Have hard drive failure and can't get case open... Any suggestions?
to reach the HDD you must unscrew the backpanel screws and slide off your DVD drive.
about HDD failure, if you received a message about "missing boot device", probably is a SATA cable issue and need to be replaced with part number 50.U86D5.002
by the way i suggest you to contact Acer support service if in warranty or a computer shop to have it serviced, replacing this cable is not the easy thing to do.
