Removing cd rom


The optical (CD) drive on your Acer laptop connects to the side of the device and is accessed via the underside of the computer.
If you are having problems with the optical drive on your laptop you should address it as soon as possible, and one thing you may need to do is remove it.
The good news is that even if you aren't particularly tech savvy, you'll find that the process of removing and replacing your optical drive is relatively easy.
Turn your Acer off and remove any power cables that may be attached to the side of the unit. Turn your Acer upside down.
Slide the battery out of its compartment on the underside of the computer.

Locate the circular optical drive retaining screw on the underside of your laptop.
It is located just above the square WiFi compartment in the middle of the computer.

Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw and set it aside.
Grip the optical drive by its edge on the side of the computer and gently pull to remove it from the computer.
Slide a new optical drive into the computer, making sure the disk opening is facing out of the laptop.
Replace the optical drive screw.

Replace the CD Drive on an Acer Aspire 5000
The CD drive of the Acer Aspire 5000 is designed like most other laptop optical drives.
The CD drive is on the right-hand side of the computer and is attached with screws from the back of the case.
All you need to complete the task is a screwdriver.
To avoid electric shock or damage to the laptop, always ground your tools by touching them against a metal object like a table leg before using them on the computer.

Turn the Acer Aspire 5000 laptop off.
Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet. Remove the power cord from the power supply in the side of the laptop.
Flip the laptop over so you are looking at the bottom of the case.
Slide the battery pack off the top of the case.
You'll see the CD drive on the left-hand side of the laptop when you are looking at the bottom of the case.

Unfasten the screws that are holding the CD drive onto the laptop with a screwdriver. Slide the drive out of the case.
Slide the new CD drive into the case and secure it with the screws.
Place the battery pack in the laptop and turn the computer back over so it is sitting on its base. Plug the power cord into the power supply in the side of the laptop.
Plug the other end of the cord into the electrical outlet.

HOW TO GET THE BACK OFF


Break it off..........

In order to take the Base Enclosure (Bottom Cover) off, you would have to break it off.

The Acer Aspire 5000 series of Notebook PC's, disassembles from the Top down. When you are done you are looking at an empty Base Enclosure,

You have to;
Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Remove the Harddrive Compartment Cover, Harddrive, Memory Compartment Cover, Ram Memory, Wireless Module, Wireless Antenna wires out of laptop body, Optical Disk Drive, (DVD drive), Display Assembly, (LCD Module), Keyboard Cover, Keyboard, Palm Rest Cover, Motherboard, and so on..........

Then you have the Base Enclosure. (Bottom Cover)

WEAR an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

How do I remove acer aspire 9810 keyboard,I have removed the base cover and screen assembly but I cant fugure out how to remove the keyboard Thanks in advance Peter


to remove the keyboard, remove the screws at the back of your laptop. Then remove the Hard drive, then remove the Optical drive then remove the video card, and then power supply. Then remove the fan from the motherboard and you may remove the screws on top of the keyboard. Finally you may replace the keyboard.

I am looking at the mother board of an Acer aspire one notebook computer. I need to view a diagram of the cmos battery to remove it to resolve a password problem.


the CMOS battery is usually located/accessed by removing the keyboard.

Acer don't seem to want to share that kind on data so here's some stuff which may help, but its for an ASPIRE 3000:-

Before you begin, back up your data and remove the battery. CMOS Bios will be lost but will reset on restart.
    Instructions
  1. Step 1 Open the laptop computer's screen and lay it back as far as it will go. Be careful not to stress the screen and cause any damage, but press it hard if needed.
  2. Step 2 Press a flathead screwdriver under the front of the plastic bar lining the back of the laptop's keyboard. Pry the bar up slightly and hold it with one hand.
  3. Step 3 Pry up the other side of the bar with the flathead screwdriver and fully pull out the bar. Keep its ribbon cord connected and set the bar on the laptop's screen.
  4. Step 4 Remove the two Phillips screws securing the computer's keyboard. Then, slide the keyboard up and out to remove it. Again, do not remove its ribbon cord, and set the keyboard over the laptop's touch pad.
  5. Step 5 Remove the four screws securing the cover plate over the motherboard and remove it as well.
  6. Step 6 Locate the CMOS battery at the bottom right corner of the motherboard.
  7. Step 7 Remove the battery by prying it up gently with the flathead screwdriver. Then, replace the battery with a new one of the exact same specifications.
  8. Step 8 Replace all the parts in the laptop in the reverse order that you removed them. -Battery Replacement

