Question about HP Compaq Business Notebook NX9010
I have got a HP Compaq nx9010 notebook and I bought a replacement DVD drive.
I need some destrustions so I can pull the machine apart to remove and replace the drive.
I was hoping it was just 1 screw on the bottom but I am pretty sure that it must come apart to gain access to the drive screws.
Remove 2 screws on back of hinge covers, pry hinge cover, and button plate up and off to expose 4 screws that hold keyboard, remove these 4 screws lift keyboard, remove 2 screws retaining the DVD and slide it out.

You are correct.
The screws for the dvd drive is under the keyboard.
there should be 2 tabs one above the f4 and the other above f12 take a regular head screw driver put it where those tabs are and gently pull down towards the touchpad and the keyboard should come up easily.
Now under that keyboard in the center you will see a opening and inside that opening you will see 1 philip head screw remove that by turning counter clockwise.
Right below where you removed that screw you will see another opening which has another philps head screw in it.
Remove that screw counter clockwise and the dvd rom should pull straight out with ease.
To put it back together just reverse the steps.
If you need further assistance do not hesitate to ask.
