Question about Computers & Internet
Hello there, I am working on a compaq presario 5151 desktop, that I am trying to change the cdrom drive in. I am unable to get to the 2 screws that are holding the drive into the bracket on the motherboard side. I need all the help anyone can give. Thanks in advance
Is that a 7000 series if so I'm looking at one right now ; looks like you might have to drill out the rivets they made these to use and not fix or get a user friendly case transfer over its easer $50. or so w/power supply

Hello again, Perhaps I should have stated that this system was bought back in the late 90's, and that I have already been to the compaq site, with no luck there, because the step-by-step guide you mention, shows a newer tower. This tower I am dealing with is a mini tower, and like I said before. I was able to get the 2 screws out on the side that is open when you remove the cover off of the tower, but I can not get to the 2 screws that are on the motherboard side. There are no holes on the side of the motherboard side, to even try to put a screwdriver thru there to remove these 2 screws. I know all this seems stupid, and trust me. I have been inside many towers, removed several drives, etc. and never before have I run across this. Perhaps it is because I have never owned a Compaq, and now by looking at this one, probably never will. So once again, thank you for help, but I still need further assistance.

Take off the other side panel and you should be able to get at the screws. Also, Compaq has a handy step-by step guide with animations to help. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07164&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=93108&lang=en
