Clean the fan of Acer Aspire One

I used Acer Aspire One very often these days. Just feel the fan is too noisy. I think it is time to clean it now.
But, it is not a PC. It is a Netbook. Very compact. How to disassemble it?
I googled it and found a very good guide here.
I follow the steps and disassembled it and took the fan off. Clean the fan and installed it again.
Everything is fine, except the SSD is not found by Bios. I have to redo it to make sure the cable of SSD is perfectly installed.
Now it is very quiet when the system is on.

Replac the fan of power supply unit

I replaced the fan of power supply unit(PSU) in PC. The fan was too noise to sit beside the PC.

I bought one PSU fan last friday in Crystal Mall. It’s $9.
EverFlow F128025SM, 12V, 0.14AMP, 2400rpm, 26db.

To remove the failed fan and put the new one on is not difficult for me. I knon how to weld.

The only thing I want to keep is how to test the PSU without installing it into the PC.

This post tells you the simply way.

If you want to test the power supply before it’s installed in your system, take a spare piece of wire about 2 inches long, strip the ends and bend it in a “U” shape. Find the 20-pin motherboard connector and connect the green wire to the black wire next to it as shown. Then plug the power cord in and the power supply will come on.
