How do you install (or remove) a dvd drive on a ACER AM5630-U5202A desktop computer? I just need to know what has to be removed in order to do it. I can easily remove the side panel, but what is next? I emailed ACER and they were useless. Thanks.

    Thank you. Does the drive come out through the front panel? If so, does the front panel need to be removed?

There might be two/four screw both side one/two.

  • Then you have to remove IDE data cable from back of the DVD drive.
  • And Power supply, you may find it also at the back of DVD drive.
  • Some dirve uses another connection its also situated at the back.
  • All the above connection you can easily remove by hand. No need of any tools. Just pull-out firmaly it will be out.

If any problem just Ask me
Thanks

    No need to remove front panel. After removing all the connection just pull it outward. It will be out without any problem.



    Thanks

Have you checked the keyboards light? Is it lit? When you press on the CAPSLOCK button, does the light changes in the keyboard?

Try to unplug the hard drive, and DVD from the mobo and see if it goes well.

If no go, try removing the RAM sticks and see what's on the screen when you turn it on. Then put each part back one by one, checking the computer for any change or something like that.

Acer am5630-u5202a


I am not seeing any motherboards at the normal places I would look. How old is this computer? If it is less than a year, call Acer Tech support and they should repair it at no charge. As for sound card, it is built into the motherboard. If you have a PCI slot left open you could add a seperate sound card.

Hope this helps

If your DVD player cannot play some movie DVDs then the DVD disc may be from a region that is not compatible with the DVD player.

How to reomve a faulty CD/DVD drive from the Acer Aspire 5510 to enable replacement.


Hello
With a number of software manufacturers using DVDs to distribute their software releases, having a Acer Aspire 5510 DVD-ROM Drive is not only convenient but is practically essential to keep up with software releases. Unfortunately, if your laptop doesn't have a DVD drive, installing one isn't quite as simple as it would be if you were installing the drive into a desktop computer. This doesn't mean that installing a laptop DVD drive is difficult, provided you purchase one that is compatible with your laptop. 1. Check to ensure compatibility between your laptop and the Acer Aspire 5510 CD-RW Drive you purchase. The best ways to do this are to purchase your DVD drive directly from your laptop manufacturer, look for compatibility information on the drive's packaging or ask a knowledgeable sales associate. If buying online, make sure to read all of the drive's profile to check for compatibility information. 2. Remove the Acer Aspire 5510 DVD-ROM CD-RW Combo Drive that your laptop currently has. Flip the laptop over, setting it on a sturdy surface with the side that the existing drive is on facing you. Depending on how the laptop is designed, you should find 1-to-3 screws holding the drive in place; these screws may be on the bottom of the laptop or on the side next to the drive. Unscrew the screws and set them aside for later use. 3. Flip the laptop back over. Carefully remove the old drive, pulling gently yet firmly if you encounter resistance/ This will be the drive unplugging from the laptop's drive interface, so a small amount of resistance is not unusual. Once the drive is free of the laptop, set it aside. 4. Slide the new Acer Aspire 5510 Combo Drive into the empty drive port. Make sure that you press it all the way in so that the drive will plug in to the drive interface. Once the drive is in completely, replace the screws to secure the drive. 5. Boot up your laptop. Your operating system will detect new hardware and will load temporary drivers for the DVD drive; insert the driver disc that came with the drive to install the manufacturer's drivers in order to get optimal use out of your new Acer Aspire 5510 DVD-ROM CD-RW Combo Drive.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution Good Luck

Need to install second cd driver in desktop computer


It would be much simpler to remove your current CD-ROM drive, and install a CD/DVD-reader-writer combination drive.

1. Turn the computer off, and disconnect the AC power-cord.
2. Remove the side-panels from the case.
3. Disconnect the "power" and "data" cables from the back of the CD-ROM.
4. Remove the screws holding the current CD-ROM in position.
5. Slide the CD-ROM out the "front" of the case.
6. Slide the new device into place, until the face is "flush" with the front of the case.
7. Screw the device into position.
8. Connect the data and power cables.
9. Reconnect the AC power.

Windows will "find new hardware", and will adapt itself.

Memory type for the acer am5630-u5209a


Acer Aspire-Desktop AM5630-U5209a specs:
Memory Type-----DDR2
Memory Speed---PC2-4200, PC2-5300
Memory Type-----Non-ECC Non Registered
Memory Slots----2
Max Memory Per System--4096MB (4GB)
Max Memory Per Slot-------2048MB (2GB)

Tri-Channel Memory Support------Not Supported
Install Memory in Pairs--------------Not Required
also check your memory voltages by looking at the different memory voltage settings in your bios, write down the choices of the different voltages supplied by the motherboard for the memory.
Not all memory is created equal. for example, i purchased some high end gaming memory that matched my system specs only to find out it ran at a higher voltage than my motherboard would supply. Post again if you need more help ..

I need help! I'm a computer novice so please excuse my ignorance. I recently bought an Acer Aspire M1100 desktop (Acer Aspire AM1100-B1410A Refurbished AMD Desktop PC - AMD Athlon X2 4000 2 .1GHz, 2GB...


here is what you will need to complete this project:
  • Your new DVD burner with the included screws and cable.
  • A phillips screwdriver.
  • your new harddrive
  • Once you unpack the drive and find a screwdriver, you can finish the prep work by turning off and unplugging the power from your PC.
Installing Your Harddrive Step1 Open up your case after backing up any important files and locating and installing any software that came with the hard drive. Check to make sure that your computer supports SATA or that you have a SATA PCI card installed. Step2Look for the smaller connector on the SATA cable and connect it to the SATA connector located on the motherboard or controller card. If you already have another SATA drive, simply follow its cable to the motherboard or card to see where this one will attach. Step3Grab the larger end of the SATA cable and connect it to the back of the SATA drive itself. You will also need to attach the legacy 4-pin connector or SATA power cable to power your drive. At this point, check to see that both the smaller and larger end of the SATA cable and the power cable are securely connected and proceed. Step4Choose an available drive bay and insert the hard drive into it, mounting it in place with the four screws provided. Make sure to follow the directions that came with your drive and place the screws in the designated holes to secure proper grounding. Step5Ensure that all cables are properly attached and replace the tower or desktop case cover. After doing this, you're all set to reconnect the power cord and turn on your computer. Formatting and Partitioning Step1Boot from your Windows CD. If this is the only hard drive present, you'll be shown a series of instructions and should simply follow along. Step2Select "Control Panel" then "Performance and Maintenance" and finally "Administrative Tools" for an additional hard drive. Then click the "Computer Management option and choose "Disk Management." Simply right-click the drive to partition and format it. Step3Follow the steps displayed. Windows will guide you through the rest of the process. Now for your dvd drive---- 1.Shut down the system, unplug the power cord and remove the side panel or panels from the case. Ensure that the new DVD-ROM drive is set to be "Slave" or "Master," depending on if it is a replacement or an additional drive. 3 2.Locate the empty drive bay for the new DVD-ROM drive, and remove the drive bay covering. 4 Insert the new DVD-ROM drive into the empty bay and secure with screws or other attaching device provided by the manufacturer. 5 3.Connect the open connector on the ribbon cable (red stripe towards power cable) to the new DVD-ROM drive and connect the power supply cable (plastic four connector plug from power supply)to the drive. 6 Replace the side panel or panels, plug in the power cord and turn the system on. Install your dvd software bundle and get to work. These are actually two things you will want to do at once while the computer is open , but i would do them one at a time in case you have problems you will know what to blame. You can leave the cover off while operating the computer so that you can test it after the hard drive instrall and before the dvd install.
