WRONGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!! I N this case you don't have to work from the bottom of the laptop , what you need is remove the keyboard and underneath of it you 'll see a single screw , thats the one that holds the drive once removed you can slide the drive and replace it .Don't forget to remove the 3 screws in the back of the laptop , one on each side and the last one is like 3 inches from the right corner.

Usually there is a tab at the bottom of the laptop, that releases the cd/dvd drive. On some model you have to undo one or two screws, always at the bottom side.

Remove battery and unplug power adapter before doing the job.

Cannot open my laptop... Did everything from removing the battery, cleaning the fan but still screen says non system disk or disk error replace n strike any key when ready.... Help pls


Please try the following:

1. Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the CD-ROM drive. If there is no CD or remove the floppy disk from the floppy drive.

2. Change your computer's boot sequence. To do this, you must change your computer's setup and the option that controls which device your computer uses to start from. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed. Normally, this would be your hard drive.

My aspire ax3400 wont load disks


Are you saying your CD/DvD drive does not read any disks? If so, are you using disks that a friend made (put music on it) or are you using store bought disks (purchased a music cd from a store)? Most computers have problems with disks made by someone else at one time or another.

Click Start/My Computer and look to see if your CD/DvD drive is showing up in the list. If not, that's the problem. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case, then remove the two cables that plug into the CD/DvD drive then put them back in securely. Sometimes the drive just needs to be reseated. Now see if the computer see it in My Computer and if it will Read your Disks.

When you boot your machine, look and listen for the CD drive to make a click and the light on the cd drawer comes on for a second or two. That means the drive is recognized by the computer.

If all fails, Maybe your drive is broken and needs to be replaced.

I got a message that reads Non-System disc or disc error replace and strike any key when ready. What do I do?


Hi,

Here the reason why youre getting the error message

Remove the non-system disk from your boot device. For example, remove the non-system disk from the floppy drive or the CD-ROM drive.

Change your computer's boot sequence in you Bios. Make sure that you select a device that has boot files (or operating system files) installed.

If you start your computer from a hard disk drive, install a bootable operating system (such as Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7) on the drive.

Ntldr is missing.... when i start my computer, it only shows NTLDR is missing press ctrl+Alt+Del to restart (this is on windows XP) please help... thanks


First check to see if you have a floppy disk in your floppy drive, if so remove it.
Second check if you have a CD disk in the CD/DVD drive, if so remove it.
If there are no disc in the drives, then the ntldr file is missing or corrupted and needs to be replaced. Please follow these instructions :-

Windows media player cannot detect my dvds in the dvd rom player. i have windows vista


Open "My Computer".
Insert a CD-disk into the drive, while holding-down the LEFT-SHIFT key.
Does the label under the CD-icon change?
Remove the CD-disk.
Does the label under the CD-icon change?
Insert a DVD-disk into the drive, while holding-down the LEFT-SHIFT key.
Does the label under the CD-icon change?
Remove the DVD-disk.

If no changes in the icon, after the above, it's time to spend $40 to replace the "dead" drive with a new CD/DVD writer.

My laptop ate my disk


The CD drive is secured by a small small screw which is located on the under side of the laptop, it normally has a small picture od a cd next to it, if you remove the screw you can slide out the CD drive.
once you have remover the CD drive you can undo the small screws on either side of the CD drive and open the drive and remove the cd, reverse the steps to put it back in the laptop.
However please take care and be gentle
hope this helps

Hi there,
I am assuming you are using XP,

update the drivers via device manager and select the device with the yellow question mark,right click update,reboot and restart

if nothing then remove the device via add/remove programs
select device and remove,reboot and restart

should auto recognise and install the drivers for you,
dont forget to do SP2 updates
Good luck with that,

Let me know how it goes thanks

The disk is either dirty, faulty, or scratched. If you bought it recently bring it back to retailer or call microsoft support number that you find on the box to arrange replacement.
If you cannot get replaced only thing you can do is cleaning cd if it is dirty. In this case wash cd in cold water then dry well with a soft cloth removing eventual hairs afterward.
If it is scratched or faulty nothing to do apart getting replacement.
regards
