The PC is in fair condition, a sign that those who possess it takes sufficient care.
However when you lift the monitor feels that the right hinge is practically blocked. And then after a few minutes of operation the fan starts spinning very fast, a sign that is undergoing a slight overheating.
For review of this PC I used a very small arsenal:
- Usual set of screwdrivers;
- Compressed air;
- Thermal Paste
- Spray oliante (any brand, type svitoil) to oil the hinges
We start with the open doors of the underside and svitiamo all screws:
Detach all peripherals:
Now it’s up to the keyboard: we leverage on the latches that hold it anchored to the body and gently solleviamola, by unplugging the flat:
Now let us reflect on the plate / panel located above the keyboard: we raise from the monitor and detach the flat of the panel:
On the underside, detach the WiFi card and antenna cables:
Unplug the antenna cables and carefully detach the plug of the screen and detach all flat and the pins that we see:
Svitiamo the only 2 screws that hold the brackets of the monitor to the rest of the pc
Now before you play with the hinges, we clean the interior. Detach the upper part of the shell which is stuck to the below part, helping with a pick or a plastic screwdriver:
We now come to the motherboard. Unplug all cables / flat attached to it and Take the screws that secure it to the base, then gently lifting it:
Once you remove the motherboard from the rest, we can work on it.
Take the screws and detach the entire heatsink fan assembly – sinks.
Take the screws of the fan, we disconnect its power cable and estraiamola. Then with compressed air we clean the heatsink and the fan, helping us with a small brush.
Clean up carefully processors and sinks from the old pasta and sostituiamola with the new, spalmandone a thin layer without smudges (especially if you use pasta with metallic content as silver).
Remount the fan and heat sink, being careful to follow any number of screws on the heatsinks.
Reposition the motherboard dell ‘Acer Aspire 5738G in its housing, cables and riattachiamo flet and following the process on the contrary we close the shell, then moved to dwell on the monitor and on the hinges.
Svitiamo the 4 screws that surround the body of the monitor, raising four grommets at the ends that hide the screws.
In my case I have noticed that the zipper was left virtually semi blocked: I unscrewed the screws that bound the zipper to the monitor, gently pulling.
At this point I have filled with oil spray the entire hinge, closing it and opening it repeatedly and VERY SLOWLY with two clamps.
In practice, I simulated the opening and closing of the monitor for many times, occasionally adding another bit of oil spray.
After 5 minutes the zipper slowly at first and then more rapidly, has begun to unlock. Is not returned as a normal hinge but has improved markedly, with no risk of breaking.
Then you can close the everything and test the PC to see if it overheats again and if all devices are working properly.
