1. Turn off laptop and disconnect all cables. Close lid tight and turn your laptop upside down on one layer of a soft cloth (to avoid scratching case).

2. There should be many screws visible beneath the laptop. ONE of them (only one) will be located in a line from the center of CD, about 12.5-13.5cm (5 inches) towards the center of laptop. Remove that screw (may require a TORX or other special screwdriver). If there is no such screw, then ignore all the rest of this and go to a shop. Your CD must be disassembled to remove the CD. Otherwise, proceed to step 3 if you successfully located and removed the screw.

3. Now, look at the face of the CD tray. There will be a small hole in there somewhere near the eject/open button. Press a small straightened paper clip into the hole gently and STRAIGHT, not at an angle.

4. You should hear a light click, and the CD will open. Gently return the laptop to normal, right-side-up.

5. Gently pull the CD tray out, and gently pull until the whole CD case comes out.

Once the screw is removed, you may need to insert the tip of the screwdriver, behind a small curved plate, where screw went in. Also, on outside of the laptop, there is usually a small button/tab key, which may be pressed in, then retracted, to pull the DVD drive out of it's bay.

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.

I've taken a lot of drives out of laptops and usually they are easy to remove and just have a button you need to press to pop them out or they are held with a single screw underneath around the center back of the drive. Those two possibilities should have you covered, and I have rarely found optical drives to be difficult to remove from laptops.

Removing/replacing dvd rom drive


Hi Jerry
I have written down steps on how to remove the DVD-Rom drive for you.
Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked.
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

When you are taking apart a laptop you'll have to deal with lots of screws. Keep everything organized. I keep them in small cups separated easier to find and don’t get lost.
1. Remove the laptop battery
2. Carefully lift off the securing strip at the top of the keyboard.
3. Remove the keyboard securing strip.
4. Remove all screws securing the laptop keyboard.
5. Disconnect the keyboard cable from the system board. Lift the edges of the connector first and then carefully disconnect the keyboard cable.
6. Remove screws securing the power switch board.
7. Disconnect the USB cable from the system board \motherboard
8. Lift off the power switch board.
9. Remove all screw from the support plate.
10. Remove the DVD drive securing screw.
11. Slide the DVD drive to the right and remove it.
12. Slide in the new DVD drive and follow this backwards.

Hope this helps it is not hard just have to take time an becareful when removing the securing strip at the top of the keyboard to get to screws.

Any questions I will be glad to help answer for you.

Replacing dvd/cd-rom drive on gateway laptop


Without knowing your specific laptop, look underneath about 5 inches from the edge where the drives slides in. You should see a screw there but not holding a panel.

Remove that one screw, pop the drive open and give it a gentle pull, it should just slide out.

Most laptop drives are the same with the exception of the faceplate and the bracket (surround) that is attached to the bare drive.
This is removable and can be transferred to another drive. Careful not to lose any of those tiny screws =)

INSTALLATION OF DVD ROM DRIVE FOR TOSHIBA SATELLITE A45-S150


Underneath your satellite there should be either a spring loaded lock to unlock/release the drive, or there could be a panel to remove that will expose a single screw that holds your optical drive in place. Releasing the drive with whichever locking mechanism is securing it should allow you to remove and install the new drive (if it's a screw, don't forget to replace it after the new drive is installed).
I hope this helps, and Good Luck.
