Question about Sony CRX835E CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner

2 Answers

Drive defect, repair or find replacement for HP laptop?

I have a HP nc6120 mounted with a CRX835E-H5 But the drive is defect! Tray won't open, and BIOS won't detect the drive. So I guess the circuit is burned. And the defect drive halts the system so I won?t boot. When I unscrew and remove the drive the PC starts up fine. (Just so you know ? I have another identical laptop, and if I mount the drive from this one the PC works fine ? so it is not the motherboard) Is it possible to repair the drive?? Is it possible to find a replacement drive?? I have found a original HP replacement, but its VERY EXPENSIVE. I have found another Sony drive close match on the model no. CRX835E-11 I bought this drive, but I cant make it work. It powers on, but is not detected by the BIOS. I flashed the HP BIOS ? but still the same problem. I talked to the company I bought the drive from and they just said: ?HP computers are made so they will only accept ORIGINAL HP parts? Can this really be true?? Hope someone can help. - Michael

What is the proper procedure for opening the dvd drawer on a gateway ne 522 laptop


Locking device or software installed First, verify no locking software is being loaded that prevents the tray from opening. If you are unable to determine this, reboot the computer and as it is booting up, eject the tray. If the tray is able to eject as it is booting, but stops working after loading Windows or your operating system something is being loaded that is preventing the drive tray from opening. This is most commonly software such as a CD burner program that has taken control of the drive.
Bad eject button If you are running Microsoft Windows open My computer, right-click on the disc drive icon and choose the option to eject. If this ejects your CD-ROM drive tray, the button on the disc drive is defective and it is recommended that the drive be replaced.

Back up your data frequently as the hard drive will fail soon. When the hard drive fails you need to install a new one and install Windows on the new hard drive to get a fully functioning computer again.

HP DVD 635 - auto tray open


no ghosts, you either have something jammed up inside of the drive which is keeping the door from closing properly all the way or the door itself is defective.

Either way you would be better off replacing the drive with a new dvd-rw cause the drive would be up to date and the problem with the opening door would go away.

Unable to manually open the CD/DVD drive


There is a good possibility that the switch under the button has failed, especially if this drive has been used a lot. An electronics technician could replace the defective switch, but unless you have a good friend in that business, it will probably be cheaper to replace the drive with a new one.
