Open the RAM door and remove the two screws underneath. The optical drive will slide right out.

My optical Disk is stuck on my Compaq Presario CQ57 and I need to buy a new one. Where can I find one?


It uses a basically standard dvd writer ...(slim ) and will work with any of these ones...try to get one with almost the same specifications ..regarding speed and power usage ..

If it is stuck ..and you Think it may work after all ..try to open it by inserting a sharp object into that little hole it has in the front ...This will manually open the drive and if it has something obstructing it ..you may remove and see if it works ..Also try top remove the drive by unscrewing it from the back first ..and place it back and press it well ..cause it may be just not making contact in the board level ..

The prong where I plug in my battery charger broke off in my laptop. What can I do?


This is the DC Power Jack. Aslo known as the DC-IN jack.

You'll have to have it replaced.

IF, this is a reference to a Compaq Presario V2000 Series Notebook PC, (The exact Model Number, is on the bottom of the laptop in a white Service Tag),
the DC Power Jack is soldered directly to the motherboard.

The DC Power jack resembles this one,

http://www.laptopjacks.com/view_part/Compaq-Presario-laptop-power-jack-CQ21325.html

[At the top of the page you can click on the multiview (Three views shown), to enlarge it]

You can see the size of the jack. Not much larger than the AC adapter,
(Charger), plug.
The rectangular dark body of the jack is made of plastic. The metal center pin is riveted to the body.

This is the Maintenance and Service Guide, (Really a Service Manual), for the Compaq Presario V2000 Series Notebook PC's,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=500508&

It's a download page for the Maintenance and Service Guide, from HP Support. (As you know HP bought out Compaq)

Left-click on -
Compaq Presario v2000 Notebook PC, HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook PC, HP Compaq nx4800 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

(Last file in the list)

This is a PDF file. (The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files)

After you click on the link it may take up to 24 seconds to see the first page. The file is downloading in the background.
(First page usually comes up faster)

After you see the first page, the file may still be downloading. (Blue download progress bar)
I advise letting it fully download, before looking through it.
You may break the download connection otherwise.

This shows you the inside of your laptop. Shows you how various components are removed, and installed.

[Tells you about Static, and how it's harmful to your computer, therefore before diassembling the computer, you should take appropriate measures. ESD wrist s-trap. Price is around $6]

Included this file download link in case you are curious about the inside of your computer.

To repair, or replace, (IN your case it would be replace), the tech has to,
1) Wear an ESD wrist s-trap, and have the alligator clip attached to a good ground source. [Electro Static Discharge]

The human body carries Static electricity. Static wil fry out the delicate hardware components inside a computer. (Laptop or desktop)
Can do it in less than the blink of an eye, and you won't see it, or feel it.

The ESD wrists-trap helps to prevent this. (It works, trust me. IF, you have the alligator clip attached to a good ground source)

A multi-compartment container is used for the various areas the screws come out of, and the various screws. There are over 60 screws, and 12 different types. Some look the same, but they Aren't.

2) The laptop must be Completely disassembled down to the bare motherboard in hand.
No Processor, Ram Memory, Wireless module, Harddrive, Optical drive, (DC/DVD drive), and other hardware components, can be attached to the motherboard.

Bare motherboard.

3) The DC Power Jack, (DC-IN), is unsoldered from the motherboard, using careful desoldering techniques.
The new jack is then soldered in using careful soldering techniques.
(Very few techs are qualified to do this anymore. They just want to replace the motherboard)

4) Then the laptop is reassembled, power sources are attached once more, and the laptop is tested.

Remove the optical drive:
1. Position the computer with the left side toward you.
2. Remove the Phillips PM2.5×7.0 screw 1 that secures the optical drive to the computer.
3. If needed, insert a thin tool, such as a paper clip 2, into the release access. (The disc tray is partially ejected
from the optical drive.)
4. Grasp the bezel and slide the optical drive 3 out of the computer.

Compaq-presario-cq60-104tu audio problem


The only thing that comes to mind is a problem with the headphone jack. The jack, itself, could be bad and not opening the speaker circuit when the head phones are plugged in. The other thing might be that the plug on the head phones is not completely compatible with the jack. The second case could possibly be resolved by trying a different type, or brand, of headphones. The first problem would require tearing the laptop down to the point of being able to adjust or replace the jack.
Hope this is of some help and have a good one!
