Compal manufactured this computer and it was sold under many different manufacturers names.
To remove optical drive: Extract the two screws in the base that obviously attach to the drive. Remove cover from memory, roughly in centre of base, and you will see a screw that secures the drive. Remove the screw and the drive will slide out. Remove the bracket on rear of drive, attach to new drive and reverse above procedure. Memory is located under the said cover and also under the keyboard. Not too difficult to remove keyboard. Remove switch panel after removing screws in back of hinges. You will see several screws on rear of keyboard. Remove these (very small) and keyboard will swing upwards and out. Beware ribbon cable connector underneath as removing keyboard. You will then see second memory location. Max mem 1G

Just finnished taking appart and puting back together a couple of
times. The Compals site links are broken for the cy25 but the drivers
at RM will work. Just type in cy25 in the knowledge library. The manual
there works as well but its not very indepth. Flashed with new bios (to
fix sound and performance probs) works like a charm!!!! HUGE problems
with the hardware switch when installing a new wireless card (2200bg),
but found a workaround by taping the 13th pin on the card (do a search
for this, it will show you). Hope this helps anyone in the same
situation. All the best. Sol.

There are 2 ways you can reset your bios.
1. On the motherboard there is a small watch battery. Remove this battery along with the power cable from the power supply. Hold down the power button to fully discharge the system. Wait 2-3 minutes then reinstall the battery and plug in your system. Your reset is now complete
2. Some motherboards have a 3 pin jumper by the battery. Lets say that the jumper is on pins 2 and 3. Remove the jumper while the machine is OFF and place onto pins 1 and 2. Power on your machine for a minute. (Note: Your system will not POST). Shutdown your machine and put the jumper back to pins 2 and 3. Your reset is now complete
This is a great troubleshooting step for those of you having POST issues or no POSTing at all. Like other troubleshooting steps, this will not always work but usually will depending on the problem.
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
