Unscrew a green large knob screw in the back, then the cover of the case should slide backwards. It will be tight because it fits snugly into place, but just push backwards and it will break free and reveal the insides to you.

SOURCE: floppy disk is stuck

Unless you feel like becoming MacGuiver for a few minutes, my suggestion is to order a new floppy from Many to choose from, including card readers, and they're all dirt cheap.

If you do feel like roll playing as Richard Dean Anderson, here's what you'll need to do:

- Remove the floppy drive from the case after shut down and unplug.

- Remove the floppy face-plate to gain access to the front-side internal mechanics.

- There may be a broken rivet connecting the button to lever or a broken spring... anything that's out of place and just hanging or floating about.

- If you can identify the broken or loose part, you may now become MacGuiver and attempt to 'fix' the problem by whatever means you can think of.

Uhm... it's 2009. Why are you still using floppy's? Not to be rude or anything, but 3.5's went obsolete when the SD card came. My opinion is: get rid of the floppy drive. It's useless. There's a card reader that will fit in the slot and a wide variaty of cards that hold far more data and more securely than the ole 3.5.

If the drive is trashed, just force the drawer open. If you don't want to do that, you should be able to disassemble the drive enough to get the disk out by removing screws... Sometimes the screws are underneath stickers, or warranty stickers, etc etc.

You should be able to replace the floppy drive from within the computer case. Open the case be removing one side, unplug the ribbon cable connecting the floppy drive to the motherboard and the power cable connecting it to the power supply, and slide out the floppy drive. There may be screws holding it in place that need loosened first.

How do you take apart a gateway zx4800-06 all in one computer to put a new hard drive in. I took the case screws off but the cover won't budge and I don't want to take a chance of damaging...

You don't need to take apart all the back cover. Only the small rectangule part where the back support is located. The hard drive is located under the small cover.

Disc rom wont open at all and the manual button isnt visible to open it

Most disk drives have a small hole that you can shove a bent paper clip into in order to manually open the drive, which could at least help you recover whatever disk you have in the drive, and may even fix the problem if the drive got jammed. Some computer cases cover up the front of your drive however, so you may need to open up the case to get at the drive.

Help my dvd drive is stuck and wont open

Desktop or Laptop computer wasn't stated.

With most desktop computer optical drive's there is a tiny hole located right under the optical drive tray.
(The tray the disk is inserted in)
A paper clip is straightened out, then inserted into the hole.
This is a manual override, and will open the tray.

There are some desktop computer optical drives, that the computer case has a door that flips down, then the optical drive tray comes out.
The door must be eased down far enough to see if the optical drive has the small hole.

With a laptop computer the optical drive is removed from the laptop.

Generally there is one small Philips head screw that is removed from the bottom side of the laptop, then the optical drive tray is opened with the paper clip, and the optical drive is then removed by using the tray as a handle.
The optical drive is then pulled straight out.

Once out the top cover is removed for access to the disk.

If this information is not what you seek, or you would like it explained, please post in a Comment, and we'll work together on finding a solution.

HP 8570 C Medalion hard disk removal

The side panel of the case should be removable to gain access to the screws. I have also seen versions that the card cage itself is on a hinge, and swings out of the case (with the removal of a few screws) that then gives access to the drive screws.
