How do I remove the cover off a Pavilion 20 All In One computer?

YOU don't. They made it so the owner has to take it to a shop for repairs. I've an ASUS the same way. Try as I will, there's no taking it apart to replace hard drive.

Stuck mother board hp pavilion 764c

Check to see if the ports themselves are screwed to the back panel of the case. I don't know about your specific model but usually if you get all the screws it should lift out no problem. Also, you should not need to remove any motherboard components to get at these screws, they should all be visible.

There should be at least 4 more larger screws, maybe even "thumb screws", that will have to be removed as well. These screws hold the sides of the case on. Try removing those and sliding the sides back to open up the case

How do you remove bad hard drive. Seems some screws are hidden.

They're not really hidden, they're just on the other side probably, which means you'll have to take the cover off the other side of the tower to get to it.
