no no no!!! 1st, i know how to disassemble it because i found the service manual in ftp.compal.com. 2nd i wasn't afraid for the screws because i am carefull !!
but i did a paint job on a acer 1600
3rd i disassemble it because i like to know what i brought.. lol no . My right speaker was making a strange scratch noise and there was a lack of bass, so, i made bass reflex possible lol
the top cover covered the bass reflex hole, so i had to make a hole in the top cover so the bass could come out. Because you can see on the speaker foto that there is a bass reflex hole !! it is not that diferent but it is litle better .
