If your removing your dvd drive, disconnect any usb and power cables, hold down the power button for a few secs. You should be able to undo the screws and cables and then slide it out of the holder. Some times there are screws hidden. Usually there are four. If it catches on the front 'plate', you may have to remove it, but be careful, sometimes there are wires attached. This is, of course, for a desktop NOT a laptop. Dont worry about disconnecting your keyboard, but make sure that anything that has its own power is disconnected. This also depends on the design of your case as well. Good luck.

Replace hard drive motherboard


Before you start replacing drive you need to ask yourself if you are trying to replace a bad hard drive and just want to start with a clean install of the O.S. OR are you replacing your hard drive with a bigger one and wish to keep your installed programs, data and documents. If you want to keep your data and documents you need to know how to save the Files and folders on your computer to a CD, DVD or a USB hard drive. Just replacing the hardware involves unplugging all cables from computer after shutting it down. Then opening the case and unplugging the cables from the hard drive and then remove the screw(s) retaining the hard drive. Remove the old hard drive from the case and replace it with the new one, replace screws and plug cables back up watching that that the connectors are correctly aligned with the key(s) on the hard drive's sockets. Replacing the Hard drive also involves installing the O.S. and all your programs and applications on the new hard drive. You can find a lot of information in the internet about this.

Keeps restarting


There's seems to a problem with your laptop, obviously. This behaviour is a bit natural when a computer suddenly found an error it will keep in rebooting to try to free itself of error. Why not have it check again.

It could be the newly installed dvdrom is not properly reset in bios configuration. Have the new drive be redetect. And set it also in OS, change the settings to the newly installed drive. Or maybe uninstalling and reinstalling its driver to fit into the new drive.

hope I help.

Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked.
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long

1. Remove the laptop battery

3. Remove the keyboard securing strip.
4. Remove all screws securing the laptop keyboard.
5. Disconnect the keyboard cable from the system board. Lift the edges of the connector first and then carefully disconnect the keyboard cable.
6. Remove screws securing the power switch board.
7. Disconnect the USB cable from the system board \motherboard
8. Lift off the power switch board.
9. Remove all screw from the support plate.
10. Remove the DVD drive securing screw.
11. Slide the DVD drive to the right and remove it.

Averetec 3200 dvd replace


If you are asking, how to manually eject a disc from a drive, I can help.

If you have a Disc stuck in the drive, you can always use a paper clip to preform a manual eject. Just unbend a paper clip, and stick it in the pin size hole on the front of the drive. Keep pushing until the drive door opens.

Changing HHD on Averatec 5500


Hi Sunergos!
Replacing the drive is real easy! Diconnect the power and remove the battery. On the bottom of the laptop, lower right hand side, you will a panel, with one screw. Remove the screw, and lift the panel. The drive had a plastic pull tab on it. Lift up gently, and pull to the right. Don't lift too high. The drive will come right out. The Drive is held in a "tray" with four little screws. Remove those, and place the new drive in the same way. Just reverse the procedure, to install it, making sure the pins line up the with the female connector. Hint - wait 10 min or so before putting the drive in, or it won't recognize it. Newegg has a 120 gig drive for that lappy for $74. Upgrading my Averatec 5500, I ended up with a 3400+ CPU, 1 gig ram, and a 120 gig harddrive, that dual boots to Vista or XP, and is just as fast in either OS. Good Luck!

Buying a hard drive for the Averatec 3200 Series


I have a tip. Don't forget to set up the drive as master or slave (depending on what you want the drive for). I personally have forgotten to double check this on numerous occasions (its always the simplest thing you overlook with everything) only relizing when I have the case screwed back on and am trying to boot the drive up.
