Tom&Jerry & Dr Scott, Thanks for your interest but I am unable to get any help from acer. The only document that I can find will not download to my dial up. I have tried to get my laptop apart but it would not open even though I am sure that I have all the screws out. I have built my last three comps, myself and feel quite able to change the drive if only I can get to it.
Tpp many imponerables to be spacific but have you taken the battery out? The drives sometimes lurkes under there. cenrtaily thare are screws inside like under battery or other removable covers aprt from thos under the feet. Its all done to trick you.
