Ahhhh, Packard Bell. There should be a few screws on the bottom side of the case to be removed.

Hey !!!
Just look behind the case for the screws, and use a screwdriver to open it up !!. I can't understand Y Someone can't do it. Open it up and do it.

Please help if you can. I have a computer with an AMD-K6(tm)3D processor and have looked in all documents and utilities on computer to find out how many Mhz or Ghz this processor is. I would like to install a CD/RW and dont know if it will be ok with this processor.

The POST screen usually displays the processor that the system detects, but if this is not happening, look in the BIOS. I believe that the K6's with 3D Now! were usually somewhere around the 300-450 mhz range. It could have been a K6-2 or a K6-III.
Under Start > programs > accessories > system tools > system information, look at the system summary for "Processor" It should give you a heading similar to the following:

Processor AMD Athlon(tm) Processor AuthenticAMD~1200 Mhz

(Yours won't be an Athlon, but it should display the mhz.)
The other option is to trace the serial numbers on the CPU.
If you post them here, I'll see what I can find.
