I actually had to permorm this action yesterday.
First remove the small strip above the keyboard by unscrewing the three screws at the back of the machine that hold it; then twisting the screen al the way back and lifting it up.
Second unscrew the keyboard (2 screws) and lift it away (don't detach the cable).
Third: on the left side under the keyboard unscrew 3 screws that hold the cdrom in place.
Pull the drive out. The rest (taking the case of the dirve) should be transparent.
There is nothing on the bottom you have to unscrew!

    In my laptop (same model) these instructions work...but on the third step...there is only one screw under the keyboard (accessible via a hole) that, when removed, allows the dvd drive to slide out the side.

Sir turn your laptop around. just below your cd drive there will be a screw. remove the screw and pull out the previous drive. now fix the new dvd drive in the same place and fix it with the screw.

Hi, My Optical drive is not working in Acer Aspire 5633 wlmi laptop. So I have bought an external DVD drive and now I want to make that as default optical drive. How can I make it? BIOS is not allowing...


AS the new drive is a USB drive, you cannot make it default via the BIOS as the BIOS has no control over the USB device installed.
You can however configure Windows Backup/restore to default to the USB drive for the purposes of Backup and Restore.
Hope that helps.

My 5002 WlMi won't boot. All that happens when


Replacing a motherboard on a notebook is generally only recommended for professional technicians. As a last resort before trashing it, it might be doable for a resonably skilled person, but finding/buying the right motherboard is another matter.
Though, it might not be the case that it's the motherboard that's faulty.
If you can post a more detailed description of the problem, when it occurs, and if there are any life-signs at all (HDD-lights, screen, fans et.c.) it might help getting some answers.

Look for screws underneath the cd drive. After you remove them it should just slide out.
