    Hi,




    1. Have you ever been able to access your cd/dvd player on your notebook?

    2. So if you open "My Computer" you do not see the CD/DVD drive icon there either?

    3. What kind of notebook is this? 

    4. Did you recently install any CD or DVD burning software or image mounting software on this laptop?

    5. What operating system are you running? Windows XP or Vista?

    Please post your answers here so that we can get this solved for you.


    Thanks,


    Kaj

Make sure these items are installed & working previously. Cables attached. Check control panel to see if they are present. If they are indeed there, r=try to reinstall the drivers, reboot & try to use them.

LOST ETHERNET DRIVER


If you have the "Windows XP" operating system then follow these instructions...If you have a second computer with an internet connection then you can search on the internet for that driver...type the make and model of your computer plus the word "ethernet driver" and after you find it you just download it into "My Documents"...after that, copy the driver onto a blank CD disc...Take the CD and put it into your notebook and it should open and extract the file ..If it doesn't open up when you load the CD, go into "My Computer" and then double click on the "CD/CDRW/DVD/DVD-RW drive...restart your computer and remove the CD from the disc drive...Now plug your DSL into your ethernet port and see if it works...if it still does not work then go into "Control Panel" and then "Network and Internet Connections" and then "Network Connections" and then "Create a New Connection" and then follow the instructions...restart your computer and see if it finds the ethernet port and receives the signal through the ethernet cord

CD / DVD Replacement


you will find the manual for your notebook here
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=PCG717&region_id=1

but the model number is slightly different
i presume that the pcg700 series has not changed too much,

sony has a policy of holding back some information for their high-class notebook series, for sure...
try to find video tutorials for repairing notebooks on youtube.com!

good luck

Have laptop HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook serial no CNF53827HP and want to know if I can use a DVD as well as CD disks in it


You can find product specifications for that line of HP Laptops at the following link.

http://search.hp.com/query.html?cc=us&lang=en&search=++&qt=ze2000&la=en

The easiest way to figure out if you can use DVDs is to look on the sliding tray that you put your CD into. On the outside of it, without opening it, you should see where it says "DVD", or "CD-R", and so on.

I hope this helps to answer your question, good luck!

Replacing the dvd cd rom in my aspire 5315. Acer sent me a new one and I dont know how to install it


Replacing the drive in a desktop is pretty easy, but the Aspire is a notebook. You put your question in the wrong category. I have opened three or four Notebooks of different brands before, but the key is to find a good disassembly guide. Dell has them on their web site, but I have not found the same thing for the Aspire.
If you repost this question under Notebooks instead of Desktops, someone may be able to help you more.
