How to open Acer Aspire 1672 WLMi

Discussion in 'Laptops' started by Reinhard Skarbal, Feb 10, 2007.

  1. 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.
