Question about Toshiba Satellite A85-S107 Notebook
I need to replace the optical drive. I't's notone that comes out by unlatching, so the bottom cover has to separate from the keyboard/top cover.
I have undone all visible screws in the base, and snapped the edges of the bottom apart from the keyboard/topcover.
I cannot get the bottom and top to separate. There appears to be some kind of fixing near the rear edges of the bottom, but I cannot see any more screws.
1. Are there screws hidden under labels - if so which one(s)?
2. Do I need to remove the keyboard (as you do on some other laptops) first?
3. Is there some other fixing I've not found yet?
Hi, this is not the best picture but its thise only one I can find so far. and yes screws can be hidden underneath stickers I haveToshiba Satellite A85 Optical Drive swap - e3bbac5.jpgbefore.
save these to your computer and use a photo program to enlarge them so you can see them.
I hope this helps.

This instruction is for all Toshiba A8 series.
There are 13 screws to remove, including the HD slot cover screw and the battery slot cover screw.
Lift up the back and left side of the top cover about 1 cm ( less than half inch)to release the left latch on the front. Push to the right to clear the volume control from the top cover.
Rotate the top cover and display assembly forward to release the right latch.
Turn the computer right side up and open the display panel.
Remove three black screws that secure the top cover
Be VERY, VERY careful ok ?
Thank you and good luck. *s*
