Default Laptop wont boot

Hey guys I got a Acer Aspire 5749Z-4148 that was dropped and now wont boot I just get a Msg no Boot device and it doesn`t seem to register in the BIOS

I thought it might be a loose connection but I can`t seem to get the case apart.

any Ideas how to get the case open on this model I would really appreciate it

Thanks

LOL thanks man I started to watch that Video about 10 times in my quest on google searches but this laptop has a one piece back , I almost can get into it but the ports want to come up with the bottom of the case and they are attached to the top of the case .

Yup that was the ticket, just had to giver a little bit more then I wanted to but it came apart.

Forgot I made this thread but it was a dead Hard drive now just waiting on a replacement drive..

I think the kid smashed it on the counter and shattered the Hdd plates , I can hear it spin and then crack and none of the WD utilities can access it .

Thanks for the help guys ..

Sounds like a ssd would be the best replacement.
