me know what you find or if you need more assistance!

Acer aspire 1640z with win vista sound not working


Hi bertyboo, Acer does not have sound drivers for Vista.
However your Aspire 1640Z notebook should be able to use the RealTek driver included in the link below. The download button is located at the right side of the page. Scroll down the site & look under, Operating System Requirements: (Vista is included).
