Default How to remove Laptop CD Drive???

I have an Acer Extensa 2355XC laptop and my CD drive isn't working, i want to take it out but don't know how.

Does anyone know how to take it out, is there a switch or a button or something?


Any help would be appreciated.

There's a screw securing the drive to the chassis of the laptop on the under plastic. Locate it, remove it, and gently wiggle/pull the cd drive from the chassis.
