    • On the right-hand corner of the laptop, remove the CD-ROM by pressing the small button on the side. Pull it out of the laptop, and set it to the side.

    The button to press can be accessed by a small paperclip through the tiny round hole — not the rectangular normal release button. (The picture shows the rectangular button being pressed.)

    There is some resistance to pulling the CD-ROM out of the laptop, but as long as its screw is removed, it will not break

    • Make sure that all screws and the CD-ROM Drive are removed before trying to complete this step to prevent damaging your laptop. During this step, you will likely hear loud crackling noises. This is normal.

    • Flip the computer back over with the screen facing up and open the laptop.

    • Use the Plastic Opening Tool to separate the face plate from the backing.
