Removal of cd/dvd tray from acer aspire 5051

Hi, Do I have to remove all the bottom panel to get at the cd tray or is there a simpler way to remove it ? Also the Acer Aspire 5051 is not listed on your list so I have chosen the 5100, I hope this will be ok to do this.
Thanks........John

    The screw is exactly where you said it should be, but there is no 'lock' symbol next to it. I will however undo this screw and try and prise the CD tray out.

    Thanks........John

Look on the bottom of your laptop on the side where your cd drive is. There will be a screw that is centered with the cd drive, about 6 inches in. It should have a "lock" symbol next to it. If you take that screw out, the cd drive will be allowed to slide out then. You might need a screw driver to help pry it out though.

How to remove cd/dvd drive on a acer aspire 5003WMLi


Turn the laptop over, on the bottom you will find a screw about 5-6 inches in from the cd-rom drive. The screw will have a little symbol of a CD next to it. If you remove this screw the cd-rom drive should slide right out. Be sure to do this with the laptop turned off, unplugged and with the battery removed.

Acer Aspire Am3470g case removal


I also have an Acer Aspire AM-3470G & just swapped DVD drives trying to troubleshoot a problem. Remove the one side panel with the finger tab that gives you access to the system board/HD's, etc. No need to remove the opposite side panel. With the panel off, there are 3 black plastic tabs holding the front cover on. Release them so that the front panel pivots to the opposite side which also has 3 black tabs. Those tabs will release themselves as you pivot the front cover. You may need a bit of force to pivot the cover so be careful not damage the plastic tabs. You'll now have complete access to the DVD tray area. The DVD is held in by 2 exposed screws, there are none on the opposite side of the drive. Unscrew them, disconnect the power & SATA connectors & slide out the drive. If you replace the DVD drive, test the new one before you reassemble all the covers to verify everything works.

Cannot remove dvdrw on acer aspire 5720z


If the button on the side of your laptop will not open the drive then you can try two things.

1. click start at the bottom left of your desktop (7 and vista will be a windows logo) then click computer. A list of hard drives and cd/dvd drives will show up. hover over the dvd drive with your mouse and right click. Then click eject, the tray should open.

2.Get a paper clip. located on your dvd drve cover is a small hole just big enough to fit a paper clip in. Push the paper clip in and pull it out it should pop open the drive.

You need to remove the CD/DVD drive from the laptop and then dismantle and remove the cover from this drive to get access to the disc.
After removing the disc, replace the cover and install the CD/DVD drive into your laptop.

Push a large paper clip or something similar into the little hole on the front of the CD close to the tray. Pushing it in will release the CD tray.

I have an Acer Aspire 5670 Note book Computer


There is a small hole on the face of the tray which is used to open the tray in this kind of situation. Use some needle and push into the hole. If the tray does not come out, you have to open the laptop and remove the tray.
