There are 6 clips on the inside of the case that hold the front cover. You will need to remove both the left side (easy side with two hand screws) and the right side (two philips screws).

Use a flat head screwdriver to pop the clips on each side (3 on each side) and the cover will come off.

Good luck.

How to remove front panel to repair the front usb ports on an Acer Aspire E380 -?


The front USB connectors are usually either molded into the front case or held in via a clip or screws. Unfortunately, when they go out due to the tab within the USB port breaking, they are not easily replaced as each manufacturer creates their own proprietary connector...not the USB part but the hardware to hold the USB in place. So you will find the hardest part of this project finding the right connector or "jerry-rigging" the new one to fit.

Another alternative is to remove everything from the old case...the mainboard, all the drives and whatever else can be moved, and put it into a new case. If your current power supply is good and of a standard size, etc...you can get a used case for around $10.00 and put all the other things from the old one in it. Fortunately, this series of Acer seems to be pretty much generic so everything should fit....just make sure the "new" case has good front USB ports.

Will an IDE DVD Burner work on my Acer Aspire E380 desktop. The hard drive is a SATA but the burner looks like an IDE and has belt cables. I need to replace my DVD burner and not sure what type of burner...


Yes, all you need is a IDE (Pata) to IDE (Sata) converter.

If you're replacing it, just make sure you get one with the correct interface, judging by what you sat SATA.

Aspire ase380-ud421a cd/dvd drive stopped working


Try going to system setup by hitting Delete when you see the acer/aspire logo when you restart, then open your drive there. If it doesn't work, it is likely that your drive needs to be replaced. You could also try reseating (pulling out and putting back in) the cables inside the computer that's connected to your drive. All else fails, replace the drive.

The sound of my computers audio is strange. The computer is Acer Aspire E380 with Realtek High Definition sound card. Can anybody help me?


Try this, double click on the realtek HD audio icon on the system tray (orange speaker), click the effects tab, check if there's an active sound effect, change the effect to none, this should return the audio back to normal. Otherwise, either there's a problem with the speaker or on-board sound card.
