Question about Acer Aspire 5003WLMi Notebook
I'm in the middle of replacing my defective DVD burner in my Acer Aspire 5003WLMi laptop, but I can't for the life of me get the optical drive out. Does anyone have any information on how to remove the defective drive? Thanks to all who can help :)
Found that acer optical drive removal require removal of key board , there is a screw located there that releases the drive when then pulls out easily.

Hi chris, best thing is to get hold of a manual but since NEC's support is not that good they don't provide them on their websites for download. but not to worry, generally you got 2 options from my experience i can confirm that the first one is the old drive is secured with a screw located in the back of the laptop underneath the drive itself if that's the case just unscrew it and release the old drive , the other option is you might need to strip the laptop down and unscrew the drive from inside the laptop i guarantee you these are the only ways manufacturers secure optical drives to laptops. hope this helps
