It's suppose to be that way. If you look closely at the CD tray there are tiny spring loaded notches. Just push the cd down and it will snap on the the center. This is designed to hold the disc in place.

Unplug from the mains and then remove the battery. Leave for ten minutes then put the battery back on. If it still does not work then it has had it. turn it over so you can access the underside and locate the one screw that holds the drive to the chassis. remove the screw and the drive will slide out. Take the drive to a computer shop and buy a replacement. refit in reverse and all will be well.

Repair ACER Keyboard


Many a times, laptop's keys fell off the keyboard or it gets damaged. Don't fret on buying a whole new keyboard when you can repair the keys yourself.
This is an installation guide to repair keys of Acer’s laptop keyboard.

You should have a key cap and 2 or more retainer clips (plastic pieces), that goes underneath the key cap.

To install the key on your laptop keyboard, start out by observing the metal plates on the keyboard.

Always be sure to look at the metal keys because they differ in every keyboard. The larger metal hooks can be at the top, bottom, right or left side. The position of the metal hooks determines the position of plastic pieces.

Here you can see that it has one large metal hook at the bottom and two metal hooks at the top.

Take the larger plastic piece and observe that it has two holes at the top corners, two sticks at the bottom and two holes in the middle. The top holes are going to go into the top metal hooks on the keyboard. The smooth part of the plastic piece faces away from the keyboard.

Take the smaller plastic piece and observe that it has two holes at the top, two sticks at the middle and a bar with larger hole at the bottom. The sticks in the middle are going to go into the middle holes of the larger plastic piece. The bottom bar is going to click onto the bottom metal hook on the keyboard. The smooth part of the plastic piece faces away from the keyboard.

Place the smaller plastic piece onto the larger plastic piece and insert its sticks to the holes of larger piece. It’s one piece now.

Insert the top plastic sticks into the top metal holes and the bottom bar into the bottom metal hook on the keyboard. Get a thin object or a blade and stretch the plastic pieces downwards to insert completely.

Take your letter key cap, put it in the middle of the plastic pieces and push down evenly from all four sides.

How do you remove the cd/dvd drive from the asus pro50 series notebook?


I'm not sure about your charger problem. To remove the charger just pull out the plug by the thicker part at the plug (not by the thinner wire).

Look for a small hole near the CD door. Using a large straightened paper clip push in while gentle pulling on the drive. There is also a small hole which releases the CD tray. If the drive does not have this hole look on the bottom of the laptop and locate the small screw retaining the drive. When reinstalling do it slowly, keeping the drive very straight as there are several connections it goes into on the laptop.

I cannot get my CD out of my Dell Studio. Where is the eject button?


In an emergency you can use an unbent paperclip (or anything similar) in the tiny hole on the front of the drive, that will release the catch and open the drive. You can do this with the notebook on or off.

LAPTOP DVD DRIVE WONT PLAY DVDS ANYMORE


Drive is on its way. Typical behaviour. Try air dusting lens but unlikely to fix it. Very easy diy repair and cheap. EBay the new disc drive or refurbished. Then go to youtube. Nearly all laptop drives are the same to replace no matTerry brand. You could even get a faster drive.
