Hi BlaqueGhost.
Glad to hear you're all set.
I was just about to post when I saw your reply.
I have the full 116 page service manual (pdf) for it if you're interested.
Shows everything from complete dis-assembly to bios configurations, etc.
If you want it, just pm me with your e-mail addy and i'll send it to you.
It's around 9mb in size.

Hello HitSquad. I just sent you a PM requesting the ACER9410Z service manual.
I need to replace my optical drive and could sure use some help. Thanks ahead of time!

Hello all. I just joined the forum yesterday. I need some help in replacing an ACER9410Z optical drive that is acting up.
Can anyone tell me the procedure for removing the device?
Does anyone know if it is an IDE device or a serial ATA type?

I am hoping that a device like this one will work:

Gravy. Should be retained with a single screw. Some lappys have an adapter that slides over the pins of the drive to adapt it to the motherboard so dont let that throw you. Look under device manager to find out what drive is in there now, that will tell you IDE or SATA.

Replacing the optical drive in a laptop usually involves removing one retaining screw on the bottom of the laptop and sliding the unit out
You might have to stick the screwdriver into the screwhole and give it a push

EDIT: combined posts
