useless guide, there are a lot of screws that lock the cover on the laptop and you have never showed them

You do not need to remove the whole cover, in order to replace the keyboard.

The description for this job is right.

The switch plate cover just pops off.

Screws revealed, secure the keyboard.

Unclip the ribbon cable.

KALALA - Responder

Thank you. I followed the guide as closely as possible. I am installing Windows 76 Ultimate on it again.

Thank you!

a lot of stuff missing in terms of unscrewing certain screws to get the cover off. I got stuck at step 10 because the cover was still attached by various screws.

Maybe I have a different model, but it is for sure an Acer Aspire 5100.

I also broke a lot of connection where screws thread in to, hopefully it goes back together rigidly enough.

It is not neccessary for a full strip down, just to get at the CPU. Access from the main cover, remove fan and heatsink. The CPU can now be removed as in the final steps.

Richard - Responder

You have to remove the video cable, wifi cables and LCD before you try to remove the touchpad/upper cover. You must also remove two screws from the bottom labeled 10x. In other words, you should complete steps 12 to 16 and remove the 10x screws before attempting to complete steps 9 to 11.

The Fan must also be removed before removing the touchpad/upper cover.
