Acer Aspire Z3101-E3812 Repair

Hello Everyone,

I have a Acer Aspire Z3101-E3812 in for a tune-up.  The thing is backed full of dust and needs to be blown out and I would also like to apply fresh thermal paste.

Anyone have a repair manual or a link to show me how to take this sucker apart.

I have used various search engines like google, yahoo and bing.

Acer Aspire Z3101-E3812 Repair Manual

No luck.  If anyone has a link that would be great.

Thanks,

James

Hi,

It is not a laptop and have had no luck finding any youtube "how to's" or manuals.

This is what it looks like.  Different model.

Is the Z3750 any help?

I'm sure the Z3101 manual is in the same directory but guessing the file name escapes me!!
