HP Compaq nx9010 CD drive replacement

I have got a HP Compaq nx9010 notebook and I bought a replacement DVD drive.

I need some destrustions so I can pull the machine apart to remove and replace the drive.

I was hoping it was just 1 screw on the bottom but I am pretty sure that it must come apart to gain access to the drive screws.

Thanks.

Remove 2 screws on back of hinge covers, pry hinge cover, and button plate up and off to expose 4 screws that hold keyboard, remove these 4 screws lift keyboard, remove 2 screws retaining the DVD and slide it out.

You are correct.
The screws for the dvd drive is under the keyboard.
there should be 2 tabs one above the f4 and the other above f12 take a regular head screw driver put it where those tabs are and gently pull down towards the touchpad and the keyboard should come up easily.
Now under that keyboard in the center you will see a opening and inside that opening you will see 1 philip head screw remove that by turning counter clockwise.
Right below where you removed that screw you will see another opening which has another philps head screw in it.
Remove that screw counter clockwise and the dvd rom should pull straight out with ease.
To put it back together just reverse the steps.
If you need further assistance do not hesitate to ask.

Can't access CD


If you mean the drive won't open then
Turn off computer
Locate a small hole in DVD drive lid.
Carefully insert a straightened paper clip.
Gently push & the lid should pop out.
Then you can open the drive & remove the CD
Restart the computer and see if it opens normally and reads dvd's now.

If you mean Windows won't read it then the drivers may need re-installing. Check in hardware manager to see if Windows recognizes it or shows an error for it.

Hp NX9010 busniess, New Harddrive but i dont have the recovery CD


Hi mavetk.

Here you go:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=321852&taskId=135&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=321850&lang=en&cc=us
These are the drivers for that laptop.
Only thing missing is the Operating System but you can also order the CD on the page on the left side menu.
They are pretty reasonable about $20 for the cd or less.
I've bought cd's from HP before.
Let me know if you need other assistance.

Hi, It would seem that your CD drive is not reading completely your installer CDs hence you can not complete the install procedure. Your best bet may be to temporarily replace with a known good/operation until installation has completed. The 1386 should read I386 and is normally in D:\ which is the CD drive and is a folder in the Win XP installer. Good luck and kind regards.
