Hi No but you do need to be forceful when removing the cover just place the palm of your hand on the side panel and slide the side panel towards you and that should release it

OK, but how do I take off the rest of the cover? I need to change out the DVD. I unscrewed the screws, but could not remove it. Is there a trick to pop the front plastic cover off, then maybe a screw behind that?

These systems sometimes have a cover lock inside connected to the bios which can lock the lids in place.

Nee to get the cover off my optiplex 745 desktop


Screws? I don't think that was necessary on an Optiplex GX745. If you face the front of the desktop then look at the back on top and you will see a latch to push and the cover pops open on one side.

See the photos below:

How do i remove the internal CD drive in my Acer Aspire RC500 ?


I assume you are talking about the cd drive into a desktop aspire ...The procedure is to remove the side cover and have access inside teh desktop ..(the left one ) ..after that locate the drive ,.,remove the power source cable and the ide controller...and after that it will have 2 screws on each side (repeat procedure by removing the other cover-right one ) ..and after all 4 screws are removed..the cd drive will slide out ..in forward ..(it is mounted on a slide )
For some desktops it will not be held in place with screws ..but it have a locking mechanism and you need to pull aside or back ...and it will unblock the drive and will slide out toward front side ..

"Flex the case in the middle and the undercarriage will drop out."
"Slide the front cover a couple inches left and remove screws, then
turn it around and lift the cover one inch to remove third screw."

How Do I remove the cover from a Gateway 500 series???


Like this Gateway SE?

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/2800071/280007101.shtml

On the back of the computer remove the screw from the top middle.
Now remove the screw on each outside edge, down towards the bottom.

Hold the outside shell, or computer cover. Push the inside forward.
The computer cover comes off like a shell, or bonnet.

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/2800050/280005003.shtml

If this is a reference to a Gateway 500X series, remove the thumb screw/s from the back of the computer, on the right side. (Right side as you are facing the back of the computer) Then slide this Side Panel towards the back of the computer.

Regards,
joecoolvette
