I'm trying to open the display to change the lcd on my aspire 5050, but I can't get the cover off around the top under the built in webcam, and don't want to break it. Does anyone have a service manual or can guide me on what I need to do to get the cover off around this area?
I need to know how to get the memory cover off. Even after removing the four screws it acts like one corner near the indent by the RAM icon is snapped into it or glued down. The cover is huge, over half the bottom of the case.
I'm also interested in upgrading the 1.73 Ghz Celeron M 530 if it's possible. Eventually I plan to upgrade the DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive to a DVD burner, so the manual will be handy for that too.
I really need the detailed (exploded views, part numbers, screw counts, repair/breakdown information ect...) soon, I was given (for fixing a customers old Dell) a 3680-2682 for nada, but it has a shattered LCD screen. I've got a replacement on the way but I need the service manual for obvious reasons...
I want to remove some of the outer casing on my AR series Vaio to replace it with a new part, is their anywhere that i can download a service manual for an AR series vaio that shows me how to take one apart so that i can replace the plastic fascia ?
Ive had my aspire 7720 for about a month now, and just recently i has started to overheat. i cant get 5 mins into a video without it overheating and turning off. I bought a cooling pad but it really hasnt made much difference.
I purchased this model because of the right balance of power, memory, storage space, and battery life. The great video card was a factor as well. The reviews I've heard about Acer's commercial technology were just great so I had no worries about taking a chance with a company that I'd never owned a computer from before. Turned out to be one of the best computers I've ever owned!

I been looking to upgrade my CPU and would like to know what is the fastest (MHz and cores) CPU that my 7720 can use? I am looking at the q9900 or extreme quad core socket p CPU to up grade to. Yes I get my jollies off of stressing the maxium capabilities out of a laptop. I have a Acer Aspire 7720-6556 or somthing close with intel core2 1.66 with 17in LCD and 2 500 western digital scorpion blue harddrives using MS Vista for OS with 2 gig of ram BIOS 1.45. Whew! I've tried windows 7 poor support for intel video and ram and no ir drivers. Oh back to the point, I am looking for to find out if this laptop will support quad core tech and what is the fastest CPU that BIOS ver. 1.45 will allow,
I purchased my Acer in Dec of 2007. It's worked great except it's overheating problem (got a fan, no more problem). Last month it started intermitently not booting properly, and not coming out of sleep. I "fixed" the sleep problem by telling Vista not to put it to sleep any more. I typically shut it down when I'm finished with it so sleep wasn't an issue for me.
To ellaborate on the booting problem. If I attempt to boot it, the display turns on, and power button turns green, but neither the fan, nor Drive turn on, nor do any of the USB ports get power (I know this because I have an illuminated keyboard, which doesn't illuminate when this problem is occuring). I've waited for as long as an hour and it will never boot. If I hold down the power button for 4 seconds, it turns off. And if I boot it again it boots up properly. Doesn't matter how many times I reboot it after it always comes back up. I've never tested how much time passes before I can't boot it. I also tryed putting it in hibernation manually, that worked twice, the last time it wouldn't wake and had to be rebooted. I've done a check disk on it but all seems fine.