This didn't quite do the job, the Aspire was a bit of a so and so. So here's how I changed it on a 3000:-

Acer Aspire 3000 CMOS battery replacement.
------------------------------------------
Before going any further, you need to know that Acer have done you no favours, this laptop is especially designed to raise revenue for Acer and other laptop technicians. This is a fiddly task and you could do with 3 hands.

1) The cmos battery is on the motherboard about half way down the left hand side, turn your laptop upside down and you should see a locking screw for the optical drive, its just inboard from that screw under the bottom cover plate.

2) The motherboard on the ACER Aspire 3000 is upside down, so it faces the bottom plate or table it sits on.

3) The battery is a 3v Maxell ML1220 or equivalent. About the size of your little finger nail.

----------------

Before dismantling your laptop, disconnect the power supply and remove the battery. Then read these instructions thoroughly, make sure you are happy with what you are going to do.

1) Ensure you've got plenty of work space, a plate/dish for the screws and I like to work on a newspaper so I can swivel it all around without scratching anything.

2) Close the laptop, remove the screws from the 3 hinge covers.Open laptop until flat, gently prise off the top backplate. It includes the hinge covers, buttons etc and continues down as far as the top of the keyboard.

Start at one end gently teasing/prising it upwards until it comes free, there are no connections.

3) Removed the 2 screws holding the keyboard down, lift the keyboard gently and place it upside down on the mouseplate, don't break the ribbon connector.

4) Remove the three remaining screws from under the keyboard, one of these is a second optical drive lock screw. Replace the keyboard in its bed, close the laptop and turn it over.

5) Remove all screws and covers from the bottom plate. Remove HDD and the Optical drive, but leave CPU, RAM and WIFI in place. There are 2 further screws one in the battery well and one in the HDD well,remove those also.

6) Very gently, from the side of the laptop where the DVD drive sits, prise the bottom plate away. It won't come away completely. There's a speaker connector at the front at the other end. Bear in mind you'll probably need the lid open as well.
7) Once you have the bottom plate prised far enought apart, you should be able to see the battery, on the motherboard about half way down just about where the back of the DVD Drive would sit. Its in a white plastic mounting, and should be able to flick it out with your finger nail or a screw driver. It may be a good idea to get a second pair of hands to hold the laptop while you replace the battery.

Remember the negative side of the battery sits in the mounting, Positive side upwards.

8) Re-assemble laptop, reverse order to dismantling.
9) Keep fingers crossed whey you re-boot.



Good Luck.

How do i remove the cd/dvd drive for my acer3003lc so that a can replace it


You can use the Toshiba Satellite 5205 guide for removing and replacing the DVD/CD-ROM drive or the keyboard. On this model you have to remove the keyboard in order to remove and replace the DVD/CD-ROM drive because the optical drive securing screw is located under the keyboard. Always start laptop disassembly with removing the battery or you can damage the system board if you accidentally touch it with a screwdriver and shorten traces. Removing the keyboard strip is not very difficult, use your fingers to release the plastic latches. If you want to replace the keyboard, do not forget to unlock the connector on the system boar before you pull the cable.

for the acer 3000
1. At the back of the laptop remove the three screws on the support posts for the screen
2. Open the laptop fully and lift the plastic panel that has the power button.
3. Remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard in place
4. Carefully slide the keyboard towards the monitor and lift.
5. To the left of the keyboard ribbon cable is the screw that's been causing all this grief.
6. Remove, slide out optical drive, reassemble.
