Most newer desktops only need one of the side panels removed to access the motherboard and drives. The front panel is usually held in place with screws that are tightened from within the case and are only removed if you have panel damage. If you remove the wrong side panel, you will run into a metal panel that is part of the case frame. Hope this helps!
After removing the side cover, you will notice 4 black tabs behind the front bezel under the hard drive, bend these back just enough to let the front cover release at the bottom, then press the green square at the top to release the front plastic bezel. After you carefully pull the front off, you will need to remove the cables [power and IDE] pull up on the green tab that locks the guide screw on the hard drive and push it forward out of the case
Turn the computer around so you are looking at the back. There is a white plastic latch on the right side near the top. Press the latch down and slide the right side (actually the machine's left, but you're looking at it from behind, remember?) panel back toward you. Then you can lift it off the machine. There may be a screw in the top of the panel above the latch, so check for that if the panel won't slide. Compaq doesn't put that screw in at the factory, but someone else may have. Once the side cover is off you will have clear access to the system board.
first you have to remove both sides from the computer case the screws are on the back of the computer then pull to the back each side cover and in the back of your front panel inside the computer there are some like plastic clips attached to the metal case open them and push the plastic front cover tours to the front each time you do the un clip ones the front is remove there is like an other little case that is holding the cd-rom and it has a screw remove the screw and pull it tours to the front it will slide out with no problem remove the screws from the side of cd-rom and pull it out to replace for other one just follow the directions backwards fixya rate
solution: open front blue magnetic case door, look on either side of the power button, there are finger holes in the other blue cover.
lift out from bottom to top. this cover comes off, not the whole
case. inside find tabs next to cd drive, squeeze and pull out. note: the side sliders were they come out, they will come off the
cd drive when removed. it is easier to replace the top drive by removing the bottom drive, put in the top half way, then put bottom back in half way and slide them in together.
