Please see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dF8ac9FcF2wPlease skip video to 0:46 seconds to see how to remove it.

Video seems to show different model. Have checked instruction book. It shows model of base and shows battery reset pinhole which simulates removing and reinstalling the battery, it says. Shall i use that?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Have done as you suggested using the battery reset pinhole. Still Wont Open.

Are you still there?

Can you look at the bottom of the laptop and tell me the exact model # ***** product code?

Model number ms2377
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 1 year ago.
I found the following instructions:There’s an unusual latch holding the battery in place. In order to remove the battery, you need to flip over the laptop and stick a pen, paperclip, or other item into a small hole and slide the latch while pulling the battery.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I cant see any small hole other than the battery reset pinhole, which ive tried. Where exactly is it? And where is the latch you mention?
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 1 year ago.
I just checked with the model # ***** seems like this one doesn't have a user removable battery. Can you press and hold the power button for 60 seconds, and then turn it back on to test?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Done that , no difference I'm afraid
Expert:  Kamil Anwar replied 1 year ago.
I will have to opt out for other experts as i'v run out ideas.

Hello Sue, and thank you for choosing jUSTANSWER.com.I believe that your computer is suffering from a potential hardware failure..Are you able to get into the BIOS, before the screen sticks on the ACER EXPLORE BEYOND LIMITS?.Normally, as soon as you power on the laptop, you need to start hitting the DEL key (delete) repeatedly.This should take you to the BIOS.Once you are in the BIOS, you might be able to run some diagnostics on the hardware.
Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 1 year ago.
Sorry, it is not the DEL key you need to press repeatedly....it is actually the [email protected] key.i pulled the below from the manual..To activate the BIOS utility, press <F2> during the POST while the computer logo is being displayed.

Thanks. I'll try that and get back to you. Am out at the moment.
