Hi

I own two of these laptops. and I do have a few service manuals that will help you but. before going to look for them.

Basically the drive is in most cases hold in place with 1 screw, this screw can be in the bottom of the notebook, around the dvd drive or under a cover, or on the other side below the keyboard.

cannot see how to remove - 9faaea1.jpg

If the screw is not in the bottom it will be on the other side inside the laptop and you will need to take atleast the keyboard off, maybe the top cover also.

    The answer told you EXACTLY what you need to do.

    Remove 1(one) screw from the bottom of the laptop as shown on the picture and push or pull the drive out.

    The middle screw holds the drive into place and thats all you have to remove

My acer aspire 5920 wont play blu rays anymore the driver is there and says its working but it shows only a cd drive on the devices even though it shows the dvd rom in properties


Best first step is to make sure that you have the most current driver from Acer. If you are unsure if it's current just doenload the one that is right for your operating system.
Either way re-install the drive! (YES, even if it said that everything is operating correctly).

Hi der! i own an acer aspire 5920 laptop.. for the past one week or two i dont know wat happened,my cd/dvd drive is not getting ejected out and i dont know where's the problem,whether in driver or the...


Get a paperclip and bend it out so its in one long pin, put that in the tiny hole on the front of the cd drive and move it gently forward and back, this should release the drive so it opens and hopefully its just a case of a cd jammed in there which will free it up once you remove it.
If not let me know and we'll look further :)

I placed a DVD in laptop and now I am unable to remove it as the drive won't open. I can't play the DVD and it appears the F drive has vanished. How can I eject the DVD without causing more damage?


The DVD will have a small hole near the eject button- about 2mm in diameter. Straighten a paperclip or similar and push into the hole until the disc drive mechanism releases and opens.

Crystal eye web cam not found on aspire 5920


Hi,

Acer aspire has inbuilt web camera and therefore will work only if the correct drivers are installed. Please uninstall the drivers first from control/panel/add remove programs. Next reboot the system and then go ahead with the installation.

Cant read dvd acer 5920


Take a damp q-tip and clean the laser of the dvd drive. Then after this try a few different dvd and normal cd's and see if the drive reads them at this point. If it reads them then problem solved. If not then you'll need a new dvd drive.

Acer Aspire 5920 DVD region locked!!!!!


Actually, the answer isn't nice at all. It's not the software, it's the drive itself. You can only change a drive's region 5 times before it is completely locked. I'm not sure if it's possible to flash the drive's bios and start from scratch, but I'd imagine if it were possible, you wouldn't want to do it yourself because it involved opening the drive itself. 
That sad thing about this is that you cannot change the code again, that disk drive is completely locked now. 
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. 
Caid.
