The screws on some computer cases are believe it or not behind it's front plastic cover. In addition should it be a Dell it could have buttons on the sides, top & bottom, or a lever AND screw on the rear of it's left side. Carefully inspect your case. If there are no visible screws, buttons, or a lever on it's back then your case most likely has it's screws behind the front cover (I will continue to research this and re-post once I find your model's exact instructions.). If this is the case, feel the bottom of the front cover for a recessed area in which you should find a latch of some kind. If no latch, carefully (so as not to break) pull at the corners of your case's front cover. Most "pop" off easily though some may be a bit stubborn. Once your front cover is removed you should be able to identify how to remove either the left panel, or the computer itself may just slide forward out of the case. Hope it helps.

    Upon my research I easily found your service manual on the HP site. There are 3 screws, 2 on the bottom across from one another, and one on top of the computer's left side (while facing front) you must remove. The side and bottom then slide back a bit then lift up and free. Good luck!!

I have a cd I put in, but do not know how to remove it from my computer need help

1. Open the Computer window on your PC: Either double-click the Computer icon on the desktop, or open the Start menu and choose Computer.

2. Click the DVD drive icon: Clicking the icon selects that drive.

3. Right click on it and choose 'Eject' from the drop-down list.

Try the following only if the above steps didn't work or in times of urgency, such as when the computer is locked up (or turned off), you can manually eject a disc/cd by pushing a straightened paper clip into the tiny hole (the "beauty mark") on the front of the DVD drive.

I need to physically open my zd7020us because the metal part where AC adapter connects to went inside the laptop. Does anyone have a repair manual that would tell me what to unscrew and how to repair it?...

Open the access panelUse the following steps to open the case: WARNING: The edges of metal panels can cut skin. Be careful not to slide skin along any interior metal edge of the computer. CAUTION: This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a noncarpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (such as a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap connected to a grounded surface.
NOTE: If you need product model specific graphics and instructions for opening the PC, search for a support article that specifically pertains to your computer. In the Search field (or Questions or keywords field) at the top of this page, type your computer model number, a space, and the words "opening the case."
  1. Turn off the computer and unplug all cables, except for power, and write down each cable location.
  2. Unplug the power cable and press the Power button.
  3. If possible, move the computer to a clear, flat, stable work surface over an uncarpeted floor.

I have a Gateway 300x Micro-Tower case circa 2002 and I can not open the case, without breaking it. I'm trying to install a new audio card and can't get at the 300x innards. Help!

Most of these towers are vertical style, therefore the big button is just to the left of the Gateway symbol. Push it in and pull the left panel away from the case.

Drivers for intex webcamera IT 305WC i am having the cd but it is not working pls help

I went to Intex Customer Care and found the drivers for their Web Cams but they are listing them by model names such as the "Batman", etc. instead of the model number. To get the drivers for YOUR model simply:
  1. Click the link below to take you to the Intex driver download page and scroll to the "PC WEB CAM" link
  2. Click it. A drop-down box will open up and display the short list of models they produce.
  3. Click on your model and simply download the free drivers for your Web Cam and install,

Hope this solves you problem.

How do you open up a Toshiba Satellite A105?

yep, with Dell you can do, just for that reason. As for Toshiba...I found it will open if you drop it at 8'.....but not at 6'. However, if you have a serial number, call-in center will tell you about your computer's part numbers. I did that for a cd drive 2-3 years back.

Good Luck
