CHAPTER 3: Replacing notebook components
Preventing static electricity discharge
Warning
To avoid exposure to dangerous electrical voltages and moving
parts, turn off your notebook, remove the battery, and unplug the
power cord and network cable before opening the case.
Warning
To prevent risk of electric shock, do not insert any object into the
vent holes of the notebook.
Important
Before performing maintenance on the notebook, you should read
and understand the information in this section.
The components inside your notebook are extremely sensitive to static electricity,
also known as electrostatic discharge (ESD).
Before performing maintenance on the notebook, follow these guidelines:
• Avoid static-causing surfaces such as carpeted floors, plastic, and packing
foam.
• Remove components from their antistatic bags only when you are ready to
•
•
•
use them. Do not lay components on the outside of antistatic bags because
only the inside of the bags provide electrostatic protection.
Always hold components by their edges. Avoid touching the edge
connectors. Never slide components over any surface.
Wear a grounding wrist strap (available at most electronics stores) and attach
it to a bare metal part of your workbench or other grounded connection.
Touch a bare metal surface on your workbench or other grounded object.
Tape
Some of the procedures in this guide involve removing tape that secures cables
or components. Two types of tape are used in this notebook:
• Mylar, non-conductive tape is typically transparent, with a red or brown tint.
• Conductive tape is typically grey or silver in color.
If the existing tape cannot be reused, replace it with the same type. Make sure
the replacement tape is of the non-ESD generating kind. Do not use cellophane
tape.
44
www.gateway.com
Preparing the work space
Before performing maintenance on the notebook, make sure that your work space
and the notebook are correctly prepared.
• Wear a grounding (ESD) wrist strap, and use a grounded or dissipative work
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
mat.
Use a sturdy table. Make sure that the table top is wide enough to hold each
component as you remove it.
Ensure that clear lighting condition is available to make part identification
easier.
Keep your work surface free from clutter and debris that may damage
components.
Use a magnetized screwdriver for removing screws.
When removing components that are attached to the notebook by a cable,
unplug the cable before removing the screws, when possible, to avoid
damaging the cable.
As you remove components and screws, lay them toward the rear of your
work surface (behind the notebook) or far enough to the side that your arms
will not accidentally brush them onto the floor.
To help keep track of screws, try the following:
– Place each component’s screws in their own section of a parts sorter.
– Place each component’s screws next to the component on your work
surface.
– Print the first page of each task, then place the page toward the rear of
your work surface. As you remove screws, place the screws in their
respective section on the page.
– After loosening screws that are deeply recessed in a hole (for example,
on the bottom of the base assembly), you can leave the screws in the
holes if you place small pieces of masking tape over the hole openings.
When reassembling the component, just remove the tape and tighten
the screws.
– When you place flat-headed screws on the work surface, stand them
on their heads to prevent the screws from rolling off the table.

