Question Acer Aspire Hard drive change

I have been trying to open up my Acer Aspire Net book model NAV70 in the AOD260 Series. with a view to changing the hard drive, now "Clonking" and having a partly corrupted Win 10 program.
I have removed the battery as various notes suggest. I now have seven very small Phillips screws 2 pairs of two at the hinge end, two more at the other two corners and one the centre between these two. I thought I would have been able to open it up to see the hard drive, but I cannot do so but I cannot find any other screws. On the bottom are four rubber grommets. Two of these are in the battery casing but the other two are at the far end. If pulled out these may house two more screws, but it seems impossible to pull them out.

Can you help and guide me at all


Thanks again Eric

Default Re: Acer Aspire Hard drive change

I recently changed the HDD in my old Acer Aspire 5536 for a new SSD and installed Linux (Mint) on it, which I am using to write this....Clearly it isn't the same model as yours but, on mine, once having removed the five upper screws, the drive cradle slides out revealing two screws on each side of it. Once removed the drive drops out.

This any good? It says its for a PAV 70 rather than a NAV 70 though.
