1. Remove the side cover by pressing down on the plastic latch on the rear and sliding the cover off.
2. There is a plastic latch located at the bottom right side of the drive bays. Flip the latch down.
3. Unplug the power and data cables from the drive you want to remove.
4. Open the front CD storage compartment.
5. Pull out on the bottom of the plastic bezel around the drives. It may be stiff, but it will come off. (The latch in step 2 operates a clip that holds this bezel in place.)
6. With the bezel off you'll see clips on either side of the drive. Press in on the clips and slide the drive out of the bay.
7. Remove the plastic support rails from the old drive (they press on with little tabs that go into the screw holes on the drive) and transfer them to the new drive.
8. Slide the new drive into the bay until the rail clips latch in place.
9. Replace the front bezel and flip the latch back up.
10. Hook up the power and data cables to the new drive.

Voila! It takes longer to explain than it takes to do it.

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

My Compaq Presario PC's cd/dvd drive doesn't work. It won't show on the computer.


Hello there:
Some times drivers act like old people they tend to forget things they are supposed to be doing this happnes a lot to cd rom and dvd drives
so what you can do isto go to device manager and scroll down the list and you will see your cd/dvd rom now just highlight it and right click on it and select uninstall and click next or ok than confirm the removal of the device and after this is completed just reboot the computer and once the computer has fully booted you will see on the task bar found new hard ware and it will reinstall all of the drivers for your device and it will notify you of when the device is ready top be used ok?
I hope that this is very helpful for you.
best regards michael

Replace CD-Rom Drive


solution: open front blue magnetic case door, look on either side of the power button, there are finger holes in the other blue cover.
lift out from bottom to top. this cover comes off, not the whole
case. inside find tabs next to cd drive, squeeze and pull out. note: the side sliders were they come out, they will come off the
cd drive when removed. it is easier to replace the top drive by removing the bottom drive, put in the top half way, then put bottom back in half way and slide them in together.

voice of experience. hope this helps

COMPACT DISC,RECORDABLE DOOR KEEP POP UP BY ITS SELF.PLS HELP ME TO CLOSED IT SO THE DOOR DOESN'T POP UP BY ITSELF


you may need to replace your cd-rom drive, you can try buying a new cd-rom drive for around 30-40$ which also will mean you'll have a DVD-rom instead of cd-rom.

thanks
