Re: need to replace a cosmetic part on an acer aspire...

In order to assist in locating the part, need to know the model of your laptop... Aspire, Ferrari, Travelmate and the model number.

Also, would help if you can provide the DVD drives part number as well. Then I can see if I can run one down for you.

I found some face plates allready for the tray loaded drives on acers, but the for the slot loaded ones, I need that info.

Surely to load XP is a DownGrade. As this notebook is dual core, I would run Vista 64 or better still Windows 7 64.
If you wish to persist with an old system, you require SP3 for XP.That may be available from a software store but is no longer supported by Windows.
Try for drivers that you will require to have support from Acer.

Hope that clarifies your situation.

Acer 5100 laptop dvd/cd player is broken,how do I remove it?

Remove the access cover on the bottom of the case that houses the heatsink, wireless card and RAM memory. No components have to be removed to remove the cd drive. Now look at the cd bezel and then back toward where the RAM memory is installed in thier slots. There is a screw marked by a circle with what looks like a wedge taken out. This is the holding screw for the cd player. Once you remove this screw, there is agap next to the screw hole that you can stick the screwdriver in and push the cd player part way out of the case. Once you do that, grip the front of the drive and pull it free of the case. Refer to page 60 of the service manual I have included the link for below. Make sure you have a PDF file reader like Adobe or Fox-It Reader.

Memory module

There is a cover on the bottom of the machine that the memory is under. If there is only one slot under this cover, then the other slot will be under the keyboard. There are two memory slots on this machine, and it will hold up to 4g of memory.

Cd drive 3inch?

It seems that even though this is a slot-loaded DVD/CD-R drive that you can still eject manually by a button; the manual does not say it can take the smaller CDs but, it would seem odd that it would not.
