The DVD drive has to come out the front of the tower. To remove the front panel there are 4 snap tabs that allow you to pull the front panel off. There is a sequence to this. First you have to remove the media bay by pushing the black tab on it and sliding the bay free. Next comes the HD, raise the snap bar and removing the one screw securing it right beside the snap clip. Unplug the connector labeled P3 and the HD will slide straight out. Now you can access the snap tabs for the front panel. Once the panel is off there is one black screw just above the HD bay that needs to be removed. Disconnect the 2 cables from the DVD drive. On the opposite side of the DVD drive theres a tab that you need to push outward and the DVD will slide out the front.

You may have to open the other side of the case to get to the screw.

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.

DVD/CD rom drive issues


Hi, it appears that CDW/DVDROM is only detected in BIOS but in normal windows. This is a known issue from Microsoft eventhough you are using Windows Xp or Vista the CDW/DVDROM is not detected and does not appear in My computer icon. This can be easily fixed by a registry tweaks.

Please click on this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us and then delete the upper/lowerfilters which is blocking the CDW/DVDROM to appear on your windows.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks
