    HP dc5750 SFF desktops

    We've just bought a load of these to replace some aging PC's...
    Product Specs PDF
    They came with DVD drives and a Media Card reader in the FDD slot (I'm told there wasn't an option to not have them included!??! I'm not sure... I don't do the ordering).
    Instead of just disconnecting them internally to stop them being used, we ideally we want to remove them altogether otherwise the students will eventually trash them, but I've hunted high and low to find 5.25" and 3.5" blanking plates etc for them but aren't having any luck. What would you recommend I do?
    a) Leave them in and just disconnect them?
    b) Try and fashion bespoke blanking plates from something (if so, what?)
    c) Put proper HP blanking plates in (if so, where do I get them?)
    d) Other (please specify)

    Thanks in advance
    Jim

    Do standard blanking plates not fit?

    The HP Partsurfer website seems to suggest that even they only supply 5.25 plates for this model We have a number of 5150s and I've been trying to find the same - seem to have had a breakthrough while looking for parts for you though. If the styling is the same, maybe you could use those?

    How about getting some 5.25" plates and cutting a 3.25" bit from them and gluing it in? (You'd have to do it well else it could be poked out)...
