    I've got a Compaq Presario 1210 laptop with a bad CD Drive.
    Can't figure out how to remove it.
    I managed to remove the battery connector board and remove
    the rear mounting bracket screws, but it still won't come out.
    To disassemble the unit further, I need to remove the metal plate
    that is glued to what I assume is the processor. I pulled hard as I dared
    and it won't budge. Yes, I took out the screws.
    What's the secret to disassembling this thing without busting it?
    Thanks, mike

    been there done that.
    Unfortunately, Compaq have a large number of models with similar
    numbers but different configurations.
    If you found something on that site relevant to the Presario 1210,
    I'd appreciate the link. I couldn't find it.
    Thanks, mike
