Ther is probably a single swcrew that releases the entire DVD/CD drive and it pulls out. Check your owner's manual or go to Toshiba's website and download the repair/trouble shoooting/owner's manuals and they will tell you exctly what to do.

DELLS usually have a screw insode of the memory access plate or under the battery after it is removed, but I odmn't know where they are on Toshibas.

How to factory reset my Toshiba Satellite A105-S4384


Put Recovery Disk 1 in the CD/DVD drive, then power off your computer, unplug everything from the unit including the AC, remove the battery, press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds, replace the battery and then AC, power on, at the Toshiba logo screen press 'F2' to enter the BIOS Setup, in setup press 'F9' to load setup defaults, press 'F10' to save and exit, now at the Toshiba logo screen press 'F12' to enter 'Boot Sequence', with the up and down arrow keys to select 'Optical Disk Drive' or 'DVD/CD Drive', you will then see 'Press any key to boot from CD/DVD drive...' with the dots counting down, press any key before the count down finishes. Assuming you get back to the Toshiba Recovery Utility menu, select the 'factory default' choice, and return your unit to its out-of-the-box state.

Hello,

Do you mean how to eject the CD from the laptop?

You just have to press a button on the CD-drive itself to release the CD.

If you need assitance, please post back more info regarding the problem.

Toshiba Satellite A105 PC Notebook, DVD/CD Drive. The Drive is reading the DVD but not the CD. How do I change the settings for the drive to read both


You can't just change it from pio to udma. Go to Control Panel, System,Hardware,Device Manager, then expand IDE ATA/ATAPI, then right click on Primary IDE and select uninstall. Do the same for secondary IDE. Then just reboot your system, and it will autodetect all IDE devices. After that when you check, you should not have any devices in PIO, and your burner should work correctly. If not, stick it in a hyperbaric chamber for 2 days and see if that helps. smile.gif __________________

Need to remove the cd/dvd drive in Toshiba Satellite A135 S4527 l


Most notebooks have a quick release button underneath for the CD-rom. There may also be a screw holding it in place. It's unlikely that you would have to remove your keyboard to take the dvd drive out.

How to change hard drive in Toshiba Satellite Notebook


Underneath the notbook should be a compartment to access the drive. It should be held be a couple of screws. Make sure the power is out before removing the drive. Look for one that has the same interface as you are replacing. It could drain the battery life of your notebook a little fast but if you already have a 92 gb and your doubling the size of it, it will be a slight drain to it.

The drive is faulty. You need to replace the drive. The reason the DVD still works is because a combo drive has 2 different lasers; one for the CD and one for the DVD. So the CD laser is faulty.

DVD broken - How to replace it


Hi,

I found this on the toshiba website http://askiris.toshiba.com/ToshibaSupportSite/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=ex&bbid=bb35&url=&dialogID=45113241&stateId=0%200%2045111928

Basically it says 'If the internal CD or DVD drive is removable, it's usually secured in place by a locking switch and a separate eject switch / lever on the bottom or side of the computer.'

I couldn't find a decent manual with pictures, hopefully this helps
