We have a Pavillion Slimline PC model 3015 UK which we are about to upgrade the RAM Memory, inorder to access the RAM we need to remove the DVD drive.
OK having followed the support instruction here
At present the Drive is not moving forward even though the two cables are out and applying presure to the lever on the RH as per the instructions to release the DVD unit.
The model we have does not allow access to the LH side screws, if there is one holding the unit you cannot see it as there is another metal casing in the way.
YOur comments & advice most welcomed, we need to use the PC on a daily basis.
Whats the best route forward ?

If you have the memory expansion slot at the bottom of the unit that you can use, unclip this from the bottom you will find a screw in the side that holds the dvd unit in place. Remove this and te drive will slide forward.
Hope this helps

To remove the dvd drive, the expansion slot below the dvd does have a brown lever you push on and then the expansion slot slides to the back of the computer and comes out. And like the other comment says you will see the obvious screw underneath the dvd. Once this is removed then DVD slides forward....
