Actually since the Acer Extensa is more of a home use computer, it is not quiet as simple as working on business laptops. With the Extensa you have to remove the large panel on the bottom of the laptop that is held by 7 screws. The panel has 4 sets of vents in it and a 1 inch square rubber foot in the center. The screws do not completely come out as they appear to be fastened to the panel. Once you have loosed all 7 screws, there is a small place to insert your finger nail on the side close to the Windows Vista Certificate sticker. Just lift up on the panel easily as there are plastic tabs holding the panel still. Once you remove the panel, there is is only two screws holding the hard drive in place. Remove the two screws and slide the hard drive toward the back of the laptop. Done.
