Having problems with your Acer Aspire L100 PC Desktop ?

Cleaning The Tower [inside]

\015 I have an Acer Aspire T180. I would like to clean inside the Tower. I removed the two screws. But I could not get it to slide off. Have I missed something? Is there something else holding it in place? I would appreciate some advice. Thank You\015

Answers :

There is a black lever just above the bottom screw...after removing the screws, push down on the lever and it should release the case to slide off
With the palm of your hand, hit and slide the casing back, sometimes casing can be very tough to get off so dont be afraid to use some force.
Also when cleaning the inside try to use compressed air and not a vaccum and when cleaning the fans put your finger in the fan to stop it spinning, the fan can generate enough electricity to fry everything if the system is not turned on.
