Re: Replacing DVD drive on Acer Travelmate 2428

There are two screws that hold the CD/DVD drive in place on a laptop. I'm not familiar with your particular model but these screws are sometimes located on the bottom of the case and marked as such, others have them located under the keyboard. If you don't see them on the case bottom, look in your owners manual and see if it describes how to lift the keyboard. I don't recommend you try removing the keyboard without some clear instructions to follow as its real easy to break something on a laptop if you don't know what your doing.

I have a Acer TravelMate 5720 Notebook and I need to remove the CD/DVD rom . How do I do that ?

there should be just one screw directly behind the dvd drive in the centre of it. you might have to remove the cover for the memory/cpu to get to it. remove that screw, start the laptop, eject the dvd, turn the laptop off and then gently pull the whole drive and it will slide out.

Replacing HDD Acer Travelmate 244

First, you must remove the battery by pushing the battery release latch and sliding the battery out from the machine.

The hard drive will be located behind where the battery was, and you should be able to just carefully slide it out. Then you have to remove the hard drive from its holder by removing 2 screws.

Go to pages 52 and 55 on this document for complete instructions.

Remove cd/dvd drive acer travelmate 2310

I'm not an expert on Acer, but I can tell you that *most* CD/DVD drives just "pull" out with a little bit of oomph applied. It's just a plastic connector on the other end of the drive that connects to the motherboard inside.

Eject the drive tray, and *GENTLY* pull out with a slight bit of pressure. If you feel your muscles tensing up, you are pulling too hard and perhaps there is a hidden screw - generally, though, if there is a screw, it's in plain sight on the bottom of the case (and obviously should be removed first!)

Hope this helps - remember to rate! :)
