Solved!

I can't remove my PSU from my computer

HP Pavilion 570-p064
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've unscrewed the PSU to replace it, the replacement will fit but I cant get the old power supply out, it wont lift out and I think the dvd writer is blocking it

@Wiyum,

There is a latch at the bottom edge to unlock the power supply. 

Here is an example of the latch.   Step 6.

CAUTION: do not blindly unplug ANY thing.  As you move the PSU follow all the leads, and only unplug what is NEEDED to remove the PSU.  Otherwise, you will create a situation you really do not want or need.

@Wiyum,

As you hold down the latch (move the PSU) toward the front of the case.  It's only about 1/4 inch.
