The method I would use is as follows:

Plugged into a power strip that is turned off but plugged into an outlet ( to keep a good ground to discharge ESD to ground), remove all covers and screws from the bottom (keeping all covers and screws in an order that you'll remember to reverse on reassembly), then if the case doesn't separate look for screws on top and sides (may be hidden by rubber plugs, so look closely). Either use a grounding strap to your wrist (especially in cooler drier climates), and or touching the metal on the case frequently to discharge the static electricity accumulated in your body, Then you may be able to get to the fan from the bottom or may have to continue disassembly to get to the fan on the other side (usually called component and solder sides) of the MoBo?
I couldn't/didn't find any pictorials on your particular laptop, and this is just generic information I go by and just My humble opinion on how to go about it, so please keep that in mind. BTW I have opened dozens of laptops over the years with successfully opening repairing and closing all that were worth the effort/cost.
Good luck, and I hope this post helps you.

I have an Acer Aspire 3050 and it only goes to a black screen that says "Operating system not found" Help Need this working again...


OK, best case scenario is your hard drive is corrupt, worst case, hard drive is dead.

What to do - you could download the hirens boot cd and see if you can rejuvenate the hard drive firstly by going into mini windows and check if you can see the C: drive in windows explorer, if you can thern running chkdsk c: /f might sort it for you.

There are other utilities in the hirens disc that could help but that's where I'd start.

If you're not confident doing this then you might need to take it to your local pc engineer.

Driver de Memoria PCI Aspire 3050


If you installed windows 7 on the aspire 3050 ..and you do not have the vga driver for the video and the card reader driver ..here is the place to download and run them into computer ..
The drivers are for vista but will work in windows 7 too ..
(in the worse case , just download the drivers..and before installing them ..just click right and select properties and select under compatibility to run in compatibility with windows vista and apply )
I think they will work ..cause there are no known incompatibilities between these drivers and windows 7

Wont load


sounds like there is a break in a circuit board or some warp to the case that separates part of the power tracks to the main board. Acers are a cheap laptop ( meaning made to a price) and often do not have a rigid support for their parts to prevent warp or twisting. Like a car without a chassis.. bound to twist and wear tyres. Time to move on and buy a better brand

Noisy fan on acer 3050


All of them, as the MoBo is where the cooling fan is drawing air over the Prossesor. Experience is a plus.
