ON the base of the laptop there is one screw hole that is marked by a circle with a "wedge" cut out of it. That is the hold down screw for the drive. When you take this screw out, then open a paperclip and push an end into the small hole on the door of the drive, it will be close to the eject button. This will release the door, when it pops out, grab it and open the drive, continue to pull on the slide and the body of the drive will follow.

    Imagine looking down on a baked pie and seeing a thin wedge or piece cut out of it. That is what the drive icon looks like.

I have a HP CompaQ CQ60 laptop... My technician told me that the DVD rom is broken.. It does read CD's and DVD's but it stops.... now I have a CDD5263 DVD rom from a Presario 2500 laptop. Is that...


Hello Dear,

Normally (70%) if manufacturer is same then you can replace the DVD/CD rom and it will work.
From this configiration I am unable to justify whether it will work or not. You can just try to insert that DVD rom in our faulty laptop and if its going in perfectly fine, Just connect the cable with the board (If you are expert in Assembling and Deseembling). It should work.
If you are not expert then Just visit the nearest shop and ask for the connection.

It should work.

With regards

DVD CD Rom is faulty. Need to know how can I remove it from the laptop acer emachine 5118


Turn the laptop onto its top look at the base area casing where the DVD is inserted and you will see two small screws.

Take these out and then turn the laptop back onto its back , use a paper clip and insert it in the small hole in the front of the DVD drawer , the DVD drawer will slide open

Use this as a lever and gently rock the DVD unit side to side while pulling and the whole unit will slip out

If this is the DVD drive that was originally installed in this machine you should be able to go into device manager and update the drivers for the dvd-rom. The drivers should be located the driver cd's that came with the laptop.

Dvd rom not reading discs


did you clean the optical lens? if you do so, then you've got same problem,my suggestion is, you just purchase a new dvd rom drive, because your dvd has optical lens problem. it happened to me a long time ago with my client, what i did i open the laptop then i changed it with a brand new dvd rom drive. If you are going to repair that dvd it is not advisable, it might be back when the same problem.
