Bought a new DVD drive for my compaq 700

Can anyone help me? I need to know how to get the old CD drive out of my notebook. Do I have to disassemble the entire laptop? Where do I start? Is there a link to some instructions on how to do this? Thanks!

I'm trying to download a program i bought but my E-driver is not reading the disk at all


Do you mean you are trying to INSTALL a program that you bought and your CD/DVD drive is not reading it? If this is what your problem is first check so see if the laptop is identifying your CD/DVD drive? Open up computer and see if you can see the CD/DVD drive if it's not there you need to install drivers for it. If you do see it then you might be using the wrong media for the CD/DVD drive or you just got a bad disc.

first you should go into the bios and set the boot order to make the CD drive first. On that same screen you need to make sure that the CD drive has been enables as a boot device. If you haven't already tried it make sue the disk you are using is clean and actually a bootable disk.

i think this is a common problem we encounter when DVD rom lens is becoming faulty. it can only read cd but not DVD then after some time wont read any disk at all. if your drive still has store warranty it would be best to claim the warranty. i tried fixing this kinda problem but it cost me almost the price of a new 1 LOL.

My hard drive


More than likely the drive has stopped functioning; you can try updating the firmware for the combo drive with a patch from the Compaq website; here is a matrix for the 700 Series Notebooks.

Reformatting compaq presario


I wanna ask one thing, does your compter show CD/DVD drive in My Computer menu? If yes, then its hardware of DVD/CD drive problem, not a virus. Clean the lens of drive with fine cotton swab, hope it works/ reads.
