I have an ACER M3100 desktop. It is at the end of its life but I want to get the hard disc drive out. Could someone tell me very precisely how to proceed, perhaps with a photo or diagram of the layout? I haven't had occasion to dismount a desktop before.
Many thanks.

I've got it, many thanks. I needed the picture.
For the record: on my model, after the two screws are removed, you pull a spring latch marked "open" to release the side panel. For the HDD, no screws, you shift the green tabs left to the unlock position and the HDD comes out.

Thanks again.
