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.
I want to change my cdplayer in my presario 700 for a dvd. Can't find a way to remove it.

1.start>control panel>all control panel items>AutoPlay change settings for each desired media 2.update the drivers for the DVD drive. search in all programs for the program name, go online and download the most recent driver 3. you may have mulitple programs that controll DVD/CDR reading ability. this will sometimes confuse/conflict the drive. try removing one using add /remove programs from the control panel.
Flip the laptop over to expose the bottom where the cd driver is, you should see a release button or screw, "someimes 2" remove screw and get a fine pin to insert in front tray hole, push in until you hear a click, pull tray out along wth the main drive unit.
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.
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.
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.
Hi there. Eject the CD tray and turn off the laptop, underneath the laptop you will find a screw that holds the CD/DVD in place, once you have removed the screw pull gently on the tray and it will slide out and you can install the new drive.
The top and bottom covers are also held together with plactic catches.
After you remove the battery, CD/DVD drive and hard drive etc.
start near an openning and gently pull apart the top and bottom cases, you should hear a click as a catch releases, then continue to work around the edge fron this point.
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.
