    Hi!

    My Acer Aspire 1622 has a severe overheating problem.
    I read that I should clean the fan, and apply some cooling past to the
    CPU.

    Ok, but how on earth can I open the case and get there in the first
    place?

    I tried to remove all screws I could find but the case only opens a
    bit and won't move any further.

    Can anyone help me?

    Thank you very much!!

    Kind Regards,
    Andreas

    Hi!

    Thank you for answering. I have searched the site you linked to
    several times, but I haven't found anything helpfull. I only found a
    part list. :(

    Kind Regards,
    Andreas

    Go to this web site and download the appropriate manu
    "http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?website=AcerPanAm.com/us&siteid=7293&areaid=7&formid=3394&LINKTEXT=Drivers%20%26%20Downloads"

    Locate the Cooling fan/Thermal module and remove the cover. Note Acer
    is weird after you take out the screws, the cover doesn't just fall
    off, it requires a little coaxing. Try inserting a small screwdriver or
    knife and prying gently. Becareful, you don't want to break it.
    Typically there are a couple of little plastic tabs that hold it in and
    they snap in and out.

    My Acer 5000 recently developed a similar problem. Cleaning the fan and
    attempting to clean the Thermal Module with "canned air" didn't help.
    I'm looking for additional ideas. See my post "Acer 5000 overheating"
