I just received my Aspire E5-575G Signature Edition. So far it's great but I bought a 2nd HDD to add. I read reviews saying it has a 2nd empty bay just for that as well as an extra memory slot (I bought another 8 GB stick for that).


I have look online and every video I see saying they are working on the model I have looks very different from the one I own. There is no removable battery on the bottom. It does have an access panel with 3 screws and vents ports on this panel right under the touch-pad. There is a notch on one corner at the top right of the panel but when I removed the screws this thing does not want to budge at all. I don't want to force anything. I am really frustrated though at the lack of ease for this simple upgrade task.


Does ANYONE have this same laptop, know how to access/remove this panel safely or know where I can find hard info that shows if these empty ports/slots/bays do for sure exist?


Thank you!
 
Well if you just got the device, then you really should consider not doing this work yourself. Why? Because you don't want to void your warranty. They do come in handy sometimes.

Also, the information you have given is lacking a bit, making the models information hard to locate. There should be other numbers and letters after the 757G in the model name. You might want to search for the manual for the device here ... http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers ... And see if it actually has the options you were told it does. If not, then you need to contact where you purchased it about this issue.
