There are tabs that hold it in if I can remember correctly.

Look on the bottom of the case. It might help to flip it upside down.

Let me know if that works.

Best of luck!

How di i set my compaq presario sr1265cl to factory settings


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/

How do I remove front of case - I found the tab on the left side to unlock and have the top front cover off but need to remove the entire front of the case.


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!

How to remove HDD in compaq presario sr2030nx


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

How do I remove front cover on presario 5000


I would take the cover off then try and pop off the front from there. Don't be afraid to apply some serious force, that's what I had to do.

I can't remove cover to Compaq Presario to add memory.


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.

Replace CD-Rom Drive


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.

voice of experience. hope this helps
