Question about Acer Aspire 7720 Notebook
I'd like to replace the 160gb SATA 5400rpm drive in my Acer Aspire 7720 laptop with a 7200rpm 250gb or larger drive. The hard seems to be bracketed and is not a simple "pull and remove" procedure. Any detailed help would be appreciated !!!
Figured this out...
1) Flip laptop over, keep front of laptop closest to you and hinges away from you 2) Remove cover with cylinder/harddrive icon (2 screws) 3) Remove small single silver screw near the front (close to you) of the laptop in the center of the metal harddrive caddy (the caddy may hold one or two hard drives) 4) Pull the plastic tab on the left toward the outside of the laptop... the whole caddy with harddrive(s) inside will shift to the left, disconnecting it from the motherboard and lining up the caddy for removal. 5) Lift the entire bracket straight up
To remove the primary harddrive (the only one present in my model) you must remove the blue L-shaped circuit board from the caddy. 1) Flip the caddy over 2) Remove the three screws with slightly larger head diameters around the perimiter of the caddy 3) Push/slide/jiggle the circuit board so the sata connectors release from the hard drive(s). 4) Unscrew the hard drive from the caddy

I believe that the bracket you refer to, is actually the hard drive caddy. Most have a caddy of some sort, and some have it to where the caddy is held by two or four screws. once you remove the scews holding the caddy, the caddy and hard drive will slide out of the connector, and lift out. Then you will need to remove the screws holding the hard drive in the caddy, again, either two or four screws.
