SONY FPG-FX301 laptop - 1991 vintage
CDrom drive is no longer working. When I insert any cd or dvd the fx301 does not see it. When I look in the device manager the Toshiba DVD-ROM SD-2502 is not working. How can I solve this problem? I have the SONY recovery CD-ROM but of course the laptop does not see it. Many thanks

Matshita BD-cmb uj-120 not present anywhere on my acer aspire 5920g yet its the default cd/dvd drive! help please.


Use HIREN CD. See if there the cdrom is working. If it's working, it's a problem with your windows. Reinstall and you will solve this. If Cdrom doesn't work even in Hiren - change the cdrom unit !

My dell studio 1435 laptop is not opening its cd drive, i cannot insert cd/dvd on it. thanks!


Hello. Find a paper clip. Bend it open so it is flat and straight. On your CD Drive you will see a little hole that can fit the paper clip. Fit the paperclip in the hole and push. This will manually eject your CDRom Drive. Thanks for using FixYa!

Disconnect all the devices from your computer.
Press and hold power button for 30 to 40 sec.
connect all the devices without USB drive.
once the system is up, connect to Internet.
click on start ->My Computer ( Right click)->Manage->Device Manager->Update USB Driver.

Restart the computer and check.

Try the cdrom drive cleaner. If this will not work, replace your cdrom drive. It is already defective if it cannot read cd's or dvd's.

How do i change the bios/cmos battery in a sony pcg fx301


Motherboard batteries are usually attached to the motherboard adjacent to the BIOS chip, they are held in place with a simple clip most of the time, but are sometimes soldered to the board. they look like wafer batteries or hearing aid or watch batteries. look at the number printed on the face of the battery to know what battery to replace it with. the number refers to milivolts+the physical width of the battery. if you can find the proper milivolts, the width or "thickness"of the battery can sometimes be "worked with"

Take the laptop *and* your DVDs/CDs to a qualified technician.

Sony vaio pcg fx301 clock speed


You'd have to go into the bios and change the CPU speed or the BUS speed. I wouldn't recommend OCing a laptop, though, as they tend to get hot enough w/o it.
