Take off the front plate; don't leave it on the drive. Make sure you use thin paint.

I've heard Crylon Fusion paint is pretty good for this. It's made for plastics, so it won't eat it up. Make sure you remove it fomr the computer befor you paint it, openn it up and remove the plactis peices, then paint them. Don't leave them on the tray (you could, but it may hurt something)
Old Specs:
Intel Celeron D 2.8Ghz
80G Seagate Baracuda 7200.7
GeForce FX5500 (PCI) OCed to 300/500
am I missing anything?


Now: Toshiba Sattelite L35-S2161 running Ubuntu :)
