Spyware and adware are both softwares that came from publishers who intentionally sent these malicious softwares in your computer when you install free internet software download . They are hidden inside the install packages without your knowledge and they are very difficult to discover. These spyware and malware sneaks and spy on your internet activities, your internet habits and then overwhelm you with annoying advertisement popups.

My Toshiba ts-h653 cd/dvd RW drive failed. the

If the drive is trashed, just force the drawer open. If you don't want to do that, you should be able to disassemble the drive enough to get the disk out by removing screws... Sometimes the screws are underneath stickers, or warranty stickers, etc etc.

Hi. I need to purchase a DVD burner for my Compaq dc7100 and need to know what brands will fit my computer. Thanks, **** P

I've checked on the specs of dc7100, and it shows that it has multibay optional for 12.7mm removable drives .

I've difficulties finding the exact DVD compatible for dc7100 since it seems that it's already been discontinued.

However, these are the closest match that I've found. Kindly click to double check the specification if it matches your computer:

How do i remove the dvdrom drive in my hp pavilion slimeline pc.

The DVD drive has to come out the front of the tower. To remove the front panel there are 4 snap tabs that allow you to pull the front panel off. There is a sequence to this. First you have to remove the media bay by pushing the black tab on it and sliding the bay free. Next comes the HD, raise the snap bar and removing the one screw securing it right beside the snap clip. Unplug the connector labeled P3 and the HD will slide straight out. Now you can access the snap tabs for the front panel. Once the panel is off there is one black screw just above the HD bay that needs to be removed. Disconnect the 2 cables from the DVD drive. On the opposite side of the DVD drive theres a tab that you need to push outward and the DVD will slide out the front.
