Are you trying to remove the entire physical drive? If so there should be a small slide switch on the bottom of your machine to allow for easy acess. Try find that first, sliding it and gently pulling on DVD drive.

Just install new hard drive in my laptop....old one frozen. i have an activation key for windows 8.1 pro. how do i install new operating system?


Boot from your installation disc. Insert the installation disc into your optical; drive, and reboot your computer. Normally a computer boots from the hard drive first, so you will need to adjust some settings in your BIOS in order to boot from the disc drive. You can enter the BIOS by hitting the designated Setup key during the boot process. The key will be displayed on the same screen as your manufacturer's logo.
  • Common Setup keys include F2, F10, F12, and Del/Delete.
  • Once you are in the Setup menu, navigate to the Boot section. Set your DVD/CD drive as the first boot device. If you are installing from a USB drive, make sure that the drive is inserted and then select it as the first boot device.
  • Once you've selected the correct drive, save your changes and exit Setup. Your computer will reboot.

I need to know how to remove a DVD drive for a HP lap top.


If your HP Pavilion DV6000 series laptop computer has a bad DVD drive, use the following steps to replace the drive

Purchase a new DVD drive to replace the old HP drive. You can use any slim DVD drive with a 50-pin ATAPI IDE Interface Connector. You will probably want a DVD burner since the original drive was capable of burning DVDs. The drive I used to replace the HP drive is a LG Black IDE Super-multi Slim Notebook DVD Rewriter - OEM version.

Unplug the power cord from your HP laptop. Remove the laptop battery from the back of the computer. This will eliminate the chance of power damage to your computer

Ground yourself by touching a metal object or touch your screwdriver on the ground while touching part of the metal. Unscrew the DVD drive screw circled in the Step 2 photo. Using a small Phillips head screwdriver turn the screw counter-clockwise until it is completely loosened. You may need to flip the computer over to get the screw to fall out. Put the screw in a safe location for later.

Put a small pointed tip object (a paper clip will also work) into the drive release hole on the face of the DVD drive. Use the hole to pull the drive out from the laptop body.

Remove the mounting bracket from the old DVD drive. There are two small Phillips head screws that need to be removed by turning them counterclockwise. Match the bracket up with the holes on the side opposite of the connection port. Using the two screws you just removed, secure the mounting bracket to the new DVD drive by tightening them in the clockwise direction.
Remove the original HP DVD drive face plate from the old drive. It can be removed by working it back and forth to loosen the faceplate. Once it is loose you should be able to pull the faceplate off.

Do the same for the new drive. Once the DVD faceplate is off, match the tabs of the original HP faceplate up and press in until it clicks into place

The new drive is now ready to install into the HP DV6000 series laptop. There is no need to hook up IDE cables and power cables. The new drive can simply be slid into the HP laptop.

Find the screw from Step 3. Make sure the DVD drive is pressed in all the way. Install the small Phillips head screw in the back of the laptop and tighten by turning clockwise.

How do I install aDVD combo in Toshiba 2410-S206?


Pretty simple operation.

On the bottom of the laptop, there is only one screw that holds the module in place. Remove the correct screw, and pull out the old cd/rom. Now you might have to remove any mounting hardware that is on the old cd, and install it on the new dvd combo. Slip it back in the slot, replace the screw, and you are ready to rock and roll.

Now that was easy, wasn't it?

How can i replace my cd to a dvd in my compaq lab top


You'll have to order a drive for your model of laptop (either from the manufacturer or from ebay), and have it installed. Most of the drives in this style of laptop are held in place by a single screw. Power down the laptop, remove the retaining screw, remove the old drive, install the new drive, and replace the screw. Windows will detect the new drive automatically, and then you can install the DVD software. Keep us posted and good luck.

New HDD inserted into Pavilion ZD7000 - will not boot from XP CD


Try your old HDD in it and see if that works. If it does work then nothing is damaged except your DVD drive/Controller. Try putting the new HDD in another computer, installing windows then putting it back in the HP. If all else fails then flash the bios with an updated image and see if that rectifies the problem.
