You will need to open up the side panel, and then remove the screws, or use the slider to open that..then the cd or dvd will slide out the front through the slot..you will need to disconnect the connection cable and power connector in back, before it releases.

ADD OPTICAL DRIVE TO GATEWAY FX6840


OK add one. All you do is take the old one out and put the new one in after you open the case and unplug the power cord. There might even be an open slot under or above the one that is already in the computer so just push the plastic covering that faces the front of the computer out so the new optical drive can go in it's place. By optical drive you are talking about a DvD or CD player, right?

How do I remove a cd-rom from a hp dv5


1) Work on a table.

2) Remove ALL power to the laptop. AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

3) Turn the laptop over Front facing you. There is one single Philips head screw to remove.
It's on the bottom of the laptop towards the Front, and is just past the Microphone, and Headphone jacks.

4) Screw removed use a paper clip to open the optical drive tray.
The paper clip is straightened out, then a third of it is bent into a handle to hang onto.

Looking at the optical drive with the laptop upside down, there is a small hole to the Left, on the optical drive tray. Insert the paper clip tool you just made into the hole.
This is a manual release to open the optical drive tray.

Hold onto the optical drive tray with your fingers, pull the optical drive out.

If you are going to replace the optical drive, be sure to remove the optical drive bracket from the back of the optical drive. (Two Philips screws) Install the bracket on the new optical drive.

Trying to take my cd drive out and put in a new one but the old one will not slide out and I do not see any screw that need to be removed


If it is a normal PC, there should be 2 screws on either side of the drive that have to be removed before the drive can come out. Many times you have to remove both sides of the computer case to get to these.

This can vary however from manufacturer to manufacturer. Some put the drives on what are called rails where, if you release the rail it will simply slide out, other times only one side has screws.

If it is a mass manufactured PC (DELL, Gateway, HP, etc.) you should be able to find a manual on their site that would help.
