It will have to be bent until the metal gives. It is like those old toys that come in the grid that you have to bend and snap off.

How do I insert CD in computer? It doesn"t seem to have an open slot.


If there is no "Open" button for the drive then normally they are opened by pushing on the DVD/CD tray itself momentarily. It only needs a short positive push and the drive tray should slide out.

Pc doesn't boot stops at set up


Your computer is having some problems at POST. Try removing one of the memory dimms you have installed. In case you have one leave it like that and remove Hard Drives, optical drives, any usb devices on the back and try again. In case it boots start attaching the hard drive and try again.. if it boots, add the optical drive and so on until you get the failure.
I hope this helps.

Replace the optical drive on Acer Aspire m1201


based on the images i've looked on for the Aspire m1201, you don't need to remove the front panel in order to remove the optical drive. if there are screws holding the drive in, remove them and then slide the drive forward. if its held in by sliding latches and not screws, then slide then in which ever direction necessary and then push the drive forward to take it out.

Removing the dvd drive


Occasionally, the front bezel (plastic decorative front panel) of the computer has to be removed (it is usually held in place by clips) for the optical/5.25" devices to be removed. Also check to see that the IDE/SATA cable, audio and power leads have been disconnected from the rear of the device.
