1. To remove drive you only need to remove small plastic door with fine flat screw driver under small **** towards the front of console then undo blue screw and slide drive towards front of console and pull straight out. Be careful not to press on any of the drive's surfaces especially where the label is as head or platter will be damaged!

2. To dismantle the rest of the console, remove sticker on left side of console, remove rubber plug/ foot, undo tamper proof screw with correcy T15 star driver, and slide false plastic cover towards you. Then you have several philips head screws all marked with arrows to undo after which the top can be removed straight up. When removing or disturbing the optical drive be careful not to damage the heat transfer pad under the drive as the electronics of the drive will then overheat. The rest should be easy!
Good luck!

Need directions/advice on dismantling suncast 10x10 shed model A0

You can dismantle this thing, you can also have it moved on a flat bed wrecker, how far are you going? I would try to get it apart panel by panel, not piece by piece, but wall by wall. It might be possible, but when it goes back together, you might need some new fasteners and brackets here and there. And yes, it is worth it. Hope this helps.

Dismantle instructions

you will find it hard to obtain dismantle instuctions for any laptop, dismantling laptops is mostly trial and error and takes carefull planning.
the best way to dismantle a laptop is draw a diagram as you take it appart, this is beacuse the amount of screws so you have to take notes pertaining to where they came from aswell as other hardware like mini-pci cards etc.

good luck with your project

CD & SD Card stuck in Asus Pro31F notebook

gant really help on the sd usually push in to insert and push in again to remove.
cant imagine how you can get cd stuck between rom and chassis.anyway if you look closely at your rom you will see a small push a thin piece of wire into this to eject the rom hopefully giving you more room to play with and remove disk.a paperclip made straight is an ideal tool for this.
as for repair;tell me your model and i'll check to see if I have it
I have nearly all hp service repair manuals,some toshiba and ibm

I htink the easies way would be to get the keyboard out. Have you been able to do so? There might be some small "sliders" with holes in them between the keys around the edge of the keyboard. Put a paperclip in the hole and slide the "locking bolt" towards the middle of the keyboard (only a mm or two) to loosen it.
