Which are retaining screws for dvd on aspire 9300-5317

I have an acer aspire 9300-5317 and I need to replace the dvd/cd writer that has stopped working. On the bottom I see two screws that can be the retaining screws for the drive. One or both of them is the screw(s) that hold the drive in place. I don't know which it is. Can anyone help. I don't want to possible unscrew one of the screws holding the motherboard in place. There is a third screw farther up the back but I think it is too far away to be the retaining screw. Second will any slim dvd drive work as a replacement.

You will be better off buying a drive from the manu. As for the screws any screws you remove from the outside should not be holding the motherboard. If you question the screws take them both out but make sure not to jar the thing too bad until you have the new drive in place and screwed back down.

You can find a replacement online. If you're in the US try www.frys.com. The usually have dvd/dvdrw drives on sale for about $30. You might like the lightscribe option. This will allow you to etch labels on lightscribe CD/DVD's.

How to find a cd/dvd writer for acer aspire 4720z model


It can be expensive to replace an internal CD/DVD drive. You might be better off buying an external drive. They're a lot cheaper but yes annoying to have to carry around. If you're still keen on getting a replacement internal drive speak to your local computer technicnan and ask for a quote.

Sounds like the driver is missing. Do you have the driver disc, if you do then reinstall it. Have you also reinstalled the program to run cd/dvd ie Nero. You should have all the drivers on a disc that came with laptop. If not, try going to the following site and see if the missing driver is available.

Failing that, you may get it at one of the driver download sites

Hi, heres a few for sale cheap, http://www.ebuyer.com/cat/CD---DVD-Drives/subcat/Slimline-Drives
all you need to do is remove the keyboard on the laptop, and remove screws, once you have it open you should see a screw holding in the old dvd drive, just unscrew it and take it out and refit the new one and seal it back up and thats you..

Have a nice christmas
