Need to replace cd player in Compaq persrio 700 how do I do it? no screws in hinge covers?
Laptop off, remove the AC adapter, (Charger), if installed.
Remove the battery. Turn the laptop over so the bottom side is up.
Face the optical drive towards you. (CD drive)
See how there is a rectangular looking panel, on the bottom of the laptop? (Looking at the CD drive, the panel is over the CD drive. Bottom side of laptop)
See the single Philips head screw in the panel, towards the left corner?
Now take a paper clip, and bend it out straight. Make a small U-shape on the end of the straightened out paper clip, so you have something to hang onto.
On the drive tray that comes out of the CD drive, is a small hole. Insert the paper clip straight in.
This is a manual release to open the CD drive tray.
Gives you something to hang onto, to pull the CD drive out.
To install the new cd drive, (Player), just reverse these steps.
[Open drive tray. Slide CD drive in. Replace screw]
