How do you replace a fan in an acer L5100 Ultra Small Form Factor machine
Ok well here is what you need to do. Open the case and the heatsink that is on the processor is able to be removed but you need to unscrew the screws for the processor as well. That is the only way that you will be able to get that fan off and replaced. The processor may need to be removed completely from your CPU board in order to get the fan off. Let me know if that helped you out if not please tell me what did happen and I can help you further.
