Acer extensa 5220 - how do I remove the hard disk?

I have this notebook & want to replace the hard disk with a bigger one, it came with an 80gb.

I've got the bottom plate with the 7 screws off & can see the hard disk, ram & fan but i can't see any way to remove the hard disk. It looks like it has a plastic thing to pull but it doesn't show any way for the disk to move back/forward/sideways - pls can anyone help as I need to get this done asap.

I've tried looking on the acer website but can't find any info on how to do this, I've also read another post on here abut a similar notebook but don't quite get the instructions.

Thanks for any help!

Checked if there is rubber behind the harddrive, that rubber is used for holding harddrive so it won't loose from motherboard.
If there is any, you can removed the rubber first. the rubber shape is like block.

I forget my bios password how can i remove it my laptop acer extensa 5220


The most common way is to remove the CMOS battery and leave it out for anything between 5 minutes to an hour then replace it and restart.
You will probably have to open up your laptop to get to the battery.
You may find some codes to put in but they very rarely work.

If you don't have disks, it may be possible that a factory default image can be restored from a hidden partition on the Extensa 5220 hard disk drive. On powering up, press the Alt key and the F10 key together (at the same time) repeatedly and after a minute or so you should start Acer eRecovery Management. Then, follow the on screen directions to restore the factory default image.

I can't find any driver support on acers web site for my extensa 5220 as it doesn't seem to be listed in their product drop down menu. Are their any sites that cater for this type of note book?


Hello there,
Here is the direct link to your drivers. Make sure you download the drivers for the operating system you are using (either xp or vista)

Enjoy!
