SOURCE: Can't change the boot sequencefrom bois..for Toshiba Laptop.

What model is your laptop? What do you mean by "activate it"? You trying to reinstall Windows and so want to boot from CD?
You might need to press F2 or the Del key at post to get into BIOS. But before you try, have you edited settings in BIOS before? If not you might want to get a comptuer savvy friend to change the settings for you or perhaps your local computer.
Either way if you have more questions of this didn't work, let me know.
Regards, Chris

I have bought a second hand toshiba external cd player xm 1902b. it wont play dvd's. is it not set up to do so?


This is a CD-ROM drive. CD drives will not read DVDs. You need a DVD-RW if you're going to be burning DVDs or if you're only going to be watching DVDs then a DVD-ROM drive would work.

Were to get a toshiba cd-rom


I searched for Toshiba CD-ROM drives and found only support references to products made about ten years ago. Toshiba shows only hard drives on its storage device products page. I could be wrong, but it appears Toshiba is not in the CD/ROM drive business anymore.

Is there a particular reason you must have a Toshiba brand CD-ROM? Any CD-ROM with the same interface type should work, if you can find a driver compatible with your operating system. If I recall correctly, Toshiba uses Sony optical drives in its laptop computers. (So far as I know Toshiba always used standard interfaces, so a proprietary drive should not be an issue.) The prices on CD-R and CD- R/W devices have come down considerably in the last several years, so you may want to consider one of those if your computer is fast enough to support reliable disc burning operations (800 MHz or better should suffice).

My cd player compartment keeps popping open.


One of two things go wrong with the E machine storage drives. 1. The lens has to be cleaned with a Q-Tip and some windex, do not soak the tip, just dampen it enough to clean the lens(laser).2. These drives use very frail plastic gears that given the slightest jolt, become out of syncronization, in which it must be dissasembled and resynced.Thanks Dana

The CD ROM Drive is not ejecting properly


hi,
Locking device / software installed
First, verify no locking software is being loaded, which would allow the CD-ROM tray not to open. If you are unable to determine this, reboot the computer and as it is booting up, attempt to eject the tray. No power to computer or CD-ROM drive
If you have recently installed a new CD-ROM drive or you have moved the computer, it is possible that the power to the CD-ROM may have become loose or disconnected. Check the cable connections. Bad eject button
If you are running Microsoft Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP, open My computer, right-click on the CD-ROM drive and choose the option to eject. If this ejects your CD-ROM drive tray, it is likely that the button on the CD-ROM drive has become defective and it is recommended that the drive be replaced. CD stuck within drive
It is possible that a CD may have become stuck within the CD-ROM drive. If the CD-ROM drive has a small hole (that is not the head phone jack), using a paper clip, place the paper clip within the hole and attempt to manually eject the CD-ROM tray. If the CD-ROM drive is only partially able to be opened, attempt to pull the tray gently to see if it can be manually ejected. If it cannot be opened any further, it is likely that the gears within the CD-ROM drive have become bad, dislodged, or that a CD is positioned in the drive, which does not allow it to open. Incompatibility with IDE / ATAPI interface
If you have an IBM compatible computer and recently installed the CD-ROM drive and are unable to open the drive, attempt to temporarily disconnect the IDE cable to verify that you not experiencing an issue with an incompatibility between the CD-ROM and motherboard. Once the IDE cable has been disconnected, power on the computer and see if the CD-ROM drive tray is now able to be opened. If the drive is able to be opened with the IDE / ATAPI cable disconnected, it is recommended you use the interface card supplied with the CD-ROM drive or the ATAPI interface on the sound card / motherboard. Bad drive
Unfortunately, if after following the above recommendations you are still unable to properly open the CD-ROM drive using the button on the front of the CD-ROM drive, it is likely defective and should be replaced. Caution: If you are able to open the CD-ROM drive using a paper clip. We do not recommend that you continue using the CD-ROM drive by manually ejecting the CD-ROM using a paper clip. The drive should be replaced and this is not meant to be used as a temporary solution. Additional information and tips for buying a new CD-ROM drive can be found on our CD-ROM buying tips section.

SGI O2 CD-ROM drive tray repeatedly opens


I am having the same problem. I haven't resolved it entirely, but at least I managed to get it working again by the following steps.

First, disassemble the part of the computer chassis around the CD-ROM drive. Follow the instructions for "replacing the CD-ROM drive" in the SGI 02 hardware maintenance manual. It can be done in 10 minutes with a screwdriver.

After you have gained access to the CD-ROM drive itself, take off the top metal cover. Then you will be able to see the tray and the white gears underneath.

In my case, the problem seems to be caused by some misalignment between some wire springs and the white gears. Note when the CD tray closes, the manual eject button (a black plastic rod on the right) should stick out, and the white piece of plastic with a triangular end on the left should push against the front of the CD tray.

Somehow, the gears failed to push the white plastic piece all the way to the edge of the tray, and the CD-ROM drive thinks the tray wasn't fully-closed, and ejects the disc.

To force the drive to read the disc, pull the white plastic piece on the left with the triangular end towards the edge of the tray. (Pull it towards you if you are facing the front of the drive.) You might need to use some force, but I can get the drive to work this way, even though it still "sticks open" half the time.

Good luck, and if you happen to find a better solution, I look forward to hearing it.

A cd broke in my cd rom


I've seen and come across cd-roms where cd's have broken (or in most cases exploded/shattered). In one case the drive flew open and bits of cd flew across a classroom, in most cases the drive remains shut (even the tray can get jammed).

This problem is usually caused by a flaw on the cd itself, a scratch or mark on the cd causes it to 'wobble' and due to the speeds cd-roms spin cd's they come off the 'spindle' inside (all that holds it on is a magnet).

I have taken cd-roms apart and removed all the cd parts and the drive has worked perfectly afterwards. Other times the drive has needed to be replaced, so i would say its purely luck if your drive isn't damaged in some way.

Although the problem could have been your drive. Without being able to get the drive ejecting and spinning cd's again you'll never know... just make sure you don't use an important cd to test it with!

I'm upgrading Ram Compaq R3200 laptop


Found my solution. Was under keyboard. Required opening laptop as far as possible, removing 3 screws from the back that hold the piece of plastic just above the keyboard. With flathead screwdriver lift the right corner of the plastic piece then, with the same screwdriver lift the top center of the plastic piece to remove the piece entirely. Unscrew the 4 screws that hold the keyboard (across the top) and lay they keyboard forward (toward you). THERE is the Ram.