System test procedures
Testing the optical drive
Use the following procedure to isolate a problem in an optical drive controller,
driver, or drive.
Important
Make sure that the CD-ROM does not have any label attached to it. The
label can cause damage to the drive or can cause the drive to fail.
To test the optical drive:
1 Boot from the diagnostics diskette and start the diagnostics program.
2 Run the CD-ROM Test and see if the test completes successfully.
3 Follow the instructions in the message window.
If an error occurs, reconnect the connector on the system board.
If the error still remains:
4 Reconnect the external optical drive to a USB jack.
5 Replace the external optical drive.
6 Replace the system board.
Testing the keyboard or auxiliary input device
If the internal keyboard does not work or an unexpected character appears, make
sure that the flexible cable extending from the keyboard is correctly seated in the
connector on the system board. If the keyboard cable is connected correctly, run
the Keyboard Test.
Important
Disconnect any external keyboards before testing the built-in keyboard.
If the tests detect a keyboard problem, do the following one at a time.
To correct the problem:
1 Reconnect the keyboard cable to the system board.
2 Replace the keyboard.
3 Replace the system board.
Important
Do not replace a non-defective FRU.
The following auxiliary input devices are supported by this notebook:
• Numeric keypad
• External keyboard
If any of these devices do not work, reconnect the cable connector and repeat
the failing operation.
117
CHAPTER 4: Troubleshooting
Testing the memory
Memory errors can stop your programs, show error messages on the screen, or
hang the system.
To test the memory:
1 Boot from the diagnostics diskette and start the diagnostics program.
2 Run the Memory Test and see if the test completes successfully.
3 Press F2 in the test items.
4 Follow the instructions in the message window.
Important
Make sure that each memory card is fully installed into the connector.
A loose connection can cause an error.
Testing the power system
To test for a power problem:
• Turn on the notebook using each of the following power sources:
• Remove the battery pack, connect the power adapter, then make sure
that the notebook turns on using AC power.
• Disconnect the power adapter, install a charged battery pack, then make
sure that power is supplied by the battery pack.
If you suspect a power problem, complete the appropriate power supply check:
• “Check the power adapter” on page 118
• “Check the battery pack” on page 119
Check the power adapter
Unplug the power adapter cable from the notebook and measure the output
voltage at the power adapter cable plug. See the following figure.
Pin 1: +19 to +20.5V
Pin 2: 0V, Ground
• If the voltage is not correct, replace the power adapter.
• If the voltage is within the range, do the following:
• Replace the system board.
• If the problem is not corrected, see “Undetermined problems” on page
133.
• If the power-on indicator does not light up, check the power adapter’s
power cord for correct continuity and installation.
• If the operational charge does not work, see “Check the battery pack”
on page 119.
Important
An audible noise from the power adapter does not always indicate
a defect.
118
www.gateway.com
Check the battery pack
To check the battery pack using software:
1 Open Power Management in the Windows Control Panel.
2 In Power Meter, make sure that the parameters shown for Current Power
Source and Total Battery Power Remaining are correct.
3 Repeat the steps 1 and 2, for both battery and adapter. This helps you identify
first the problem is on recharging or discharging.
To check the battery pack using hardware:
1 Turn off the notebook.
2 Remove the battery pack and measure the voltage between battery terminals
1 (+) and 6 (ground).
3 If the voltage is still less than 7.5 Vdc after recharging, replace the battery.
Important
To check the battery charge operation, use a discharged battery pack or a
battery pack that has less than 50% of the total power remaining when installed
in the notebook.
If the battery status indicator does not light up, remove the battery pack and let
it return to room temperature. Re-install the battery pack.
If the charge indicator still does not light up, replace the battery pack. If the charge
indicator still does not light up, replace the DC/DC charger board.
Testing the touchpad
If the touchpad doesn’t work, do the following actions one at a time to correct the
problem.
To test the touchpad:
1 Reconnect the touchpad cables.
2 Replace the touchpad.
3 Replace the system board.
Important
Do not replace a non-defective FRU.
After you use the touchpad, the pointer may drift on the screen for a short time.
This self-acting pointer movement can occur when a slight, steady pressure is
applied to the touchpad pointer. This symptom is not a hardware problem. No
service actions are necessary if the pointer movement stops in a short period of
time.
119
CHAPTER 4: Troubleshooting
Power-On Self-Test (POST) error
message
The POST error message index lists the error message and their possible causes.
The most likely cause is listed first.
Important
Perform the FRU replacement or actions in the sequence shown in the
FRU/Action column. If the FRU replacement does not solve the problem, put the
original part back in the notebook. Do not replace a non-defective FRU.
This index can also help you determine the next possible FRU to be replaced when
servicing a notebook.
If the symptom is not listed, see “Undetermined problems” on page 133.
The following lists the error messages that the BIOS displays on the screen and
the error symptoms classified by function.
Important
Most of the error messages occur during POST. Some of them display
information about a hardware device, such as the amount of memory installed.
Others may indicate a problem with a device, such as the way it has been
configured.
Important
If the system fails after you make changes in the BIOS Setup Utility menus,
reset the notebook, enter Setup, and install Setup defaults or correct the error.

Important
If you cannot find a symptom or an error in this list and the problem remains,
see “Undetermined problems” on page 133.
131
CHAPTER 4: Troubleshooting
Intermittent problems
Intermittent system hang problems can be caused by a variety of reasons that
have nothing to do with a hardware defect. These reasons include: cosmic
radiation, electrostatic discharge, or software errors. FRU replacement should be
considered only when a recurring problem exists.
To analyze an intermittent problem:
1 Run the advanced diagnostic test for the system board in loop mode at least
ten times.
• If any error is detected, replace the FRU.
• If no error is detected, do not replace any FRU.
2 Rerun the test to verify that there are no more errors.
132
www.gateway.com
Undetermined problems
If the diagnostic test may not identify which adapter or device failed, which installed
devices are incorrect, whether a short circuit is suspected, or whether the system
is inoperative. Use these procedures to isolate the failing FRU (do not isolate a
non-defective FRU).
Important
Verify that all attached devices are supported by the notebook.
Important
Verify that the power supply being used at the time of the failure is operating
correctly. (See “Testing the power system” on page 118.)
To isolate a failing FRU:
1 Turn off the notebook.
2 Visually check FRU parts for damage. If you identify any damage, replace
the FRU.
3 Remove or disconnect all of the following devices:
• Non-Acer devices
• Printer, mouse, and other external devices
• Battery pack
• Hard disk drive(s)
• SO-DIMM
• Optical drive
4 Turn on the notebook.
5 Determine if the problem has changed.
• If the problem does not recur, reconnect the removed devices one at a
time until you find the failing FRU.
• If the problem does recur, replace the following FRUs one at a time:
• System board
• LCD assembly
Important
Do not replace a non-defective FRU.

CHAPTER 6: FRU (Field-Replaceable Unit) list
Introduction
This chapter gives you the FRU (field-replaceable-unit) listing in global
configurations of this model. Refer to this chapter whenever ordering for parts to
repair or for RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization).
Please note that WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, you should check the most
up-to-date information available on your regional web or channel. For whatever
reasons a part number change is made, it will not be noted on the printed Service
Guide. For ACER AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Acer office may
have a DIFFERENT part number code from those given in the FRU list of this
printed Service Guide. You MUST use the local FRU list provided by your regional
Acer office to order FRU parts for repair and service of customer machines.
Important
To scrap or to return the defective parts, you should follow the local
government ordinance or regulations on how to dispose it properly, or follow the
rules set by your regional Acer office on how to return it.
