Not specifically you guys, but gosh darn. I obliterated one of my gaming machines because the turd never gave me the key to open it. That's first off.

So, I spent all day taking a hammer to the plexiglass to rip the parts out. Just so I could get in there.

OMG that thing was growing cobwebs and there was spiders every where. J/K


The turd screwed in the hard drive on both sides so I couldn't take it out. So, I had to take a hammer to the other side of the tower, to get to the other screw for the hard drive. That side of the tower is obliterated as well.

Now, I'm trying to take out the DVD player and I think the turd glued it in there. I can't even get that thing out and I don't see any screws to unscrew it.

Computer builders just can't make it simple.. Can ya.

You technical geeks.




I demolished a perfectly good tower today.

Pics for our viewing pleasure?

or it didn't happen


Those locks are very easy to compromise with a simple flat head screwdriver.. Don't know why you mangled your tower.

Probably should've hit up a computer forum or one of your nerdier friends first. Worst-case scenario a trip to the shops for an el-cheapo screwdriver would've saved you a new case


If there's no visible screws on the 5.25" bays, it's probably a tool-less design that uses plastic clips. As soon as you release those it'll just slide out.

I checked that. I don't see no clips. The clips for the release was only for the front section.

Hammer + hard drives or dvd drives = no more working hardware.

Is that the motherboard tray I see all bent over? Geez... You should have been able to get to all the screws without even having to touch that at all... err.. bend that at all. Judging by the design of the case, there are no screws on the other side, because that panel is not made to be removed...

But hey! It's always nice to buy new upgrades! Just uhhh.... ask around first before you go and cause some damage you didn't need to even create.

Oh, I'm not done yet.

Still got to get to that DVD.

The Massacre will still go on tomorrow.

I'm exhausted right now.

p.s.: pinch the two tabs in the front on each side of the dvd drive towards the dvd drive itself and pull outwards while pinching the tabs. Should slide right out.

LOL.
Dude. OP, I mean. This is like... the best thread ever. I literally laughed out loud several times.

Drifer is right on this one - your DVD drive has two clips on either side - it's not screwed in, it's using a design that doesn't require tools. Pinch in the two tabs on either side (at the front) and it'll just slide out.

Maybe for the next tower, take your time looking at how it's put together. You should never, ever have to mangle a case like that to get things out. My goodness.

Okay, I'll try that again.

Didn't work the last time.

Let me see if it works now.

I would say that you used a "Brute Force" Program to Extract your parts.

If you look inside the tower at the back of the DVD player you might find some slide latches or clips are holding it in.
