    Is there a hole to insert a paper clip to open this?

  • djm5657 Sep 05, 2010

    I don't know where the cover is.

  • djm5657 Sep 06, 2010

    Does the laptop have to be on because I am having problems that necessitate a reinstall from this drive which is why I need to open it and it currently won't go past the error code (black screen).Thank you. Your answer is best, by the way.

    Right to the point without all the unnecessary tech stuff. My laptop is up and running with a new OS thanks to you.

Hi. Instead of opening the computer try to push the cover to the dvd rom drive until it snaps in. Apply a little pressure to the cover until it snaps to the base of the dvd rom. if nothing happens then i guess you need to open the tower and take out the dvd rom and and unscrew the screws of the dvdrom and check the lathc at the end of the dvdrom and look for the railings for the dvd cover then slide the face cover to the railings.

    Hi. there is no way that the cover will dropped inside the computer. Cover might have been dropped somewhere at your desk. If the computer is still under warranty, you can call the computer manufacturer and have the DVD Rom drive replaced.

If you want to open your laptop and get inside of it you can follow these steps on how to do that.

1.Disconnect your laptop from its power source and remove the battery.
2.Flip your laptop upside down so the base faces up.
3.Remove the captive screw from the hard drive compartment located at the front end of the base if you want to upgrade your hard drive. Lift off the panel to expose the laptop's integrated drive.
4.Remove the four screws holding down the large panel on the right side if you want to upgrade your memory. Lift the panel with your finger by levering it against the groove near your memory. Acer Aspire 5315 notebooks have the CPU and other components besides the memory all in one panel, so proceed with caution when opening this panel.
