Acer :: How To Replace Screen?

Oct 20, 2009

I've been trying to follow various vague guides on how to replace Acer screens. The closest guide on this forum is for the 6930 but the layout is quite different once you open them up. I have so far removed the speaker cover and detached the screen from the main laptop. I have also un-popped the screen bezel but am now stuck. The proplem is that as far as I can see, I need to get the whole bezel off in order to accesss the LCD fittings but I can't because it's catching on the hinges (and the small circuit board for the AC in socket) which protude from the screen. How do you remove the bezel? It looks like it should slide up away from the hinges but mine is getting caught everytime. What have I missed?

Acer :: What Cost To Replace A Broken Screen?

Feb 27, 2009

I recently dropped my acer 5315 and now the screen is broken. There are a lot of black blotches and a little color and some lines when I start up and it stays that way.

Would anybody know approximately what it would cost to replace the screen or know where I could purchase one.

How big of a job would it be to replace as I have never worked on a laptop.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6000 Screen Replace

Aug 7, 2009

I recently aquired damage to my laptop screen, an HP dv6000 with a 14.1 inch (wide) screen. I am looking to purchase a new one, however the 'specs' or details of the screen (ex. Video connector info, backlight type) are way out of my realm of understanding.

Before I purchase a new screen, I would like to make sure it is completely compatible with my laptop. How am I able to determine this?

Also, what is the esthetic/quality difference between Glossy and Matte type screens?

HP/Compaq :: Replace LCD Screen Or Entire Display Panel

May 19, 2009

i just found this forum and it seems like you guys could help me answer this question. i have a dv2000 laptop i bought about 2 years ago and the screen has started to mess up. essentially it has two problems.

1. there is always a vertical line about a pixel thick that stays a yellow color. no matter what is on the screen, the line is always yellow. if i bend the display panel a bit it disappears but comes back as soon as i let go.

2. when i open and close the laptop to adjust the screen angle, the screen starts flickering with these white lines. i have to keep messing around with the screen (moving it back and forth) for it to come back to normal. im not sure if a cable is loose or maybe broken.

im assuming that i need to replace the entire display panel but im not sure if i can get away with just buying the lcd screen and replacing it. i can probably get rid of the yellow line on the screen but i think the flickering is caused by something else. could it be a loose cable that i just need to fix?

Acer :: Replace 3680 DC/USB Board

Dec 31, 2008

My daughters Acer 3680 just stopped working. I purchased a new AC adapter and it still doesnt turn on. The battery is new. Im guessing its the power jack that needs replaced. To avoid soldering Ill purchase the whole DC/USB board


I need step by step instructions on how to dissasemble the notebook. I got it mostly apart but i just can seem to separate the thing in half to access the DC/USB board. Any online resources, videos, manuals that would show this process of dissasembly?

I found a post on here with the identical problem. The post pointed to a Utube video that showed the process...that video has since been removed....heres the old post

Acer :: Upgrade/Replace CPU In 8930

Oct 6, 2009

Replacing/upgrading the CPU on an 8930 is not so difficult. With care, a small cross head and flat head screwdriver and some thermal grease the following procedure can be carried out in less than 20 minutes. The description here is for information only; if you choose to try it out bear in mind that things can still go wrong and you do it at your own risk.
The linked photos show my upgrade of a T6400 to a P8600.

A list of CPU benchmarks at NOTEBOOKCHECK shows the relative merits of these two (and other) CPUs. Whilst the P8600 is not cutting edge technology it is significantly better (in my mind) than the T6400. In addition (BIOS permitting) the P8600 also supports VT, hacking the BIOS is my next step; I have not covered it here as I have not done it yet and anyway others have already covered potential approaches Add to that the fact that I got a good deal on eBay (under 70 GBP) and you can see why I chose the P8600 above possible replacements. Most of my use is development and design so I do not need to be at the expensive cutting edge, but superior performance and hopefully virtualization are key for me. One interesting difference in the choice of CPU is that the FSB should increase from 800 to 1066MHz.So on to the CPU swap out...

First shutdown the notebook and disconnect the mains power adapter. Turn the notebook over so the base faces upwards with the screen hinge nearest.

Unlatch and remove the battery (1). Unscrew the 7 screws holding the access panel in place. If you are careful the screws can remain in their locations as the panel is removed to avoid needing to record where they each came from.

Carefully release the panel by lifting the edges gently releasing the internal clips, start at the recess (3) and work round both sides to the side opposite the recess. The side opposite the recess has lugs not clips and so this edge should be slid out when the others sides are all unclipped (like opening a door with the recess at (3) representing the handle and the opposite side the hinges).

Once released the panel comes away easily and completely, most force is required releasing the first few clips but this need not be excessive and can be helped with a well placed thumb nail.

From now on static discharge is an issue, make sure you are careful to avoid damaging your laptop. Tweezers may be useful as the screws are small, avoid dropping them as they could find there way further inside and become difficult to rescue............

Acer :: 5920 Video Card Replace

Nov 18, 2008

I am hoping i am able to replace my video card in my 5920g.

I believe it is MXM2 and as such can be replaced.

The current card is the nvidia 8600m-gs and I'm very much afraid it isn't going to last very long, i bought this machine to play games (COD4, Bioshockand such), since the 8600 is included in the bad cards list you can see my dilemma.

My questions are,
Can this card be replaced?

If so what can i replace it with other than the 8 series nvidias?

How difficult would it be to replace? I'm not afraid to open it up and i've done a bit of work on other systems.

Jan 21, 2008

how to open up a Acer Aspire 5050. My right mouse button is constantly being pushed down, i've disabled it through the drivers but i would like the laptop to be fully functional. I was wondering why this could be happening.

I'm looking for a guide so i can investigate! Do you think it would be easy to repair? Or would i just need to replace the board underneath the buttons? The left click and the scroll buttons did work properly before this happened. Now only the left click works.

Acer :: 3680SMART HDD Warning, Need To Replace Drive- What About Service Partition

Apr 18, 2010

I recently received an Acer 3680. Upon bootup, it gives a SMART error for the HDD, warning of imminent failure and a need to back up all files. According to the previous owner, it has been doing this for months. I want to repace the HDD, but have some concerns about the service / recovery partition. I recently made some back-up CD's and reinstalled Windows Vista Home Basic. This was done to wipe out the previous owner's data, plus see if the backup dics really would work. The CD's I made are the only discs I have for it.

If I buy a new hard disk drive (larger and a different model than the current one), will I be able to create a service partition on it, with whatever information is supposed to be on the service partition?

Will the backup CD's I made from the eRecovery software be able to install the OS onto a new hard drive, or will they only work with that exact model drive?

Basically, I am preferring a new HDD that will be partitioned and have the data just like the current one, but larger, with no SMART errors. Is this possible?

the current hdd:
Samsung Spinpoint M6 251JI 8mb cache 540RPM SATA 1.5Gb/s

what concerns me is the sata plug... are they all the same?
more recent lappy hdds are SATA 3Gb/s 16 mb cache or something on that line. so im wondering if a hdd like that would work with my laptop.

Dell :: How Bad Does A Battery Have To Be Before Will Replace It

May 6, 2009

And how do they determine it? My word? Tests?

My M1530 will hit one year old at the end of the month. My battery life is just sort of crappy. As a test I charged it up to 100% then unplugged it. I dimmed the screen to about 50%, turned off Wifi, then just let it sit idle. Nothing running. The battery lasted about 90 minutes.

Clearly not great, but does that sort of performance warrant a replacement?
