Got overheat on your Acer Aspire 5052ANWXMi ? does it slow down its performance? Once a time ago I messed up with that case.
If your finding your Acer 5052ANWXMi to be slow and overheat, there are a couple of choices open to us.
Before we begin I would just like to point out. “to replace your current processor you will need to dismantle most of your laptop” We accept no responsibility if you damage your laptop while attempting this. So perform the following at your own risk. (Course my laptop is out of its warranty So i decided to dismantle it and make the repair myself).
Make sure you have a clean and spacious working environment,earth yourself regularly to help prevent ESD or Electro Static Discharge damaging sensitive electronic components. Work in an organized fashion, making sure you make a note of screw locations connectors etc.
To begin with ensure power cable is removed. Place your laptop screen closed upside down, so you can access the battery and the two screwed on panels.
Remove the Battery and the two screwed on Panels
Remember to earth yourself, remove the RAM, WIFI card (Making a note of which black or white cable goes where), remove the hard drive.
Turning the laptop over and remove the 3 screws at the rear of the case.
open the screen as far back as it will go, Pop up the small part of the cover where the on and special buttons are located, it should release from the back first. Remember to cover the screen with cardboard or like, for protection, just in case.
This will reveal the two screws holding the keyboard remove these and gently remove the cable while removing the keyboard.
Now unscrew the 4 screws by the screen hinges securing the monitor and unclip it’s cable. The small black and white cable also going into the screen is the WiFi aerial so this can be pulled through.
Remove any screws securing the top cover, remove the mouse pad cable and ease it free from the rest of the laptop.
Unscrew any screws securing the motherboard
Slide out the DVD drive
Lift out the motherboard until you have enough space to access the processor
Unscrew and remove the heat sink
Simply replace thermalpad with new thermalpaste
To re-assemble, go through the list backwards to put back together. Before completely re-assemble your laptop, I suggest you to as showed in picture bellow:
Once finished complete re-assembling you’ll hopefully see satisfactory, check using program such as HWmonitor.
gud luck guys! 🙂
