Alrite people, here is my issue.

I bought a DW1390 mini pcie card for my Acer Aspire One (in the hopes to install OSX), however, I am not sure how to install it (the card, not OS X, my friend has that covered).

Any help would be appreciated, I will check back tomorrow morning, as it is late now and I just came back from a vacation, so I have major jet lag. So yea...

Second link contains any and all Acer product user manuals. I figured it contained information pertaining to the swapping out/installation of PCI-e cards.

That second link does not help at all about the wifi card.

Anyways, I can get the keyboard off/unscrew everything just fine, EXCEPT, when I try to unscrew the 2 screws that are under the rubber feet, they feel like they are glued in place, and I cannot for the life of me unscrew them... SO FRUSTRATING!

Also, I thought I broke the keyboard when I got it off because when I pulled out the ribbon, a black piece fell off, and I didn't know where it went at first (took like 10 minutes to figure it out that it had a lever-type role).

Any help that you could possibly think of to get the screw out from under the feet would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot btw.

Sorry that second link didn't help. You would think they have all the information about adding, subtracting, disassembling and reassembling your computer in the manual... Oh well.

Hmm. I can't say that I've tried this on my laptop - but have you tried a power drill? If you're familiar with automotive parts, most vital bolts have a type of semi-adhesive referred to as thread locker to ensure parts don't loosen up over time, there may be something similar on those screws.

I was searching and found this:


Is that what you're looking at?

I'm sorry, I'm not too familiar with Acer's line of notebooks

Basically I can disassemble the keyboard and that sorta stuff inside, but I cannot unscrew the 2 screws under the feet, they are just too tuff to get at them.

Swapped the card, now just gotta install Mac OS X to test it out (which I have to download).
