There's many different cases out there which more than once, turned out to be the hardest part of the job. There may clips on both sides inside the case, right up against the opening of the expansion slot. Where the front of the new Rom Drive will be installed. If so then just push these in one at a time as you push out that end.
If thats not the case in your case, with your case (lol)Go to Google or DogPile and ask how to remove the slot cover on an Acer Case.
Good luck!

Can you replace the memory expansion slot in an acer 5315


Not easily Scarlett. You need a REAL computer tech to perform this, and there are very few of us left. (lol!)

May I suggest this?

I WILL REPAIR MY COMPUTER


Upgrade your RAM into 1GB or more, currently you are using 512MB which causes your system slowdown. On that model look for SoDIMM RAM with the DDR2 slot with 1GB or more. If you can see 2 memory slots, just buy additional RAM then put it on the blank slot.

I wanna replace the DVDreader/writer in my Acer Z5600 for a Bluray unit reader/writer can I do this myself because Acerservice in Holland don't wanna do this for me...


Looking at the image of the machine; the DVD drive is a vertically loaded slot.
replacing the DVD reader/writer with a Blue Ray one... not entirely sure if it's possible without advice from the manufacturer (contact them to be 100% sure).
because of the physical dimentions of the screen; the DVD drive will be a laptop dvd drive not a normal desktop one.... so you could hunt online for a slot loaded Blue ray drive for a laptop... but again no guarantee without manufacturers confirmation.
most machines past 2005 have SATA connections inside for the optical drives; but also confirm this before spending money.

Where do you put a disc to download a recovery management program


there are usb CD/DVD drives (CD/DVD drives that plug in via the usb slot) and they are usualy pretty inexpensive dependong on the brand. but make sure if you get one off ebay, craigslist, ect that it comes with the installation/driver cd

if it does not you can sometimes download the software.

hope this helps

Is this any graphic card available for aspire 5315?


No, your laptop has an integrated graphics controller and no slot to put a better one in there. That is typical for a laptop, most do not have slots for upgrading components like desktops do.
