    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!

    I've read of people doing that but one of the features I bought the laptop for is that it has a DVD Multi, I use it.

    I want to access the memory and hdd bay. It's really ticking me off that this is not just a quick 2 minute upgrade as it should be and is with other laptops.
