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.

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

I need to install the cd/dvd drive on my acer aspire 5315 notebook

Drivers for acer computers:

Simply select your specific model and the required driver for the CD/DVD drive.

More information about what type of CD/DVD drive you have could also be useful for a better solution.

Another suggestion would be to temporarily remove the CD drive, this can often be done with one screw on the bottom of your laptop next to an imprint of a small CD.

This site also had some helpful information about your particular model, seems to be a common problem.

This of course is assuming you're still running the stock OS, and hardware on the machine.

Acer 5100 laptop dvd/cd player is broken,how do I remove it?

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.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Removal of cd/dvd tray from acer aspire 5051

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.
