Re: NEED CD/DVD INTERNAL DRIVE
You can buy any drive. go for Samsung \ LG. You can get used drives but now a days they dont cost much so its better to go for a new one. Get it from bestbuy or any local tech shop. Make sure while purchasing you mention drive for notebook.

Ensure you have your backups up to date and either OS disc or rescue discs to place a new system on your new hard drive. Remove the larger cover from the underside of the laptop, slide out the hard drive. Remove the old drive from the cradle and fit the new drive to the cradle. Slide it in. Power the laptop up open the DVD drive and place your restore/PS disc in it and on the bios menu select F12. Set the boot device to DVD/CD. Boot from the DVD/CD drive and follow the prompts. When finished, download updated drivers from www.toshiba.co. and restore your backups and programmes. Hope that helps.
Without knowing whether these are long beeps, short beeps or combinations, I can still narrow down a couple of solutions for you. The beeps are a code for what kind of error the system is experiencing. The code is different for differing Bios manufacturers. It is safe to say that either the display adapter or keyboard are not properly connected.
If you replaced the mainboard on your own, I am assuming (and hoping) you have an above average layman's experience with hardware tech.
If you don't already have a SERVICE MANUAL for your model of Toshiba (NOT the USER MANUAL) get one. You can probably find one and download it for free in a PDF format from the Internet.
Try disassembling your laptop again and make sure both the keyboard cables and internal monitor cables are correctly connected.
Hope this helps FixYa! If you need more help, email me back at email@example.com and give me some more information. Don't forget to supply some feedback on this solution here on the site. Thanks!
You can use the Toshiba Satellite guide for removing and replacing the DVD/CD-ROM
drive or the keyboard. On this model you have to remove the keyboard in
order to remove and replace the DVD/CD-ROM drive because the optical
drive securing screw is located under the keyboard. Always start laptop
disassembly with removing the battery or you can damage the system
board if you accidentally touch it with a screwdriver and shorten
traces. Removing the keyboard strip is not very difficult, use your
fingers to release the plastic latches. If you want to replace the
keyboard, do not forget to unlock the connector on the system boar
before you pull the cable.
I'm not positive, but I believe your video adapter card "IS" part of the motherboard. This is not something you want to undertake unless you are familiar with the proceedure. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.
you can't use a restore disk made for a specific hard drive with a much larger hard drive. This information is checked by the restore cd. You would need to contact toshiba and get a regular windows install cd.
