In this guide I will show how to disassemble an Acer Aspire V5-572G-6679.
The guide has two parts. In the first part I explain how to access important components located under the bottom cover.
In the second part I explain how to disassemble the display and remove the screen.
Before you start, make sure it is turned off.
Remove all shown screws from the bottom.
Start separating the bottom cover from the rest of the laptop.
You can use a guitar pick or any other piece of plastic to split the case.
Remove the bottom cover.
Under the cover you can access most important internal components but before you touch anything don’t forget to disconnect the battery.
Unplug the battery connector from the motherboard.
Do not pull by the wires. Unplug the connector by the edges.
There are no screws securing the hard drive. It’s just fitted between case brackets.
Lift up the hard drive from the case.
Disconnect the hard drive SATA cable.
Remove the hard drive and replace it with a new one if you are doing an upgrade.
The DC jack also not secured to the case. It’s fitted between plastic brackets.
Disconnect the DC jack cable from the motherboard.
Again, do not pull by the wires.
Lift up and remove the DC jack harness.
Acer Aspire V5 has built-in RAM (integrated into the motherboard) and one removable RAM module.
The CMOS battery located close to the memory slot.
Both cooling fans can be easily accessed.
It’s not necessary to remove fans for cleaning.
Simply blow off dust with an air compressor or canned air.
When you cleaning the fan using compressed air, block the fan with your finger so it doesn’t spin.
Very hight RPM can damage the bearing.
Now let’s take apart the display.
There are no screws securing the screen bezel.
In order to separate it from the display cover, you’ll have to insert the guitar pick under the bezel and pull it away from the screen a little bit.
Now you should be able to insert fingers under the bezel.
Wiggle the bezel to unlock hidden latches.
Continue separating the bezel on the top of the display assembly.
Now you can move to the lower part of the display.
Remove the bezel completely.
Remove four screws securing the LCD screen assembly.
Carefully separate the screen from the display cover and place it the front side down on the keyboard.
Now you can access the display cable connector.
Remove clear tape securing the connector.
Unplug the display cable from the screen.
Remove the screen and replace with a new one if necessary.
This Acer Aspire Aspire-V5-572G-6679 had the following screen installed: N156BGE-EB1.
I easily found a new replacement when I searched by the model number.
