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

Is a compaq presario 5000/8000 quick restore cd compatible with a compaq presario 2175us laptop?


I guess not. Drivers for compaq presario 5000/8000, are not the same as those for a compaq presario 2175us laptop. Now, actually that "notebook" looks to me rather outdated. You won't lose anything by trying. Worst case, format hard drive and install Windows XP SP3. Try to search internet for missing drivers.

Compaq CD Drive


It appears that the CD drive has failed. My DVD drive did that and I ended up replacing it. They have become fairly inexpensive. You can replace your CD drive with a DVD/RW drive for about $30. I like to use www.spoofee.com to find cheap computer components. Just check back regularly and a DVD/RW drive should show up.
