    thanks, that was helpful. We had already taken it to a repair place to open the back as we were not able to get it out otherwise. Thanks for replying.

Laura,
You will need to remove the cd module from the right side of the laptop. To do this, power the laptop off. Close the lid and turn it over an lay it on it's top. You should see an oval shaped latch on the right bottom( where the cd module is located). Slide that towards the right hand side of the machine, carefully grip and pull the cd module out of the machine. At this point, you may be able to see the cd and be able to nurse it out of the module. If you need to open the door of the module, unfold a paperclip and place it in the very small hole (just about paperclip size) and press in while trying to open the door. If not, you may need to become a mechanic and remove a cover or two, to get to the cd.
If this has answered your question, please be kind enough to return long enough to rate this as solved. If you have further questions, feel free to ask.
Thanks!
Ron-

I don't know if anyone has had this problem but it drives me crazy. I just bought me a used car that came with a JVC KD-SH99 head unit, only problem is it doesn't have a cd slot (trust me i lo


Open the slot by pressing the up-arrow button at the upper-left corner of the faceplate. The control panel will then slide down and the slot appears. Refer to page 11 of the manual.

Flash bios


You don't want to mess with flashing the bios unless you really know what you're doing.

Also the fact that you don't have a cd drive is another problem in crisis moments like this. Never, Never buy a computer without a cd drive because one day it's going to croak and you'll need the drive.

If you had a cd drive or can somehow get a usb flash drive that you could boot from then you could try the Check Disk Utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Also check your memory. It could be your memory chips or one of the memory slots.

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

My ram is beeping how can i fix them


if 1 beep its - video card
if 2 to 3 beeps - RAM
if it beeps continuously - it the processor

REMEDY / SOLUTION :
1. (VIDEO CARD)- remove the video card clean it up... you can use eraser...make sure to remove the dust/lint .....

2. (RAM)- If the problem is the ram ... its the same.. remove the ram clean it..the same as you clean the video card...but if you put back the ram to the slot...make it sure to lock it up and tighten up..just monitor it that its not loosen...

3. (PROCESSOR) - remove the processor ... clean the white one i mean the paste
(thermal paste) then if you don't have that paste try to ask the hardware im sure they have one and grab it... don't leave the processor if it is not attach in the slot make sure to have that paste first it has time limit in exposing the processor it may cause a problem if the processor wont put back int the slot.. <the main solution is change the thermal paste then lock it up tightly.. the most important thing is just...lock it up so tight..>

that all...

this is only my suggestions ....

Thanks for rating

My seat post keeps slipping! I have put carbon paste etc but it is not working!


guna159-

If you're riding a Speed Concept then you're bike has an aero seatpost binder. If the binder bolt on the expanding wedge doesn't place enough friction against the seatpost, the seatpost will slip. If you don't know what I'm talking about, your local Trek service technician can help you out.

Trying to install Dynes 5 in 1 memory card reader/writer on my Mac running 10.6.4 Can I put the small disk in my laptop drive - it is a slip in slot


If you're worried, put the small CD-ROM into some other computer, and copy the entire contents to a full-size CD-recordable disk (or to a USB memory-stick).

Then, carry the CD-R (or the memory-stick) to your computer.

Lost install cd


The reason your computer doesn't recognize the adapter is because you don't have the drivers that come with the CD.

So, in order for you to get this working, click HERE

Then, download the driver by saving it to your disk. If you don't have internet access on that computer, you can download those files to a flash drive, or burn them to a CD. Whichever you prefer.

Good Luck :)

Cd won't go into the cd slot on the Soundworks--any suggestions?


As far as I know, SoundWorks speaker systems don't have a CD slot. Why would they?
They're supposed to be connected to a computer, which has a CD/DVD drive.

Drivers for sony cybershot for windows vista


There are no drivers for Windows Vista for this camera, nor are there drivers for anything past Windows 98.

If you have a new computer with Vista loaded into it there is a slot for the memory stick in the front. Regardless of the computer the slot should read MS/PRO/DUO. Slip your memory stick in and a screen will pop up showing DRIVE H Memory stick and download from there.

If you have an older computer and upgraded to Windows Vistat there is an adapter you can buy that your memory stick slips into and then plug it in your USB slot. Software needs to be downloaded first from the site prescribed on the package.

I spent over 3 hours today trying to find drivers like you did until I got online and did a chat with a Tech from Sony. Its so simple its silly stupid. Had the slot right in front on my Dell Inspiron PC DUH !!! Good luck Same for Windows 2000 XP, with service pack 3 or 2 or anything past Windows 98 Hope this helps, it worked in a flash once I found out what to do.
