This instructable shows, how to change the DVD-drive of an Acer Aspire 1690 (and potentially other Acers). The pictures are low-res, but should still be helpful in finding the correct screws.

Step 1: Remove all power

Unplug the power and remove the battery.
Very good! Quite simple, I'll try it in few minutes. Many thanks!
Perfect!!! I've done all in five minutes. Derek
Very useful thanks. And I have to admit, the last place I expected to come across such information :p
on my ibm thinkpad the drive pops out without removing a single screw because there is a floppy drive that you can plug into the same slot as the cd drive,the slot looks like a room with no drive installed so it is very simple
Here's another site explaining the necessary steps:<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/portal20.cfm?recordid=882&formid=3390&website=AcerPanAm.com&siteid=7117&words=all&keywords=&areaid=2">acerpanam</a><br/>
