Toshiba Satellite A215-S4747 DVD/CD crash?

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S4747 laptop, and my DVD/CD drive stopped working for about 2 months, and then reappeared and now works perfectly fine, without any problems. I was wondering why that happened...its not an urgent problem or anything, just my curiosity.

Normally when this happens, what one should look out for is the possibility of it happening again. Like desktops peripherals such as disc drives would have connections internally. If you can have them checked out if there were loose connections. It could also be faulty internals that will break down soon such as ICs in the drive.

How can I access Satellite A215-S4747 hard drive to replace it?


Hi,

Turn the laptop off, remove the battery and shut the lid.

Turn the unit upside down with the back of the laptop face away from you.

On the front left of the underside of the laptop you should see a panel with 2 philips screws, unscrew these 2 screws and remove the cover.

There you will able to access the hard drive for removal and replacement.



Regards.

This sounds like the Toshiba Blacvk Screen of Death issue with early A215 models. Re-boot and hold down the F2 key to bring up the BIOS screen. If your BIOS version is less than 1.9, you must update the BIOS.Go to the Toshiba support site and search by model. If your BIOS is ver. 1.9 or later, then go to the power opetion settings and set BOTH the minimum and Maximum power to 100% for BOTH battery and AC. That will fix this about 90% of the time.
