To change the hard drive, you need to unplug the computer and all cables, unscrew screws in back of the case on the other side so you can open the side panel, with the side panel opened you can unscrew the hard drive, if it has screws on another side and you can't get to them then you need to open the other side of the computer aswell and unscrew them from there.

Acer Aspire X1700 CD/DVD drive will not open.


There should be a tiny pinhole somewhere to open the drive, you may need to remove the face plate to access it.

Hope this helps!

Cd drive in my acer aspire x1700 doesn't open


You are going to need a paper clip. Look fo a small hole next to the switch. straighten the paper clip and put it in the hole in the center. carefully push to activate the mechansium to open the door. Then you can troubleshoot the door. Turn off the computer then pull the power cord from it. Open the computer case find the power cable to the cdrom/dvdcdrw and push it in to make sure you have good connection. If it still doesn't work after this then you can get a new drive for less than $30.00 (usd)

Hope this helps,
Terry

My acer x1700 cd drive wont open.. i can hear it attempt to open. i do not have an emergency bottom or push out hole. please help many thanks


CD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you continue having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

I need replacement psu for acer aspire x1700 slimline tower


to be honest, the X1700 is a weak computer, you should NEVER buy slimline desktops, the power supply is going to cost more than the computer, being that it is a special type, you cant just buy it in a store, having to replace some myself, i can tell you that a decent used PC is around $150, and you can still put some of the hardware from the slimline into the used PC such as the hard drive, cd drive, and memory. Best of all, a full sized unit can be fixed relatively easily and for a lot less since most parts are interchangeable
