Having problems with your Acer Extensa 5420-5687 Notebook ?

Hi, my laptop's monitor is broken, I mean the plastic top cover is broken by the corner where the hinges are to open and close. The monitor is still in place but I fear the monitor to come apart any moment and disconect itself from the laptop. Is it possible to repair it at a low cost?


Answers :

If it is a minor crack you can actually use Krazy Glue. Use it sparingly and let it dry completely. Be careful not to glue the hinge in place.

\015\012Another option is to search for a replacement on eBay. Just search for "Acer Extensa 5420-5687" It would be best to have an assembly manual for this task. Ask the seller of the monitor for help or check Acer's website.
\015\012I recommend using a digital camera and taking pictures as you go to make sure you can put it back together correctly. Make sure you have the correct size screw driver and be very careful not to strip the screw heads.

\015\012Last resort is to send it in for repair but that may cost more than replacing it.

CPU overheating I was wondering if anyone knew about any cpu overheating problems with the gateway MT3422. I have read several articles on this issue, and wonder if this may be my problem.

Computer monitor I leave my computer on all the time and recently my monitor will not stay on. The power light is green (not orange for standby) but the screen is black.
