Introdução

This guide shows the reader how to remove the back cover from their Acer Aspire R15 and replace the hard drive.

This laptop comes standard with a 1TB hard disk drive (HDD), but the user may want to take this opportunity to upgrade to a solid state drive (SSD). Although SSDs are somewhat pricier, they are faster, quieter, and less likely to fail than HDDs because they don't rely on moving parts to store data.

Before starting this guide, it is important to ensure the device is unplugged and powered off in order to avoid doing serious damage to the electronics.

Disconnect all power from the laptop and turn over so the bottom is facing you. Remove the twelve 07.mm Phillips #0 screws from the back cover.
