Solved Can't remove my laptop touchpad/cover on an Acer aspire 5315

Acer Aspire as5315-2826-vhb notebook
March 1, 2012 at 08:12:25
Specs: Windows 7, 2GB
Trying to remove the touchpad/cover on my Acer aspire 5315. removed the keyboard successfully and the power switch cover. The catch at the front of the laptop is preventing me from completing the removal of the touchpad/cover. I need to replace it as the existing touchpad has failed . Have to use a usb mouse. Frustrating as it is nearly off but the catch is preventing removal.
Anybody know how to do it or where I can download a service manual for the 5315.

You will need to separate the two halves of the case...

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

✔ Best Answer
May they are screws still holding it.
Is this your first laptop to open?

I have dismantled netbooks before, but this is a bit more dificult. I think that I have got all the screws out. Will check it again though as you may be right . perhaps a screw is holdingit together.

Thanks
