Question about Compaq Presario S4020WM PC Desktop

Opening a Compaq Presario S4020WM side panel

I'm trying to open my sister's Compaq Presario S4020WM to replace the cd player. I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it open. I can see that it needs to slide toward the back, but I can't budge it. There is a plastic screw that looked to be holding it in place, but when I unscrew it, it doesn't help. I've opened every computer I've ever owned (Gateway, Dell) but this one has me stumped as to how to do it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

you mean the internal power supply? that's available for around 20 bucks anywhere online..usually called a PCXT power supply..big issue is finding one that's identical with connectors..

take yours out, and then maybe there will be a part number or maker on the label.

It actually sounds like you might have a hardware problem. If you're comfortable with opening the computer, remove any recently added hardware. If no hardware was added, then it may be necessary to remove each of the components in the following order and retest the boot process until it functions, and replace the last part removed.

Pressing F8 and/or reading the CDROM that early in the BOOT sequence is not possible, so it's in a hardware check.

Floppy, CDROM, SoundCard, Network Card, <any other cards>, extra RAM, except one or two to be able to boot.

It is also possible that either internally or externally, a cable may be loose. If you are able reseat all the cables, this may make it work. Stuff can come loose and the computer freaks out.

Lastly, if you feel like making sure that component is the problem, start plugging all pieces back in and all may work. This would mean that something was loose.

Computer very very slow


This problem is probably because your system is infected with spyware,adware or some kind of malware..
Download an anti-spyware software like Spybot Serach & Destroy(Its free and awesome!)Scan your PC and remove all infections and it will be fine!
