Blue ray with TSSTcorp&Prod_CDDVDW_SN-S083A

No, the Samsung SN SO83A does not include the laser that reads a Blue Ray disc. It can read and write DVDs, DVD-DL, and CDs. The Samsung SH-B083L/BSBP is an internal Blue Ray reader and DVD writer; however, it is not a slim optical drive and may not fit a laptop. There are some SATA slim blue ray drives from other manufacturers. You will need to check the size drive that will fit your case. A better option might be to get an external blue ray drive. (Note: any drive listed as OEM will not include Blu-ray playback software.)

I hope this helps.

Replace slot dvd drive in toshiba p500

1) Remove ALL power.
Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) Lay a static free cloth on the table, or workbench you are working on.
(Protects the table, and the laptop)

Laptop closed turn it over, set it down on the static free cloth, Bottom side up.

3) Locate the HarDDrive Compartment Cover.
(Sony's term is HDD Slot Cover)

Looking at the bottom of the laptop, this is the rectangular cover that sits vertical, at the Bottom/Middle of the laptop.
The DVD optical drive is to the Right.

Remove the two Philips head screws which hold the cover.
Remove the cover.

(It has tabs made out of the plastic cover, which are on the opposite side of the screws. These tabs slide down into the Bottom Cover of the laptop.
When removing the cover use care, and do not break these tabs off)

4) With the harddrive compartment cover removed, look at the Right side. There is a square depression next to the right edge, in the middle.
(The square may be colored Blue)

There is one single Philips head screw to remove.
Then the DVD optical drive tray is opened by pushing it's release button.
The tray is used to gently pull the DVD optical drive out of the laptop.

This is a link to a free Service Manual,

Go down to the 'paragraph' that starts with - Satellite A10. (A10 in blue)
Drop down to the 5th line. (Begins with M500 in blue)
Scroll across, and click on P500.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name (P500) it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the Right of the Down Arrow. Go to Page 188.

Or use the Bookmarks menu to the left.
Left-click on the + sign next to -
Chapter 4 - Replacement Procedures.

Then scroll down, and left-click on -
4.5 Optical disk drive

(The Adobe PDF file may be in a different format, when it comes up.
Hover your mouse cursor towards the Bottom/Middle.
In the bar that appears go to the far right, and click on the red Adobe PDF icon )

I wanna replace the DVDreader/writer in my Acer Z5600 for a Bluray unit reader/writer can I do this myself because Acerservice in Holland don't wanna do this for me...

Looking at the image of the machine; the DVD drive is a vertically loaded slot.
replacing the DVD reader/writer with a Blue Ray one... not entirely sure if it's possible without advice from the manufacturer (contact them to be 100% sure).
because of the physical dimentions of the screen; the DVD drive will be a laptop dvd drive not a normal desktop one.... so you could hunt online for a slot loaded Blue ray drive for a laptop... but again no guarantee without manufacturers confirmation.
most machines past 2005 have SATA connections inside for the optical drives; but also confirm this before spending money.

Does HP came up with a solution for blue ray players??? my pavilion dv9000 is not playing my blue ray disk (avatar) what to do??

This happens because this laptop doesn't have a BR optical unit, only a DVD one.If you want to view BR disks you need to install a new optical unit. This is going to be very expensive, take a look at

Just installed memory, but still not working

Try another RAM, or check if your RAM is compatible with your laptop model (Mhz) or remove all components like wifi card, hard drive and optical drive. power-on the unit with-out the said components, if successful, there's something wrong with one of the parts. ^_^

I have an HP Pavilion 9000 that was working just fine. We powered it down for the day and when we went to start it up the next day it would not start. Blue light is lit where power supply plugs into...

Make sure the PS or adapter you are using is good. If it does the same with another known working adapter or battery then it appears that the cmos on the mo bo is corrupted. U might try disconnecting the hard drive and optical drive to see if unit stays on. But if it still goes out then it is definitely the board and a faulty peripheral is not to blame.

If board is bad, time to go shopping since the repair is not really cost effective given the cost of the board and the high labor expense involved.

DVD drive keeps on opening when starting

If the boot priority in the BIOS setup screen is set to thr CD it  will open the cd door every time you boot looking for the BOOT cd.    It will not accept anything else, at that point except a boot cd since it hasn't found the operating system (windows) yet.    By "blue laptop" you mean "blue screen" DO a "Windows restore" or reinstall windows from the reinstall cd or Harddrive partision containing the restore files.
