If the dvd-rom drive is stuck you can use a paper clip end to open it. Insert the paper clip end into the small hole located somehwere on the front of the drive. This should push the drive slot open. If there is no disc stuck try re-booting the computer an see if the drive closes on it's own after the re-boot.

Cd door is stuck

If you cannot open it with the button on the door, start the computer and click on the start button, select COMPUTER, it should show the drives that are on the computer, Right click on the cd drive and a menu comes up that has the option to EJECT. See if that works. If it does not, there is a small pin hole in the door slot that you can stick a paper clip in that you bent to fit in the hole. Press the paper clip into the slot till the drive door opens. If you have to do that then you should replace the drive.

How to set a toshiba hard drive to slave?

Power off the Toshiba laptop. Remove the power cord and the battery.

Turn the laptop upside down and remove the panel where the hard drive goes with a screwdriver.

Depending on the model of Toshiba laptop being worked on, this may include the entire bottom panel, a panel covering both hard drive slots or a panel covering the empty second slave hard drive slot.

Install the second hard drive by inserting it into the open slot.

Replace the opened cover.

Replace the battery and power cord.

Turn on the computer.

The second hard drive is automatically configured as the slave drive.

Depending on the operating system and previous status of the slave hard drive, it may need to be partitioned or formatted before being used by the operating system.

hope this helps

My t180 acer doesn't open up the CD slot, what can I do for it to open?


The reason why the drive unable to open because the drive is stuck

- First you need to look for a small pin that will fit to the small hole located on the front of the CD DRIVE
-Make sure that the small pin is at least 2 inches so that you can hold it because you will use the small pin to insert it to the small hole and after inserting the pin you need to push it gently .
-once the CD DRIVE slot eject you can hold it and pull it.
-You don't need to worry because this is the standard way to open the DRIVE IF the drive is STUCK ..
-The best way to do this is when the computer is SWITCH OFF ..
-you can do this while the computer is switch on however it might give you a hard time because sometimes it automatically close..

Note :
Make sure that the pin that you will use is made of small steel ( Atleast 2 inches or bigger ) so that you can hold it and it will not break.

Be gentle while doing it and let me know what will happen ..
Thank you and good luck
Have a great day

Will my 505n be able to run a SATA & PATA hard drive?

I'm going to think it will Not run a SATA Drive, however, it MAY have an open PATA drive slot. There is by default 1 open bay in this machine. Whether there is an open spot to plug the cable in on the motherboard and an extra Plug on the Power Supply for the drive, you will need to open the machine up for. The Connector for the Power Supply is a rectangular 4 Pin plug. This plug is typically black or white and will have 2 corners that are run at an angle. The Data Side of the Connection comes in the form of a Ribbon Cable. There should be 1 running to the hard Drive currently in the machine, but you will need to check and see if has an open slot. There are only ever 2 Slots total on a PATA cable.

How to open case: Seagate ST3160203U2RK External Hard Drive ??

This is one of the mean tricks that the industry uses to discourage people from opening things and then totally ruining them.

What about getting yourself a 5-star-shaped screwdriver? Ask your hardware store guy.

Too expensive? Well - I have a lot of different simple slotted screwdrivers. Normally I find one that fits into 2 corners of these "miracle screws". If you don't have fitting one use a cheap one that is slightly too large to fit and grind it down just to size.

The same trick works with the other kind of "discouragement screws" that have ALMOST a normal slot --- but there's an elevation in the middle of it. A slot screwdriver with a ground-in **** in the middle (Dremel tools work fine) does the trick.
