Compaq Presario 2100 Laptop

I'm trying to take one of these apart to replace a dvd drive. Taken all the visible screws out, as well as the ones under the rubber covers at the front.

But it still will not come apart! Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

Just under the Screen the bit with the on button does it slide to the left look for a pin hole at the back right. If there is one this will free the slider bit. I can only tell from how mine works although it is not the same laptop it may come from the same TW manufacturer. Also on mine the screen comes off by prizing the plastic Hing covers up from the keyboard side screws under that hold it down. You can then see screws that hold the keyboard, Drive screws are under that mine also as one in the battery compartment at the drive side

Hope it helps or gives some ideas as to how they do things
