I just worked on one. You have to make sure the buttons on each side are fully pushed in, then grab onto it and pull forwards while kind of shaking it. It came off straight upwards. Hope it works for you. Good luck. I don't think it had the option to add another drive but I wasn't looking so I could be mistaken.

Cannot open CPU Case for replacing Hard disk with


Every case is different, and I particularly do not know yours. In most cases, besides a couple of holes for a physical lock on the case, there's a BIOS option that allows you to LOCK the case electronically. Find the key that gives you access to the BIOS upon boot (usually F2, F10, etc) and press it. The option you're looking for should be under a menu item that sounds like System Security. Find the one that reads something like "Intrusion Detection", and disable it. Make sure you save the change prior to rebooting.
Good luck!

Compaq evo need ethrnet drivers intels drivers dont work


I have the same? machine (model D510S) and can be tricky to track down drivers. I can probably locate them for you and give you the link if you provide your model no. (should be on case near the front).

CD/DVD drive for Compaq Evo D500 Ultra-slim Desktop


Salesman is right. It's built slim for space, not efficiency. It was built for those with tiny rooms.
Sad thing is, buying hard drives etc. for laptops cost a lil more.

if you wanna open whole case then:

Turn the notebook upside-down.
* Remove the 3 Torx T-8 screws located towards the front of the computer.
* Turn the notebook right-side-up.
* Lift the LCD to its upright position.
* Carefully lift up the palmrest making sure not to tug on the mouse's ribbon cable and let it rest on the keyboard. WARNING! If you tug on the cable you will disconnect the mouse and it is NOT EASY to reconnect!
* Remove the 4 Torx T-8 screws that mount the hard drive in place.
* Gently lift the hard drive up a few inches and remove the ribbon cable attached to the hard drive.
* Remove the 4 Torx T-8 screws that mount the hard drive to its bracket.
* Remove the hard drive from its bracket.
* Place the new hard drive into the bracket.

* Attach the hard drive ribbon cable to your new hard drive.
