Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5004WLMi Notebook ?

Cd drive is there a trick to pulling the cd drive out on a aspire 5004wlmi


Answers :

Yes, I have done this.
\015\012Step 1: With the laptop closed, unplug the power cord. Remove the battery by pushing open the 2 little locks on the bottom of the unit.
\015\012Step 2: Unscrew the three screws in a single row across the back of the unit. They are on the same plain as the serial port connector. These are the screws that hold down the on/off switch plate. Save the 3 screws in a container.
\015\012Step 3: Now, with the laptop (upright and opened) on a table slowly and carefully lift off the switch plate, located between the keyboard and the screen. Be very careful because it has tabs on it that can be broken. Slowly and carefully work the plate loose and remove it.
\015\012Step 4: Remove the two screws that hold down the keyboard and carefully, slowly lift the keyboard. Save the screws in a seperate container. There is a ribbon connector under the keyboard connecting it to the motherboard. Don't stretch it tight and don't disconnect it. Loosen and remove the screw in the middle of the keyboard recess under the keyboard.
\015\012Step 5: With that screw removed you will be able to slide out the cd drive. If it hangs up part way out, jiggle the battery lock next to it and gently pull it the rest of the way out.
