Hi, I can help you with this. Are you trying to remove the cd-rom drive bay plate or the front panel of the tower?

    Which one?

    I'm aware of that, but faceplate can refer to more than one part on a computer. Are you trying to remove the front panel?

Remove two screws and open the computer metal side cover. Inside near the front there is a plastic lock tab which unlocks the upper half front panel. This allows access to easily remove cd or floppy drives.

How do i re install windows xp on my compaq presario 5000


If you place your XP OS disc in the DVD/CD drive and boot from it, let the OS disc format your hard drive and there you are, when it has finished, all done. XP on your hard drive.
All you have to do then is try and find the drivers you need. Good luck as XP is no longer supported.

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

My Compaq Presario PC's cd/dvd drive doesn't work. It won't show on the computer.


Hello there:
Some times drivers act like old people they tend to forget things they are supposed to be doing this happnes a lot to cd rom and dvd drives
so what you can do isto go to device manager and scroll down the list and you will see your cd/dvd rom now just highlight it and right click on it and select uninstall and click next or ok than confirm the removal of the device and after this is completed just reboot the computer and once the computer has fully booted you will see on the task bar found new hard ware and it will reinstall all of the drivers for your device and it will notify you of when the device is ready top be used ok?
I hope that this is very helpful for you.
best regards michael

Can figure out how to remove the cd drive from the actual case


I work at a computer repair shop and I have had a similiar problem with the new compaqs, but the solution is simple. take the side cover off, look in the front of the machine right in the corner where the front bezel and the metal frame meet. There are little plastic tabs on the top and bottom corner. You need to push those tabs either toward you or away from you(depending on model). While those tabs are moved, pull gently on the front bezel. After the bezel is removed, you should be able to remove the drives by taking out the screws and pulling the drives out the front of the case. Hope this helps

Please help


First check to see if you have an IIS connection. To do this you must go to start menu>add or remove programs>add/remove windows components>internet information services (IIS). If its not checked then check mark the box and press next. Another might be that its working offline which is located in the tools menu. If you can get the hp site for compaq then download the network driver into a flash drive or cd then your in luck because you can install it in the compaq. Here's a link hope it helps good luck http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=93214&lang=en

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
