    I have both sides and the front off but am still unsure how to get access to the last 2 screws that are up against the optical drives.

    Even if I took the opticals out there's a plate behind them that is riveted to the case.

    Should be in a "drive cage"....which slides out/forward after you lift up a plastic release on the side, should be colored green.
    Once you remove that cage....you'll see the HDD mounted in it using the usual 4 screws. You couldn't see those screws before when the drive cage was in the chassis bay.

    Got it, thanks for the suggestion. There was a green clip I wasn't seeing and after that it was cake.

    Some old Compaq Presarios require the jaws of life to get certain components out.
