Replacing power supply is simple.
\015\0121. unplug power,monitor,kybrd,mouse,printer...etc.
\015\0122. remove cover
\015\0123. while hold case unplug power from drives, and motherboard (only those connected to power supply).
\015\0124. remove screws attaching power supply to case.
\015\0125. remove power supply.
\015\012To install new power supply just follow in reverse what you just did to remove it.

First of all, aspire RC500 uses a non-standard powersupply and a non-standard (complicated) design.

Second, to all who says to download user manual, it's useless. The poster is looking for service manual.

Third, here is what to do for opening up the case, if you are lucky enough to get a replacement powersupply.

1. Once you have opened the side of the case, look inside. ON the top side, there are two screws with arrows (1 in the middle and the other towards back). Take those out to slide open the top cover backwards.
2. Remove the small screw in side of front cover to remove the cover holding power button.
3. See the two black tags on side, release them to remove the front cover.
4. Now you can easily push out the dvd bay and floppy through the space in the front.
5. for removing power supply, you need to remove a screw at the bottom of the case. (yes, the PS is at the bottom of the case and you cannot remove it easily. As a matter of fact, i'm pretty sure, it would be frustrating to the most technically skilled person. Even then you can only use their own stupid part.

Hello again....i've just discovered within the setup and PC health status that there seems to be a problem with the 12v supply. There are 3 different Voltage meters: 1) 12V 2) 5V 3) 3.3V Alongside these is the actual reading supplied and the 5V and 3.3V show a correct reading, however the 12V supply only shows 0.06V. If fear that this is why the fan isn't working. any ideas???.....HELP

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip. It works, but obviously isn't a permanent answer. New screen and/or inverter indicated? 2) computer only works from the battery - about 1 hour's use from full charge.
