Not all Laptops are built that way, i.e to remove the screw from the back only and make it come out.
But I will just tell you the 2 situations that I've seen before.
1. Remove the memory card enclosure, and see if there's a screw which can be traced to where the drive is located, and at the same time, try and check other enclosures at the back.
2. There are also some that the screw holding is not even at the back at all. But you can only see it after removing the Keyboard infront of the laptop. So you can also try this one out too.
Hope it helps.
Goodluck!

HOW DO I CHANGE CD/DVD DRIVE IN A TOSHIBA SATELLITE P105-S6114?


You can use the Toshiba Satellite guide for removing and replacing the DVD/CD-ROM drive or the keyboard. On this model you have to remove the keyboard in order to remove and replace the DVD/CD-ROM drive because the optical drive securing screw is located under the keyboard. Always start laptop disassembly with removing the battery or you can damage the system board if you accidentally touch it with a screwdriver and shorten traces. Removing the keyboard strip is not very difficult, use your fingers to release the plastic latches. If you want to replace the keyboard, do not forget to unlock the connector on the system boar before you pull the cable.

Need to remove the cd/dvd drive in Toshiba Satellite A135 S4527 l


Most notebooks have a quick release button underneath for the CD-rom. There may also be a screw holding it in place. It's unlikely that you would have to remove your keyboard to take the dvd drive out.

Replace cd rom with a dvd+rw cd rom in a toshiba satellite


You should be able to, there is usually only one screw holding the drive in, if you hold the replacement up to where the instlled one is, you should see the approximate location of the screw ( may be under another panel, Memory,hard drive etc.., the drive will just slide out, then make sure the connectors are the same, and swap or place the mounting bracket on the new one, and slide it back in place, replacing any screws removed

How to change the cd player on a toshiba L10


The cd-rom drive on most toshiba laptops has one screw on the bottom or on the top under the keyboard that you simply remove and you can just pull the cd-rom drive out and put another one in. Below is a website that has dismantling instructions.

How to replace dvd rom drive.NO release button on base!


Firstly there is a screw on the underside of the laptop that needs to be removed.I ts is located on the edge of the drive.
Next the keyboard needs to be removed. To do this, remove the strip at the top of the laptop containing the power butto by inserting a small flat blade screwdriver at under it and prising it up.
After removal, undo the three screws holding the keyboard and flip the keyboard over.
Undo the screw that holds the keyboards strap securing plate and then slide the drive out.
Be warned though that not all drives work in these laptops. It has to be the exact type for the machine as most do not work.
Assembly is the reversal of the above.
Hope this helps.

Replacing a cd-rom drive


Most notebook optical drives are not too bad, usually only 1 or 2 screws hold the optical drive in from the bottom. Remove the screws, pop out the drive and pop in the new one. For the drive, try here:

Removing the hdd in my toshiba 1135-s125


OK, This is a big undertaking if you are completely new.

1st, if you can get a static guard wrist band - great!
2nd You will be dealing with plenty of screws so keep track

In Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked. Here are some examples:
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

I have .a Toshiba Satellite 1135-S155. It should be a similar configuration, same family/1135-S1xx series.

You will have to remove a total of 9 Phillips screws.

Place the underside of the PC up.
Disconnect all power, cables and Battery from Laptop
.
The first screw is located just under the Toshiba Serial Number / Bar codes, just above where the DVD/CD-ROM combo drive is located.
Mine is labeled (F5). Unscrew it and place in a safe place.
Pull DVD/CD-ROM combo drive out it is an assembly.

The Hard Drive is located under the DVD/CD-ROM combo drive.
The Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is enclosed within a caddy containing the remaining eight screws.

There are four screws holding the caddy rails to the Laptop and four screws holding the rails, caddy and Hard Drive as an assembly.
Unscrew and place in a safe place/ container they are small. Disassemble the HDD from caddy assembly; place your HD in the caddy and reassembly.


Here is another Toshiba HDD access that is slightly more
straightforward than my 1135 series
So you get an idea of where a HDD is visually:

Above is a photo of the Battery sliding out


Below is the Hard Drive Removal

I hope this gives you an idea of how to go about it for your
particular Laptop
