Preface

Before using this information and the product it supports, please read the following general information.

1.This Service Guide provides you with all technical information relating to the BASIC CONFIGURATION decided for Acer's "global" product offering. To better fit local market requirements and enhance product competitiveness, your regional office MAY have decided to extend the functionality of a machine (e.g. add-on card, modem, or extra memory capability). These LOCALIZED FEATURES will NOT be covered in this generic service guide. In such cases, please contact your regional offices or the responsible personnel/channel to provide you with further technical details.

2.Please note WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, that you should check the most up-to-date information available on your regional web or channel. If, for whatever reason, a part number change is made, it will not be noted in the printed Service Guide. For ACER-AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Acer office may have a DIFFERENT part number code to those given in the FRU list of this printed Service Guide. You MUST use the list provided by your regional Acer office to order FRU parts for repair and service of customer machines.

TouchPad Basics

The following items show you how to use the TouchPad:

Move your finger across the TouchPad (1) to move the cursor.

Press the left (2) and right (3) buttons located beneath the TouchPad to perform selection and execution functions. These two buttons are similar to the left and right buttons on a mouse. Tapping on the TouchPad is the same as clicking the left button.

NOTE: When using the TouchPad, keep it - and your fingers - dry and clean. The TouchPad is sensitive to finger movement; hence, the lighter the touch, the better the response. Tapping too hard will not increase the TouchPad’s responsiveness.

Using the Keyboard

Your Packard Bell dot Series has a close-to-full-sized keyboard and an embedded numeric keypad, separate cursor, lock, function and special keys.

Lock Keys and embedded numeric keypad

The keyboard has three lock keys which you can toggle on and off.

Lock key

Description

 

 

Caps Lock

When Caps Lock is on, all alphabetic characters typed are in uppercase.

Num Lock

When Num Lock is on, the embedded keypad is in numeric mode. The keys

<Fn> + <F11>

function as a calculator (complete with the arithmetic operators +, -, *, and /). Use

 

this mode when you need to do a lot of numeric data entry. A better solution

 

would be to connect an external keypad.

 

 

Scroll Lock <Fn> +

When Scroll Lock is on, the screen moves one line up or down when you press

<F12>

the up or down arrow keys respectively. Scroll Lock does not work with some

 

applications.

 

 

The embedded numeric keypad functions like a desktop numeric keypad. It is indicated by small characters located on the upper right corner of the keycaps. To simplify the keyboard legend, cursor-control key symbols are not printed on the keys.

System Utilities

BIOS Setup Utility

The BIOS Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into your computer’s BIOS (Basic Input/ Output System).

Your computer is already properly configured and optimized, and you do not need to run this utility. However, if you encounter configuration problems, you may need to run Setup. Please also refer to Chapter 4 Troubleshooting when problem arises.

To activate the BIOS Utility, press F2 during POST (when Press <F2> to enter Setup message is prompted on the bottom of screen).

Press F2 to enter setup. The default parameter of F12 Boot Menu is set to “disabled”. If you want to change boot device without entering BIOS Setup Utility, please set the parameter to “enabled”.

Press <F12> during POST to enter multi-boot menu. In this menu, user can change boot device without entering BIOS SETUP Utility.

Navigating the BIOS Utility

There are six menu options: Information, Main, Advanced, Security, Power, Boot, and Exit. Follow these instructions:

To choose a menu, use the left and right arrow keys.

To choose an item, use the up and down arrow keys.

To change the value of a parameter, press F5 or F6.

A plus sign (+) indicates the item has sub-items. Press Enter to expand this item.

Press Esc while you are in any of the menu options to go to the Exit menu.

In any menu, you can load default settings by pressing F9. You can also press F10 to save any changes made and exit the BIOS Setup Utility.

BIOS Flash Utility

The BIOS flash memory update is required for the following conditions:

New versions of system programs

New features or options

Restore a BIOS when it becomes corrupted. Use the Phlash utility to update the system BIOS flash ROM.

NOTE: If you do not have a crisis recovery diskette at hand, then you should create a Crisis Recovery Diskette before you use the Phlash utility.

NOTE: Do not install memory-related drivers (XMS, EMS, DPMI) when you use the Phlash.

NOTE: Please use the AC adaptor power supply when you run the Phlash utility. If the battery pack does not contain enough power to finish BIOS flash, you may not boot the system because the BIOS is not completely loaded.

Remove HDD/BIOS Password Utilities

This section provides you with details about removing HDD/BIOS password methods:

Removing HDD Password:

If you key in the wrong HDD password three times, an error code is generated.

To reset the HDD password, perform the following steps:

1.On a different machine, run the HDD_PW.EXE file along with the error code generated. For example: hdd_pw 15494 0

2.Select an option to generate upper case or lower case ASCII code for unlocking the HDD.

3.Two strings are generated as output. Select and note down either one of the strings.

4.Reboot the machine with the locked HDD and then use either one of the strings as the HDD user password.

Chapter 2

33

Removing BIOS Passwords:

If you key in the wrong Supervisor password three times, an error code is generated and system is disabled.

To unlock the BIOS, perform the following steps:

1.On a different machine, run the BIOS_PW.EXE file along with the error code generated. For example: bios_pw 14452 0

2.Four ASCII strings are generated as output. Select and note down any one of the strings.

3.Reboot the machine with the locked BIOS and then use either any of the strings as the BIOS user password.

Machine Disassembly and Replacement

This chapter contains step-by-step procedures on how to disassemble the notebook computer for maintenance and troubleshooting.

Disassembly Requirements

To disassemble the computer, you need the following tools:

Wrist grounding strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge

Flat screwdriver

Philips screwdriver

Plastic flat screwdriver

Plastic tweezers

NOTE: The screws for the different components vary in size. During the disassembly process, group the screws with the corresponding components to avoid mismatch when putting back the components.

Related Information

The product previews seen in the disassembly procedures may not represent the final product color or configuration.

IMPORTANT: Cable paths and positioning may not represent the actual model. During the removal and replacement of components, ensure all available cable channels and clips are used and that the cables are replaced in the same position.

Chapter 3

35

General Information

Pre-disassembly Instructions

Before proceeding with the disassembly procedure, make sure that you do the following:

1.Turn off the power to the system and all peripherals.

2.Unplug the AC adapter and all power and signal cables from the system.

3.Place the system on a flat, stable surface.

4.Remove the battery pack.

Disassembly Process

The disassembly process is divided into the following sections:

External components disassembly

Main unit disassembly

LCD module disassembly

The flowcharts provided in the succeeding disassembly sections illustrate the entire disassembly sequence. Observe the order of the sequence to avoid damage to any of the hardware components. For example, if you want to remove the Mainboard, you must first remove the Keyboard, and LCD Module then disassemble the inside assembly frame in that order.
