DVD Drive is often holded by only one screw at the bottom side of the notebook. There might be a CD icon next to the screw. Look in the manual, there will be a guide for this

How to remove keyboard


First check under the battery, there will probably be 2 or three screws under it with small keyboard symbols next to them. If you can't find this, try unscrewing all the screws on the bottom of your computer that are under your keyboard.
After you unscrew each screw, store it somewhere so you don't lose it, and test to see if the keyboard can be removed. You should be able to lift up the part closest to the screen, and then slide it out towards the screen.

How do I remove/replace the keyboard from a HP Pavillion dv7-2277cl


1. Remove 6 screws from the bottom of the case (as shown). These screws hold the accessory cover.

2. Remove one screw securing the CD/DVD drive. Slide the CD/DVD drive to the left to disconnect it from the motherboard. Remove the CD/DVD drive.

3. Remove all marked screws from the bottom of the notebook.
The yellow circled screws secure the keyboard cover, and the green one secures the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

4. Turn the computer display-side up and open it as far as possible. Insert a guitar pick or small flat screwdriver between the keyboard cover and case and slowly move along the side.

5. Lift the keyboard cover. Be careful, it's still connected to the motherboard. Release the zero insertion force (ZIF) connector and disconnect the cable from the LED board. Remove the keyboard cover.

6. Remove the four screws that secure the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

7. Lift the rear edge of the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard until it rests at an angle. Slide the keyboard back to disengage the tabs on the front edge of the keyboard from the top cover and rest it on the display.

8. Release the ZIF connector to which the keyboard cable is attached and disconnect the keyboard cable. Remove the HP Pavilion DV7 keyboard.

I can't remove the built in dvd rom, i tried to remove all the screws at the back panel but still it won't be remove


Did you remove the screws from both sides? You need to open both side panels and remove the screws. It may also be that the case uses a tool free slide system. Is there a latch you can pull, or push to set it free?

Hello How do I remove the keyboard from an Asus A6J A6000 entertainment notebook? Thankyou


1. Place your laptop on a clean, flat surface and remove all power sources from it. Open your laptop screen as far as you can.

2. Use the flathead screwdriver to pop open the hinge cover. Slowly and carefully pry it open from the right side to the left side, exposing the keyboard screws. Using the Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws that hold the Asus A6J Keyboard in place. Keep these screws in a safe place.

3. Gently tug the Asus A6J Keyboard component toward your laptop display. You are trying to pull it out of the slot that is located near the palm rest and mouse pad. It doesn't take much force, but you must be firm. Once you have pulled it out of the slot, you can lift it up and remove it from your laptop.

4. Take the replacement keyboard and slide it into the slot. Once in place, screw it into place with the Phillips screwdriver and the screws you removed in Step 2. Fit the hinge cover back into place by snapping it in from left to right. Power on your laptop and verify that the Asus A6J Keyboard is working.

How do i remove the cd/dvd drive for my acer3003lc so that a can replace it


You can use the Toshiba Satellite 5205 guide for removing and replacing the DVD/CD-ROM drive or the keyboard. On this model you have to remove the keyboard in order to remove and replace the DVD/CD-ROM drive because the optical drive securing screw is located under the keyboard. Always start laptop disassembly with removing the battery or you can damage the system board if you accidentally touch it with a screwdriver and shorten traces. Removing the keyboard strip is not very difficult, use your fingers to release the plastic latches. If you want to replace the keyboard, do not forget to unlock the connector on the system boar before you pull the cable.

for the acer 3000
1. At the back of the laptop remove the three screws on the support posts for the screen
2. Open the laptop fully and lift the plastic panel that has the power button.
3. Remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard in place
4. Carefully slide the keyboard towards the monitor and lift.
5. To the left of the keyboard ribbon cable is the screw that's been causing all this grief.
6. Remove, slide out optical drive, reassemble.
