How do i remove the cd/dvd drive for my acer3003lc so that a can replace it


You can use the Toshiba Satellite 5205 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.

for the acer 3000
1. At the back of the laptop remove the three screws on the support posts for the screen
2. Open the laptop fully and lift the plastic panel that has the power button.
3. Remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard in place
4. Carefully slide the keyboard towards the monitor and lift.
5. To the left of the keyboard ribbon cable is the screw that's been causing all this grief.
6. Remove, slide out optical drive, reassemble.

Need to replace cd player in Compaq persrio 700 how do I do it? no screws in hinge covers?


Laptop off, remove the AC adapter, (Charger), if installed.
Remove the battery. Turn the laptop over so the bottom side is up.

Face the optical drive towards you. (CD drive)
See how there is a rectangular looking panel, on the bottom of the laptop? (Looking at the CD drive, the panel is over the CD drive. Bottom side of laptop)

See the single Philips head screw in the panel, towards the left corner?
Remove it.
Now take a paper clip, and bend it out straight. Make a small U-shape on the end of the straightened out paper clip, so you have something to hang onto.

On the drive tray that comes out of the CD drive, is a small hole. Insert the paper clip straight in.

This is a manual release to open the CD drive tray.
Gives you something to hang onto, to pull the CD drive out.

To install the new cd drive, (Player), just reverse these steps.

[Open drive tray. Slide CD drive in. Replace screw]

Cd/dvd combo drive problem


Pry up the long, thin plastic panel above the function keys. Remove the 2 screws that secure the keyboard (up top, under where the panel was). The cd has a couple of screws that I have seen work their way loose in the past. If you remove the screws and slide your cd out, you will see a black connector. Make sure the screws that secure the connector are tight too. Then reassemble. If your cd is seated properly, you should see it listed as a storage device on "my computer" from your start menu.

I have an ergo mercury 2 im trying to replace cd rom with dvd rr but cant figure out how to release cd rom from laptop


IIRC the retaining screw(s) are accessible once the keyboard is removed. To remove the keyboard, you'll first need to remove the hinge covers then the status panel/harness cover (two screws on rear). The keyboard then slides backwards enough to release the front edge from under the casing.

I have a TSST dvd cd ts l632d and i can not burn cd's anymore, can you help


I would suggest putting the model number of the dvd drive into ebay and ordering a new one. Most are simple to remove and replace with usually one screw holding it in on either the bottom of the laptop or under the keyboard. not too expensive either

HP Pavillion not reading audio CD


It is possible that this is a drive issue, I've seen drives that one of the optical reader device has gone out, but generally it'e the DVD reader and will only read CD's. It's very rare that the CD reader goes and the DVD reader works. Before you replace drive, if it's only music CD's (you didn't mention program CD's), then update your media player. If it still won't play, then unistall the media player and completely reload it. At this point you can replacse the drive.
