How to open Acer Aspire 1672 WLMi

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
My laptop has a defective contact at the power connector ( DC input at the
back side of the laptop ).
I want to solder this connector on the motherboard.
( I'm sorry about my broken english ).
I took out the battery. I removed all screws. But I can not remove the
keyboard or anything else.

Under the copper-part near the fan is a screw. To remove this screw, I have
to remove the two fans.
But I'm afraid to open the 4 screws around the CPU to remove the cooling

Has somebody done this before ?
Can somebody send me a service guide ? ( there is one pdf-file : AS1670.pdf,
but not for the public )

Any useful help is appreciated.

Thank you...

Your english is just fine. You will have to take out the motherboard
in order to resolder that connector. If the heatsink will prevent the
motherboard from coming out, you have to remove the heatsink.

Repairing the connector almost always requires near total dismantling
and reassembling of a notebook.
