Flip the laptop over so the base is up. Look on the base about in the middle. There will be a small circle icon that looks like a wedge has been cut out of it. This is the screw port for the fastening screw. Take out this screw, now insert an open paperclip into the small hole on the drives bezel door, it should be near the eject button. This will release the bezel door latch, pull the door open and continue to pull and the whole drive will slide out of the base.

I inserted a DVD wrong side into NEC TV NLT-!9HDDDV3. How do I remove it?


There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Need to replace cd-rom drive, how difficult? dell dimension 3000 pc desktop


It is not difficult to change cd/dvd drive.
Open cpu cabinet.
Then remove icd cable and power cable from cd/dvd drive.
Then remove screws of old cd/dvd drive.
Then you can pull it from cabinet from front side.
Then put your new cd/dvd drive into it's position then lock it with screws.
Then connect ide cable from motherboard and power cable to drive.
Then you can use it.
If you connect to drive with 1 ide cable means if you connect harddrive and cd/dvd drive with 1 cable then set harddrive as master and cd/dvd rom as slave you can set it slave with jumper settings.
It is in back side of cd/dvd drive.
There is instruction how to slave it with jumper.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

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.

Dvd drive of my hp dv2000 is not working. it does not read dvd or a CD, and message pops up insert a CD or DVD. drivers are updated. in its hardware config. it says drive cannot be started. do need to...


There is a screw (tiny machine screw) that holds the entire DVD/CD assembly in place. Usually this screw is located by looking on the bottom of the laptop and has a little picture of a cd embossed in the plastic. Sometimes this screw is under a "lid" such as the cover for the RAM or HDD, depending on how your laptop is engineereed.

Find this screw, unscrew it, set it aside and them pull entire cd/dvd assembly from computer. Replace the cd/dvd drive into the slot you pulled it out firmly and quickly.

Turn on and test reading of CD/DVD.

If love is found, replace screw holding asembly, etc.
If no love, replace CD/DVD drive.

Computer problem


if the code-10 is in device manager it usually means 1 of 2 things:
1) the drivers installed are the wrong ones
2) the cd/dvd drive needs replacing

if the drive is removable, remove it and reinsert it to see if it is just a bad connection. if it was working before and is no longer working, the drive may need replacing. if it was working before and died after a system or driver update, use "roll back driver" in the device manager properties box for the dvd drive.

hope this helps,

Ferrari Acer 3200 Cd/DVD Drive Eject Problems


This is a hardware problem and you will need to replace the drive. The hinge screws need to be removed in order for the keypad to lift up. Under the keypad should have at least 2 screws holding the dvd rom. Remove them. If you turn over the laptop, check to see if there are any screws needing to be removed before taking out the drive. If the connection and physical size of the drive of the ferrari 3400 dvd drive is the same as this, it should work as a replacement. Make sure you check the port of the dvd drives that they are the same, as you don't want to force it and bend any pins.
