I cannot open my Toshiba Satellite 2805 S301 DVD-ROM drive.
Toshiba Satellite 2805 S301
The DVD ROM drive is locked shut with a CD in it. I have tried the eject button and the DVD eject buttons with the Power on, and the emergency release with a paper clip with the power off. Can it be opened another way. How do I replace the drive If the drive is damaged and what is the replacement number?

Hello If your using Microsoft Windows open, Controll Panel , System , Device Manager. Look down the list to Network Adapters and click the plus symbol. If you have a wireless card installed it will show the name and type. Right click the wireless adapter and click properties. This box will tell you the status of your wireless adapter. If no wireless adapter is shown you will have to install a card. If the card is present and enabled you may have to turn the wireless function on by using a combination of keyboard keys or look for a switch on the computer. Hope this helps.
No wireless on this laptop you would need to use a usb wireless adapter

Not wireless ready - as none of the 2805's were ever pre-wired with wireless card antennas. You can install a PCMCIA wireless card, or use a USB wireless adapter. Either one will work - the PCMCIA cards will be faster.
