Ati guide plus not updating
Oh, that and a little problem with the screen from someone stepping on my laptop.
Other than that it's been a trooper, I've never been disappointed by its performance.
It ended up being replaced with a WD Scorpio Blue, which is also still working today.
Ive been using Acers for the past 6 years and all have been rock solid devices.
I replaced one keyboard () because my WASD letters rubbed off but that's it. Returned mine because of faulty touch pad, wifi died in my mothers one, my friends have them and the bezels around the screens are clicky (clips are not good enough). Remove (loosen) four screws securing the hard drive and memory cover. Slide the HDD 1 to the left until it’s disconnected from the motherboard and remove it. Disconnect two antenna cables from the wireless card. Remove four screws securing hard drives (two screws per hard drive). If you damage the connector, the keyboard will not work. It’s still possible to use this clip to lock the connector. Pull Wi-Fi antenna cables though the opening in the cover. Disconnect the speaker cable (green arrow) from the motherboard. In the next post I will explain how to remove the screen. UPDATE: There are only two fans listed in the service manual for HP Pavilion dv7 series. 488885-001 for notebooks equipped with AMD processor. Lift up the keyboard from the base and access the cable connector underneath. The brown clip must stay attached to the connector base. As you see, the left pin on the brown clip is missing. Remove six screws securing display hinges (three screws per hinge). Separate the display assembly from the notebook base. The green circled screw is hidden in the CD/DVD drive bay. You can use same trick with the guitar pick shown in the step 6. As you see, the cooling fan is dusty and has to be cleaned.
