The guide has two parts. In the first part I explain how to access important components located under the bottom cover.

Before you start, make sure it is turned off.

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.

Very hight RPM can damage the bearing.

    Hi, great detailed instructions. Would you have anything specific to removing the dummay bezel for the optical bay for an Acer Aspire V5-561G-6894

      @ Will,
      Not sure what you are asking about. Does it have an optical bay at all?

    Great job on the detailed instructions. Hi i’ve got an acer aspire v5-572pg and would like to know what ram it would take. Also do i have to remove the battery and follow all the steps if i’m to just upgrade the ram?

    • IML Tech

      @ nam,
      It looks like Aspire v5 can needs DDR3 1333 MHz RAM.
      It supports 8 GB RAM (use two 4GB modules).

      Also do i have to remove the battery and follow all the steps if i’m to just upgrade the ram?

      You don’t have to remove the battery but probably you should disconnect the battery cable from the motherboard.

    Quick question. I have a 552g – which has a similar keyboard configuration. I can not for the life of me figure out how to replace it. I can’t get the front plate off, and going in from the back hasn’t proved fruitful. Is there something I’m missing? Or are these keyboards extremely difficult to replace?

    I have the same question as Aaron re: this Acer Aspire line … does the keyboard get replaced? Is there a way for a DIY keyboard replacement to be performed? IF you know, please post.
