The colored front piece snaps off. Take a screw driver and carefully pry it. Snaps are at the top, around the drive bays, and at the botton. It would be easier to unscrew the case around the PC first. Make sure you unplug the PC first.

I am assuming you bought a new flashy colored replacement? If you are looking to get inside the PC then you unscrew the 2 screws on the back right, or right and left side, they will look different then the other screws, and slide off the case.

How do I remove the CD/DVD drive from this computer? The layout inside is different from many desktops.


just pop off the colored plate and the clips are on the side. the drive will slide right out.
(1) take off the left side cover, (2) near the front, at the bottom of the internal drive cage is a plastic lever, flip it down, (3) now open the front plastic CD holder cover (the bottom gray plastic thing), (4) there are two finger holes at the bottom of the top plastic cover - pull the top cover loose (note if you're scared to put a lot of pressure on it, you can use a small flat screwdriver through those holes to lift back the two tabs holding the cover on), (5) with the top cover off, pinch in the two plastic tabs on the side of the drive you want and pull it forward (note disconnect the IDE cable (and audio if there is one) before pulling the drive too far out), (6) pull off the two side rails from the old drive (they just push in and pull out) - but note which rail comes off which side (I'm not sure if they can be inserted upside down or not, so just keep track of which one goes on which side), (7) push the side rails onto the new drive (note you have to really push hard on the metal part of the rail to seat it properly - you'll know it's not seated if the drive doesn't slip in easily), (8) slip in the new drive & connect the IDE and power (and audio if there is one)cables (9) install the top plastic frame, flip up the lock inside the case, then close the bottom CD cover thing, (10) enjoy the new drive. hope this helps you and please vote for me

How do I get the DVD out of my s3100n slimline pavilion HP in order to install add'l ram


Most slimeline cases have DVD that remove from the front. That is you will have to remove the front plate of the computer to slide the DVD out. Close to the inside corners on the front usually are compression fit plugs that snap into place, ocassionaly screws but not often. Take your time and slowly push them outwards once you have all of them loose on one side you can gently rock the front back and forth until the other side dislodges.

It is important to not use excessive force or you could break the pins in which case you will need to have some glue handy.

HP Smart Cover Removal


There are two indented "spots" on the sides of the cover near the front. Push those in and the tabs should pop out. Then slide the cover about 1-2 inches forward and then it should lift up.

Front cover removal


There are tabs that hold it in if I can remember correctly.

Look on the bottom of the case. It might help to flip it upside down.

Let me know if that works.

Best of luck!

You should find screws clips, or both on the back side of the front section. Sometimes you need to push it off from the back. HP can be complicated sometimes.
