    Hello,

    I had to remove the rear cover of my Acer Aspire 5735Z laptop. Seven screws needed to be removed. Three very small black rubber(?) O rings, under 2mm in diameter, dropped out as I removed the cover. Does anyone know where they should go and does it matter if they are not reinserted?

    Many thanks.

    Possibly just for vibration dampening? Can't imagine that if they fell out when taking off external casing screws that they are anything more vital.

    Remember - it's not a proper fix unless there's something left over!

    do they not go around the bits that fix the top to the bottom? I think its just to stop plastic touching plastic.

    I'm not too sure.

    Is it that the plastic will wear without the O rings?

    Many thanks,
