I know on my dell and on my roomates computer there is just a side rails ( id like a slide lock) that holds it in place. if you just (depending on computer) slide the rail down and hold it after your drive is disconnected it should just slide out ( you may also need to remove the face plate on the front of your computer so it can slide out) or a different rail lock is one that you push down a tab ( normally says lock on it) and slide it back and then its all freed up ( again face plate may need to be removed) but like Risingsunn said if you have a computer that isnt custom made im sure if you look on the companys sight they will have the information you need
Well gl hunny

If it is a normal PC, there should be 2 screws on either side of the drive that have to be removed before the drive can come out. Many times you have to remove both sides of the computer case to get to these.

This can vary however from manufacturer to manufacturer. Some put the drives on what are called rails where, if you release the rail it will simply slide out, other times only one side has screws.

If it is a mass manufactured PC (DELL, Gateway, HP, etc.) you should be able to find a manual on their site that would help.

Need to no how to take out old dvd drive and put in a new one


First of all eject the cd draw and leave it open, this makes it a little easier a bit later. Power down the laptop unplug power supply and remove the battery. Turn laptop over, note where the cd drive is and about 6" from the draw edge towards the center of the laptop is a screw, undo the screw and remove it. The cd\dvd drive should slide out with a little persuasion.
Good Look.

Where is the location & how to remove the hard drive for toshiba satelite P15-S470


Hi,

The hard drive is located under the CD/DVD drive. Before you start taking apart the laptop, remove the battery and unplug the AC power.

1. You have to remove the CD/DVD drive. Turn the laptop over. Remove one screw right above the dive and slide the drive out of the laptop.
2. When the CD/DVD drive is removed, you'll see a metal plate. The metal plate is secured by 4 screws. Remove them and lift up the plate from the bay. The hard drive is located right under the plate.
3. After you remove the plate, you'll see the hard drive. The hard drive also secured by 4 screws. Remove the screws, slide the hard dire to disconnect it from the connector on the moterboard and lift it up.
4. You have to transfer the brackets from the old hard drive to a new hard drive. Also, if there is a foil shielding around the old hard drive, you'll have to transfer it to a new hard drive too.

Below is website with a picture guide on how to remove the hard drive>>>>

I have a Medion 2310 Notebook which has a faulty CD/RW DVD ROM and I want to replace it. Can anybody give me the step by step instructions or other help suggestions to solve this problem?


Well,I'm not familiar with that model, but they all come apart pretty much the same. Remove the battery & make sure the laptop is unplugged. Usuall the bezel under the screen is removable & pops off with a small flat screwdriver. Remove the screws for the keyboard. The keyboard should slide out of the way enough without disconnecting it. Remove any shield that may be covering the drive. Remove any retaining screws holding the drive in. Sometimes there's 1 or 2 screws that go in from the bottom. Slide the old drive out. Swap over any adapter or brackets from the old drive to the new one. Slide the new drive in & reverse what you did to get it apart. Put the battery in & plug the a/c adapter in just to be sure. Turn the laptop on & bios should automatically see the new drive & window's will install it when it boots.

How do I remove my hard drive from my Toshiba Satellite R15-S829?


READ THIS ALL THE WAY THROUGH. REMOVE THE BATTERY AND POWER BEFORE ANY WORK IS DONE. HAVE ALREADY BACKED UP ALL YOUR DATA.

Toshiba Support Site warns not to try this at home.

User's Manual does not list HD removal.

That being said.....
this is the instructions for a P15-S479, but may be what you need.

Instructions:
The hard drive is located under the CD/DVD drive. Before you start taking apart the laptop, remove the battery and unplug the AC power.
1. You have to remove the CD/DVD drive. Turn the laptop over. Remove one screw right above the dive and slide the drive out of the laptop.
2. When the CD/DVD drive is removed, you’ll see a metal plate. The metal plate is secured by 4 screws. Remove them and lift up the plate from the bay. The hard drive is located right under the plate.
3. After you remove the plate, you’ll see the hard drive. The hard drive also secured by 4 screws. Remove the screws, slide the hard dire to disconnect it from the connector on the moterboard and lift it up.
4. You have to transfer the brackets from the old hard drive to a new hard drive. Also, if there is a foil shielding around the old hard drive, you’ll have to transfer it to a new hard drive too.
Here’s a disassembly guide with pictures: Toshiba Satellite P10/P15 laptops. How to remove the hard drive.


Remember the precautions and warranty information from Toshiba before you start. Try to have someone who is really into laptops before you begin

Good luck

ps: Other laptops have their HD's under the keyboard, or in a removable door on the bottom.

How do I remove the CD/DVD hardware drive from Aspire 5520 laptop ..i want to replace it with a new one...where do i start first?


It will slide out once you unscrew one set screw. Flip over the Laptop and you will see several small screws. Gauge which one by figuring about 5.5 inches long from the edge of the front of the CD Rom and normally it is the middle or off just one inch either way.
If you try several screws it wont disrupt anything... just put them back of course.
Press firm while unscrewing...don't chance stripping and have the right size screw driver :)

I want to replace my acer laptop Cd rom , from where can i remove old one


Hi,

Here are the steps on how to remove your old CD-ROM so you can replece it.

Remove all power sources from the laptop. This should include not only the AC power adapter but also the battery.

Locate and remove the screw that locks the CD-ROM in place. Some laptops may have two screws that serve this function. In addition, many will also have a sliding switch that needs to be moved in order to remove the drive.

Slide the drive out gently. It should easily come out and does not require excessive force.

Replace the defective CD-ROM drive by sliding the new one gently into place in the laptop bay, the same way the old one came out. Again, excessive force should not be applied. The drive will only fit into the bay one way.

Secure the CD-ROM drive in place by replacing the screws that were removed previously. Reconnect all power supplies to the laptop and power it on. If the replacement CD-ROM is the exact same make and model as the previous one, the system will probably recognize it right away. If it is a different make or model it will prompt you to supply the appropriate software and drivers to optimize the use of the new CD-ROM drive.

Need to replace cd player in Compaq persrio 700 how do I do it? no screws in hinge covers?


Laptop off, remove the AC adapter, (Charger), if installed.
Remove the battery. Turn the laptop over so the bottom side is up.

Face the optical drive towards you. (CD drive)
See how there is a rectangular looking panel, on the bottom of the laptop? (Looking at the CD drive, the panel is over the CD drive. Bottom side of laptop)

See the single Philips head screw in the panel, towards the left corner?
Remove it.
Now take a paper clip, and bend it out straight. Make a small U-shape on the end of the straightened out paper clip, so you have something to hang onto.

On the drive tray that comes out of the CD drive, is a small hole. Insert the paper clip straight in.

This is a manual release to open the CD drive tray.
Gives you something to hang onto, to pull the CD drive out.

To install the new cd drive, (Player), just reverse these steps.

[Open drive tray. Slide CD drive in. Replace screw]

How do I install aDVD combo in Toshiba 2410-S206?


Pretty simple operation.

On the bottom of the laptop, there is only one screw that holds the module in place. Remove the correct screw, and pull out the old cd/rom. Now you might have to remove any mounting hardware that is on the old cd, and install it on the new dvd combo. Slip it back in the slot, replace the screw, and you are ready to rock and roll.

Now that was easy, wasn't it?
