Question about Acer Computers & Internet
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.
