Get yourself a paper clip. Straighten it out. There is a small hole on the DVD ROM drive. Stick the straight end of the paperclip in the hole and it will click a release button and your DVD ROM door will slide out.

I have a HP dv6500 laptop and when i turm it on it shuts off and turns back on every 3 seconds.Just before that happend my DVD/CD rom wouldnt read a week earlier. I can keep it on when I push my B button...

Is the fan dirty/dusty is there sufficent air flow? Try a Cold-Restart, unplug AC cord, remove battery, hold down on/off button for 10 seconda, replace battery, plug into AC outlet, start normally. if that fails Try a system restore/recovery. That's a start. It sounds like a hardware issue, the shut off issue. The DVD/CD sounds like a driver issue. Thouroghly clean the fans, get more air flow, use a laptop cooler if necessary, Restore/recoery if necessary.

It is a toshiba tecra 8100 note book i plug it in and it just wont turn on. at all.

Do you get any lights? Does it show if the battery is charging at all? Try plugging it in without the battery.

You also may have a bad powercord or loose jack inside the computer where it plugs in. See if you jiggle it where it plugs in if any lights come on to indicate it has power or is charging the battery.

I have a Toshiba Tecra 8100, and it won't start up. A few months ago, my charger for it broke since it was so old and dilapidated. I recently purchased a brand new replacement charger and hooked it up, but...

Try to replace the battery or take it out all together. but first check to make sure that the chager is the right one. Make sure it is one of these. you can use this site to get an idea if you have the right one.

The battery is rechargeable, you should have received an AC adapter when you purchased the laptop.

Please rate, Thanks!

Hi my laptop wouldn't start up so I bought a new battery and it still wont start up. I can get the power light and the battery light so I don't think it's the power cord I can pull out battery adn unplucg...

Reseat the RAM.
Sometimes the RAM needs reseating because the RAM module/s are not making proper electrical contact with the motherboard.
If this doesn't work then :-
The RAM module/s could be faulty, if you have two RAM modules, remove the both modules and insert one at a time and bootup you computer to test them to determine the faulty RAM module.

Toshiba Tecra 8100 PC Notebook

if it can boot up windows, then the harddisk is not locked(anymore, after entering the correct password),
a slow performance of windows can be sped up by performing a harddisk defragmentation (open windows explorer, right-click onto harddisk, switch to properties,´then 'extras', perform a defragmentation for drive c:, give it time to finish)

to fix the arkward dvd/usb prob:

again open up win explorer and see if cd-rom drive is available, therefore recognized by windows at all.. if yes test-insert Original CD again, see if it can open it(does the CD/DVD-drive LED flash green several times and do you hear any noise from it?)

if not, shut down and enter BIOS while booting hitting either the Del,F1 or F2 button and look if under IDE devices the CD-is recognized by the laptop itself...
if not, set auto detecton for IDE- devices, go
through available menus until u find USB legacy support, enable as well, exit saving changes, reboot.
Again enter BIOS then change
BOOT DEVICE order sothat CD-drive is 1st,
any 3.5'' floppy drive second and harddisk 2nd or 3rd, exit saving changes again.
reboot and let windows come up again. check for cd/dvd-drive again(see procedure as described above), check if windows does recognize your usb-device(mp3 player) now.

if that does not work and during booting you get message'bad CMOS checksum error' you will have replace the CMOS button-battery on
the mainboard, for it may have gone flat...

this means disassembling the laptop
if that is the case, see a technician to work for you or come again with another query.

hope i could be of help

I need install CD/RW-DVD Model GCC-4243N in Tecra 8100 PT810C-11C52, but in screen show error# IDE1 Bios is Version 2.10, maybe I need upgrade Bios?. The CD Rom old is an SD-C2302. Thank for your help,...

Yeah... that's common. The Toshiba DVD drives uses a different drive select than other people's DVD drives. Look to the manufacturer of your DVD/CDRW drive and look to see if there's a firmware update that will allow you to set the drive select differently. If not, then you'll be stuck with the IDE1 thing forever.

Now... here's the fun part: some of these drives will give you an IDE error, they'll never boot, but some of them will work perfectly when you get into Windows.
